Speed is the name of the game for Rockets without Dwight Howard

The Rockets went into the final stretch before the All-Star Game determined to run far more consistently than they had through January, when their commitment to their break was sporadic. They needed to be more up-tempo to make up for the loss of Dwight Howard, but also to prepare for games like Wednesday’s against a […]

James Harden is finally the consensus MVP favorite

Just about. James Harden has been sniffing the top of MVP leaderboards all season long. There are places he's been No. 1 here and there, places he's been behind Stephen Curry, Marc Gasol and Anthony Davis at varying times, and other places where they simply write that they don't enjoy watching his game. Eat crow, you filthy animals. The Rockets had a huge lead on the Hawks last night, but crumbled without him in the fourth quarter. With him and no Dwight Howard, the Rockets have a better record than when Dwight's in the lineup. He's the league leader in scoring, win shares and free throws....

The Houston Rockets are legitimate title contenders

And they're not waiting around for Dwight Howard. As one of the top three teams in the Western Conference for the majority of the season, the Houston Rockets have been labeled by most of the national media as a team that is more of a pretender than a championship contender in 2015.

Robert Covington Won't Answer Dwight Howard's FaceTime Calls

Answer your phone, Robert! Both Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington were at the Liacouras Center last night taking in Temple's game against the University of Houston last night. Apparently someone who wanted to be there in spirit last night was the Houston Rockets Dwight Howard. Howard spent some time with Canaan and Covington while all three were teammates in Houston, and clearly wanted to check in on his friends. Robert Covington wasn't feeling it. From a tipster: Covington & Canaan at the Temple game. Dwight Howard kept trying to FaceTime RoCo, but Covington kept rejecting....

Kobe Bryant confirms he squashed trade to Pistons in 2007.

The deal was confirmed by the man himself to involve Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince. On the Grantland Basketball Hour, featuring noted Boston homer Bill Simmons and noted Detroit homer Jalen Rose, there is a segment where they answer questions in the mailbag.  In the most recent edition of the GBH, Kobe Bryant was a special guest.  When the mailbag rolled around, several interesting questions came out. What would you do differently about being Dwight Howard's teammate?... Nothing. How many championships should Kobe and Shaq have won?... At least five, maybe six. Should the LA Lakers...

Rockets Standings Stay All Quiet Over All Star Break

No budges in the top of the Western Conference or the Southwest Division as the Houston Rockets power on without Dwight Howard. No budges and no movements over the All-Star break for the Houston Rockets or the Southwest Division. The Rockets went 1-1 going into the break with a win against Phoenix and a loss against the Clippers. They don't return to action until Friday and face a daunting eight games in two weeks against six playoff teams. That's life in the Western Conference. All without Dwight Howard. The big story this week won't be the NBA standings, but it will be the upcoming trade...

Replacing Dwight Howard’s rim protection no easy task for Rockets

The Rockets have missed Dwight Howard in a variety of areas, but none as much as when he is not available to provide the last line of defense at the rim, Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. “We’ve been able to rebound OK,” McHale said. “There’s been games we got hurt and some period inside of […]

Twitter reacts to Dwight Howard's suit

Dwight Howard's strong print on his jacket last night had the internet a buzz. Dwight Howard is unfortunately for the Rockets sidelined for an unknown amount of time. That didn't stop the polarizing big man from making headlines on the bench with his jack last night. It had a STRONG print to say the least. Howard's jacket looked liked like it was from the IKEA catalog or the John Daly collection. Fashion has become a part of the NBA landscape but this maybe going too far. Twitter had a field day with the Dwight, here are some of the best tweets: Why is Dwight Howard dressed like a place...

Dwight Howard and that jacket

With all the Daryl Morey/Charles Barkley chatter today in Rockets circles, almost lost in the shuffle was the jacket Dwight Howard wore Tuesday night in Phoenix. OK, it would be pretty hard to lose sight of that jacket. Unfortuantely, Howard won’t be part of this weekend’s NBA All-Star fashion show. Of course, Howard’s sartorial selection […]

With center Dwight Howard possibly out through March, the Rockets insist that they are going to be the same team without him. “Obviously Dwight brings so much to this team and you can’t just replace him, but we are going to play the same way we always do,” guard James Harden said. “We play the […]
