Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports Can the Rockets end their road trip strong? The Houston Rockets play the last game of their three-game road trip tonight against the Chicago Bulls. John Wall and Danuel House Jr. will still be out, but tonight marks the debut of Victor Oladipo for the Rockets. Also joining him will be Eric Gordon and DeMarcus Cousins. It may not be our true first look at the new era of Rockets basketball, but, hey, we get to watch a new player make their debut for Houston for the 746th time in the past three years, and that’s always fun.

Rockets vs. Bulls game preview: new faces in new places

Photo by Randy Belice/NBAE via The Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls met twice in the preseason, with the teams splitting a pair of games in Chicago. As the Rockets travel to Chicago for the teams’ first regular season matchup, Houston is quite a different team. James Harden and Christian Wood missed those first two games. Obviously Harden won’t be suiting up tonight, but Wood will. Additionally, the Rockets welcome in Victor Oladipo into the squad from the Harden trade. The Rockets hope to have some combination of DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Gordon, and Sterling Brown...

New-look Rockets open post-Harden era with 109-105 victory over Spurs

Photo by Ronald Cortes/ No Harden, no problem. So how about them apples? The Houston Rockets opened up the post-James Harden era also playing without John Wall, Eric Gordon, and Danuel House, but they played hard, perhaps harder than they’ve played all year, and used some clutch fourth-quarter play from Christian Wood and Sterling Brown to edge past the San Antonio Spurs 109-105. The Rockets were down five points with three minutes left in what was a very good and fun-to-watch game, but both Wood and Brown hit big shots, while P.J. Tucker and Jae’sean Tate made...

Can Trading Harden Now, for Less Than Harden Was Then, Make Sense?

Can Trading Harden Now, for Less Than Harden Was Then, Make Sense?

Merely averaging 39 per game. | Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports It may not be a choice, but if it is... This is not a serious trade speculation piece. This is not even a silly trade speculation piece. I’d vastly prefer Killer James Harden just give it a year with the John Wall, Boogie Cousins, Potentially Good Eric Gordon, Christian Wood, 6’5” Assault Team, Rockets. Part of the reason is that I believe I have invested too much of my life into defending James Harden. He’s like having a brilliant, but controversial, child, in some ways. I KNOW he’s great. I...
