Houston Rockets vs. Memphis Grizzlies preseason game 2 preview

Houston Rockets vs. Memphis Grizzlies preseason game 2 preview

Houston closes out the preseason tonight in Memphis. It’ll be the end to a pretty uneventful preseason, which is exactly what you want. Instead of heading to Birmingham, this game is actually in Tennessee. The Rockets will return to Houston to begin the season proper on Wednesday. That game will be at the same time as Game 4 of the ALCS with the Houston Astros also in town, so that will be fun. Tonight, the Rockets will look to get a little work in for the rotation players and then get one final look at the end of the bench guys. I’m sure James Harden will try to play 30+ minutes, but...

That viral James Harden video? Yeah, Steph Curry did it first.

We’ve got the receipts. During a preseason game on Tuesday, James Harden set NBA Twitter on fire. The reigning MVP was winding down the third quarter clock in a contest between his Houston Rockets and the Shanghai Sharks when he busted out a wild variation of his signature crossover. Rather than dribble the ball, Harden switched hands behind his back, before firing up a three-pointer. 9 THREES for Harden (37 PTS)! 24 3PM for the @HoustonRockets! #NBAPreseason pic.twitter.com/qI7x6XfcT2— NBA (@NBA) October 10, 2018 It was mesmerizing.

Rockets pour on the 3s in their 128-86 win over the Sharks

James Harden leads the Rockets with 37 points in their route of the Shanghai Sharks. If this were a regular season game, the Houston Rockets would have set an NBA-record 28 three-pointers made against the Shanghai Sharks. Unfortunately for them, it was just a preseason game, and they’ll have to settle with the 128-86 win over Yao Ming’s team. The Rockets set the tone early in the first half of the game. Of the 49 field goal attempts taken, 39 of those were threes, and the Rockets made 17 of them for an outstanding 43.6% from behind the arc and the big 73-42 lead at the break. Chris...
