Eric Gordon's sprained left big toe was not normal on Friday and neither was the pace and 3-point rhythm of the Houston Rockets. Pace and rhythm returned in a big way for the Rockets, who also mixed in effective second-half defense against the worst team in the league. Gordon scored 24 points, James Harden recorded his 12th triple-double of the season with 22 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds as Houston snapped its first losing streak of the season with a 137-112 rout of the Brooklyn Nets Sunday night.

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon (left big toe) will not play Wednesday versus the Minnesota Timberwolves. What It Means: Gordon also sat out Tuesday's contest against the Charlotte Hornets and should be considered questionable for Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies after he didn't travel with the team. James Harden will be even busier than usual -- he finished with 40 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists on Tuesday -- and Corey Brewer should also benefit. Brewer is projected to turn in 7.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes against the...

Rockets get back on winning track with blowout in Brooklyn

Another James Harden triple-double led to an easy W. The Rockets took the Brooklyn Nets, and their first two-game losing streak of the season, out to the woodshed on Sunday evening, crushing the competition 137-112. James Harden played just a couple of minutes in the fourth quarter, long enough to put the final nail in the Nets’ coffin and get his 12th triple-double of the season, going for 22-11-11. It’s crazy to think that just over a month ago, Harden got the 14th triple-double of his career, tying Hakeem Olajuwon’s franchise record. Now it seems painfully obvious that Harden will...

James Harden gets another triple-double as Rockets beat up Nets

Houston Rockets guard James Harden posted another triple-double on Sunday, his 12th of the season, with 22 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, four 3-pointers, one steal and one block. What It Means: Against the lowly Nets, the Rockets dropped 74 points in the first half. There wasn't mush need for the starters in the fourth quarter obviously, or Harden probably could have had an even bigger game. Harden is behind his former teammate Russell Westbrook in triple doubles this season, but Harden's Rockets are a much better team, which probably makes up for it. Harden is averaging...

How the Rockets became darlings of the NBA again

How the Rockets became darlings of the NBA again

Houston is now third in the Western Conference with a record of 31-10 (.756) and James Harden is in the middle of one of the great individual seasons in NBA history, so it’s easy to forget what the perception of the Rockets as a team, and organization, was just a few months ago. After a comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the Western Conference semifinals against the Clippers in the 2015 playoffs, with Harden (who finished second in MVP voting) and Dwight Howard, the Rockets had put together a one-two punch that many expected to compete for the best record in the league. Forward to last summer...
