Rockets’ Paul, Harden show they can work together

It didn’t take long to determine the Rockets’ playmaker. Newcomer Chris Paul dribbled the ball upcourt on Houston’s first possession. And the next. And the next. The first five times the Rockets had the ball Tuesday night in the season opener against the Warriors at Oracle Arena, Paul was the point guard. On the sixth, Paul deferred to James Harden, who brought the basketball up. It was the first regular-season game in which the two superstar point guards played in the same backcourt, the result of an offseason trade to help the Rockets try to catch up...

Rockets beat Warriors as James Harden, bench lead wild comeback on opening night

Rockets beat Warriors as James Harden, bench lead wild comeback on opening night

The Rockets’ new names all contributed to upset Golden State at the Oracle on opening night. The Houston Rockets showed some true grit, battling back from a 17-point deficit, to defeat the Golden State Warriors 122-121 in stunning fashion to cap off the first night of NBA action. The Rockets took the lead late on some timely defense by P.J. Tucker, Trevor Ariza, and Luc Mbah a Moute, and a last-second swish by Kevin Durant that would have won the game for the Warriors was waved off after replay showed the ball was clearly still in his hand when the game’s final red light appeared over...

James Harden will be even better this year with Chris Paul

What should we expect from the Beard this season? Coming off of the greatest season in his career, the pressure is on James Harden now more than ever to deliver. Not for himself, but for his team. His 29.1 points, 8.1 rebounds per game and league-leading 11.2 assists per game have already solidified his place in the league’s highest echelon of players, but now is his time to take the reins and lead his Houston Rockets to the promised land. The biggest question mark for Harden this season will involve his leadership skills. Former coach Kevin McHale questioned whether he has those...

Who has better court vision? Steph Curry vs. Chris Paul

Versus Vol. IV, Court Vision: Curry versus CP3 The NBA season is about to kick off and IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME! There has been a lot of activity this past off-season with big name players traded to new teams. One of those players was none other than Chris Paul. Although the Houston Rockets’ acquisition of Paul didn’t exactly send the Warriors into a panic, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr did acknowledge how difficult it will be to guard Paul next to James Harden, as reported by Mark Medina of the Bay Area News Group. So even if Kerr initially joked he just went to dinner upon...

Rockets use defense to down Grizzlies

Rockets use defense to down Grizzlies

The shots weren’t falling, so the Rockets clamped down. Our Houston Rockets appear to have grown. Last year, this very well may have been a game the Rockets lose. Houston shot just 38.8 percent from the field and were only 14-46 from beyond the arc, but they used some shut-down defense to squeeze the Memphis attack in a 101-89 victory over the Grizzlies to move to 4-0 on the preseason. James Harden led the way with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists, but he shot just 2-13 from the field. Chris Paul was just 3-12 for 9 points. No, it was Clint Capela, who finished with 15 points, 9...
