Sixers Dismantle the Rockets

Sixers stop Harden to pick up the win in prime time Cocaine, PCP, Acid, Mushrooms, Mountain Dew Ice. None of those drugs could match the feeling that the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team just pumped into my body in the 121-93 win over the Houston Rockets. Sixers 10-Day signee Corey Brewer played like a drunk pirate who had been marooned on an island before Elton Brand called him up and said, “suit up, but keep drinking.” Read this next part in the Stefon voice. This game had everything… Joel Embiid jawing James Harden. JJ Redick did a CP3 dribble? An Amir Johnson 3-pointer? A...

Rockets lack rim-running threat, skills with Clint Capela out

As much as the Rockets have juggled their lineups and center rotation since the injury to Clint Capela, they have not been able to replace the rim-running production and threat from that part of their offense. The addition of Kenneth Faried, who will sign a free agent contract with the Rockets after he clears waivers, could change that. He has a long history as a pick-and-roll threat, including on the 2014 USA Basketball team with James Harden.

Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers game preview

We’re reaching a point in the season where I don’t know what the hope for anymore. Do the Rockets really have what it takes to challenge Golden State this year, even if Chris Paul and the other injured Rockets come back completely healthy? I’m just not sure. Should we just appreciate James Harden’s regular season, knowing full well that it will probably come back to haunt him and Houston in the playoffs when he inevitably runs out of gas? Should Houston look to next year, when the Warriors could lose two of their five All-NBA players? Anyway, a team with an equally interesting...
