Houston Rockets guard Lou Williams finished with 31 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 7 3-pointers in 31 minutes of action as the Rockets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 137-125 on Sunday. What It Means: Williams saw plenty of opportunities on offense with Ryan Anderson out in this one, he could see an even bigger role moving forward if James Harden (wrist) sits out at all. Williams finished Sunday's win with a big 31.2 nERD, per numberFire Live. That brings his season-long mark to a 4.8, which ranks 41st in the NBA and 3rd among Rockets players this...

Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson will "probably" be out for Tuesday's game against the Golden State Warriors, coach Mike D'Antoni said. What It Means: "I hate it for Ryan," D'Antoni said. "I hate that he's not here. But we have enough to cover it up." Anderson has already been ruled out for Sunday's game and he currently doesn't have a timetable to return. With Anderson out, the Rockets will likely have to play more small ball with Trevor Ariza at the four, and D'Antoni mentioned that Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker will likely see a bump in minutes.

Lakers Trade News: James Harden told Lou Williams the Rockets were going to trade for him two weeks before it happened

Lakers Trade News: James Harden told Lou Williams the Rockets were going to trade for him two weeks before it happened

The Houston star is aiming for MVP and Executive of the Year. It was an open secret all season that the Los Angeles Lakers were pretty likely to trade Lou Williams by the trade deadline so long as he played well. The second part ended up happening, with Williams leading the Lakers’ bench for the first half of the year and functioning as a scoring God in fourth quarters, with the Lakers scoring 112.9 point per 100 possession when Williams was on the floor in final periods. Multiple opposing general managers were reportedly interested in acquiring Williams as the trade deadline approached,...

Rockets start Eric Gordon on Sunday

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon will start against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. What It Means: Forward/center Ryan Anderson (ankle) is likely going to miss around two weeks according to head coach Mike D'Antoni, so Gordon, Lou Williams and Sam Dekker are all looking at a bump in minutes. Gordon is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent shooting over his last five games, and with four games on the schedule next week, his owners should be in great shape in terms of 3-pointers. Our algorithms project Gordon for 16.8 points,...

Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Pelicans game preview

Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Pelicans game preview

The Rockets finish their Southwest Division slate tonight. So far, they are 9-6 against the toughest division in sports. The Pelicans did open a can on the Rockets just a few days ago. It was a familiar story for the Rockets: James Harden was his incredible self, a couple of other Rockets were productive, but the majority of the Rockets left their games in the locker room. That trend has popped up throughout the season, but it has recently returned. Part of the beauty of having so many shooters in the ability to play the players with the hot hand. Lou Williams having a bad night? Eric...

Lou Williams implies not all of the young Lakers ‘compete as hard as they can’

Well this is... something. Basically since the moment the Los Angeles Lakers were no longer a .500 team and started losing games at a rate that has left them almost at the bottom of the NBA standings, theories on the reason’s behind their drop-off have flown wildly across social media. For a certain subset of fans, the fall-off has been taken as certain evidence that the team’s young core is either a) full of busts b) doesn’t know what it means to be a Lakers or c) doesn’t work hard enough. Lou Williams appeared to lend some credence to the last theory when he spoke to the media...

Houston's Lou Williams has a big game against the Lakers, but he isn't gloating

Lou Williams had hit a bit of a slump. In the six games before Wednesday night, he made only seven of 30 shots. Then he faced the Lakers and broke it. He made seven shots in a row before he missed, and finished with 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting, making seven three-pointers. Rather than gloat,...

Houston even rested some starters in the fourth quarter of this blowout. The Rockets toyed with the Lakers for the vast majority of the night, holding a double digit lead for most of the game before stepping on the gas in the third quarter and blowing the Lakers off the floor 139-100.

The newcomer went off for 30 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals, and he shot 11-17 from the field,...

No worries about Lou Williams for Mike D’Antoni

The coach has full confidence in LouWill Lou Williams had quite the debut for the Houston Rockets but the high of that magical night has been short-lived. After the trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, in his first game in a Rockets uniform, he helped the team destroy the New Orleans Pelicans, scoring 27 points in 25 minutes. The new combo guard would go on to have success in his next two games. He'd finish the three games with an average of 24 points while shooting 50 percent from the floor and from deep. Since the honeymoon period, Williams has struggled to find his shot. In the past six...

Daryl Morey pulled off the Lou Williams-Corey Brewer trade exactly how you think he did

Daryl Morey pulled off the Lou Williams-Corey Brewer trade exactly how you think he did

The God struck again. The first move Magic Johnson made after he took the reins of the Lakers was trading Lou Williams to the Rockets for Corey Brewer and a first-round pick. It’s a long-standing truism that Daryl Morey lives to prey on new executives, feeling out any weaknesses. Which is why this story, embedded deep in Ramona Shelburne’s brilliant palace intrigue story about the Buss family, brought a huge smile to my face: His first day on the job was spent fielding trade calls. Utah's offer of a first-round pick for Williams was off the table by then, so Magic told teams he was...
