Surfing the blogosphere: Rockets talk with Ben DuBose

Surfing the blogosphere: Rockets talk with Ben DuBose

The Houston Rockets entered last summer with one goal: find a way to take down the Golden State Warriors. They kicked things off with pure wizardry to trade for Chris Paul. During free agency, they went rangy wing hunting, snagging P.J Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute to go along with Trevor Ariza. Houston slowed things down […] The post Surfing the blogosphere: Rockets talk with Ben DuBose appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Trevor Ariza seeks $50-60 million contract in free agency

Trevor Ariza seeks $50-60 million contract in free agency

Will the asking price be too much for the Rockets? Former TDS Contributor and current Rockets Wire journalist Kelly Iko has reported that Trevor Ariza will be seeking a 4-5 year contract worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $50-60 million. It is safe to say that Ariza, the longest-tenured Rocket except for James Harden, is third on the Rockets’ priority list in their free agency agenda. Chris Paul is an unrestricted free agent seeking a max contract and Clint Capela is a restricted free agent who will likely receive a maximum deal as well. With CP3 and Capela needing to be taken care...

NBA Draft 2018: Who could the Rockets take at 46?

NBA Draft 2018: Who could the Rockets take at 46?

The Draft is a little more than a week away and the Rockets have a decision to make in the second round. Over the past several weeks, mock drafts have flooded the internet, but you will usually see chatter about the top picks, or the lottery, or the first round. However, few actually go into the deep end and conquer the second round, simply because it’s so unpredictable. Recent history has shown that the second round picks might be just as important as the first round picks. Both Trevor Ariza and P.J. Tucker were prominent pieces of a Rockets team that went deep in the postseason despite...

Rockets 2018 season recap: Trevor Ariza

Rockets 2018 season recap: Trevor Ariza

Trevor Ariza might not be back next season, but if he is, I’m begging one final time for a drop in minutes. For three straight seasons now, I’ve been clamoring for a reduction in Trevor Ariza’s minutes. Ariza was over or near 35 minutes per game in each of his three years since rejoining the Houston Rockets, and though he seemed to handle it fine during the regular season, it resulted in some dead legs that caused Ariza to under-perform in the postseason in two of those three seasons. And though his minutes were cut a little this season with the arrival of forwards P.J. Tucker and Luc...

Who Spurs fans should cheer for in The Finals, 2.0

Who Spurs fans should cheer for in The Finals, 2.0

Yes, we’re doing this again. Last year at this time, I wrote a piece entitled “Who Spurs fans should cheer for in The Finals”. At halftime of Game 7 of the Rockets – Warriors series, my personal answer was close to being “neither”. Other than Trevor Ariza, I really don’t like any of the Rockets, and ever since his rookie year in the Finals against my Spurs, I have traditionally rooted against Lebron’s team. However, what he has accomplished this year probably would have led me to root for him against the Rockets. Thankfully, the Rockets decided to miss a gazillion...

Warriors offensive explosion forces Game 7

Warriors offensive explosion forces Game 7

It all comes down to Monday night. On the brink of elimination, the Golden State Warriors answered the call and forced a Game 7, blowing out the Houston Rockets by a score of 115-86. The game was closer than the final score suggested, especially when you take into account that the Rockets were up 17 points after the first quarter and up 10 at halftime. James Harden, Trevor Ariza, and Eric Gordon had 53 points combined in the first half to the Warriors’ 51. The shooting was as good as the team has seen since Game 2. However, the Rockets went ice cold and scored just 25 points in the second...

Steve Kerr doesn’t regret playing Quinn Cook in crunch time of Game 5

HOUSTON — After the Warriors’ Game 5 loss Thursday night to the Rockets, Quinn Cook — a reserve guard who spent much of the season in the G League — was trending on Twitter. Minutes earlier, with Golden State trailing by one and 42.7 seconds left, Cook — wide open beyond the arc — caught a pass from Draymond Green, took one dribble, set his feet and hoisted a three-point attempt. The shot clanged hard off the rim and landed in the hands of Houston forward Trevor Ariza. The Warriors didn’t score the rest of the way, falling to the Rockets,...
