Rockets beat Jazz behind double-doubles from Harden, Howard

The Rockets' two stars shone bright in leading the Rockets to an easy victory in Utah. The Houston Rockets are now 2-0 with double-digit victories in back-to-back road games to start the season after defeating the Utah Jazz, 104-93. James Harden finished with 18 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds, but shot just 6-18 and turned the ball over six times. His biggest contribution: finding Trevor Ariza on the three-point line. Ariza shot 4-7 from deep and finished with 20 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals. Holy cow does Ariza fit snugly into the Rockets lineup. I don't think he's taken a contested...

Rockets hold off Jazz 104-93 to move to 2-0 on young season

SALT LAKE CITY – When the Rockets starters were together, they generally rolled with relative ease. Dwight Howard was too much to handle in the low post, especially early. James Harden was happy to work as a playmaker. Trevor Ariza poured in 3s for the second-consecutive game. When the Rockets got their starters back on […]

Rookies look the part in Rockets’ season opener

SALT LAKE CITY – For all the Rockets’ efforts to add veteran influence with the additions of Trevor Ariza and Jason Terry, they begin the season with two rookies in their rotation. Kostas Papanikolaou has played as the backup small forward and very briefly as a stretch four and Tarik Black has been Dwight Howard’s […]

Otto Porter holds the key to the Wizards' season

Paul Pierce may be around, but the Wizards jump to another level if Otto Porter can become good enough to cut into his minutes and push him up to power forward. Washington's wing rotation has certainly changed. After watching Trevor Ariza leave town after a career season and Martell Webster succumb to yet another back injury, the Wizards are counting on the newly-acquired Paul Pierce and second year lottery pick Otto Porter replace or even improve upon Ariza's production. Going into the season, Pierce looks like a capable replacement for Ariza, Webster will fill in as the back up once he's...

Trevor Ariza ready for match with Kobe Bryant

With the Rockets season-opener against the Lakers, Trevor Ariza will play his first game since his return to the Rockets likely matched up with the opponent he knows best, Kobe Bryant. “He’s a competitor,” Ariza said. “He works hard on his game. If someone says he can’t do something, he always shows them that he […]

Rockets vs. Pelicans final score: Houston crumbles before Anthony Davis, New Orleans

With no Howard or Harden, Anthony Davis and the Pelicans were too much for the Rockets. The New Orleans Pelicans stomped the Houston Rockets Tuesday night, 117-98, giving the Rockets their first loss of the preseason after starting 3-0. Kostas Papanikolaou was the Rockets' best offensive player; Big Papa finished with 13 points on eight shots, 2 boards and 2 steals. Trevor Ariza had another solid, all-around game that will mean more when James Harden and Dwight Howard are in the lineup.

Bradley Beal's injury provides an opportunity for Otto Porter, Glen Rice Jr.

Bradley Beal's injury provides an opportunity for Otto Porter, Glen Rice Jr.

With Bradley Beal sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks after fracturing his wrist, Washington may need to rely on their two youngsters more than they think. Here's why this is the perfect opportunity for both of them. Here's a brief summary of what Washington's wing rotation has gone through over the past five months: Management held firm on a deal with Trevor Ariza that wouldn't exceed $9 million per season in free agency, leading to their best perimeter defender and best shooter bolting to Houston on a four-year/$32 million contract. Paul Pierce agreed to terms with Washington a day later...
