Game thread: Rockets vs. Thunder - Game 4

The Rockets look to take a commanding series lead today in OKC. The Rockets take on the Thunder today in OKC for Game 4 of the first-round of the playoffs. Houston is up 2-1, but have yet to really play a complete game. I’d like to see one from them today to take command of the series, because going back to H-town with a series tie would be a huge letdown after initially going up 2-0. The Rockets need some shooting from Trevor Ariza, Eric Gordon and Patrick Beverley to complement James Harden’s individual brilliance. The Beard currently leads the NBA in playoff scoring, but we’re...

Plaschke | Many questioned Metta World Peace’s arrival, but he’ll leave as an unquestioned champ

He joined the Lakers in the summer of 2009 as a troublemaker, a pariah, a plague. Ron Artest was signed, Trevor Ariza walked, and an NBA championship locker room was suddenly in peril. “What are they thinking? What are they doing?” I wrote in this newspaper. “They send the kid packing for an aging...

Game thread: Rockets vs. Kings

Beard and Co. head to California’s capital to take on the Kings Yes, the outcome of this game does not affect the Rockets’ placement in the standings or their playoff matchup against the Thunder. Yes, the Rockets won’t be at full strength with Sam Dekker still out with a broken hand, Nene with hand soreness, and Trevor Ariza and Eric Gordon resting tonight Yes, the Kings are tanking, hoping their draft pick won’t get sent over to the Philadelphia 76ers. But, have no fear. There is some exciting stuff attached to this game. Troy Williams is starting, and he has the ability to do this...

Resting Rockets: Gordon, Ariza, Nene out vs. Kings

The Rockets are turning a new leaf. The Rockets are resting three of their key rotation players for this afternoon’s game vs. the Sacramento Kings. Trevor Ariza, Eric Gordon, and Nene will sit today vs. the Kings, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. Rockets will hold out Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza, Nene today vs Kings. In addition to Gay, Richardson, Afflalo, Koufos, Tolliver out for Sac.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) April 9, 2017 It was already presumed that Nene would sit due to a not-so-serious finger injury sustained in Friday’s loss vs. the Pistons,...

Rockets clinch third seed with 110-104 win over Nuggets

Rockets clinch third seed with 110-104 win over Nuggets

Houston overcame a few bumpy spots to finalize their playoff seeding. James Harden finished with 31 points, 10 assists, 7 rebounds and 3 steals, and the Houston Rockets overcame some sloppy lulls to defeat the Denver Nuggets 110-104 and officially clinch the third seed in the Western Conference. Harden’s shot was still a little wonky, as he went just 8-19 from the field, but the Rockets featured a balanced attack that saw five of the eight rotation players finish in double figures. Nene had 16 points, Trevor Ariza finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds, Clint Capela also double-doubled...

Rockets beat Suns but lose Sam Dekker as Harden, Ariza sit

Rockets beat Suns but lose Sam Dekker as Harden, Ariza sit

It was a bittersweet win in the desert. Last night, the Rockets snapped a three-game losing streak as they beat the Suns in Phoenix 123-116. This loss marked the 12th straight for Phoenix and the first time in franchise history that the Rockets swept them in a season series. The Rockets also lowered their magic number to clinch the 3-seed to one. This was a very different looking Rockets team that beat the Suns. Ryan Anderson sat his fifth straight game due to a bum ankle. Trevor Ariza did not play due to a death in the family. But most importantly, James Harden did not play in this game...

Game thread: Rockets vs. Suns

The Rockets are shorthanded in trying to avoid their fourth loss in a row. The Houston Rockets look to get back on track tonight and break a three-game losing streak against the worst team in the Western Conference, the Phoenix Suns. With the Utah Jazz on their heels for the third seed in the postseason, the Rockets will be forced to get it done minus three regular starters. Ryan Anderson remains out with a sprained ankle, Trevor Ariza will miss tonight due to a death in the family, and James Harden will also finally sit with what’s being called “acute viral syndrome”. The Rockets...

Trevor Ariza won’t play against Suns, James Harden is “doubtful”

Trevor Ariza won’t play against Suns, James Harden is “doubtful”

They’re not resting, the Rockets say. Who cares? James Harden is sick, the Rockets say. Trevor Ariza has a death in the family. There’s a good chance neither will play against the Phoenix Suns Sunday night, the first game either of them will have missed this season. Maybe Harden is as sick as the Rockets say he is. After playing his worst ball of the season ever since re-injuring his wrist — and after Draymond Green punched that wrist Friday night — the timing and vagueness of the MVP candidate’s illness is curious. Officially James Harden has an 'acute viral syndrome."—...
