Rockets beat Warriors as James Harden, bench lead wild comeback on opening night

The Rockets’ new names all contributed to upset Golden State at the Oracle on opening night. The Houston Rockets showed some true grit, battling back from a 17-point deficit, to defeat the Golden State Warriors 122-121 in stunning fashion to cap off the first night of NBA action. The Rockets took the lead late on some timely defense by P.J. Tucker, Trevor Ariza, and Luc Mbah a Moute, and a last-second swish by Kevin Durant that would have won the game for the Warriors was waved off after replay showed the ball was clearly still in his hand when the game’s final red light appeared over...

Rockets 2017-2018 player previews: Trevor Ariza

I can vividly remember the former PA voice of the Rockets, John Paul Stevenson, introduce him into games during the 2014-15 campaign. “At center, 6-9, from Kansas, #10… TAAAAAAARRRRIIIIIKKKKKKKKKKKK BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!” Black had a solid career here in Houston in just 25 games. As a guy who wasn’t expected to make the roster out of camp, Black surprised many and made the team getting minutes right away as Dwight Howard’s...
