One trade the Rockets can make with each Western Conference contender

One trade the Rockets can make with each Western Conference contender

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports Let’s make a deal! It’s no secret that the Rockets are listed as one of the biggest sellers for the NBA Trade Deadline season, and they hold several trade chips that make them one of the most important dominoes in the entire league. GM Rafael Stone will likely hear from a decent amount of his NBA colleagues this week as he looks to push the Rockets forward in their rebuild. I’m taking a seat in Stone’s chair and playing GM. Let’s look into one trade each Western Conference contender could make with the Rockets: Utah Jazz (27-9) Jazz...

Failure to Launch: Inside the Rockets’ 13-game losing streak

Photo by Troy Fields/NBAE via How the Houston Rockets went from a Cinderella story to basketball purgatory in a span of 29 days. John Wall wasn’t even scheduled to play. All season long, the Houston Rockets have been cautious with Wall while he worked his way back from a two-year hiatus. The plan was simple: No back-to-back games. And he only exceeded beyond 35 minutes in seven out of his 25 games played thus far. But preparations for Monday’s contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers were anything but simple. Twenty-four hours earlier, Houston sustained their...

Kevin Porter Jr. and KJ Martin expected to play with Rockets post-break

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports Two youngsters with potential look to get some playing time with the Rockets next week. With the Houston Rockets in the midst of a 13-game losing streak, I think it’s safe to say that the team is likely turning an eye towards the future. In that spirit, it’s being reported that the Rockets expect second-year swingman Kevin Porter Jr. and rookie forward KJ Martin to join the team after the All-Star break after spending time in the G-League with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Stephen Silas tells @SportsMT that he expects Kevin Porter...

Rockets drop another, fall to James Harden and Nets 132-114

POOL PHOTOS-USA TODAY Sports Another game, another loss. It wasn’t as bad of a night as some of us feared, as the Houston Rockets hung tough for certain stretches with the Brooklyn Nets, but James Harden and company were simply just too much offensively in The Bearded One’s return to H-town, and the Nets sent Houston to their 13th loss in a row with a 132-114 final. Harden went off to the tune of 29 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists, and 3 steals on an uber-efficient 10-15 from the field and 4-8 from three, and he scored or assisted on 59 total Brooklyn points, and...

James Harden gets mixed reaction from fans in return to Houston

James Harden said he hoped for a positive reaction when he played in Toyota Center for the first time as a member of the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. He partly got his wish. When Harden was introduced during pregame - Rockets' public address announcer Matt Thomas even gave him his standard Rockets introduction, instead of usually reserved announcement given for visitors - the mix of cheers and boos from the approximately 3,000 fans in attendance seemed about 50-50. TOUGH TALK: Kyrie Irving has warning for Rockets fans before James Harden's return Once the game got started, Harden received...

SB Nation Reacts: Should the Rockets tank?

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Which way should we go? Our weekly SB Nation Reacts poll is ready, and we again have another Houston Rockets question to find out the results for, along with a series of national questions about the new NBA Top Shot phenomenon. First things are first, so we’ll kick off our results with our question of the week, in which we asked our Houston voters if the Rockets should immediately start the rebuild, including a full tank, or if they should try to add to the current group of guys.

Rockets vs. Nets game preview: return of an old friend

Photo by Cato Cataldo/NBAE via I don’t need to tell you that tonight is James Harden’s first return to Houston. The Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets are heading in different directions, and Harden is responsible for both. The Rockets went on a nice run in the immediate aftermath of the trade, but have since crashed back to Earth with a 12 game losing streak. The Nets got off to a shaky start with the Beard, but have since turned into the juggernaut that many of us expected. The sudden realization by the East coast media that Harden is actually great at...
