Steve Kerr says Golden State looked ‘young, undisciplined’ in blowout loss to Rockets

The Golden State Warriors woke up from a dream win against the Houston Rockets on Christmas night and rose to a 30-point defeat against a James Harden-led team. Head coach Steve Kerr had an edict in mind for his team for the remaining 27 games of the season: limit the turnovers and stop fouling. “I […] The post Steve Kerr says Golden State looked ‘young, undisciplined’ in blowout loss to Rockets appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Rockets news: Russell Westbrook doesn’t want to be known as ‘the bad guy’ after ejection vs. Warriors

Houston Rockets star Russell Westbrook doesn’t want to be known as the “bad guy.” But during Thursday’s 135-105 pummeling of the Golden State Warriors, he looked to be every bit of that, still hellbent in proving he’s the man in a game that was already out of hand. Technical No. 13 on the season for […] The post Rockets news: Russell Westbrook doesn’t want to be known as ‘the bad guy’ after ejection vs. Warriors appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Could be an ok player. | Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via Ho, ho, hold them down and kick them. The Rockets avenged an embarrassing Christmas Day NBA feature game loss to the Golden State Warriors 135-105 tonight. True, it wasn’t a marquee Christmas matchup, but it was on the TNT calendar. Tonight was also the first night of action back from the NBA All Star break, so it wasn’t nothing from an national TV standpoint. Were the Rockets aware of that Christmas Day loss going into this game? In a word, yes. James Harden called it out as “embarrassing” in his post-game...

James Harden, Rockets roll to 135-105 rout of young Warriors

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — James Harden had 29 points and 10 assists, leading the Houston Rockets past the cold-shooting Golden State Warriors 135-105 on Thursday night in the teams' first game back from the All-Star break. Russell Westbrook had 21 points and 10 assists before being ejected, while P.J. Tucker scored 15 points. He made all five of his 3-pointers as the Rockets knocked down 25 total — a franchise record allowed by the Warriors against any opponent. Houston set an NBA record with 27 3s in a win against the Suns last April. Robert Covington added 20 points and all five Houston...

It’s no secret that Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook has hops for days.

New Rocket Carroll | Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Basketball is finally back + thoughts on All Star Weekend. I like All Star Weekend, don’t get me wrong. I think it’s a fun event, and try to remind myself that dunk contests and whatnot aren’t really FOR me at my age. They’re for kids. Because dunks are cool, especially if you’re 13. Nothing is wrong with having events for all sorts of different fans. In fact, it’s good. I’ll maintain I’ve already SEEN the best dunk contests that will happen, irrespective of any possible truth of that claim. Some young person...

Paul, Thunder surprising league heading into stretch run

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Chris Paul gets annoyed when the topic of the Thunder’s “surprising” success comes up. Expectations for Oklahoma City were low for many after an offseason during which the Thunder collected draft picks, traded Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets for Paul and sent Paul George to the Los Angeles Clippers for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Danilo Gallinari. Many weren’t sure if Oklahoma City’s new players would function well together — or if the group would stay together. It also wasn't clear if Paul could perform at an elite level at age 34, or if he could...

Breaking down the Houston Rockets’ remaining schedule

Photo by Bob Levey/ What’s the rest of Houston’s schedule look like? Despite what has felt like an up-and-down season for the Houston Rockets, they’ve set themselves up for a nice second half to the season. At 34-20, the Rockets haven’t been nearly as bad or inconsistent as the panicky fan base has made them seem. In fact, they’ve done a lot more consistent winning then losing. Remove a four-game and a three-game losing streak, and Houston goes plenty of good stretches without a loss. They’ve also done this while struggling to find their identity, as they incorporate a new,...

Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors game preview

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ It’s a real shame that Steph Curry is injured and can’t play this year. For one thing, Curry is an incredible player that changed the NBA forever with his ability to shoot incredible three pointers from all parts of the floor. He also has a remarkable ability to finish at the rim, in addition to his array of floaters that he can hit from the free throw line at ease. I’m disappointed that we barely got to see Curry this season, and I’m pretty sure he won’t return at all if the Warriors have their way. For most of Curry’s career, he’s been compared to...
