Rockets suffer ugly loss to Spurs, fall 118-109 in San Antonio

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports Houston got thrashed in San Antonio. The Houston Rockets are 7-18 on the season. There’s been no shortage of ugly losses so far. But in a season with plenty, this may be the ugliest. The Rockets couldn’t defend a lick and allowed the C team for the San Antonio Spurs to rack up 55 percent shooting from the field in a 118-109 defeat. Houston allowed Keldon Johnson to go off for 32 points and Tre Jones to go buckwild for 26, and while good for my fantasy team, it is hardly a recipe for success. Johnson finished 14-for-21 from the field...

Johnson's hot start helps Spurs beat Rockets, end skid at 11

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Keldon Johnson scored 32 points and the San Antonio Spurs snapped an 11-game losing streak by beating the Houston Rockets 118-109 on Thursday night. Johnson made his first nine shots and his first three 3-pointers in helping San Antonio win for the first time since Nov. 11. Tre Jones had a career-high 26 points and reserves Doug McDermott and Josh Richardson added 12 points apiece. Rookie Jabari Smith Jr. scored 23 points for Houston. Alperen Sengun added 16 points and 11 rebounds, with all five Rockets starters scoring in double figures. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich...

Five Out: Second Opinions

This Way To The Future | Photo by Logan Riely/NBAE via As Others See Us? Welcome back to Five Out. It’s Thursday! But the Rockets are playing! But it’s Thursday! Anyhow, as ever, run to the corner. The Evaluation of Others This week Zach Lowe’s podcast “The Lowe Post” featured coverage of the Rockets with Lowe and ESPN college draft expert, Johnathan Givony looking at the performance of NBA rookies. I came away from the podcast generally agreeing with Lowe, and less impressed with Givony. I thought he took a rather superficial look at the Rockets, at...

Would the Rockets ever welcome back James Harden?

Would the Rockets ever welcome back James Harden?

Could Harden and Alperen Sengun compliment each other? | Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports And how would it look if they did? It’s hard to write this piece without using the ex-partner trope. I’m just going to get it out of the way for everyone’s benefit without leaning on it. James Harden is my favorite player in the NBA. James Harden is my least favorite player in the NBA. Let me live. There is no truth without contradiction. Of course, this isn’t about how I feel — and it isn’t about how you feel either. It’s about basketball. If the opportunity ever...

Jalen Green's charity work shows he is a star on and off the court

Jalen Green already proving he is a star on and off the court When the Rockets drafted Jalen Green as the number two overall pick in the 2021 draft, the Rockets knew they were getting a potential superstar to take the place of James Harden on the court, and in his year-plus in a Rockets uniform, he has also shown he will be a superstar off the court. Green has improved his scoring (21 points per game) and assists (4 per game) in his second season with the Rockets. For all that has been said by fans of Harden and people who were soured by his exit, you can never say that Harden...

Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs game preview

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Tonight is a pretty big game in the grand scheme of the NBA. The Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs find themselves at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, and along with the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, and Charlotte Hornets (for now, at least) have formed a quintet of teams chasing those best NBA Lottery odds. As you know (because I’ve mentioned it a million times over the past few seasons), the three teams with the worst records in the NBA each get an equal 14% chance of landing the top overall pick in the draft....

Sengun, Fernando, Garuba: A tale of three centers

Sengun, Fernando, Garuba: A tale of three centers

Who should be the Houston Rockets’ center of attention? | David Richard-USA TODAY Sports The Rockets feature three bigs with wildly disparate skill sets. Which one is their best? Recently, I saw someone on Rockets Twitter suggest that the team’s center trio of Alperen Sengun, Usman Garuba and Bruno Fernando were like the three options at the beginning of Pokemon. I can’t remember who said it. If it was you, send me the Tweet, and I’ll come back here and embed it. Provided that Twitter still exists by the time this is published, of course. The analogy is apt....

Rockets bounce 76ers, James Harden 132-123 in double overtime

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports A big win for the Rockets. Your Houston Rockets are learning how to win. So much so that they now sit at the fifth-worst record in the league and for the Victor Wembanyama sweepstakes. Obviously taking the next step is important, but whether we want them to be good enough to miss out on generational talents Wemby and Scoot Henderson is another story. Regardless, the Rockets took home a 132-123 doube overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, and they did it during James Harden’s homecoming. Despite letting Joel Embiid...
