The Pelicans beat the Rockets in Houston last night, 99-90, pushing New Orleans over .500 to 13-12 and the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. Anthony Davis was back in full form after a chest contusion kept him out of the last three quarters in the Cleveland win and the Warriors loss. The Brow put up 30 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks against Dwight Howard and the Rockets, too. Find out why his stat line is another indication he’s perhaps one of the NBA’s best five players right now. Read More »

Video: Arron Afflalo’s Game-Tying 3-Pointer At The Buzzer Wasted In OT Loss

James Harden, Arron Afflalo, Dwight Howard

It’s not often a team is tasked with taking the ball out from under their own basket with only 3.7 seconds in regulation, down by three. Usually they’d advance the ball. Also, this gives the winning team time to foul and avoid a game-tying 3-pointer. Except, Patrick Beverley failed to foul Ty Lawson in time as he sprinted across half-court and found Arron Afflalo for the game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer last night in Denver. Read More »

Kevin McHale Says Injured Dwight Howard “Won’t Be Back Anytime Soon”

Dwight Howard

The Houston Rockets are 16-4, but even that sterling record belies just how impressive they’ve been in the early going of 2014-2015. Kevin McHale’s team has performed at an elite level despite three starters missing more than half of the schedule thus far. The Rockets will need to continue leaning on confidence gleaned from that success despite a depleted roster going forward, too. According to McHale, All-Star center Dwight Howard “won’t be back anytime soon.” Read More »

5 Reasons The Rockets Are Championship Contenders

James Harden

The NBA season is still young and teams have yet to reach their full potential, but there are already squads who are showing signs of brilliance. The Raptors in the East, and the Grizzlies in the West, have been scorching hot out of the gate, while we know others — such as the Cavaliers, Bulls, Spurs and Warriors — will be making noise come playoff time. But it is the Rockets who are finally becoming the team many predicted after signing Dwight Howard to play alongside James Harden two summers ago. Read More »

Kevin Durant Repeatedly Tells Dwight Howard, “You’re A Pu**y”

Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant

Last night’s Thunder-Rockets game was ugly. Houston scored 24 points in the first quarter, and it was the only time either time exceeded 20 points in a quarter; Houston then scored only nine in the third session. The Rockets did, however, get the win when James Harden hit a huge step-back three-pointer with 1:19 remaining to give them a 68-65 advantage they never relinquished. The ugliness of the game mirrored the junk Kevin Durant was slinging towards Dwight Howard from the sidelines. Read More »
