After driving Dwight Howard’s white Ferrari to Saturday’s practice, and having thoroughly enjoyed the ride, Chandler Parsons was willing to go along with the deal to stay behind the wheel. Parsons joined several Rockets teammates Omri Casspi, Troy Daniels and Howard in getting what Jeremy Lin called “half Mohawks.” Howard, however, noticed — and Parsons agreed — that Parsons’ cut really was not very different from what he has worn before. “Dwight wanted everybody to get Mohawks. Somehow I snuck away and got the same exact haircut I’ve had all year. He’s going to make me do it shorter.” Houston Chronicle

Howard quickly corrected the assumption that he was giving away cars and did not say if other teammates would be driving Dwightmobiles. Parsons’ SUV was in need of repairs after a driver ran a red light and hit his car outside Toyota Center last week. (The driver also asked for his autograph). “I didn’t give away a car,” Howard said. “I just let him borrow my car for the playoffs. I didn’t actually buy Chandler a Ferrari for a Mohawk. That would be crazy. Not that nice. I love Chandler to death, but I worked hard for that car. “They got to get (the haircut) like James’ to be considered a Mohawk. Chandler has to get his closer to Birdman.” Houston Chronicle

Still recovering from a fall in Minneapolis, when he crashed to the court on a dunk attempt, Chandler Parsons was involved in another crash before Monday’s game. He came away from this one far better than the first. A driver outside Toyota Center ran a red light and hit Parsons’ SUV near the entrance to the loading dock. Parsons said he and driver were not hurt, though it made him a few minutes late for treatment before shooting to see if he would be cleared to play. “She said she ran a red light and it was her fault,” Parsons said. “She had a little car so it kind of messed up the front bumper of my car. She was OK. Asked me to sign her insurance card.” Houston Chronicle

"We think we're the best team in the league," Chandler Parsons said. "We're going to go and prove it every single night. It's a big win for us, but at the end of the day, it's just one win against a good team. On to the next one. We don't think we're done. We're not getting arrogant or conceited or anything. But we think we can play with anybody and we've proved that this week. It's fun because we know we can even get better." CSN Houston

Morey believes Chandler Parsons, who will become a free agent in either July 2014 or July 2015, “is going to make a lot of money”. “With Chandler, we have an interesting decision. At the end of this year, we can turn down his option. People wonder why, because it’s so cheap, but then he’d be a restricted free agent. Or he can go through his fourth year and be an unrestricted free agent. There are advantages to each, so it’s something we’ll continue to talk about. “He’s going to make a lot of money on his next contract. We don’t know how much. But we’re committed to keeping him.” Clutchfans

Chandler Parsons fired away again and again. He shot 3-pointers on the break, from the corner and from the top of the circle as much as 28 feet away. He nailed 3s off the catch and off the dribble, stepping back and moving forward. With 10, Parsons made more than any Rocket has in a game, more than any NBA player has in a half. He made more consecutively without a miss than any Rocket has in one game, more than the rest of the Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies had combined Friday night. Houston Chronicle

But the forward could not make enough, or in the end, even take enough. With the Rockets down to their last possession, the Grizzlies finally didn’t let him launch again, swarming him in the final seconds until he had nowhere to turn. When he gave up the ball in the final seconds, the Rockets’ last chance went with it as Pat Beverley didn’t get his shot near the rim and the Grizzlies held on 88-87 at Toyota Center. “It’s frustrating,” said Parsons, who scored 30 of his career-high 34 points in the second half. “At the end of the day, you want to win the game. No matter how good or bad you play is really irrelevant if you lose a game.” Houston Chronicle

Chandler Parsons couldn't feel his face Friday night.

My body went numb," Parsons said when asked about his second-half shooting. "I've never felt that feeling on a basketball court before." Birmingham News
