Jenny Dial Creech: Pat Beverley is listed as out with a left wrist sprain. Coach McHale was hoping he would get some news soon on Beverley’s status. Twitter @jennydialcreech

Dwight Howard will play on Wednesday against New Orleans if “he’s feeling good,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. Howard said he was feeling good after a practice session in Indiana. So expect to see him in New Orleans after being out since Jan. 25 (26 games) with a knee problem. He missed another 12 games earlier in the season with other maladies (flu, ankle, knee). Houston is 25-13 with Howard on the bench. Houston Chronicle

Rockets guard Jason Terry said Nash was one of the best to ever play at his position. “He brought back the point in point guard position in our era,” Terry, who has played 16 seasons, said. “It was a time where guards were starting to become scoring guards. He was a true general on the floor. He was never selfish. He always looked to make his teammates better and he will be missed, but his mark on history will be left.” Houston Chronicle

Ask him where his MVP trophies are, and Steve Nash isn't so sure. Invite him to go back and figuratively rewrite the ending to the playoff heartbreak of his choice, just for the sport of it, and Nash says there's no need. Remind him of that Sports Illustrated cover, on which he's bouncing giddily alongside Dwight Howard and a headline proclaiming how much fun was in store, and Nash can only acknowledge that "nothing worked out the way we intended it to work out." "It wasn't as much fun as we thought," Nash said with a chuckle meant as much as anything to convey chagrin. ESPN.com

Mark Berman: Kevin McHale said Terrence Jones still in hospital, had trouble breathing. McHale referred to issue w/ a lung. Doesn't think rib is broken Twitter @MarkBermanFox26

Fittingly, the 50-point performance – the ninth in Rockets history – was the first since Olajuwon’s 51 against the Celtics in 1996, when the Rockets that lined the court on Thursday reigned as NBA’s champions as they reigned at Toyota Center on Thursday. “You know what, that’s a special group right there,” Harden said. “We’re trying to build something special like they did. To play a game in front of them was definitely an honor. Having those guys here made it a special night. It made it that much more special.” Houston Chronicle



Average height of the main three players is 6-foot-10. It's truly a big man franchise.
