That also brings in Isaiah Canaan to play the point. He's matched up on Jameer Nelson so that works with Harden on Parsons, Ariza on Ellis.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan in the game for the Rockets.

Jenny Dial Creech

I watched Papanikolaou, Harden and Canaan have a 3-point shooting contest at practice the other day. Papanikolaou won. He is 4/5 tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

With Z-Bo on Canaan, Calvin Murphy keeps screaming "Take him to the basket." Canaan finally did. Three-point play. Good job, Murph.

Mike Prada

This is hilarious. James Harden is guarding Zach Randolph. Meanwhile, Randolph is guarding Isaiah Canaan.

Mike Prada

Rockets going super small to start the second half. Ariza at the 4, Canaan and Beverley in together. That’ll be interesting.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan starts the second half. Trevor Ariza moves to the four on Z-Bo. Memphis immediately posts him up.

Jonathan Feigen

Again, Beverley came back. Does not want Canaan matched on twos. RT @NSRHarkore: @Jonathan Feigen What did Canaan do to Mchale? Where is he?

Jonathan Feigen

No matchup for Canaan if Terry at pt. RT @cdhthegreat: @Jonathan Feigen @Lee__Escobar so garcia is preferred by mchale over canaan?

Jonathan Feigen

Pat Beverley is back from his hamstring injury. RT @Lee__Escobar: @Jonathan Feigen any idea why Canaan isn't playing?

Jenny Dial Creech

I bet a lot of basketball players wish they had Dwight Howard around the basket to tidy up after misses. He just did that for Canaan.

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan hits his 3rd trey of quarter. He's 3 of 4. Rest of Rockets 2 of 13. Sixers packing lane, as did in Philly when Rockets made 16 3s.

Keith Pompey

Canaan makes his third 3 to pull the Rockets within two points (36-34) with 5:42 left in half.

Keith Pompey

#HoustonRockets starters: Trevor Ariza, Donatas Motiejunas, Dwight Howard, James Harden, Isaiah Canaan

Sean Highkin

Isaiah Canaan's looked good tonight.

Amin Elhassan

He's playing in Mexico, so that was a true #ChurroStep RT @netw3rk: Canaan's eurostep passport has just been revoked. Don't do that again.

Jerry Zgoda

Same starters as Miami game for Wolves: Zach, KMartin, Thad, Pek, Wiggins. Rockets are starting Ariza, Motiejunas, Howard, Harden, Canaan

Jonathan Feigen

Not official. Appears to be Howard, D-Mo, Ariza, Canaan, Harden. MT @Kcann0n: @Jonathan Feigen Is there a starting lineup for Rockets yet?

Tommy Beer

My favorite Daily Fantasy values tonight: Isiah Canaan, Wes Johnson, Reggie Jackson, Solomon Hill, and play Anthony Davis (Pels at home).

Marcus Thompson

Guards that went after Nedovic: Isaiah Canaan, Ray McCallum. It's not like Warriors missed out on much

Rockets guard Canaan turns detractors' negativism into positives - houstonchronicle.com/sports/rockets…

Diamond Leung

Stephen Curry knows all about Isaian Canaan bec he specifically follows players from mid-majors. Called him "fearless." Real recognize real.

David Hardisty

FINAL: GSW 98, HOU 87. Strong effort w/ 3 starters out, but shots misfired all night. 1st loss for Rox (6-1) this yr. Canaan career-high 21.

Howard Chen

Rockets needed guys to step up tonight above and beyond. Canaan and D-Mo have done that. And this is only a 2-pt game. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan stayed down on floor, holding back of his head. Walking off very slowly.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan taking his time getting up - seems ok though.

Jenny Dial Creech

HUGE 3-pointer for Isaiah Canaan. He has a career-high 21 points tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan Currys Curry to tie the game. He has 21. Career high was 15.

David Hardisty

D-Mo for three at the buzzer! HALF: Rockets 56, Warriors 48. Harden has 16, Canaan 12, D-Mo 12 off the bench. Rockets have shot 21 threes.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 28, Warriors 25 after 1. Canaan w/ 10 in 1st quarter. Career high is 15. Ariza, K-Pap, Bogut, Thompson scoreless. Weird game so far.

Jenny Dial Creech

At the end of the first, the #Rockets lead #Warriors 29-25/ Isaiah Canaan leading the way with 10 points for Rox.

David Hardisty

Give it up for Isaiah Canaan -- 10 points in the first quarter. Rockets with a surprising 29-25 lead after one.

Jonathan Feigen

And now the Rockets go even smaller. Canaan in for Harden. Makes Daniels the small forward? Terry?

Howard Chen

Isaiah Canaan right now>>>> #RedNation

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan just Curry'd Steph Curry, pulling up from about 28 feet and draining it. Canaan has 8 points already. 15-15, 5:03 1Q.

Diamond Leung

My features on Rockets starters Trevor Ariza and Isaiah Canaan while they were in college: sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story… dailybruin.com/2004/01/21/m-b…

Jonathan Feigen

With Howard out, Rockets have 3 starters out -- Howard, Terrence Jones and Pat Beverley. Starting 2 rookies and second-yr g Isaiah Canaan.

Jenny Dial Creech

#Rockets starters: Canaan, Harden, Ariza, Papanikolaou, Black

Troy Daniels

Got my man right on the #Sonos system.. He heard mine.. Said he had to get one..

Jenny Dial Creech

Second-year Rockets guard Isaiah Canaan looks like he belongs blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

David Hardisty

Post-game interviews with #Rockets Dwight Howard, James Harden, Isaiah Canaan and Jason Terry. bit.ly/13PxRlx

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have not said how long Pat Beverley would be out, but made several references to Isaiah Canaan going against Steph Curry on Sat.

Jonathan Feigen

Bench-clearing time. Daniels in; Canaan, Garcia in with next dead ball. Will be Garcia's first minutes of season.

Jonathan Feigen

Teams are a combined 1 of 8 on 3s. Actually, Daniels in with Terry playing backup at the point with Canaan starting.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Bonner, Baynes. Rockets: Canaan, Harden, Ariza, Montiejunas, Howard.

Jonathan Feigen

Failed to mention earlier, but Motiejunas, Canaan starting w/ Jones, Beverley out; and for SA, Baynes, Bonner starting for Splitter, Duncan.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan starting tonight along with DMo.

David Hardisty

Likely safe to assume Canaan starts, though McHale will confirm in about 5 minutes. RT @drav87: @David Hardisty Who is starting at PG?
