Jonathan Feigen

Hard to believe not dominating w Dorsey, D-Mo, Canaan, K-Pap and Ariza or Garcia. RT @randyb7914: @Jonathan Feigen absolutely awful coaching

Jonathan Feigen

Shane Larkin starts the second half in a backcourt with Calderon. Shumpert moves to the 3. Canaan is back for the Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Anthony, Harden both with 14. Next highest scorers: Canaan and Black with 7 each. Hmmm. Those guys could've been on same team, right?

Jonathan Feigen

Terry checks in for Canaan. Canaan seems OK. Wasn't get much attention during the time out, but obviously w Beverley out would be huge loss.

Jenny Dial Creech

Terry in for Canaan, who has been clutching his back since the collision with Acy.

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan still clearly hurting. He reaches to his back as soon as McHale calls time out, struggles to the bench.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan is slow to get up after a collision with Acy. He seems ok.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan down after a collision with Acy as they chased a loose ball.

David Hardisty

Rockets lead 27-26 after one. Harden has 11 points & 3 assists, Canaan added 7.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan looks good early. Just hit an 18-footer on an isolation play with a defender in his face. 20-14 Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Beverley has missed 6 of 13 games so far. A lot falls to Canaan, Terry now.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan is starting in place of Pat Beverley tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

As expected Isaiah Canaan starts at the point for Rockets with Beverley out.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan officially starting tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Not announced, but I would think. RT @jmandel9: @Jonathan Feigen so canaan, harden, ariza, d-mo, black?

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan likely to start again with Beverley out.

Jonathan Feigen

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

Jenny Dial Creech

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

David Hardisty

Post-game interviews with James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Isaiah Canaan. bit.ly/1xw4uNW

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?
