Rockets look absolutely lost with a lineup they had not used in preseason. Canaan, Terry in backcourt with Black at center, Pap at 4.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan getting first half minutes for the Rockets. Played only in fourth last night. In a backcourt with Terry.

Jonathan Feigen

OK, let's get this out of the way. Dorsey, Garcia, Daniels and Canaan are here, but not currently in the Rockets rotation, unlikely to play.

Jonathan Feigen

Smith had been ahead of Isaiah Canaan, but Canaan came on well in past 2 weeks and was always thought to have greater long-term potential.

Canaan puts in work, reaps playing time with Rockets houstonchronicle.com/sports/rockets…

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan on his big 4th quarter: “We just wanted to seal the deal. I made a couple shots and kind of put the icing on the cake."

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan seals this one with a huge three. Big shot for a guy who needed it. Rockets take it 96-87 over Spurs.

Jenny Dial Creech

It’s the Isaiah Canaan show in the 4th quarter- back to back long 3s from the guard. He has 18 points tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Isaiah Canaan is my new favorite player. There will be no OT. Let's move on to the games that count.

Jonathan Feigen

No need to check the scoreboard. Daniels and Canaan in so this must be the start of the fourth quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Happy for Isaiah Canaan. Had to be a tough preseason, but he's showed something these past few games.

Jenny Dial Creech

This is the first time in the preseason that we have seen Isaiah Canaan before Ish Smith.

Jonathan Feigen

Now this is different. Isaiah Canaan starts the second quarter at the point.

Jonathan Feigen

Tarik Black starting again at center. Canaan to split bench time with Smith. Make of that what you will.

David Hardisty

Rockets win 90-89 as Orlando misses at the buzzer. Isaiah Canaan scored all 14 of his points in the fourth.

Jonathan Feigen

Green misses at the buzzer. Rockets starters celebrate 90-89 win led by Canaan, Daniels and Johnson. Commemorative video available in lobby.

Jonathan Feigen

BTW, for those into this sort of thing, Canaan, Daniels and Johnson have led a thrilling comeback from down 12 to 1-pt lead. Canaan with 12.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale apparently reading tweets. Isaiah Canaan checks in.

Jonathan Feigen

Would seem Smith played better in practice or tm has w/ him at pt. RT @hunterl0225: @Jonathan Feigen why are we seeing so little of canaan?

Jonathan Feigen

Just to get this out of the way, Dorsey, Powell, Garcia, Johnson and Canaan are here in Miami but have not played.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan checks in with six minutes left. Would be interesting to see if Canaan gets more time in Miami or if Ish is backup pt for now.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan made a late move, but checking with judges (me), Nick Johnson is tonight's winner.

David Hardisty

Rockets lose for 1st time this preseason, fall 117-98 to ADavis, Pelicans. Papanikolaou led HOU w/ 13p, Canaan 12p, Daniels/Ariza/DMo 9p.

Jonathan Feigen

Jimmer going at Canaan as if he were Jimmer.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets going with the summer league team, with Daniels, Canaan, Black and Johnson playing with Jeff Adrien. It worked better in Vegas.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan checking in. Important minutes for him after strong showing last night. Should do some work on the Jimmer.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan (@Isaiah Canaan) said he doesn’t worry about how many minutes he will get - just what he does with them. Tonight, he scored 16.

Jonathan Feigen

Strong showing from what has been Rockets 3rd-team backcourt, Canaan and Daniels. Will be interesting to see rotation tmrw with Terry back.

David Hardisty

Rockets beat Suns 95-92, go to 3-0 on the preseason. TJones 18p-7r while Canaan (16p), Daniels (12p), Black (8p-7r) stepped up off bench.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan needed this game. He gets the bucket and foul, hitting the FT and giving the Rockets a 93-90 lead with 29.7 sec left.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan is trying to make a point tonight, y’all...

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets up 60-59 on Phoenix now after Troy Daniels and Isaiah Canaan give Houston big offensive boost

Jenny Dial Creech

Troy Daniels and Isaiah Canaan bring the Rockets back within two.

Jenny Dial Creech

I thought we would see Troy Daniels and Isaiah Canaan much earlier.

Jonathan Feigen

With 8 1/2 minutes left, Troy Daniels and Isaiah Canaan check in. Over/under on Daniels 3s: four.

Jonathan Feigen

Not surprised Ish getting backup point time. Told he's had a strong camp. RT @bigbrad83: @Jonathan Feigen Where is Canaan too?
