Rockets look absolutely lost with a lineup they had not used in preseason. Canaan, Terry in backcourt with Black at center, Pap at 4.
Isaiah Canaan getting first half minutes for the Rockets. Played only in fourth last night. In a backcourt with Terry.
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.
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.
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."
Isaiah Canaan seals this one with a huge three. Big shot for a guy who needed it. Rockets take it 96-87 over Spurs.
It’s the Isaiah Canaan show in the 4th quarter- back to back long 3s from the guard. He has 18 points tonight.
Isaiah Canaan is my new favorite player. There will be no OT. Let's move on to the games that count.
No need to check the scoreboard. Daniels and Canaan in so this must be the start of the fourth quarter.
Happy for Isaiah Canaan. Had to be a tough preseason, but he's showed something these past few games.
This is the first time in the preseason that we have seen Isaiah Canaan before Ish Smith.
Now this is different. Isaiah Canaan starts the second quarter at the point.
Tarik Black starting again at center. Canaan to split bench time with Smith. Make of that what you will.
Rockets win 90-89 as Orlando misses at the buzzer. Isaiah Canaan scored all 14 of his points in the fourth.
Green misses at the buzzer. Rockets starters celebrate 90-89 win led by Canaan, Daniels and Johnson. Commemorative video available in lobby.
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.
McHale apparently reading tweets. Isaiah Canaan checks in.
Just to get this out of the way, Dorsey, Powell, Garcia, Johnson and Canaan are here in Miami but have not played.
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.
Isaiah Canaan made a late move, but checking with judges (me), Nick Johnson is tonight's winner.
Rockets lose for 1st time this preseason, fall 117-98 to ADavis, Pelicans. Papanikolaou led HOU w/ 13p, Canaan 12p, Daniels/Ariza/DMo 9p.
Jimmer going at Canaan as if he were Jimmer.
Rockets going with the summer league team, with Daniels, Canaan, Black and Johnson playing with Jeff Adrien. It worked better in Vegas.
Isaiah Canaan checking in. Important minutes for him after strong showing last night. Should do some work on the Jimmer.
Strong showing from what has been Rockets 3rd-team backcourt, Canaan and Daniels. Will be interesting to see rotation tmrw with Terry back.

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