I have no idea what James Harden's dance move here is called, but it needs a name ASAP. youtube.com/watch?v=SbpLqS…

Jonathan Feigen

Looks like James Harden will call it a night. Troy Daniels starting the second half.

Julian Mozo

Con la #NBAenDeporTV largamos este martes, a las 23.30, con el duelo entre los Rockets de Harden y Howard ante los Lakers de Kobe y Nash.

Gary Lee

According to NBA.com's GM Survey: James Harden (63.0%) Klay Thompson (18.5%) Kobe Bryant (7.4%) Stephen Curry (7.4%)

Daryl Morey

I agree RT @Jenny Dial Creech: NBA GMs rank Howard, Harden at the top blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Rusty Simmons

Steph Curry got one vote as the NBA's best PG and 7.4% of the votes for best SG. Klay Thompson got 18.5% for best SG. James Harden was No. 1

Mark Medina

NBA GM's vote Kobe for third-place tie as best SG. Kobe behind James Harden & Klay Thompson. Tied w/ Stephen Curry on.nba.com/1tbRsXF

Chris Sheridan

In Year 2 of Howard & Harden, can the #Rockets truly contend without a third star? @BenDuBose has the answers sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/22/fiv…

Ethan J. Skolnick

Kevin McHale letting Howard & Harden sit this out, as 5 subs finish. Spoelstra still playing starters. Trying to get rhythm.

Ira Winderman

Game basically Wade (19) and Bosh (17) against Howard (19) and Harden (19), in a league when Big Twos not exactly in vogue.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard and Harden with 15 apiece. Wade with 17. Guessing TNT is happy, but not sure they can rip Dwight in the studio tonight.

Ira Winderman

Rockets 52, Heat 41 at half. Wade with 17 on 8-of-10, Bosh with nine, Harden with 15, Dwight with 15.

Jonathan Feigen

Then again, in a half he's defended pretty well, Harden let Wade walk in for a put-back. It's always when his guy doesn't have the ball.

Howard Chen

Dwyane Wade puttin on a show so far tonight, but then, so is Harden. 15 pts so far for the Beard. Rockets up double digits in the 1st H.

Ira Winderman

Yes, Wade has 12. But Harden buries 3-pointer over him and now has 15.

Jonathan Feigen

Wade is 5 of 5; 2 on Ariza; 3 on Harden; most examples of outstanding shot-making. Doesn't matter. Harden's D will be blamed in 3, 2, 1...

Ira Winderman

Good news is Wade 5 for 5. Other news is that mostly against Harden's defense . . . so does that count?

David Hardisty

Rockets looked terrific in first quarter in Miami, hitting 6-9 on threes. Harden, Ariza combined for 14 points. 28-18 Rockets.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh. #Rockets starters: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, T. Jones, Howard.

Ira Winderman

Rockets starting Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Trevor Ariza, James Harden, Patrick Beverly. 8 p.m., TNT.

Kurt Helin

Daryl Morey sticks up for James Harden’s defense, says YouTube video “unfair” dlvr.it/7GzsKD

Royce Young

Rockets GM Daryl Morey calls James Harden defense video 'completely unfair' cbsprt.co/125mBjZ

Ira Winderman

ICYMI: For moment in July, Bosh was closer to being teammate of Dwight, Harden than Wade. Now he faces those Rockets. bit.ly/1vXaXUI

Polo Bustamante

Pringle even moves like James Harden.

Ira Winderman

For moment this summer, Bosh was closer to being teammate of Dwight, Harden than Wade. Tues. he faces those Rockets. bit.ly/1vXaXUI

Harden, Howard y Ariza: mucho para unos Warriors sin Curry baloncesto.as.com/baloncesto/201…

David Hardisty

4-1 on the preseason now as #Rockets win 90-83. Harden, Dwight return, JTerry sees first action, but Ariza (13p, 4 stls) has been terrific.

Rusty Simmons

Harrison Barnes is having a field day with James Harden defending him. Barnes has nine points in 8 1/2 minutes.

Rusty Simmons

GSW vs. HOU starters: GSW -- Nedovic, Iguodala, Barnes, Lee, Bogut; HOU -- Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Jones, Howard. Out: Curry, Thompson.

Jonathan Feigen

Another observation since they switched to 5-on-5, full: Harden's still ridiculous with the ball in his hands. Running with Terry on 2nd tm.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden (full), Dwight Howard (half) back for practice blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden went through practice today. And Dwight Howard went through limited practice today. #Rockets

Jonathan Feigen

Howard, Harden expected to practice tmrw. With Davis dominating and Asik now defending for Pels, Howard absence felt. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

James Harden might not have made trip to NO, but he already impressed Pels coach Monty Williams this summer. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Eric Pincus

Kobe cont'd - "I'm sure they'll try to lock us out again, and harden the cap even more" - on owners latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Jonathan Feigen

Same starters for Rockets as last night, with Dorsey in at center for Howard and K-Pap at the 2 for Harden. Terry also did not make trip.

Michael Lee

Had rep for playing D, too RT @Alex Kennedy As a beard-less HS player, James Harden looked like a different person twitpic.com/ecref8

Jimmy Spencer

Let’s use @Staance for second to see how many of you actually disagree with me on this Harden/Howard not being Top 10 staance.com/tag/nba/16827

Jimmy Spencer

If the NBA is re-drafted for one season only, and you have a Top 10 pick, are you really taking Harden or Howard? I’m not.

Jimmy Spencer

James Harden isn't a top 10 player. Neither is Dwight Howard. So no, I don’t think of these Rockets as a "super team. "

Michele Gazzetti

No, fatemi capire, nella lista dei 10 migliori sportivi barbuti, non c'è il signor Harden? bbc.com/sport/0/295734…

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden is loving this stretch - watching his young guys fight.

David Hardisty

If you want to gain an appreciation for James Harden, just watch the Rockets without James Harden.

Jenny Dial Creech

Joey Dorsey and Kostas Papanikolaou starting in place of Dwight Howard and James Harden for the #Rockets tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Dorsey and Papanikolaou starting with Harden, Howard out.

Jonathan Feigen

Further update on James Harden (hip) and Dwight Howard (knee): Both will sit out vs. Pels on Tue, too. Neither injury considered a concern.
