Josh Robbins

Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza just arrived on the Rockets' bench.

Jonathan Feigen

Apparently, Ariza and Howard will enjoy watching in the lockerroom. That leaves only Ish Smith and Joe Rogowski as former Magi on Hou bench.

Ethan J. Skolnick

ICYMI: Talked to Pau Gasol & Trevor Ariza this week about Miami's FA pursuit m.bleacherreport.com/articles/22395…

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza getting the night off for Rockets tonight.

Tony Jones

Reggie Miller is very wrong. Trevor Ariza is NOT an upgrade from Chandler Parsons. No way.

Jonathan Feigen

Great stretch of hustle as Ariza dives past Wade to bat a loose ball from backcourt to frontcourt before Jones dives past him to save it.

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...

David Hardisty

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

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza has stood out pretty much every preseason game. Caught defending on a 2-on-1 break, just drew a charge on DWade. Hit his 1st 2 treys.

Surya Fernandez

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

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.

Jonathan Feigen

As Ariza comes out for Papanikolaou, he asks the PA guy, "For who?" The response: "For Trevor Areeeeeeza."

Rusty Simmons

Houston 47, #Warriors 42 (half) Nedovic 10 pts/3 ast, Barnes 9 pts, Holiday 5 pts; Ariza 11 pts/3 ast, Howard 9 pts/8 reb, Beverley 8 pts.

Jonathan Feigen

He can pronounce Papanikolaou but not Ariza? OK.

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza is 4-4 from the field for 9 points with 2 steals in the first 9 minutes of the first quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza tells Steve Kerr to pipe down so he can tell the PA guy how to pronounce his name. Now, if someone can turn down volume on the PA guy.

Jonathan Feigen

As you probably heard if you have a window open in Houston, our PA guy keeps mispronouncing Ariza. Ariza gave him a long stare after bucket.

Rusty Simmons

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

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

McHale playing Ariza, Beverley more than he intended tonight. Wanted to get things settled down for guys playing with them.

Jimmy Smith

Tonight's #Rockets starters; Ariza, Jones, Dorsey, Papanikolau, Beverley.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the 1st half - Rockets lead Phoenix 44-40. DMo leads all scorers with 8 pts. Johnson, Ariza and Jones have 6 each for the Rockets.

David Hardisty

Rockets post-game interviews with McHale, Ariza, Tarik Black, Papanikolaou and Ish Smith are up. bit.ly/1v9JRJP

David Hardisty

Courtney Lee thought the Rockets played faster w/ Dwight out, says Ariza will be a good addition. "He is a very low mistake kind of guy."

Jonathan Feigen

Francisco Garcia and Papanikolaou check in for Harden and Ariza. Got to think the Rockets starters are done five minutes into second half.

David Hardisty

Harden (14p), Beverley (9p), Ariza (8p) all looked sharp against a top defense in first half. Rockets up 52-35 at the break.

Chip Crain

Trevor Ariza was the reason the Wizards made the playoffs last season? Seriously?

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza already has 3 steals in the first 5 minutes of this game.

Chip Crain

Beverly, Harden, Adrien, Jones and Ariza

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza in 22 min: 12 pts on 5-7 FG, 4 reb, 3 assists, +3. Chandler Parsons in 24 min: 14 pts on 3-7 FG, 1 reb, 1 assist, -3.

David Hardisty

Doesn't look like Rockets miss Parsons much as Ariza filling in nicely, but there are major questions about the bench. 64-54 Mavs at half.

Jenny Dial Creech

Trevor Ariza is making a lot of Rockets fans feel more at ease tonight. He is fitting in nicely.

Lang Greene

Trevor Ariza said it was tough to leave Washington. The Wizards may be in for a struggle defensively washingtonpost.com/news/sports/wp…

Earl K. Sneed

Gotta love this Chandler Parsons vs. Trevor Ariza matchup. Both have 6 pts in 5 mins. #DALvsHOU

Rockets' Ariza has learned to tailor game toward needs of team houstonchronicle.com/sports/rockets…

Jonathan Feigen

When NBA's uber-rich new TV deals kick in, Rockets could have as few as 2 players, Harden and Ariza, under contract. Beverley likely, too.
