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.

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…

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.
