Trevor Ariza: “Tonight was fun. Great atmosphere, high intensity basketball game."
And that's what the Wizards dont currently have. Trevor F. Ariza on defense
Overtime in Houston. Never a doubt that LeBron was shooting that. He goes into OT w/ 34. Harden w/ 32. Ariza has 5 fouls.
James ran shot clock down to final ticks, missed from 23 feet. Good D by Ariza. Overtime seems about right today.
Ariza's a good defensive player, but how does he left LeBron get to his right again?
Harden immediately tells Ariza "Shoot it." Doesn't normally have to remind him.
Harden just told Ariza “Shoot it” after that traveling call.
Trevor Ariza right in Mozgov's face after hard foul on Harden, got T'ed up. Things getting VERY chippy here in Houston.
Now Ariza is chirping at Timo and the Cavs' bench. He gets T'd up.
Getting rowdy in here. Now Mozgov and Ariza are chirping. Ariza T'd up.
It’s heated in here. Now Ariza has some words for Mozgov - Ariza earns himself a technical foul.
Now Mozgov & Ariza getting into it. J.R. Smith is the guy trying to keep Mozgov cool.
How can Hubie talk about Lebron getting fouled by 2 Rockets (no call) on same drive & not mention James pushing Ariza & holding his shorts?
Trevor Ariza plays with an edge defensively. Officials allowing some contact to occur, so he's taking advantage.
LeBron yelling at Danny Crawford during stoppage. Wanted foul on Ariza.
While some teams rotate defenders on stars like James, Harden, McHale believes in using "best defender on the floor." Ariza will be busy.
The Wizards may be at the top of the unwatchable rankings right now. Holes on the wings the main reason. Get well, Beal. Ariza is missed.
FINAL: Rockets 102, Nets 98. GREAT comeback as late 8-0 Rocket run changed the gm. TJones (26p-12r), Ariza (20p) were huge. Harden 15-12-5.
Johnson missed his second free throw. Ariza comes away with rebound. Jones can clinch win with free throws with 8.2 left.
Back-to-back games for Ariza with five made triples, and Rockets really needed that last one. 86-83 Nets, 5:40 left.
Trevor Ariza’s fifth 3 of the night (he is 5/8) puts the Rockets back within 3 points. 5:40 to play.
Another different combination for Rockets. Going with Prigioni, Terry, Brewer, Ariza and Smith. Will be all pick-and-roll for awhile.
Nets up 57-53 at halftime. Plumlee and Brown lead Nets with 11 points each; Terrence Jones has 14 points & Trevor Ariza has 11 for Houston.
HALF: Nets 57, Rockets 53. TJones (14p), Ariza (11p) leading Houston. Harden just 1-6 FG, but has 7 dimes. Pablo has 5 assists in 7 min.
Harden finds Ariza in the corner for three then Bev scores on a drive plus the foul. His free throw here can give Rockets their first lead.
Game is tied for the first time since the opening tip on a Trevor Ariza 3-pointer. 48-all with 3:18 to go in first half.
Rockets with a rotation change. Beverley and Prigioni check in to start second quarter. Ariza had been with that group with Brewer at two.
Last time the Wizards played in Philly, Trevor Ariza made 8 3s and had 40 points. Wizards haven’t made 8 3s as a team in last 6 games.
FINAL: Rockets 110, Clips 105. BIG W. Harden (21p-10a) gets 1st win vs LAC as a Rocket. Brewer 20p, DMo 18p-9r, Ariza 17p, TJones 14p-5blk.
Terry and Harden are coming in for Prigioni and Ariza.
Trevor Ariza’s 3-pointer puts Rockets up by five. He is current leading scorer for Rockets with 17.
Rockets open the second half with Ariza on Paul. Will likely not help him on screens to keep a body on Jordan.
Same starting lineup as last game for Rockets- Ariza, Jones, Motiejunas, Harden, Terry. Beverley out with flu symptoms.
When Terry came off bench, Brewer often picked up top point guards. I asked McHale if Ariza might check CP3, but he left it as "we'll see."
Still love Trevor Ariza's reaction as he watches the scoreboard replay of Harden crushing Rubio. http://t.co/LafP83rB9m
After starting the game 1-15 from three-point range, the Rockets have hit 10-22 since. Big shot there by Ariza. 104-98 Rockets, 1:56 left.
Josh Smith hitting 36.9% from three since joining Rockets. We now live in a world where 'Smoove for 3' is a better option than Ariza or Bev.
Not that Wolves are disrespecting Rockets' 3-point shooters, but just triple-teamed Smith in post. Ariza missed a 3. Rockets 1 of 12 on 3s..
