Good test run for Rockets & Heat tonight. Both teams playing regular starters, rotation, w/ exception of McRoberts' absence for Miami.
Rockets starting Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Trevor Ariza, James Harden, Patrick Beverly. 8 p.m., TNT.
Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.
Same Rockets starters, rotation as we have seen lately, McHale said. That had Black as b/up center, Smith as b/up point, Pap as backup SF.
Rockets practice ended about 35 minutes ago. Almost everyone long gone. TJones, D-Mo still going hard through drills. Been like that a lot.
Waiting out Rockets practice in Heat facility. Nice wall of 120 or so photos of Heat players, staff posing w/ LOB trophies, family members.
Sorry, I meant that I'm seeing Heat/Rockets tomorrow night. My schedule hasn't gotten that crazy -- 2 games in same night -- yet.
Seeing Bulls/Cavaliers tonight & Heat/Rockets tonight. Mute as you please.
If you set your mind free baby maybe you'll understand. Starships & rockets, in a world that don't give a damn...
Starships & rockets in a world that don't give damn. Bullets fly pass me, who can I trust?! A player doing the best I can.
Not sure what the Rockets can realistically expect from Jason Terry, but it's nice to see him get a chance to win...class act all the way!
Jason Terry hits a 3 at the shot-clock buzzer and does his first taking off pantomime in a Rockets uniform.
Rockets rookie center Tarik Black starting the second half. Appears Dwight is done for the night, unless Black is beating him out.
Rockets have used Papanikolaou as a stretch four late in the half, as McHale discussed this week. It's been a good look with GS going small.
Still looks strange -- Jason Terry checks in for his first Rockets action. http://t.co/bLbM5I06gw
Jason Terry, Ish Smith first guards off Rockets bench, getting his first time of preseason. Papanikolaou also in.
With Nick Johnson on tm and Dwight high-flying again, Rockets' pregame dunk contest takes a serious step up. Dorsey puts on a show, too.
Rockets starters to get about 3 stints. Might be more interesting to see who plays off bench, including Terry. GS sitting Thompson, Curry.
In McAllen Tx. On the way to arena to play the Rockets. Great weather but very humid. Heading back to Dub Nation after the game.
We rarely see any real Rockets practice time, but I can now confirm Pat Beverley practices the way he plays. An intense pest.
Patric Young in the game after not playing on Tuesday against Rockets.
Pelicans coach Monty Williams said a priority tonight is limiting turnovers. They had 23 against the Rockets on Tuesday night.
Dwight Howard is hopeful he will play in the next Rockets game. Says his knee is a lot better. “It feels good running up and down, jumping."
