Rockets SL coach Chris Finch: "D-Mo did everything we asked. He rebounded, played tough defense. We knew he could score inside."

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets lose in summer championship game, but have to be pleased with roster guys, particularly D-Mo. Some good signs from Canaan, Johnson.

Quixem Ramirez

And the Rockets' nightmare offseason culminates with a second place finish in Summer League. *END SCENE*

Quixem Ramirez

The Rockets still have the same amount of Summer League championships as the Spurs. Silver lining!

Jason Jones

FINAL: Kings 77, Rockets 68. Ray McCallum led all scorers with 29 points, 9 in the fourth quarter.

Jon Santiago

The Kings look like they're trying to move the ball, but the Rockets are giving them no passing lanes. Houston leads 58-50 w/ 6:31 to go.

Jon Santiago

No easy baskets for the Kings in this game. Rockets defense has been stout compared to last few teams the Kings have played.

Jon Santiago

Rockets lead the Kings 52-50 after three quarters. Ray McCallum making a strong case for game MVP with 20 points for Sacramento.

Jonathan Feigen

Heading into final quarter in Vegas, Summer Rockets up 52-50 on Summer Kings. D-Mo w/ 14; Canaan, Johnson 12 each. McCallum 20 for Sac.

Jonathan Feigen

Summer Kings up 36-34 on Summer Rockets at half of SL title game. D-Mo w 10p, but lot of summer league legs out there. Hou shooting 31.7 %.

Jon Santiago

Halftime: Kings 36, Rockets 34. Ray McCallum with 10 points and Nik Stauskas with 8. Montiejunas with 10 for the Rockets.

Jason Jones

Kings lead Rockets 38-36 at halftime. 10 points for Ray McCallum, 8 for Nik Stauskas. Montiejunas has 10 points for Houston.

Jon Santiago

Ray McCallum yelled out: "Oh, that's over the back" on that last Houston Rockets rebound before halftime.

Marc J. Spears

Find it hard to believe there were 41 better players in the draft than ex-Arizona star Nick Johnson. Nice pick for Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Summer Rockets up on Summer Kings, 17-16, after 1. In 8th game in 10 days, Chris Finch went to bench early. Bench did not give him much.

Jon Santiago

End of first quarter: Rockets 17, Kings 16.

Jon Santiago

Score update: Rockets with an 13-5 first quarter lead over the Kings w/ 4:37 to go in the period.

Which was apparently enough for Hornets coach Patrick Ewing to think I was w/ Rockets and give me a congratulatory handshake.

Lang Whitaker

Ended up stuck behind Rockets players/staff in handshake line with Hornets coaches/players. Didn't realize I was wearing red shirt.
