Jared Weiss

Brad Stevens on D-Mo: “He’s really good. His size first and foremost was a problem. You could see that right out of the gate.” #Rockets

Emily Austen

A close comeback but the #Celtics come up short to the #Rockets, 93-87. Bass (17), Thornton (17), Prince (13); Motiejunas (26), Harden (14)

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 93, Celtics 87. Discouraging 2nd half, but rare to get W when Harden goes 4-21 FG. DMo career-high 26p + 12r, Smoove 15-10.

Jared Weiss

James Harden hasn’t hit a shot in 13 minutes of play. #Rockets

David Hardisty

Ariza passed up a wide open three for an extra pass, resulting in a lower percentage shot. Rockets have been a mess on offense in 2nd half.

Rockets without a hint of ball or body movement in the second half. Offense mostly reduced to 3s and turnovers.

Gary Washburn

#rockets scored 60 in first half and just 22 in first 19 minutes of second half

Josh Smith and Terrence Jones giving the Rockets some of that "rim protection" McHale talked about. youtube.com/watch?v=WJLhQm…

Jonathan Feigen

Bizarro half for Rockets offensively. Harden is 3 of 13; rest of Rockets 21 of 33. Rockets just 4 tos. Rockets up 60-42. D-Mo with 16.

¿Recuerdas cuando Hasheem Thabeet fue seleccionado antes de James Harden? #Rockets #Celtics

Gary Washburn

Sad part for #celtics is they've held Harden to 11 points on 3-for-12 shooting, rest of #rockets are 21-for-33 for 49 points.

Jessica Camerato

Remember when Hasheem Thabeet was drafted before James Harden? #Rockets #Celtics
