Ira Winderman

Rockets starting Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Trevor Ariza, James Harden, Patrick Beverly. 8 p.m., TNT.

Joseph Goodman

Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

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.

Chris Sheridan

As #Rockets visit #Heat, Chris Bosh mulls what may have been & explains why he stayed. What it means for future FAs: sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/21/sh-…

ICYMI: For moment in July, Bosh was closer to being teammate of Dwight, Harden than Wade. Now he faces those Rockets. bit.ly/1vXaXUI

Jonathan Feigen

Roughly. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @Bostonnnnnn: @Jonathan Feigen do rockets take the Heat preseason game semi serious and rest up vs Magic?

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets practice ended about 35 minutes ago. Almost everyone long gone. TJones, D-Mo still going hard through drills. Been like that a lot.

Jonathan Feigen

Waiting out Rockets practice in Heat facility. Nice wall of 120 or so photos of Heat players, staff posing w/ LOB trophies, family members.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Sorry, I meant that I'm seeing Heat/Rockets tomorrow night. My schedule hasn't gotten that crazy -- 2 games in same night -- yet.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Seeing Bulls/Cavaliers tonight & Heat/Rockets tonight. Mute as you please.

Ira Winderman

For moment this summer, Bosh was closer to being teammate of Dwight, Harden than Wade. Tues. he faces those Rockets. bit.ly/1vXaXUI

Wilson Chandler

If you set your mind free baby maybe you'll understand. Starships & rockets, in a world that don't give a damn...

Wilson Chandler

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.

Bill Ingram

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!

David Hardisty

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.

David Hardisty

The first basket for @Jason Terry as a member of the Houston Rockets -- a 21-foot jumper. youtube.com/watch?v=BhUuA8…

Jonathan Feigen

Jason Terry hits a 3 at the shot-clock buzzer and does his first taking off pantomime in a Rockets uniform.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets rookie center Tarik Black starting the second half. Appears Dwight is done for the night, unless Black is beating him out.

Jonathan Feigen

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.

Jonathan Feigen

Yes. Rockets, like many teams, do keep those stats. RT @dloper79: @Jonathan Feigen Like, the pass that leads to an assist?

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 27, Houston 24 (end 1) Steve Kerr wasn't happy w/ Friday's defense. Limiting the Rockets to 38.1% will make him a little happier.

David Hardisty

Still looks strange -- Jason Terry checks in for his first Rockets action. http://t.co/bLbM5I06gw

Jonathan Feigen

Jason Terry, Ish Smith first guards off Rockets bench, getting his first time of preseason. Papanikolaou also in.

Jonathan Feigen

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.

Jonathan Feigen

Speaking of which, many Rockets rotation and roster spots to be determined in the four games this week. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets starters to get about 3 stints. Might be more interesting to see who plays off bench, including Terry. GS sitting Thompson, Curry.

Jenny Dial Creech

Camp does little to set reserves, rotation for Rockets houstonchronicle.com/sports/rockets…

Alvin Gentry

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.

Jonathan Feigen

We rarely see any real Rockets practice time, but I can now confirm Pat Beverley practices the way he plays. An intense pest.

Kurt Helin

Report: Rockets have ‘zero interest’ in taking on Chase Budinger’s contract dlvr.it/7F6lJk

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have zero interest in his contract. RT @liuSamPark: @Jonathan Feigen rumor about Chasebudinger's back, need confirm pls

Eric Pincus

Technically the Rockets only have 15 fully guaranteed but Patrick Beverley (non-g) makes it 16 @BBallInsiders

John Reid

Patric Young in the game after not playing on Tuesday against Rockets.

Jenny Dial Creech

Going to McAllen is like trip down memory lane for several Rockets blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

John Reid

Pelicans coach Monty Williams said a priority tonight is limiting turnovers. They had 23 against the Rockets on Tuesday night.

Michael Lee

Dwight Howard: “I don’t think the players that I play against have forgotten me. I just think it’s everybody else on the outside." #rockets

Jenny Dial Creech

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."
