Would be surprise at this point if Beverley NOT ruled out for season, since Rockets know surgery is inevitable, but formal word on the way

Howard Chen

Grizzlies lose, #Rockets move to 2nd in the West. #Flames won today too for hockey, so today has been a quality day.

Marc Stein

Next up on @espnradio's NBA Insiders: Houston Rockets GM @Daryl Morey joins us. LISTEN: espnradio.com or via the @espnradio app

Sean Highkin

So, if the Grizzlies lose this, the Rockets overtake them for the 2 seed. Grizzlies move right back into a Spurs matchup.

Dan McCarney

Yes, that was JEFF Green. My fault. In other news, the Spurs lead the visiting Houston Rockets 30-28.

Jonathan Feigen

Up to 35 guesses on who is second on Rockets in total blocked shots. No one got it (or cheated).I'm going to call it. K.J. McDaniels.

Jonathan Feigen

Anyone know who is second on Rockets in blocked shots? Honor system. No cheating.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden does block an occasional shot, but he's third on the Rockets because Howard and Jones have missed more than half of the Rockets gms.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard on Harden's late-game block. "I’m surprised he got up there. He’s not known for blocking shots." (Harden 3rd on Rockets in blocks.)

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets tied with Memphis for 2nd in West (Griz with tie-breaker) heading into Grizzlies at Spurs tonight. McHale: "I'm looking at Toronto."

Vince Cellini

This is why @James Harden is my MVP, was relentless sans Howard & is the keeper of team "Tough Juice" recipe he mixes on court. @Houston Rockets

Andres Pando

La visita al plantel de @Argentina en Washington dio suerte: @Pablo Prigioni hizo su mejor partido con los Rockets. #NBA http://t.co/ckOMvN1usj

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets pull off the 99-91 win over Wizards. They play Toronto tomorrow.

Vince Cellini

Turns out Prigioni is better on a better team. Gonna need that . @Houston Rockets #Paisan

Royce Young

Rockets 99, Wizards 91. Houston is 50-23, tied with Memphis for the second-best record in the West. http://t.co/qVZUPsLW8q

FINAL Wizards 91 - Rockets 99 Harden: 24-3-3 Wall: 25-12-8 Estadísticas, aquí. ver.as/btqpe http://t.co/WmvIvltlh2

Calvin Watkins

Rockets win, 99-91. Move into a tie with Memphis for the No. 2 seed in the West. Memphis is at San Antonio tonight.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 99, Wizards 91. Win number 50 is in the books! Harden 24-6a, Brewer 15p, Smoove 14p-10r. Good min for Prigioni, NJohnson.

Jenny Dial Creech

Lots of minutes for Nick Johnson today. Good for the Rockets to have him ready and able to to go in this upcoming stretch.

Jonathan Feigen

Stat monitor just came on, proving this game is hideous to look at in many ways. Saying Rockets are winning ugly would insult ugly people.

Paul Garcia

IF, if, the Grizzlies fell to the Spurs today, and the Rockets hold on to beat the Wizards, HOU would take over the 2-seed out West.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets lineup: Johnson, Pablo, Harden, Ariza and Smith.

David Hardisty

With momentum going the wrong way, Pablo Prigioni pulls up and nails a three, then he finds Brewer for another three. Rockets back up 85-75.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards have outscored Rockets 17-8 since Porter entered the game in 3Q.

Jorge Castillo

Porter dunk, Sessions layup and it's somehow 76-72. Rockets timeout.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets went 5 of 23 in 3rd, but end quarter with Brewer going coast-to-coast. He's got 12. Dwight starting fourth with 8 min left on limit.

Calvin Watkins

Corey Brewer ends the 3Q with a layup at the buzzer. Rockets up 76-67 after 3.

Jonathan Feigen

Wall dives for loose ball, gets it to Porter for a layup and draws Dorsey's 4th foul. Rockets pull Dorsey making Ariza (?) center.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets closing out on Pierce, making him pump fake, take one-, two-dribble jumpers. He takes a seat shooting 1 of 6.

Rashad Mobley

Wall is heating up and the Rockets are missing Patrick Beverley right about now

Jonathan Feigen

Wizards on a 7-0 crawl, cut Rockets lead to 8.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets with a 1 of 9 start to second half. Ball movement has slowed badly.

Tom Ziller

Ensuring we never get a long Wizards-Rockets series is the best reason to keep conferences.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets shot 58.5 percent from the floor in 1half. Wiz shot 37.2.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets had just two buckets in the half that were not in the paint or from the 3-point line. That's one more than in all of Friday's game.

Jonathan Feigen

Wizards shot badly -- 16 of 43 -- in the first half, but Rockets also kept them out of the paint. Wiz just 9 of 20 in the paint.

Abraham Romero

Descanso Wizards 46 - Rockets 59. Cómodo Houston. 14 puntos de Harden y 12 de Josh Smith. ver.as/nzfnb

David Hardisty

Harden blows past Bradley Beal and hits the floater at the buzzer. 59-46 Rockets at half. vine.co/v/OLbxMEUhiTH

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 59, Wizards 46 at half. Harden w/ a rush late has 14. Smith w/ fast start has 12. Rockets owning paint, 32-18, with most bigs out.

Calvin Watkins

James Harden ends the half by scoring on a drive. Rockets up 59-46.

Jorge Castillo

Beal did everything he could to deny Harden the ball but he gets it anyway, drives, & hits the floater at the buzzer. 59-46 Rockets at half.

Jorge Castillo

In a nutshell RT @Michael Lee: These teams really playing 2 different games http://t.co/Yw11cPTjTe #wizards #rockets (h/t @CerebralSportex)
