Crazy weather night down here in Houston area. Just saw near Pasadena 2.2 inches of rain fell in 15 minutes tonight
Parsons: "I definitely feel much better today. I was able to get through everything and went up and down and did all the contact stuff."
I can tell which deals were shot before my hip replacement and right after. Just thinking of them hurts ;)

Parsons plans on playing tomorrow, barring no setbacks..
Per Rick Carlisle, Chandler Parsons (right knee) and Devin Harris (left great toe) both practiced today and are expected to play Game 1.
The Czar with a good point that Hack-a-Rondo could be enforced, and very mysterious why teams didn't go to it in the regular season.
KJ McDaniels probably wouldn't have played 10 minutes against the Mavs, but there was always a chance he could go Corey Brewer, Game 1.
"He's trending the right way, but it's all very calculated. The hope is to have him available for Game 1." -- RCarlisle on CParsons
Rick Carlisle said guard Devin Harris (turf toe on his left foot) will play in Game 1.
Rick Carlisle on Houston: "We're going to have to run them off the (3-point) line. And when you do that, they drive the heck out of it."
Rick Carlisle says signs are "promising but not definite" that Chandler Parsons will be available Game 1. Devin Harris looks ready to go.
Devin Harris explained his injury as "turf toe." That's why I'm not a doctor. I thought you had to be on Astroturf to get "turf toe.''

Is Rondo kissing the court after a win one of his quirks that I just haven't heard about? http://t.co/kpiUskwP0m
Dirk shot 52% on 3-pointers in March? I did not realize that. He's at 42% since the All Star break.
Since the All Star break, the Mavericks are a below average 3-point shooting team. 16th in attempts, 19th in percentage (33.6%).
Byproduct of NO winning is we get a fascinating Mavs-Rockets series. So many great plot lines & its fresh. 10 yrs since last playoff series
Have a real fondness for city of New Orleans, bet their crowd was something to behold last night. Truly happy for Pelicans staff & fans
ahahaha Dirk forgot Morey's name. "It's more of a rivalry since Cuban and what's-his-face went back and forth a little bit."
Carlisle: "What's important is our group, how tight together we are and how strong our will is."
Rick Carlisle: "I don't think you're going to hear Mark [Cuban] say anything during this series."
PLAYOFF RICHARD JEFFERSON wait, am I doing this right?

Generic Carlisle quote on the Rockets. http://t.co/xyfvT22i7j
Dirk: “I think there was a little too much up-and-down to really make a push at home court. ... But overall 50 wins is not bad at all."
Dirk was rocking faded blue suede shoes after the game. That has to be a good sign.
Appreciate the Scott Brooks bashers for chiming in.
"No, officer, never seen this man before in my life. What did he do again? He hoarded food? Absolutely shameful." http://t.co/eHox0DDvyI
Tyson Chandler: "We've had an up-and-down year this year, so to be able to come out of it with 50 wins is an achievement."
People love to bash on Scott Brooks, but getting them to 45 wins w the injuries & roster turnover is pretty decent. Lost a ton of tight gms.
Mavericks 1-0 with Johnny Manziel in attendance. Also 1-0 with Naughty By Nature performing at halftime.
Carlisle: "It's going to be Houston, and they're a great team that's had a great year. They've got two of the greatest players in the game."
Please be OK, Paul George. Please.
The Spurs went from homecourt advantage in 1st 2 rounds to none. Rockets, 20 years ago, are only team to win a title as low as 6th seed.
Tyson Chandler on JET: "I'm not giving him any advice [on coming back]. ... still love him, though."
Tyson Chandler on guarding Harden: "Not with one person. Gonna have a lot of eyes on him."
Richard Jefferson has a tiny speck of blood on his nose. "They were doing anything they could to stop me out there. It was a bloodbath."
Rick Carlisle on the entire Southwest Division making the playoffs: "It's the toughest division in sports."
