On pace, D-Mo, Canaan and a hack-a-Joey. RT @ReidLaymance: Rockets 102, Kings 89: Five thoughts from @jonathan_feigen blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Isaiah Canaan

Nice win tonight!! Blessed to have all of my fam in town for Thanksgiving!! Everyone be Safe!!

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets first in points allowed per game and 3-point shooting % defense; 2nd in overall shooting % defense.

Jonathan Feigen

Holding the Kings to 89 pts on 43.7 % shooting, Rockets regained the top spot in defensive rating, allowing 94.5 points per 100 possessions.

Donatas Motiejunas

W!!! 12-3 #Rockets #Pursuit thanks for the support!!! ;)

Jonathan Feigen

In past 3 gms, Motiejunas made 21 of 34 shots, matched longest run of double-digit scoring games in his career. Had career high 21 tonight.

Rockets Power Dancers

Make sure you tune in to the Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow morning to see us & Clutch the Bear! #turkeyday #RPD #Rockets

Rockets Power Dancers

Another win for the Houston Rockets! What a fun game

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan had 6 3-pointers, the fourth Rockets player with at least 6 in a game (with Harden, Ariza, Beverley). No other team with more than 1.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets NBA's most turnover-prone tm. Had 4. Ranked 27th in def rebounding %, playing No. 1 off reb tm, gave up 0 2nd chance pts in 2nd 1/2.

David Hardisty

McHale praised Harden's defense, saying it was a sign of maturity as a player that he's bringing it there when his offense is struggling.

Jonathan Feigen

Black played with an eye infection. McHale, however, kept D-Mo in on Cousins because of how he was playing, not the hack-a.

Jenny Dial Creech

Tarik Black played tonight with an eye infection because Rockets were short on bigs.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 102, Kings 89. Harden struggles shooting, but posts 26p-8a-7r-3blk-2stl. Career-highs Canaan (24p), D-Mo (21p). Rockets 12-3!

Jenny Dial Creech

Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels in for the final 33.9 seconds.

Howard Chen

Pretty exciting seeing @Isaiah Canaan's development in his 2nd season. 6 3's tonight. 24pts. 4stls. 6rebs. 4 assists. Game's not done. #RedNation

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan with a new career high tonight too. He has 24. D-Mo has his with 21.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings had everything going their way, but the Rockets had their two stars -- Motiejunas and Canaan. Career high for both.

David Hardisty

New career-high for @Isaiah Canaan -- 24 points. HUGE three!

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden get s steal then a drive, finishing with a momentum-stealing slam. #Rockets lead 95-85 with 2:07 to play.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with a drive, a steal and a breakaway. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 left. He's 9 of 30, but has 24-8-7.

Howard Chen

Not a typo RT @David Hardisty: Harden may have just won the game with his defense.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden is back… after a third quarter slump, he is looking pretty good.

David Hardisty

Harden may have just won the game with his defense.

Howard Chen

Mental lapse by Thompson on the goaltend.

David Hardisty

Papanikolaou misses the first and makes the second free throw, ending the Rockets charity stripe skid at 9.

Howard Chen

Can't stop that D-Mo hook shot! #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Motiejunas with a fadeaway, right-handed hook, has a career-high 21.

Jenny Dial Creech

D-Mo just got his career high - 21 points tonight.

David Hardisty

New career-high in scoring for @Donatas Motiejunas: 21 points.

Howard Chen

Canaan and D-Mo combining for 40 points is a really good thing. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets might have to get Black back in to match up with Cousins. Motiejunas with four fouls with 4:50 left.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden through his hands in the air after hitting that one. #relief

David Hardisty

Harden misses the wide open three, but gets a second chance and nails the corner three! Rockets up 9, 4:54 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Since Cousins checked back in, he's had two turnovers and missed a layup. Motiejunas scored on him on one end, drew a charge on other.

Howard Chen

. @TexasWBB improves to 4-0 with a W over Texas Pan Am. Leading the way? Woodlands ex @_kelseylang with 20pts on 10-13 FG's, 7rebs. #Hookem

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets up 6 with Cousins back in. He'sd matched up with Motiejunas.

Howard Chen

Cousins is now back. Without him, this Kings' team is starkly different on both ends of the floor.

David Hardisty

The 3-4 min starting stretch of fourth when Harden sits has been tough for Rockets lately, but they kept the 4-pt lead as Harden returns.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have no Dwight, Jones, Beverley. Harden's shot missing since 1st q. They are 5 of 13 from line. Somehow, still up 4.

David Hardisty

The Rockets have missed their last 8 free throw attempts.

Jonathan Feigen

I stand corrected. Cousins sits. Kings immediately go to Carl Landry.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets lead 77-73 heading into 4th. Have some time before Kings in bonus, go to hack-a-Joey/Tarik. First few minutes with Cousins in key.

Howard Chen

Canaan scored more points in the 3rd quarter than any King outside of Cousins for the game up until this point. #RedNation

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan really bailed out Houston in the third, scoring 14 of his 21. Rockets clinging to a 77-73 edge heading to the 4th.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the 3rd, #Rockets still ahead… barely. 77-73.

Howard Chen

You must be psychic. Impressive lol RT @Jenny Dial Creech: I know what Joey Dorsey will be working on at practice tomorrow.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets get a time out to get Motiejunas into the game before Dorsey could miss any more free throws. But that puts D-Mo on Cousins.

David Hardisty

After the Kings intentionally fouled Dorsey twice and he missed 4 straight free throws, McHale calls timeout just to get Joey out of there.

Jenny Dial Creech

I know what Joey Dorsey will be working on at practice tomorrow.

Jonathan Feigen

Cousins was chasing Garcia into the corner. No reason with Kings fouling. Stopped to complain to Zach Zarba. Staying in the game.

Jenny Dial Creech

DeMarcus Cousins having a knee issue but is up walking to the bench.

Jonathan Feigen

Cousins stayed down in the corner during a Kings time out, walks very carefull to bench.

David Hardisty

DeMarcus Cousins in down on the ground holding his right knee.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings go to a hack-a-Joey. Could be a long night.

Jenny Dial Creech

He looks human for the first time in weeks. RT @David Hardisty: Harden has no mojo right now, even missing a pair of free throws.

David Hardisty

Harden has no mojo right now, even missing a pair of free throws.

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan's five 3s are a career high. He just had two open looks to get his career high scoring night, but missed.

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan, however, has gone into Vipers mode. Has 12 in nine third-quarter minutes.

David Hardisty

DeMarcus Cousins looks like the same hothead to me.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan hits his fourth three of the third period, his fifth of the night (a new career-high).

Jonathan Feigen

Harden 1 of 15 with 1 assist since the first quarter. For some reason, with his shot, 3 starters out, Rockets having trouble scoring.

Jenny Dial Creech

The Rockets and third quarters don’t seem to be getting along well these days.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets not just missing 3s. Actually, that's all they've made for awhile thanks to Canaan. Harden short on 2 drives, an 18-footer.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan gets the steal from Cousins, then hits a 3 on the other end.

David Hardisty

Since starting the game 4-6 from the field after one quarter, James Harden is now 1-14 from the field.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 1 of 13 to end the first half and start the second in 15-3 Kings run to within 2.

David Hardisty

James Harden has had two big-league rejections from behind in this quarter, but Rockets can't buy a basket. Timeout McHale, 60-58 Houston.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets were up by as much as 22 in the first half. Now up 1.

Jonathan Feigen

On the other end, Harden has cooled off badly. He's made 1 of his last 10 shots.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with a strong block of a Cousins shot. Hearing about it (or something) from Reggie Evans.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings 11 of 17 in 2nd quarter. Rockets have no one to match up w/ Cousins with Howard out. Black, Dorsey with 3 fouls each and 3 rebs total.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings just pounding the ball inside and drawing fouls. That has gotten their scoring going, but also slowed the Rockets to a crawl.

David Hardisty

Kings close the half on a 17-5 run and we've got a game. Houston leads 57-50 at intermission.

Jonathan Feigen

Of all the players you would not expect to square off, Ariza and Casspi just did. Double-Ts.

Jenny Dial Creech

Double technical on Ariza and Casspi for having a small scuffle. Would not expect that from either...

David Hardisty

Ariza and Casspi nearly come to blows.

Jonathan Feigen

D-Mo steps out of bounds. First Rockets turnovers of game, 3 miunutes left in half. Rockets have been most turnover prone team in NBA.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets just got their first turnover of the game - with 3:09 in the second quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have really slowed down offensively since they started having to take the ball out of the net so often. Kings cut 22-pt lead in half

David Hardisty

Joey Dorsey's highlight of the year (a basket and foul against DeMarcus Cousins)... and the refs waive it off.

Jonathan Feigen

Dorsey misses a layup and McHale immediately grabs his head with both hands.

Jenny Dial Creech

Ariza was limping on his left foot a little but didn’t want to come out.

Howard Chen

D-Mo having quite the first half here! #RedNation
