If one of those sharks bites Katie Perry, Roger Goodell would give it two game suspension.
Lenny Kravitz has found the Fountain of Youth. Dude looks the same (if not better) than he did when I watched him on MTV in the early 90s.
Inflated balls at the halftime show!!!
Katy Perry on a tiger. I like this.
How do yAll grade the commercials so far??
These commercials are more depressing than funny this year...
Should be 14-0 already but 🐸☕️
Budweiser puppy/Clydesdale commercial... I think I have something in my eye.
Who does everyone got today!? I'm rolling with the Patriots!
Going to watch Super Bowl!!! http://t.co/E0wLAm0m55
Flight from Detroit canceled so I'll be watching the Super Bowl on DVR -- unless someone tweets something about it.
Not exactly expecting Nick Johnson to play right now, but timing is interesting after Bev, Canaan played so poorly yesterday.
Rockets recall Nick Johnson from the Vipers.
Rockets running the RGV shuttle again. This time, it's rookie guard Nick Johnson getting called up from the Vipers.
Josh Smith said return to Detroit was not emotional. "I haven’t been here long enough to feel any kind of weight,” Said would be in Atlanta.
Harden on his knee: "Knee-on-knee, right on the bone. I couldn’t feel my leg. It was numb. I was just hoping it wasn’t as bad as it felt."
McHale on playing Ariza-Brewer together late instead of Bev or a PG: "We couldn't stop Augustin, so we thought we'd try something else."
FINAL: Pistons 114, Rockets 101. Nice comeback try late, but ugly showing for 3 q's. Rockets need to fix some things, with & without Dwight.
Patrick Beverley has been on the bench for the entire fourth quarter. 100-94 Pistons, 2:40 left.
Harden's night has gone from the training room to within triple double range. Has 22-7-8.
Isaiah Canaan not making a strong case for additional playing time. He's 0-5 on wide open threes and not slowing Augustin (neither is Bev).
Rockets start fourth with 10-0 run, 14-0 to end 3rd, start 4th. Cut lead to 7. But Monroe checking back in.
Papanikolaou knows nothing about the Rockets struggles. 14-0 Rocket run has Houston within seven, 9:38 left.
McHale goes deeper into his bench. Trotted out Isaiah Canaan in third quarter. Papanikolaou in to start the fourth.
Drummond wasn't close to being straight up and down when he clobbered Harden on that drive. Only 3 sec left in Q, so refs swallowed whistle.
Harden finishes a break with a slam. The Rockets will have to fix their defense in the coming days. His knee, however, seems fine.
Guess Harden is feeling OK. Went back to a Eurostep so good fans shouted it was a walk.
Defense inside so bad right now, Harden blocked a Singler 3. Singler got the rebound on a bounce and put in a layup. McHale nearly threw up.
All 18 Pistons points in 6:10 of second half at the rim or from the line. Rockets with no sign of interior defense.
Thirty-six seconds into second half, McHale calls time out. Rockets defending the paint as if they are directing traffic.
Harden will start the second half. Man, that looked waaaaay worse than that.
Harden could return. Bruised left knee. Much better news than it seemed.
Hoping/waiting to hear good news. I've watched the Harden knee injury replay a few times & his reaction is not good. http://t.co/cklk4gksPb
Harden had gone to the basket with a Eurostep that looked like so many others. Immediately grabbed his left knee.
Harden up, but heads very slowly to the locker room.
Harden stayed down after a drive. Has barely moved.
Pistons fans getting just what they wanted. Pistons up 45-36 and Josh Smith is 1 of 6. Not sure that's the order of their preferences.
Spencer Dinwiddie was in the D-League a week ago, but he just went 80 feet untouched for a layup. HOU defense not there tonight. 43-31 DET.
Pistons killing Rockets the Rockets' way. Up 43-31, all but two points in the lane, on 3s or from the line. Rockets defense not in town.
32-27 Pistons after one. Houston defense struggling so far -- Detroit shot over 58% in first. Ariza has 10p on 4-5 FG, Harden 5p-4a.
How much do the Rockets miss Dwight Howard? Pistons with 22 points in paint in first quarter. Most they've allowed in a game is 66.
Pistons dominating Rockets defense. Size of Drummond, Monroe causing fits, opening up opportunities all over.
Boos for Josh Smith begin moment D-Mo picks up his second foul and Smith heads to scorers' table. Strong now that he's in.
Tonight will be very tough. Back2back going against Stan Van Gundy's very well coached team. We will have to execute on both ends
Josh Smith heads to Detroit with 18p, 6r and 15p, 10r in his past 2 gms. Of Pistons said, "They’re friends. I don’t have anything to prove."
Harden, who was 4 of 21, said to blame him. “I definitely slowed things up, especially in that second half. I’ll take the blame for it.”
McHale on Rockets in 2nd half: "We quit moving the ball, quit moving our bodies. Just played hideous offensive basketball for 27 minutes."
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.
Second straight game where Harden made a really bad decision on a foul late. 90-87 Rockets, 27 sec left.
Josh Smith nails two big free throws. He's got 15 pts, 10 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block off the bench. 88-81 HOU, 51.6 sec left.
Celtics call timeout, hopefully to set up another Jared Sullinger three-point attempt. Rockets clinging to an 86-81 lead, 1:02 left.
