Judge ruling due next week. MT @dgreen5630: @Jonathan Feigen any word on when root will take over? Killing me to not watch Rockets for 2 yrs

Jonathan Feigen

Good one. I bet Fish still booed in TC. RT @JoseWorldPeace: @Jonathan Feigen DFish and Scola. I cringe every time I watch game 2 highlights.

Jonathan Feigen

Yeah, does not belong with the other exchanges. RT @IAmLSavage: @Jonathan Feigen Wasn't a fight either. More of an ambush. #stillmad

Jonathan Feigen

Kobe-Dwight far from first between Rockets, Lakers. (Kermit Washington punch of Rudy T too serious for this list.) blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

James Harden

S/O to @Kevin Durant for being my ears when I didn't have eyes 28 stories up. Have ya'll seen #TheBlindfold? youtube.com/watch?v=1WGUAX…

David Hardisty

According to TMZ, both @James Harden & @Trevor Ariza visited Julius Randle in the hospital. Classy move. tmz.com/2014/10/29/jam…

Jonathan Feigen

Yes. RT @Disciple2123: @Jonathan Feigen Will the Rockets game tonight be on CSN?

History between Howard and Bryant comes to a head in opener blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jenny Dial Creech

Will miss the LA media- @Mike Bresnahan @Mark Medina @Bill Oram … made me feel welcome in their territory this week. See you in Nov!

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight, Rockets get best of Kobe, Lakers in season opener blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jenny Dial Creech

Well, the NBA season started with a bang I’d say… Lakers/Rockets had lots of drama, Spurs/Mavs had quite the finish.

Jenny Dial Creech

I think there was obviously some sarcasm from Kobe on Dwight, but I do think he also just has a sense of humor about it all.

Jonathan Feigen

One more Dwight: "There's no need to go into it. We won the gm. It's about basketball. It's over. It's nothing. I'm not even focused on it."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight finally, "What do you want me to say because I'm not going to give you nothing. That's stupid. We won the game. It's over with."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight went on to talk about Ariza, Harden, Beverley, Jones. On the altercation: "It's a great start to the season. We got the win."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight on altercation with Kobe: "I’m just happy we won the game. We came out as a team tonight."

Jenny Dial Creech

Kobe on Dwight: "You can’t help but like him, he’s a teddy bear. I really mean that. He is a really nice kid."

Jonathan Feigen

Kind of. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @Emflo281: @Jonathan Feigen Saw Josh Powell in a suit and tie with Rox, is he part of the coaching staff?

Jenny Dial Creech

'I'm coming off an Achilles injury and I'm old as shit... But I'm really feeling fine.' -Kobe Bryant

Jenny Dial Creech

Kobe says he actually does like Dwight... Says you can't help but like him.

Jenny Dial Creech

Kobe said the elbows, the trash talking is all part of the game. He grinned about it.

Jenny Dial Creech

Asked what Dwight said to Kobe, Kobe replied: 'blah blah blah blah blah... And he heard the same from me.'

Jenny Dial Creech

Kobe told Randle to just keep his spirits up.

Jenny Dial Creech

'They don't like each other.' -Byron Scott's take on the Dwight/Kobe altercation.

Jenny Dial Creech

'It is heartbreaking.' -Scott on Randle

Jenny Dial Creech

We weren't thinking about basketball for the last 3 or 4 minutes. We were thinking about Julius. -Byron Scott

Howard Chen

K time for some zzz's. @SportsRadio610 in the morn 7am-7:30 with @LopezOnSports. Tune in, call in, #RedNation.

Howard Chen

Rockets win it. That was expected, but still nice. #RedNation

David Hardisty

Harden pops off for 32 in 31min as Rockets crush Kobe, Lakers 108-90. Ariza (16p), TJones (16p-13r) big. Rockets shut down Jeremy Lin.

Jenny Dial Creech

That’s a wrap- #Rockets win their season opener against the #Lakers 108-90

Jenny Dial Creech

A Lakers fan is trying to taunt Dwight Howard on the bench. Dwight just smiled and threw him a peace sign.

Jenny Dial Creech

I wonder if @adamlevine is one of the fans who left this game early. I was thinking about stopping and saying hi.

Jenny Dial Creech

The Lakers did not need another injury.

Howard Chen

Gotta feel horribly for Randle here. A broken leg? I'm surprised he wasn't screaming in pain.

David Hardisty

Hate to see this happen to Julius Randle. Great prospect -- he's the one high-ceiling building block the Lakers have. http://t.co/GIpiZJH8hb

Jenny Dial Creech

Not that it’s ok for anyone to get hurt, but Randle is so young. Hate this.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets and Lakers all standing around Lakers… I think this is bad.

Jonathan Feigen

Julius Randle has been down under Lakers basket after his foot buckled on a drive. Stretcher now out on the floor.

Jenny Dial Creech

Stretcher coming out for Randle. Hate to see this.

Jenny Dial Creech

I need to see videos of the Kobe-Dwight altercation. Let’s do some lipreading.

Jonathan Feigen

Lip reading some of the vines, it appears Howard said, "I know you." Kobe said, "Try me." Kobe offered a "soft" in there, too.

Jonathan Feigen

Kobe checks out and I imagine 19,000 close friend will soon follow.

Jenny Dial Creech

Dangit tweetdeck! Stop trying to change Ariza to Aria. I mean what I say!!

Jenny Dial Creech

Ariza and Kobe talking and sharing a laugh. Ariza the peacemaker.

Howard Chen

Dwight. The free throws?!? He can hit em! #doyoubelieveinmiracles

Jonathan Feigen

And Tarik Black checks in for Howard, who will now play with the crowd behind the Rockets bench for awhile.

Jenny Dial Creech

Personal foul on Kobe, flagrant 1 on Dwight- double technicals. I need a drink.

Jonathan Feigen

After review, personal foul called on Kobe, flagrant-1 on Dwight, plus double technicals. They don't look at each other. Howard to line.

Jenny Dial Creech

Ariza telling Dwight to keep it together - he and Kobe still want to say some things to each other.

Jonathan Feigen

No replays at Staples Center. Weak.

Jonathan Feigen

Foul was called on Dwight. Pat Beverley, I kid you not, jumped in as a peace maker.

Jenny Dial Creech

They have been wanting to say some things for a couple years… this is why you shouldn’t let things build up, guys.

David Hardisty

Kobe's serious. Dwight is laughing. Dwight is also up by 25 points.

Jonathan Feigen

Well, that was fun. Kobe, Howard jawing at each other after Howard swung an elbow following rebound. Kobe does not seem amused.

Jenny Dial Creech

Kobe and Dwight are having some words.

Howard Chen

If Beverley can show consistency from the outside this year, watch out, NBA. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Championship trophy, number won. RT @jcreed6484: @Jonathan Feigen Maybe I missed it, but what are the gold tags on the top/back of jerseys?

David Hardisty

Terrific ball movement on the fast break as a steal leads to a Terry-Ariza-Jones bucket and foul. Rockets now up up 95-70.

Howard Chen

That Rockets fastbreak was so beautiful with the ball movement and the finish. #TJones #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Troy Daniels fans rejoice. He checks in for Terry with 8:43 left. I'm putting over/under on made 3s at three.

Jenny Dial Creech

Just like the preseason… Troy Daniels coming in in the 4th quarter.

Howard Chen

Mayweather's in the house, eh? He must be there to watch JLin lol

Jonathan Feigen

Bryant, Boozer, Lin return. Rockets up 21, but still 9:53 left. Ariza back as soon as Kobe gets up.

Jonathan Feigen

Really surprised Kobe is sitting, but Lakers opening the season with four in five days. He's played 27 minutes with 10 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Fair point, but relatively key. RT @afanacct: @Jonathan Feigen are there any "key stretches" when playing a bottom 5 team up 20?

David Hardisty

He's knocking them down tonight. RT @bbbluuurrr: @Trevor Ariza i see you over there. nice pick up @Daryl Morey vine.co/v/OMXO6Z0QTKK

Jonathan Feigen

Key stretch here with Harden sitting. Dwight returns to start the fourth.

David Hardisty

This is the best Jeremy Lin has looked for the Rockets in at least 18 months. Harden has 32. Rockets up 85-69 heading to 4th..

Jenny Dial Creech

We head to the fourth quarter of the season opener- #Rockets lead #Lakers 85-69.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden up to 32 heading to fourth. Rockets record for an opener the 39 Hakeem scored in '88 and Francis had in '02. Harden had 37 in '12.

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden at 30 points. Record for Rockets season opener scoring is 39 (Francis 2002, Olajuwon 1988).

Jonathan Feigen

Harden wants to post up Ronnie Price on every possession he can. Lakers with Kobe, Johnson out too undersized on him.

Jenny Dial Creech

They just showed Adam Levine on the big screen bobbing his head to a Maroon 5 song.

Howard Chen

Harden played some D!!! Obv didn't want JLin to school him on national TV LOL

Jonathan Feigen

OK, let's get this out of the way. Dorsey, Garcia, Daniels and Canaan are here, but not currently in the Rockets rotation, unlikely to play.

Jenny Dial Creech

So, Ariza is having a good debut with the Rockets - 5/7 3 pointers. 16 points.

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza outstanding tonight. 5-7 from downtown, now has 16 points.

Jonathan Feigen

Lin, invisible in the first half, has done a great job of breaking down the Rockets defense off the dribble in the third quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden had 37 in his first game with the Rockets. Does he get there tonight? Has 27 with 5:46 left in third.

Jenny Dial Creech

Kobe just picked up his fourth foul.

Jonathan Feigen

The Rockets are, however, hitting 100 percent of their shots in the second half. After nearly five minutes they are 1 of 1.

Jonathan Feigen

That whole Motiejunas thing did not work so well. He takes a seat. Tarik Black in at center.

Jonathan Feigen

Yes, outstanding. That pattern held only in the 33 games he missed. RT @AntiSocialHiker: @Jonathan Feigen Asik was very good as a defender

Howard Chen

JLin showin some fire after a zero in the first half. Good things happen for him when he has that aggression.

Jonathan Feigen

In four minutes, the Rockets are 1 of 6 from the line, have 6 TOs, 5 fouls and an offensive goaltending. And Dwight's on bench with 4 fouls.

Jenny Dial Creech

Well this isn’t a good run for the Rockets.. Lakers cut the lead to 9 points. And Jeremy Lin has a lot to do with that.

Howard Chen

Jeez D-Mo's free throw tries were so ugly.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets had three turnovers in the first half. They've had four in past 90 seconds.

Jonathan Feigen

See if this sounds familiar. Rockets starting center in foul trouble. Biggest guy on court (Boozer) goes to work. Story of past 3 seasons.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight picks up his fourth foul 67 seconds into the second half. This time, Motiejunas checks in for him.

Jenny Dial Creech

Howard just picked up his 4th foul - on Lin, who yesterday at practice said the best way to contain Howard was to get him in foul trouble.

Jonathan Feigen

Out. Sore back. Likely OK in a couple days. Not in rotation now, anyway. RT @PConchola_Music: @Jonathan Feigen what's up with Nick Johnson?
