Twitter man... you state what is happening right in front of you, and somehow that makes you public enemy No. 1.

When you block a layup attempt after it has hit the backboard, it's called goaltending. vine.co/v/O0H7MnV3u6Q

Jonathan Feigen

Hawks really pick up the defense. Terrific as their ball movement offense is, weird their D often overlooked as huge part of their success.

Jenny Dial Creech

The Hawks right back in this one-Rockets lead 65-58 and the Hawks are clawing away.

Jenny Dial Creech

Second half underway in Atlanta.

Howard Chen

Elkins DT also has offers from list inc #TCU, #Mizzou MT @Ross_Blacklock: Offered by #Kansas #AGTG #RockC

If the Rockets follow up that 1st half with a 2nd half like that, will James "Wally Pip" Harden get starting job back tomorrow vs. Memphis?

Jenny Dial Creech

Atlanta will make adjustments without a doubt, so the Rockets are going to have to keep it up. Can’t get too excited about this lead.

Jenny Dial Creech

Seriously, though, Rockets responding well to being without James Harden. Every player is pulling his weight.

Jenny Dial Creech

So far, the Rockets are doing just fine without that dude with the beard...

Howard Chen

Unreal 1st half by the #Rockets against the Hawks. 59-45. Without Harden. Did everybody grow beards or what?!?

Jenny Dial Creech

Terrence Jones has been very active tonight- he has 14 points, six rebounds tonight. Jason Terry has 12 pts and is 3/4 on 3-pointers.

David Hardisty

As we all expected, the Rockets, without Harden & Howard, take a 14-point halftime lead on the road against the best team in the NBA.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the 1st half in Atlanta- #Rockets 59, #Hawks 45

David Hardisty

Just a reminder: Daryl Morey got Terrence Jones in a trade straight up for Chase Budinger.

Jenny Dial Creech

Jason Terry heating up… back to back shots for him. He has 12.

Jenny Dial Creech

It smells like cinnamon rolls where I am sitting. It’s intoxicating.

Jenny Dial Creech

Terrence Jones up to 7 points, 5 rebounds. He has a lot of energy tonight- Rockets will need him to maintain that throughout this one.

Jenny Dial Creech

The Hawks are on a 10-3 run to start the second.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the 1st, #Rockets up 31-22 on the #Hawks. They talked about wanting a lot of ball movement, and they are getting it.

Jenny Dial Creech

D-Mo doing lots of little things well tonight. Has six points, three assists, has drawn two charges.

Jonathan Feigen

Not sure how those two charges drawn by Motiejunas differ from the blocking foul called on him Sunday vs. LeBron James. Unless...

David Hardisty

Really impressed with how Rockets have come out, up 29-17 in Atlanta. Great start for D-Mo, who has 3 assists already (season-high is 4).

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets up 18-17 midway through the first quarter. As expected, pace is high in this one. D-Mo 5 points, Ariza, Brewer 4 each for Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets players have combined to miss 122 games w injuries, suspension. Howard could miss as many as the 37 he missed in rest of career.

Howard Chen

Jonathan Feigen

Was going to suggest it is a tough break for Cavs, too. Harden did not get flagrant-2, ejection; now out vs. Hawks. But Atl leads by 11 gms.

I asked Kevin McHale who would start in place of James Harden tonight- he told me I could come to the game tonight and find out.

Strange but true: Rockets have a better winning percentage this year without Dwight Howard (19-8, .704) than they do with him (22-10, .688)

Another thought on Dre: I do not fault him at all for asking out once told of a reduced role. On this team? C'mon, man!!! FANTASTIC 12 yrs.

Howard Chen

Btw as far as Dre goes, if teams know #Texans will waive him if trade can't be worked out, doesn't that reduce trade leverage big-time?

Don't think Harden aimed for the King's jewels, but that was a violation of some sort. No surprise something was handed down.

Jonathan Feigen

Guessing McHale saw suspension coming better than saw the incident. Asked about it today w/ time to see video said, “I don’t have any idea.”

NBA ruling that foul should have been a flagrant-2 not insignificant. If ruled that way at the time, Harden would have been ejected in 3rd.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets game tomorrow in Atlanta will be first Harden has missed this season.

Jenny Dial Creech

The NBA has suspended James Harden for one game- will serve suspension tomorrow against Atlanta.

David Hardisty

NBA announces James Harden has been suspended one game for kicking LeBron James. Will be tough sledding tomorrow in Atlanta.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden's foul -- as shown here nba.com/video/channels… -- was upgraded to a flagrant-2.

Jonathan Feigen

James Harden suspended for tomorrow's game at Atlanta for kicking LeBron James.

Jonathan Feigen

Exchange with Beverley not in last 2 minutes. RT @jsm020: @Jonathan Feigen and what about lebron going at both bev and harden?

Jonathan Feigen

Only other play in league's initial Two Minute Report ruled incorrect, James/Harden locked up off ball. No call should have been double foul

Jonathan Feigen

NBA rules the square dancing no-call play with Harden and James on Sunday should have been offensive on Harden, subsequent foul on James.

Jonathan Feigen

James Harden added to the Rockets injury report with a bruised left shoulder. He's probable for Tuesday, well, at least with the shoulder.

Rockets 5-0 in OT games, 13-2 in games decided by 5 or fewer points and 8-0 when TJones starts.

McHale on the no-call late when Harden, LeBron got tangled up: "It looked like square dancing to me. Swing your partner round and round."

Rockets no doubt regret asking Beverley on the mic if the fans helped tonight: "No doubt. We have the best f***ing fans in the world!"

David Hardisty

Rockets complete the homestand with a perfect 5-0 record. This is the first Rocket sweep of a 5+ game homestand since February of 2009.

Jonathan Feigen

You knew the ball would be in James' hands for final shot. James Jones can't get shot off. Rockets 105-103, sweep Cavs, 5-game homestand.

MVP watch - LeBron had 37 points, 8 rebs, 4 assists - horrible at foul line 3/11. Harden 33 pts, 8 rebounds, 5 assts.

It's over. It's over. #Rockets beat the Cavs. Wow that was a good game.

FINAL: Rockets 105, Cavs 103. GREAT game, HUGE win! Cavs had won 18 of last 20 games w/ LeBron. Harden 33p-8r-5a, TJones 19p-7r.
