Kevin McHale just said on 790-AM Houston he's liking what he's seeing from Clint Capela. He could get more PT vs Dallas.

Mark Cuban continues his fascination w/ Houston, calls Rockets "most one-dimensional team" and "not very good." bit.ly/1OOQyrO

Jonathan Feigen

No ties to be broken there. Still the 18th pick. Knicks 2nd round pick to Houston is the 32nd pick. twitter.com/BadAnimal/stat…

NBA tie-breakers make the Rockets' first-round pick the 27th of the draft. It goes to the Lakers in the Lin deal.

Jonathan Feigen

Mavs list Harris and Parsons as questionable. As mentioned yesterday, McDaniels added to Hou injury list (nondisplaced r. elbow fracture).

Even though it seems like a lot of bad in the world, #BreatheAgain is a movement that puts the good back in. wewillbreathe.com

Jason Terry was starting point guard for the Mavericks in 2005 when HOU-DAL met in first round. “It’s ironic that here I am 10 years later."

Calvin Watkins

Dwight Howard on what he learned from last year's playoffs: "Anything can happen in .9 seconds."

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets were confident Howard ready for the 32 or so mins they have planned. Will that be enough? Played 38.5 mpg vs. Portland last season.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale on Howard: "Last night he moved better, had better quickness, had better lateral movement, had better speed, better explosiveness.'

Jonathan Feigen

Of course, he always says that, but Rockets do need to defend Dallas pick-and-roll, should do some damage on offensive boards.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard on the key to first-round series vs. Dallas: "Paint. Dominate the paint."

Young @Tarik Black got a nice shout out from Coach McHale today. “You know, Tarik Black helped us win games earlier this year."

Kevin McHale on last yr playoffs: "If you look in the rear view mirror you run into stuff."

Jonathan Feigen

McHale on return to playoffs after last season's crushing loss: "If you look in the rear view mirror you run into stuff."

Calvin Watkins

McDaniels just walked past reporters with his arm in a sling.

Calvin Watkins

McDaniels wasn't going to get PT in postseason. Still he's added to the list.

Calvin Watkins

KJ McDaniels fractured his wrist in the game last night and could be lost for the season.

Calvin Watkins

Today the Rockets had an optional practice but everybody showed up. Team mostly viewed film.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets GM Daryl Morey: "We have big goals this year and getting ourselves in the right position was step one."

Jonathan Feigen

Obviously, McDaniels was not likely to play in the post-season. But it is remarkable. Rockets with injuries from the second to last games.

Jonathan Feigen

The beat goes on. Rockets w/ another injury in season-finale. K.J. McDaniels injured his wrist. Likely fractured. Likely out for playoffs.
