As I'm watching Romo, I'm keeping in mind this is a version of him that's probably with a million painkillers in his blood.
And then that last sequence of plays happens. Delay of game (!!!) and then the sack. No points on the drive instead of at least 3.
Gutsy play call. McCoy gets it done.
Hmmmm something tells me Colt might not know the plays 100% just yet...
Scott’s take on Dwight/Kobe clash:"Kobe is a real serious guy.He wants to win championships.I don’t know if Dwight’s that serious about it."
Byron Scott on Kobe: "I still think he can dunk on people...an alley-oop? We haven’t tried that in practice yet."
Byron Scott at practice today: “I’m sure (Dwight Howard) would like to come out here and play and beat the crap out of us."
As for the next moves, the contract options of Motiejunas and Jones will be picked up, as we reported early in camp, but not until Thursday.
Rockets made final cuts - Jeff Adrien, Ish Smith, Robert Covington and Earl Clark.
Final two cuts of Jeff Adrien & Ish Smith show how important preseason can be as Tarik Black's strong play bumped one of them off roster.
Smith had been ahead of Isaiah Canaan, but Canaan came on well in past 2 weeks and was always thought to have greater long-term potential.
With Rockets final cuts, Tarik Black went from a training camp invitee with a non-guaranteed contract to making team, likely as b/up center.
The Rockets cut roster to 15 by waiting Jeff Adrien and Ish Smith, along with the other already clear cuts, Covington, Clark, Richmond.
And now there's pandemonium in San Francisco. That hustle. That energy.
Man Rick wasn't going in this episode!! But nxt week tho
Just heard about Oscar Taveras. Horribly tragic news.
When I mentioned Beverley to Lin, he smiled. “It’s going to be fun. That’s the thing. It’s going to be fun to compete with him again."
Lin said getting traded was hard. When summer started, he really didn’t expect it. He was told there was a small chance he would be traded.
Terry on opener: "What better way to start it off than in Staples against the Lakers. When you play against (LA), it’s always a big game.”
Lin: "I have a great relationship with so many guys over there. In no way am I like...I hate my former teammates or coaches."
See my Texans & Patriots handled business today!!
When prompted to do a little Rockets trash-talking, Lin grinned and said he really liked the Rockets and thinks they have a great team.
Lin talked was asked about having to play 30-40 minutes on Tuesday night. He said, “I’m 26. I can play 48.” In other words, he feels fine.
Lin was asked if he got a fair shake in Houston. He took a long pause and said “I don’t know. I’ll have to think about that."
Lin encouraged reporters at practice to write headlines for Tuesday’s opener as Dwight vs. Kobe. He doesn’t want it to be about him vs. Rox.
I talked to Jeremy Lin for a few minutes today - he seems really happy and at ease in LA.
Pat Beverley on Jeremy Lin: "J-Lin is a person I was honored to have as a teammate, that I looked up to while he he was here."
With Lin named LA starter Tue, Beverley knows Lin's game well, but said Lin knows his, too. "He taught me offense, where to get my shots."
Unclear how sharp Howard can be after playing just 3 preseason games. He said Sat he'd be ready to play. Was unavailable for comment Sunday.
Dwight went through Sunday practice, but playing catch up. McHale: “He’s going to have to be sharp, but it (time out) does affect you."
Just leaving lakers practice- Jeremy Lin is supposed to start Tuesday in the opener against the Rockets.
Bears might be losing by a ton, but that Martellus Bennett TD catch was incredible.
Now hearing those last two Rockets cuts likely pushed back until tomorrow. Everyone that's been here at practice today.
The Jets are SO bad right now.
Dat catch by Theo Riddick doe
Waking up and finding NFL football on before noon's like added bonus to the noon games, then the 2nd set, then Sunday Night Football. =)
And credit the Buckeyes and JT Barrett for responding quickly & methodically to tie this again. More OT.
Wow. This Penn State team. Overcoming a 1st-down holding call in OT, drive it in for the TD. Now it's your turn, Buckeyes.
Penn State totally wasted a 1st down play by spiking the ball with the clock stopped. We'll see if that comes back to haunt them.
Howard did go through Rockets practice today. They had a practice prior to the fan fest.
Dwight Howard wouldn't say how he got his arm laceration but did say that it wasn't serious and that he would be ready for season.
Dwight Howard just called Jason Terry 'the oldest guy in the league right now.' 'He used to be the jet but now he is a propeller plane.'
It's open practice day at the Toyota Center. Fans entering the arena right now to see the Rockets.
