I spent the last several hours at Bluejack National - where course designer Tiger Woods popped in for a visit today.

Howard Chen

Good news, #RedNation... RT @Jonathan Feigen: Rockets guard Isaiah Canaan expected back Wednesday in Denver.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets guard Isaiah Canaan expected back Wednesday in Denver.

Howard Chen

Kinda dizzying to read the police accounts of the Slava Voynov domestic violence case on @nathanfenno's timeline. Intense.

Howard Chen

This is big RT @dallasnews: Stephen Jones says DeMarco Murray to have surgery on hand d-news.co/FVWRZ http://t.co/vyeyCDdsPj

David Hardisty

Congrats @James Harden on Western Conf Player of the Week. 34.0 pts, 7.3 assists, 7.0 rebounds, 2.7 steals, 1.0 blocks tends to get that.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden has been POW 6 times, tied w/ Yao Ming for third most in Rockets history. Tracy McGrady was POW 7 times; Hakeem Olajuwon 12 times.

Howard Chen

Some Harden stats for the week: Avg'd 34pts, 7.3 assists, 7 rebounds, 2.7 steals, 1 block. Is NBA's leading scorer for season. #RedNation

Howard Chen

BOOM. Or shall I say, BEARD. RT @LK_Comm: James Harden wins #WesternConference player of the week. #Rockets

Jonathan Feigen

John Wall the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Jonathan Feigen

James Harden wins Western Conference Player of the Week.

Howard Chen

Had some CSN Houston pride when watching "The U Part 2." Saw and heard @SteveBunin a ton!

Howard Chen

Excited to see Herman's imprint on the UH offense & QB's in particular. Unreal job done with #Buckeyes this year. #GoCoogs

Howard Chen

#GoCoogs RT @BruceFeldmanCFB: BREAKING #OhioState OC Tom Herman is expected to become the new head coach at #Houston, source told @FoxSports

Isaiah Canaan

Knocking out all this Christmas shopping!!

Howard Chen

The thing I dig about Mike Pereira's work: he's not afraid to disagree with the call on the field.

Howard Chen

Looking forward to seeing Harbaugh's postgame reply to that "roughing" call.

Howard Chen

Tom Savage outperformed Johnny Manziel without knowing he'd play today. #Texans

Isaiah Canaan

Good stop Texans now just gotta get in the Box on this Drive!!

Howard Chen

Whoa whoa whoa, Santana Moss.

Jonathan Feigen

After Rockets celebrate Howard's impressive return blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… 5 next day thoughts on Dwight, D-Mo, more blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Christmas ugly sweater party! :) Waiting for Santa Claus! ;) With Rockets staff :D Laukiam Kalėdų Senio!!! :)))) http://t.co/mkSeikEqwO

Rockets Power Dancers

ROCKETS GOT ANOTHER WIN LAST NIGHT!!!

Daryl Morey

OK, I have to admit it, I am pretty excited for @JManziel2 1st start today. I also hate the Bengals. Go Browns #woof

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard returns to lineup to help Rockets top Nuggets blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

David Hardisty

ICYMI: Everyone knew James Harden was 1 rebound away from a triple-double -- everyone, that is, except his teammate. bbs.clutchfans.net/showthread.php…

Howard Chen

Harden was pretty hilarious after "The Triple Double That Almost Wasn't" lol -> cbsloc.al/1wuwNgp #TroyDaniels #RedNation

Donatas Motiejunas

Big second quarter. Great win!!! Dwight is back! Next at Denver! #Rockets #Pursuit

Jonathan Feigen

Nope. Again, there is no timetable on his return. RT @ApocalypseYao: @Jonathan Feigen Any idea on when T. Jones could be back?

Jonathan Feigen

I would guess. He hoped for tonight. RT @Mdsnoc: @Jonathan Feigen who will be next player back from injury? Canaan?

Jonathan Feigen

That is tough to do. There are many big man coverages, especially in pick-and-roll, that guys that practice there mess up routinely.

Jonathan Feigen

Easy to overlook, but McHale said Trevor Ariza handled PF responsibilities just right in small lineup with no practiced at all at the four.

David Hardisty

Arron Afflalo on Houston's defense: "They have better personnel w/ Pat & Trevor & James has improved... They are a good defensive team."

David Hardisty

Dwight said injuries have been a "blessing in disguise" bc it "gave DMo a chance to get comfortable w/ his role & he's been playing great."

David Hardisty

Harden joked he almost tackled Troy Daniels out of bounds going for rebound 10. "Everybody in the arena knew what was going on but Troy."

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets were only team in the NBA that had not allowed an opponent to get 10 assists in a game until Ty Lawson finished with 10 tonight.

David Hardisty

Life is good right now for Houston Rockets fans -- Dwight Howard is back, James Harden is playing like an MVP and the team is now 18-5.

David Hardisty

Scoreboard has adjusted numerous times, but it's now giving a triple-double to @James Harden -- 24 points, 10 boards, 10 assists.

David Hardisty

Toyota Center crowd was extremely disappointed when Daniels knocked away 10th board from Harden. Only one in the building who didn't know.

Howard Chen

Harden gets that 10th board at the end for the triple double. Crowd was very aware of that lol. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Crowd now completely pulling for the triple double, cheers when final rebound at buzzer shows up on stats. Harden's triple double his 3rd.

David Hardisty

Daniels does it again!

David Hardisty

Troy Daniels steals Harden's 10th rebound. He'll probably hear about that one.

Howard Chen

One more rebound, James Harden. One more. #TripleDoubleAlert #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Harden went hard for his 10th rebound. Would have been 3rd career triple double. Tied up by Faried. Has until the next dead ball to get it.

David Hardisty

The New Big Three? Harden, Howard, Motiejunas have a combined 73 points tonight. Rockets up 106-93, 2:00 left.

Howard Chen

No-look from Harden to the dunking D-Mo. That was nice. #RedNation

David Hardisty

James Harden is now just one rebound away from a triple-double: 24 points, 10 assists, 9 rebounds.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with 24, Motiejunas 23, Howards 21. First time three Rockets topped 20 in a game this season.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard sits and the Nuggets offense comes alive. Denver with 12 points in two minutes since Howard went out. He's about to check back in.

David Hardisty

Dwight makes such a difference. Wilson Chandler stopped in his tracks inside when he saw Dwight. Nuggets end up missing, Bev hits a three.

Jonathan Feigen

Faried ran back to Nuggets bench. Looked Ok, but takes a seat.

Jonathan Feigen

Mozgov sits with five fouls and nine minutes still left. Hickson on Dwight Howard. Howard w/ 19p, 11r in 25 minutes, likely to sit soon too.

Howard Chen

No, Mozgov. You can't stop Dwight Howard. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Nurkic fouls out. Mozgov checks in with 4. Faried in locker room. Would put Arthur or Hickson on Dwight if Mozgov fouls out.

Jonathan Feigen

Motiejunas with a career-high 23p going into 4th. He's 10 of 18 after just missing from halfcourt at the buzzer. Rockets up by a shaky 7.

David Hardisty

New scoring career-high for @Donatas Motiejunas - 23 points.

Jonathan Feigen

With Rockets in a zone, Nuggets misfiring. But Rockets struggling to control rebounds. Denver 9 2nd chance points in quarter.

Howard Chen

The Nuggets started the game shooting 12-20 (60%). They're 12-48 (25%) since that time. #RedNation

David Hardisty

Shot of Dwight Howard playing with gauze in his nose & blood on his jersey. He's got 16 points, 10 boards, 3 blocks. http://t.co/Ic9fQUhsKl

Jonathan Feigen

Kenneth Faried struggles to his feet after a Dorsey foul to stop a break. Faried missed 2 games with a lower back strain.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard gets his double-double in 22 minutes with rebound No. 10 tonight No. 10,000 in his career.

Howard Chen

This decommitment is rather huge in the recruiting world. No longer a #GunsUp commit. #txhsfb RT @Jarrett_Stidham: http://t.co/oxXp4MQoi6

Howard Chen

Joey Dorsey has 7 rebounds in about 10 minutes. Imagine that over a full game. Active as all heck. #RedNation

Howard Chen

Possible triple double soon? Harden has 17pts, 7rebs, 9 assists at the 4:20 mark of the 3Q. #Rednation

Howard Chen

Dwight Howard double double in his 1st game back. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight has to plug up a bloody nose. Whole lot of talking going on, now with Nate Robinson and Beverley. Before with Afflalo and Beverley.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets held Denver, one of leagues fastest teams, to 2 fast break points in 1st half. Taking 21 fts in a half will tend to slow a break.

Howard Chen

After the Nuggets shot 60% in the 1st quarter, the Rockets' D clamped down, forcing DEN into 29.2% shooting in the 2nd. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets shoot 63.2 % in first quarter; Rockets 61.1 % in second quarter. Rockets go from down 14 to up 54-48 at half.

Howard Chen

The Rockets outscored the Nuggets 33-17 in the 2nd quarter. Lead 54-48 at the half. Harden, D-Mo, Howard all in double figures. #RedNation

David Hardisty

HALF: Rockets 54, Nuggets 48. Rockets go on a 28-8 run over final 7:33 of half. Harden 14p-8a, D-Mo 13p, Howard 10p.

Howard Chen

Loud chants of "MVP" at Toyota Center as Harden steps to the line to complete the 3-point play the Harden way. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with strong right-handed finish through Afflalo foul and the MVP chant grows louder. He has 14p, 8a in half.

Jonathan Feigen

D-Mo in double figures scoring for 7th consecutive game. Previous longest streak was three. Crowd chants MIP when goes to line (not really.)

Howard Chen

In this 2nd quarter alone so far, D-Mo has 13 points to match the Nuggets' team total of 13 points. #RedNation

David Hardisty

Harden just got the TC to erupt, throwing an over-the-shoulder lob past two defenders to Dwight for the alleyoop. 7 assists for Harden.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden is 1 of 8, but he still has nine points and seven assists with 2 1/2 left in half.

David Hardisty

This is a 19-4 Rockets run that has completely changed the game. 11 of those points were scored by D-Mo. 45-44 Rockets, 3:06 2Q.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight is 4 of 1o from the line, but he might foul out everybody taller over 6-7. Rockets should keep going to him to pile up the fouls.

David Hardisty

With the Rockets down 14 and showing no ability to score, Donatas Motiejunas has run off 7 straight points.

Jonathan Feigen

D-Mo outplaying Timo (actually, he's matched up with Faried, but I wanted to write that.) He's scored Rockets past 7 pts, cutting lead to 7.

Howard Chen

I think I like this D-Mo matchup against Faried. Height advantage with the footwork.

Howard Chen

Kenneth Faried gonna Kenneth Faried. #DENvsHOU

Howard Chen

Nuggets had gotten the ball back after their shot attempt at the 24sec buzzer grazed net and then hit a shot with 00.8 seconds left.

Jonathan Feigen

I'm thinking Harden is feeling the 88 minutes he played in the back-to-back. He's 1 of 8. Rockets 6 of 26, trail 32-21 after technical FT.
