David Hardisty

Jeremy Lin going against your team is so much more fun to watch than Jeremy Lin on your team. 42-23 Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Capela misses an alley oop, but I still think he'll get those first NBA points tonight.

David Hardisty

30-15 Rockets after one. James Harden in the first quarter: 5-6 FG, 13 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists (but 4 turnovers).

David Hardisty

Clint Capela can't miss in the D-League, can't make anything in the NBA. Great start for Rockets though, now up 30-15.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden drove nearly to the rim, but chose to set up Capela instead. The rook lost the ball a Harden turnover.

Jonathan Feigen

Capela fouled on his first time down the floor. Misses both fts, the second badly. Still think he'll have a career high scoring night.

Jenny Dial Creech

Early Clint Capela sighting!

Jonathan Feigen

Clint Capela checks in for Dorsey. (Motiejunas had two early fouls.)

Jonathan Feigen

With two minutes left in 1st quarter, Harden has scored or set up 23 of the Rockets 27 points. Has 13p, 4a.

Jonathan Feigen

Jeremy Lin checks in to a good round of applause. Matched up with the guy that replaced him in Rockets rotation, Jason Terry.

Jonathan Feigen

Floyd Mayweather and many very large people walking with him just arrived.

Jonathan Feigen

Lin did not play at all on Friday, his first healthy scratch since the game before Linsanity began. Just guessing this DN POd a few fans.

Jonathan Feigen

Byron Scott, when asked if Lin would play, said he has an idea about his rotation, but would determine who plays off bench during the game.

Jonathan Feigen

As expected, Joey Dorsey to start with Dwight Howard out,

Jonathan Feigen

No Kobe. No Dwight. But Clint Capela us here.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard officially ruled out tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Byron Scott is so late I'm wondering if Jeremy is giving him a DNC-player's decision.

James Harden

Honored to be a part of Coach K’s 1,000 wins! Congrats to such an amazing coach & man! #CoachK1K #history #USAB http://t.co/7h2CNPc6wk

Rockets recalling rookie Clint Capela from D-league blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard a 'game-time decision' for Sunday's showdown with Lakers blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones remains out, but when I asked about a Wed. return, McHale did not rule it out. Said "sooner than later" and "within a week."

Jonathan Feigen

Clint Capela, who was recalled from D-League today, was not in LA in time for Rockets shootaround, but he is expected to be here tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard said he was "sad" to learn of Kobe Bryant's injury. Harden used the same word, "sad," and called Bryant "my favorite player."

Howard Chen

A lil late on this cuz I was at church service, but the #Rockets have recalled @Clint Capela from @RGVVipers.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard said he expects to be out tonight. Sounds confident about Wednesday. "I'll be fine. "

Jonathan Feigen

McHale:"I'm not hopeful for Dwight tonight."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard did not participate in shootaround with sprained right ankle. He's a game-time decision.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have recalled Clint Capella from the RGV Vipers, their D-League affiliate.

Donatas Motiejunas

Dwight Howard has a right ankle sprain and is questionable tomorrow against the Lakers.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets center Dwight Howard is listed as questionable to play against the Lakers on Sunday with a sprained right ankle.

Howard Chen

Jonathan Feigen

In clutch situations, (up or down by 5 or fewer w/ 5 or fewer mins left), Harden ave. league leading 4.7p, making 48.9 %, 55.6 % of his 3s.

Jonathan Feigen

In here: blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @don_dougan: @Jonathan Feigen Would love to see an article on his clutch stats. Def among league leaders.

Jonathan Feigen

Game-winner was Harden's 2nd career buzzer beater, both v Suns, the 1st to actually go in. (The first was on Jermaine O'Neal's goaltending.)

Jonathan Feigen

Howard on his ankle: “It feels a little better. We’ll see how it feels tmrw. My foot just twisted. I couldn't put any pressure on it."

Jonathan Feigen

PatBeverley: "That’s James Harden doing his thing. The shots he makes nothing surprises you. In my eyes he’s the best player in the league."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard said he's already feeling better. Obviously too soon to know about Sunday.

Jonathan Feigen

Actually, right after I typed that, Howard is out of the boot and singing.

David Hardisty

Full Video: The incredible buzzer-beater by @James Harden to beat the Suns in Phoenix. bit.ly/1CMkoWR http://t.co/nkzeHFtuFX

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard in a walking boot. McHale was unsure about whether Howard will be out.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden at the buzzer. Jumper from 20 feet. Rockets 113-111.

David Hardisty

HARDEN AT THE BUZZER! GAME OVER!!!!

David Hardisty

Bad, bad foul by Joey Dorsey, and the Phoenix Suns have tied it. Rockets ball, 16.6 sec left.

Jonathan Feigen

Morris rolls in his free throw. Tie game with 16.6 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets did everything possible to take away 3-pointers. Instead, Dorsey fouled Markieff Morris as he put in a layup.

David Hardisty

James Harden makes a pair of free throws, putting the Rockets up three with 26 ticks left.

Jonathan Feigen

Suns quickly put Harden on the line. He made 1 of previous two. Is 12 of 15 for the night.

David Hardisty

The Rockets led 102-86 with 6:11 left. It's now 109-108 Houston with 27.2 sec left. Not the first time this has happened late.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets were taking away the 3-point line, allowing Bledsoe to get to rim. He missed but Marcus Morris put in rebound. One-pt gm, 27.2 left.

David Hardisty

Suns went on a 14-2 run before the Rockets finally got a basket by Harden (28 points). Rockets now lead 106-100, 1:25 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets had their largest lead of the game midway through the fourth. Suns ansewer with a 9-0 run, are back with 7 with 4:17 left.

David Hardisty

This has been Donatas Motiejunas' quarter: He's 4-4 from the field for 8 points and a steal in the period. 102-88 Rockets, 5:46 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Jason Terry gives Papanikolaou a pep talk and a smack on the butt. McHale sticking with him for a few more minutes.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden had an open 3. Passed instead to a wide open Papanikolaou to try to get him going. Didn't work. Next time down, set up Ariza instead.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets will take a 10-point lead into fourth. Harden with 7a in the third. Still think Rockets will need something from Motiejunas inside.

David Hardisty

Rockets take a 10-point lead to the fourth, up 87-77. Harden has 24, 9 assists, 5 boards. Brewer, JSmith each with 14 off the bench.

Jonathan Feigen

Josh Smith up to six turnovers. Rest of the Rockets with five.

Jonathan Feigen

Pat Beverley is having one of his best games in awhile. Besides 12 points and four assists, strong defense against outstanding Suns guards.

David Hardisty

Despite the early turnovers, Josh Smith is having a strong game. He's now 7-10 from the field for 14 points.

Jonathan Feigen

Dragic bumped official Scott Wall. Automatic T. Dragic takes a seat.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets give up three layups in a little over a minute. McHale gets an early time out. Rockets seem to be missing some rim protection.

Jonathan Feigen

Tucker picked up a T in first minute of the half and Hornacek benched him. Marcus Morris matched up with Harden.

David Hardisty

Video: James Harden ends the half by working over PJ Tucker. bit.ly/1t9xP3t http://t.co/5fFtPsR4b5

Jonathan Feigen

Dragic visits with Motiejunas and now Harden at halftime. Working on Rockets' goal of all lefty lineup?

Jonathan Feigen

Also, for your halftime enjoyment, caught up with Goran Dragic about free agency this summer when he opts out. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Wrote pregame about how important addition of Brewer is vs. teams like Suns. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… He has 10p in 11 minutes.

David Hardisty

James Harden just completely smoked PJ Tucker with a crossover, threw down a dunk and landed on Tucker's back. 60-52 Rockets at half.

Jonathan Feigen

P.J. Tucker's defense is no joke, but Harden burned him badly to end the half with a drive and dunk. Harden with 18. Rockets up 60-52.

David Hardisty

Eric Bledsoe is considered a good defender, so how soon before we see *his* "Defensive Juggernaut" video? vine.co/v/OIEOKV2E5vD

Jonathan Feigen

At first, just take a few mins from a few guys. See how goes. MT @pastoral_impact: @Jonathan Feigen does Josh Smith sit when Jones returns?

Jonathan Feigen

With Josh Smith collecting turnovers, Motiejunas in foul trouble, Papanikolaou checks in at power forward. Matched up with Tucker.

David Hardisty

This was not a dead ball, but Trevor Ariza walks around like it is. Can't have these turnovers. vine.co/v/OIEqZ1dhbJi

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have not offered any timetable, but that's my guess. RT @Rockets_AR: @Jonathan Feigen next week?

Jonathan Feigen

Also, Harden is quite clean shaven. RT @spacecity2013: @Jonathan Feigen The remaining squad is still better off without Disappointments12

Jonathan Feigen

This is shaping up as a night McHale would love to point at Terrence Jones and tell him to get in there. Likely soon.
