Jonathan Feigen

Play Rockets ran a lot like the play I believe Blazers wanted to run with Harden in the Aldridge role. Lillard, obviously, went another way.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets wanted the lob to Ariza, but Hollins kept Beverley from seeing anything. Harden got his shot off, but no good. Overtime.

David Hardisty

Harden misses and we're going to overtime.

Daryl Morey

I know you can get a shot off in this amount of time

Jonathan Feigen

Not a bad look. Gay misses from 18 feet. Rockets have .9 left to shoot for the win. They know it has been known to happen that fast.

David Hardisty

Rudy Gay misses and the Rockets call timeout with (get this) 0.9 seconds left.

David Hardisty

Harden hits a long-range bomb to tie the game. vine.co/v/O6e0Fn26bzl

David Hardisty

With Rockets down 5, Ariza hits a pair of FTs then Harden hits a BOMB and it's all tied up! 20.5 ticks left.

David Hardisty

James Harden can go right too. His cross and slam ties the game.

Jonathan Feigen

Playing with five fouls, Motiejunas draws a charge. That's turnover No. 22 for Kings, key to Rockets being within 2.

Howard Chen

Ok. That alley oop from Darren Collison with the Derrick Williams finish was pretty nice.

Howard Chen

Troy Daniels gives the Rockets their first lead of the game. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Game tied for first time since opening seconds.

Jonathan Feigen

Joey Dorsey with a career-high five steals. And against his (briefly) former team.

David Hardisty

Yes, @irocket3 just abused Ramon Sessions. vine.co/v/O6ejbUih2HI

Howard Chen

Love that a buncha people just tweeted NICK JOHNSON in caps at the same time. THAT DESERVED IT. #BOOMSHAKALAKA #REDNATION

Jonathan Feigen

Game hanging in the balance with Rockets down 8, James Harden starts the fourth quarter at power forward. Has already played 32 minutes.

David Hardisty

Exactly. That this game is winnable is a miracle, considering how they've shot. RT @adamclanton: I cannot believe Houston is only down by 8.

Howard Chen

James Harden on the fastbreak is like a train that cannot and will not be derailed. Just went thru 2 defenders for the hoop. #RedNation

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza's shooting slump is going on 17 games now. He's 1-9 tonight, 1-6 from three. Jason Terry also 1-7 from deep.

Jonathan Feigen

Besides obvious issues with players out, mins played by Rockets regulars has taken toll. Ariza, especially, has looked gassed. He's 1 of 9.

Jonathan Feigen

Daniels, hitting 23.5 percent of his 3s this season, promptly misses a corner 3.

David Hardisty

10-0 Kings run, all started since the Rudy Gay-Pat Beverley scuffle.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets try something different. Daniels checks in for Beverley. Rockets have not scored since cutting lead to 2, a 10-0 Sac run.

Jonathan Feigen

Yes. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… RT @michelletos: @Jonathan Feigen Heard from announcers on TNT Canaan might if possible be back w/ Howard. True?

Jonathan Feigen

Soon. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @timoneaux: I know no timetable and you're not the trainer but any guess on when Canaan will be back?

Jonathan Feigen

Beverley fouled Gay who shoved him up around the back of his neck. Beverley two-hand shoves back. Lots of good talk, too.

Howard Chen

Of course Beverley's a part of that...

David Hardisty

Black, Dorsey, D-Mo all with 4 fouls. It looks like McHale and Powell are unsure which one of them will go in first. http://t.co/glAq7LfSNx

Jonathan Feigen

And another, this time giving Motiejunas four. On a related note, Kevin Cutler is being paid by the whistle tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Predictably, Dorsey picks up his fourth. Kings already in bonus.

Jonathan Feigen

Black picked up two quick fouls, has to sit with four fouls. Dorsey in with three fouls. Next up? Uh. Capela for a hack a Reggie?

David Hardisty

James Harden making things happen right out of the gate. Rockets score 6 quick points in first 1:10 of 3Q. Timeout Sacramento.

Jonathan Feigen

Good catch. They did, still a season high RT @Jenny Dial Creech: @Jonathan Feigen didn't they score 37 in 1st quarter against Kings last time?

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets give up fast break layup with Kings going length of floor in 4.2 secs after made basket. Sac up, 46-36, season-low for Rockets half.

David Hardisty

REALLY poor close to the first half as Sacramento puts up 7 points in the final 43 seconds. Rockets have to feel fortunate down only 10.

Howard Chen

Wow. The speed of Collison to set up Reggie Evans to close the half. Kings up 46-36 on the #Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Dorsey absolutely clobbered Reggie Evans. Motiejunas called for the foul. Maybe he reached, but Rockets all reacted. Motiejunas second foul.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets might be tired in second half of a back-to-back, but these TNT time outs are long enough to take a nap.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings have featured videos of stars of their past during time outs. Now celebrating late, great Wayman Tisdale. Standing O for his family.

Howard Chen

Cardinals just win win win, no matter what. #AZvsSTL

David Hardisty

It's been this kind of game so far. vine.co/v/O6eujwhxxJ6

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have had Harden, Motiejunas, Beverley in against very shaky Sac bench, but start 2nd q 1 of 7. Started 1st 0 of 7 so have improved.

Howard Chen

Beverley. Fierce on the offensive glass there! #RedNation

David Hardisty

Rockets did not look energetic early, hitting just 6-21 shots to fall down by 10 heading to the 2Q. Beverley the only Rocket shooting >25%.

Jonathan Feigen

Perhaps Kings and Terry knew what they were doing when they agreed to part ways. Terry 2 of 11 in two days in NoCal. Shoots better in Texas.

Jonathan Feigen

After having to go small last night, Rockets have to play Dorsey and Black together vs. Kings. Working about as well.

David Hardisty

Jason Terry hits a jumper and eggs on the Sacramento crowd for more boos. vine.co/v/O6OYZI1aWvb

Jonathan Feigen

Terry hits an 18-footers and signals fans to boo him again. They obliged. "Terry sucks" chant grows louder.

David Hardisty

Kings fans booing Jason Terry just seems silly. I mean, who could ever possibly dislike Jason Terry?

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets playing w/ no energy offensively. Nothing moving quickly. Tons of shots forced late in shot clock. They are 2 of 13 through 8 mins.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings fans OK with Joey Dorsey, who also stopped by for awhile, however.

Jonathan Feigen

Loads of boos for Jason Terry, the never quite was Kings player. Even boos as he brings ball up.

Jonathan Feigen

Mayor KJ visits with Trainer KJ before the game, showing again that Keith Jones knows everybody.

Jonathan Feigen

Sacramento Kings warming up in "I can't breathe" t-shirts.

Fran Blinebury

If you saw Kyrie Irving land so awkwardly on that left knee, it's shocking that he's ready to go for the second half.

Jonathan Feigen

In addition to 5 Rockets out (Howard, Jones, Garcia, Papanikolaou, Canaan), Harden and Dorsey on injury report (back spasms) but will play.

Jonathan Feigen

Tired. McHale: "He's ready to go." MT @3rdxTheCharm: @Jonathan Feigen any word on how James feels tonight? Played a lot of mins in Oakland

Fran Blinebury

Kyrie Irving putting weight on left knee as he leaves court. Horrible looking landing after contesting Westbrook jumper.

Fran Blinebury

Cavs say they're not worried about LeBron's sore knee yet. tinyurl.com/lgqr327

Jonathan Feigen

Nope. Usually do, but changed plans because of storm. RT @CypressEd: @Jonathan Feigen @Amin Elhassan No stop at In and Out? #memoryofYao

Jonathan Feigen

Took the bus just ahead of the weather. RT @Amin Elhassan: @Jonathan Feigen Did the Rockets bus to Sacramento after last night or did they fly?

Fran Blinebury

David Blatt on LeBron: "I don't think we're looking at any serious situation. Just general soreness."

Fran Blinebury

LeBron James out tonight at OKC. Day to day

Dwight Howard

My man James Fisher got a serious dunk game!!! #Repost from @d12foundation --- #DwightHoward with 7… instagram.com/p/we8pL6Ki0f/

Crennel says Andrew Luck's evolution as a NFL QB is comparable to that of Troy Aikman and Peyton Manning. #goodcompany #Texans #Colts

Howard Chen

BOB on Boom Herron: I think the guy's done really well. Downhill runner, with the speed to get outside. #Texans #Colts

Howard Chen

O'Brien: Hilton's so quick, so he's hard to press. There's a reason Colts threw to him 19 times in a game. Gotta mix up looks #Texans #Colts

Howard Chen

O'Brien: day-to-day on Mercilus. Nothing new on Dre. Some tests tomorrow for Dre. Still in day-to-day mode. #Texans

O'Brien on Andrew Luck: This guy's a playmaker and the ultimate competitor. #Texans #Colts

I think only Canadians have done that, we would never consider MT @John Schuhmann I think a team has played 6-6 C.Hayes&J.Dorsey at "center"

In beautiful Martinez, Calif., known of course as hometown of Jeff, Stan Van Gundy. It's everything Jeff said. (I assume. I'm on the train.)

Jonathan Feigen

Or to put it another way, here's five thoughts on Rockets-Warriors while riding the rails to Sacramento. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Couldn't stay up late? How the Warriors came up large vs. Rockets when the teams went "small." blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Fran Blinebury

LeBron game time decision tonight in OKC. Soreness in knee

Jonathan Feigen

How brutally tough is the West. Rockets are 16-5 with 1-gm losing streak. Fell to 5th, a half-game ahead of SA and Dallas, with b-to-b tmrw.

Jonathan Feigen

To defend Barnes? Thompson? RT @azx568387508: @Jonathan Feigen Why Terry? Why not Black/Dorsey? What's wrong w/ McHale? I mean in last 6min

Jonathan Feigen

McHale: "We gave up 32 points in the fourth quarter. No one defended very well."

Jonathan Feigen

With the Warriors, when they go 'small ' they're really big. While GS spread floor and went to rim, length bothered Rockets on other end.

Howard Chen

Warriors now with 14 straight W's. Kings should be easier - have really struggled without Cousins. They lost to, um, the Lakers on Tuesday.

Jenny Dial Creech

That was a pretty impressive outing for Rockets despite the loss. You have to wonder how good this team could be in full health...

David Hardisty

FINAL: Warriors 105, Rockets 93. Valiant effort from an injured team, but game slipped away late. Harden puts up 34-8-4-4, D-Mo 18.

Howard Chen

Clint Capela sighting. Ok it's time to focus on Sacramento. #RedNation

David Hardisty

9-34 from long range a bit of a dagger for the Rockets tonight. Not many nights you'll see Jason Terry go 0-5 from there.

David Hardisty

Game slipping away from the Rockets, now down 9 with 2:45 left. Breakdown on both ends. Warriors playing strong defense.

Jonathan Feigen

Warriors have 20 points in the paint in the fourth quarter. Had 26 in first three quarters combined.

Jonathan Feigen

Warriors score on six-consecutive possessions, all on drives to lane. Rockets take 3s on 4 of 5 possessions in that stretch, a 13-3 GS run.

Howard Chen

That said, Klay's still getting his points...

Howard Chen

On a night where Klay Thompson has been off, Harrison Barnes has been so steady. 20pts now on 7-9 shooting, including 3-4 from distance.

Howard Chen

Most Valuable Beard.

That Eurostep in traffic was just beautiful. #Bearding #RedNation
