HoopsHype Houston Rockets twitter
Ima be honest, I liked the Seahawks...TILL TODAY!!! From this day forward I vow to despise them habitually.
Packers Fans are Candy Crushed right now!!
Wow did that just happen..
That was a decent game.
Aaron Rodgers and Richard Sherman are making my leg and arm hurt just watching them.
Guess I can officially take a break from writing about Rockets to put full attention on this game…been watching out of the corner of my eye.
Like I said!! Lynch is a PROBLEM!!!
I can't see the game...what's going on?
Kevin McHale: "We have to do a better job as coaches of getting on them, substituting earlier, whatever it takes.”
Rockets coach Kevin McHale said of Monday’s game vs. IND, "We have to play a lot better than we played last night, that’s for sure,”
It's not really enjoyable (unless you're a Packers fan) to see Russell Wilson struggle this badly. I wanted to see quality football!!!
Yoooo that play was Dope!!
No set date for Terrence Jones return, but last night, Coach McHale said he was in the “final stages” of recovery.
Lynch is a problem!!
Once again, Rockets forward Terrence Jones stayed after practice to work. He looks better each time I see him.
Anyway, back to basketball. The Rockets had a long film session and a practice today. They host Indiana tomorrow at 4:30.
Getting to Rockets practice during the Houston Marathon was far from fun...
Does anyone know what streets are still closed downtown right now?
The Rockets 28-13 record is two games better than midway through last season.
Halfway through season, Rockets right where ere when last regular-season ended, 4th in West with same record as team in 5th (Dallas).
At 32-6, Warriors have their best record through 38 games in franchise history.
Harden's right. Warriors are the No. 1 defensive team and are 4th offensively in pts allowed/scored per possession. They lead NBA in ppg.
How good were the Warriors? Harden said, "They're a really good team, especially offensively and defensively." So true.
Kevin McHale: “The third quarter was ridiculous. We couldn’t get a stop, we turned it over… we had no fire. We had nothing."
Trevor Ariza: "We did not play hard today. We did not give a good effort. We paid for it."
McHale: "We had nothing for them. It was so disappointing. 3rd Q was ridiculous. We couldn't get a stop. We had no fire. We had nothing."
Klay Thompson had a career-high five blocks tonight against the Rockets.
Rockets, Thunder, Warriors played 1 another in 2nd half of back-to-backs. Team playing 2nd game in as many nights, after losses, won all 3.
This is the 15th time the Warriors have had more than 30 assists in a game this year. They had 32 tonight.
Warriors finish up 131-106 rout of Rockets, scoring more points in a quarter, half and game than any team has against Rockets this season.
That’s a wrap, Golden State demolishes the Rockets 131-106.
FINAL: Warriors 131, Rockets 106. Harden locked up, 3-pt shooters misfiring, defense AWOL. Rockets run out of the building in 2nd half.
Didn’t even realize Brandon Rush was still playing… he just scored in this game.
The good/bad news (depending on how you look at it) - the Rockets have a chance for redemption when they play at Golden State on Wed.
Curry just had a no-look steal and bounce pass, all in one motion to a Barnes dunk. Play of the night.
There are an awful lot of Golden State fans left though judging by the cheers on that last score.
Warriors smack back with 7-0 run to take lead to game-high 23. It's clear the bench time with 5:07 left.
The fans in the Toyota Center are done… they are filing out en masse.
Warriors lead up to 23 now.
Rockets had shown some signs of life. Papanikolaou 3 and fast break slam. Beverley w/ consecutive steals. But down 16, Harden misses a 3.
Rockets, spurred by Papanikolaou, trying to make a comeback. They are down 110-94 with 6:34 to play.
Small sign of life from Rockets -- Harden missed an open three that could have cut it to 11, but no dice. Warriors call t/o to talk it over.
Harden scores two quick buckets to start the fourth, but then picks up his 5th foul. Still 10:16 left.
3rd quarter was a Rocket disaster. In final 8:23, GSW outscored Houston 32-14. They connected on 13-18 shots during that span. Defense gone.
Rockets were within four three minutes into the second half. The Warriors scored 32 points in final nine minutes of quarter. Lead up to 22.
Warriors 38 points in 3rd quarter most against the Rockets in a quarter this season. Rockets collapsed, but the defense missing all night.
End of the 3rd, Warriors 102, Rockets 80
McHale has Dorsey, Papanikolaou check in. Is he starting to clear his bench? Maybe not. Howard has to sit sometime and D-Mo has 4 fouls.
Warriors reach 100 with 1:15 left in 3rd. The 120 Rockets allowed Monday was most this season. Warriors have 30 points in past seven mins.
Warriors hit 100 points in the third quarter. They are up 20 points with 1:15 to play in the 3rd.
Harden gets called for the charge less than a minute after getting back in. It's his 4th foul. This is not his night so far.
Harden has 4 fouls now… still just 7 points.
The Rockets are down 16, but it feels like 36. They can't stop the Warriors from scoring. They've put up 26 points in the last 6+ minutes.
Lawler's Law -- first to 100 wins -- normally does not come up in the third quarter. Warriors closing in, lead 94-80 with 2:36 left in 3rd.
Harden has been on the bench several minutes but us coming back in. He is 2-12 with 7 points tonight.
Josh Smith trying to get something going again tonight. He has 14 points off the bench for Rockets.
McHale sat Harden midway through the third. Harden is 2 of 12 for just 7 points.
Rockets also starting to panic offensively, forcing the ball into traffic on dribble. Have missed past 4 shots w 2 tos in 10-2 Warriors run.
It's like it's in James Harden's head right now. He's 2-12 from the field and doesn't look confident to go the basket. 80-68 Warriors.
