KJ McDaniels fractured his wrist in the game last night and could be lost for the season.

Today the Rockets had an optional practice but everybody showed up. Team mostly viewed film.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets GM Daryl Morey: "We have big goals this year and getting ourselves in the right position was step one."

Jonathan Feigen

Obviously, McDaniels was not likely to play in the post-season. But it is remarkable. Rockets with injuries from the second to last games.

Jonathan Feigen

The beat goes on. Rockets w/ another injury in season-finale. K.J. McDaniels injured his wrist. Likely fractured. Likely out for playoffs.

Rockets switch the New Orleans-San Antonio game on to the big screen. Pels up 8 with 29 seconds left.

Toyota Center just put the Spurs/Pelicans game on the big screen. #nicelydone #RedNation

Rockets handle business, beat Utah, earn home court advantage for first round.

Harden had 16 points by the way.

Final in Houston: Rockets win 117-91 over Jazz, clinch homeport advantage.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 117, Jazz 91. Rockets finish 56-26, their third-best season ever, and clinch home-court in the 1st round.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 117, Jazz 91. Rockets 56-26 regular-season third-best in franchise history.

Howard Chen

#Rockets win 117-91. Time to watch the final minute of the Pelicans/Spurs game. Pelicans up 7 in the final minute. #GoForTwoooooo

Jonathan Feigen

Looks like the Pelicans will hold on. Lead by 7 with 56 seconds left.

Howard Chen

Different facial areas have been highlighted this year in the NBA. There's the Most Valuable Beard. The Most Valuable Brow. #Harden #ADavis

Calvin Watkins

This game is so bad, the scouts have left.

Howard Chen

K-J McDaniels elevates for a dunk. It brings a smile through that Harden beard. #RedNation

Howard Chen

Pelicans hanging on, hanging on so far. Lead Spurs by 11 with under 5 minutes left.

David Hardisty

James Harden will finish one three-pointer away from tying the franchise record for made triples in a season (Aaron Brooks, 209 in 2009-10).

David Hardisty

Gregg Popovich can't resist hacking Rocket centers. He's putting Asik on the line intentionally every time down. 90-83 NO, 6:20 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets, by the way, have all four rookies on the floor. Capela replaced Prigioni. Dorsey in at center to provide adult supervision.

Jonathan Feigen

Pels lead fading fast. Spurs within five.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets fillling the floor with rookies. Papanikolaou, Johnson and McDaniels in, likely for the last time until Las Vegas.

David Hardisty

The Spurs were down by 20+. They are now within five, 8:00 left in the game.

Howard Chen

Spurs within 7 with 8 minutes left...

Calvin Watkins

The Rockets lead, 98-68. The Jazz have never led.

Howard Chen

This is important playing time for the #Rockets on the floor right now. For some of them, this could be their last minutes bfor next season.

Howard Chen

Spurs refuse to go away, cut into the Pelicans lead to single digits.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets up 93-60 after 3. Had led by 39. Pels, however, fading fast in New Orleans. Spurs within eight.

David Hardisty

Unless the Rockets get outscored by 34 points in the fourth quarter, they can start prepping to host Game 1 this weekend.

Calvin Watkins

Harden finished with a triple-double. 16 Pts, 11 Rebs., 10 assts,. Fourth time this season.

David Hardisty

TRIPLE-DOUBLE for Harden: 16 pts, 11 reb, 10 asts. It's his 4th of the year, tying him with Hakeem Olajuwon for franchise high in a season.

Howard Chen

Harden exits the game after getting the triple double to loud cheers and chants of "MVP." #RedNation

Calvin Watkins

Standing O with MVP chant as Harden leaves with 1:38 left in 3.

Jonathan Feigen

Nick Johnson in for James Harden who leaves to a standing ovation.

Calvin Watkins

It's so bad here Joey Dorsey is about to check in and I doubt if Howard and Harden will play in the fourth.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets are flat out taking care of their business tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden has his triple double. Should be done for the night soon. Has 16p, 11r, 10a with 1:38 left in third, Rockets up 27.

Howard Chen

Harden triple double to end the regular season. #BeardFate #BeardNation #Bearding #BeardBeardBeard

Jenny Dial Creech

Triple-double for Harden - 16 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists

David Hardisty

New Orleans is up by 11 points over the Spurs as the two teams head to the fourth quarter. You have to think it will be close in the end.

Howard Chen

This #Rockets game is getting so out of hand that I kinda just want them to feed it for Capela every time down for dunks from here on out.

Jonathan Feigen

Grant Jerrett in for the Jazz, proving Grant Jerrett is not a NASCAR driver.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden closing in on a triple down, but with Rockets up 35 midway through third, he might not be getting much more time.

Howard Chen

The entire replay of this game broadcast later tonight will be pretty much a #Rockets highlight fest.

Calvin Watkins

I don't think James Harden cares about the scoring title, so much.

Howard Chen

Spurs back to within 12...

Jonathan Feigen

At halftime, the Jazz have one more point than Russell Westbrook has in the first half against the Timberwolves.

David Hardisty

Elijah Millsap was getting physical with the defense and Harden just shook him to end the half. vine.co/v/ezWpX65JuHB

Calvin Watkins

Rockets with 11 blocks. The season high is 13.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have not won a division championship since 1993-94. They remember that season fondly for other reasons.
