Was able to make it to some early-morning Black Friday shoe shopping before Rockets-Clippers shoot arounds this morning. :)

Alex Kennedy

I know tonight was rough with no NBA games on, but there's 12 tomorrow including Mavs-Raptors, Clippers-Rockets, Kings-Spurs, Grizz-Blazers.

Ralph Lawler

Thanksgiving in downtown Houston. Just like I always dreamed about. Clippers-Rockets tomorrow @FoxSportsWest http://t.co/CpZ9EkLQSk

Devin Kharpertian

Conversely, Rockets teammate Dwight Howard is the only qualifying player with a worse TS% (.563) than FG% (.575).

Eddie Johnson

On pace, D-Mo, Canaan and a hack-a-Joey. RT @ReidLaymance: Rockets 102, Kings 89: Five thoughts from @jonathan_feigen blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Rockets' Donatas Motiejunas dishes a sick pass to James Harden sportando.com/en/usa/nba/142… http://t.co/weTTWV4iOH

Kings play giveaway, fall to Rockets sacb.ee/1XsS

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets first in points allowed per game and 3-point shooting % defense; 2nd in overall shooting % defense.

Jonathan Feigen

Holding the Kings to 89 pts on 43.7 % shooting, Rockets regained the top spot in defensive rating, allowing 94.5 points per 100 possessions.

Donatas Motiejunas

W!!! 12-3 #Rockets #Pursuit thanks for the support!!! ;)

Royce Young

That means that Ish Smith will remain on the roster. He's a player OKC liked during the summer but he was under contract with the Rockets.

Make sure you tune in to the Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow morning to see us & Clutch the Bear! #turkeyday #RPD #Rockets

Rockets Power Dancers

Another win for the Houston Rockets! What a fun game

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan had 6 3-pointers, the fourth Rockets player with at least 6 in a game (with Harden, Ariza, Beverley). No other team with more than 1.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets NBA's most turnover-prone tm. Had 4. Ranked 27th in def rebounding %, playing No. 1 off reb tm, gave up 0 2nd chance pts in 2nd 1/2.

Jeff Caplan

Oh. RT @RickFortyOne: Nope. They're trash RT @Jeff Caplan: Maybe I've underestimated the Rockets.

Maybe I've underestimated the Rockets.

Jenny Dial Creech

Tarik Black played tonight with an eye infection because Rockets were short on bigs.

Jason Jones

FINAL: Rockets 102, Kings 89

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 102, Kings 89. Harden struggles shooting, but posts 26p-8a-7r-3blk-2stl. Career-highs Canaan (24p), D-Mo (21p). Rockets 12-3!

Jonathan Feigen

Kings had everything going their way, but the Rockets had their two stars -- Motiejunas and Canaan. Career high for both.

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden get s steal then a drive, finishing with a momentum-stealing slam. #Rockets lead 95-85 with 2:07 to play.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with a drive, a steal and a breakaway. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 left. He's 9 of 30, but has 24-8-7.

Jason Jones

Harden with the steal and dunk that might seal this one. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 to play.

David Hardisty

Papanikolaou misses the first and makes the second free throw, ending the Rockets charity stripe skid at 9.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets might have to get Black back in to match up with Cousins. Motiejunas with four fouls with 4:50 left.

David Hardisty

Harden misses the wide open three, but gets a second chance and nails the corner three! Rockets up 9, 4:54 left.

Jason Jones

Bad foul for Cousins to take. Rockets are in the penalty now.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets up 6 with Cousins back in. He'sd matched up with Motiejunas.

David Hardisty

The 3-4 min starting stretch of fourth when Harden sits has been tough for Rockets lately, but they kept the 4-pt lead as Harden returns.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have no Dwight, Jones, Beverley. Harden's shot missing since 1st q. They are 5 of 13 from line. Somehow, still up 4.

David Hardisty

The Rockets have missed their last 8 free throw attempts.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets lead 77-73 heading into 4th. Have some time before Kings in bonus, go to hack-a-Joey/Tarik. First few minutes with Cousins in key.

Sean Cunningham

Rockets cling to a 77-73 lead over Sacramento heading to the 4th. DeMarcus Cousins' 8th straight double-double: 23pts, 14rebs

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan really bailed out Houston in the third, scoring 14 of his 21. Rockets clinging to a 77-73 edge heading to the 4th.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the 3rd, #Rockets still ahead… barely. 77-73.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets get a time out to get Motiejunas into the game before Dorsey could miss any more free throws. But that puts D-Mo on Cousins.

Bill Herenda

Cousins holding right know as #Kings trail #Rockets by 2 75-73 with 44.5 seconds left in Q3 #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Harden 1 of 15 with 1 assist since the first quarter. For some reason, with his shot, 3 starters out, Rockets having trouble scoring.

Jenny Dial Creech

The Rockets and third quarters don’t seem to be getting along well these days.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets not just missing 3s. Actually, that's all they've made for awhile thanks to Canaan. Harden short on 2 drives, an 18-footer.

Jason Jones

But the Kings can't stop Isaiah Canaan who now has 16 points. Rockets lead 68-60.

Chris Herring

Similar to Rockets game, Knicks putting together some nice runs in Melo's absence. Have to finish, but have 77-71 lead here in Dallas.

Jason Jones

Former King Joey Dorsey (remember him) will take his turn on Cousins. Rockets can't stop him and will throw everyone at him.
