Ira Winderman

Wade with careless offensive possession creates and-one opportunity for Rockets.

Josh Robbins

MT @Jonathan Feigen: Both teams going with starters to begin 2nd half. Think a full 8 minutes more would mean lots of Rockets rest in ORL

Jonathan Feigen

Both teams going with starters to begin 2nd half. Would think a full 8 minutes or so more would mean lots of Rockets rest tmrw in Orlando.

Surya Fernandez

Second chance points in the first half: #Rockets 12 (4-4), #Heat 2 (1-1)

David Hardisty

Rockets up 52-41 at half. Feels like a regular season game. If it's any indication, looks like D-Mo, Papa, Terry are the top three reserves.

Ira Winderman

Rockets 52, Heat 41 at half. Wade with 17 on 8-of-10, Bosh with nine, Harden with 15, Dwight with 15.

Jonathan Feigen

Next time the Rockets practice (Saturday?), first on agenda has to be coverages on screens. Help not there.

Howard Chen

Dwyane Wade puttin on a show so far tonight, but then, so is Harden. 15 pts so far for the Beard. Rockets up double digits in the 1st H.

David Hardisty

Rockets looked terrific in first quarter in Miami, hitting 6-9 on threes. Harden, Ariza combined for 14 points. 28-18 Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Chris Bosh just 1 of 4 in first quarter. Not sure that makes the Rockets feel any better, but it's nice of him not to torment them so far.

Ira Winderman

Rockets 6 of 8 on 3-pointers, because that's what teams do against the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Not a good start for a team trying to avoid an 0-3 preseason at home. Heat trail Rockets 28-18 going into second quarter (TNT, really).

David Hardisty

Check out the Rockets' bench as Jason Terry buries the triple. They're all aboard "The Jet". Rockets up 28-16. http://t.co/B7KWd8nCOi

Surya Fernandez

Rockets currently 5-7 from beyond the arc in the first quarter. Heat are 0-2

Jason Lieser

Jason Terry is on the Rockets.

Joseph Goodman

Fancy RT @ThatNBAPick Chris Bosh hits no-look circus shot against Houston Rockets: bit.ly/1sMIWLR

Jonathan Feigen

Chris Bosh was not the only Heat player the Rockets' pursued. Did not advance nearly as far, but also had talks with Deng.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Good test run for Rockets & Heat tonight. Both teams playing regular starters, rotation, w/ exception of McRoberts' absence for Miami.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh. #Rockets starters: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, T. Jones, Howard.

Ira Winderman

Rockets starting Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Trevor Ariza, James Harden, Patrick Beverly. 8 p.m., TNT.

Joseph Goodman

Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Same Rockets starters, rotation as we have seen lately, McHale said. That had Black as b/up center, Smith as b/up point, Pap as backup SF.

Chris Sheridan

As #Rockets visit #Heat, Chris Bosh mulls what may have been & explains why he stayed. What it means for future FAs: sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/21/sh-…

Though happy in Miami, Chris Bosh considers what could have been with Rockets writes @Jonathan Feigen blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Ira Winderman

Hopping on with @KupandCrowder on @560WQAM at 2:25 p.,m., with Heat home preseason finale tonight at 8 p.m. against Rockets.

Ira Winderman

ICYMI: For moment in July, Bosh was closer to being teammate of Dwight, Harden than Wade. Now he faces those Rockets. bit.ly/1vXaXUI

Jonathan Feigen

Roughly. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @Bostonnnnnn: @Jonathan Feigen do rockets take the Heat preseason game semi serious and rest up vs Magic?

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets practice ended about 35 minutes ago. Almost everyone long gone. TJones, D-Mo still going hard through drills. Been like that a lot.

Jonathan Feigen

Waiting out Rockets practice in Heat facility. Nice wall of 120 or so photos of Heat players, staff posing w/ LOB trophies, family members.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Sorry, I meant that I'm seeing Heat/Rockets tomorrow night. My schedule hasn't gotten that crazy -- 2 games in same night -- yet.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Seeing Bulls/Cavaliers tonight & Heat/Rockets tonight. Mute as you please.

Ira Winderman

For moment this summer, Bosh was closer to being teammate of Dwight, Harden than Wade. Tues. he faces those Rockets. bit.ly/1vXaXUI

Wilson Chandler

If you set your mind free baby maybe you'll understand. Starships & rockets, in a world that don't give a damn...

Wilson Chandler

Starships & rockets in a world that don't give damn. Bullets fly pass me, who can I trust?! A player doing the best I can.

Bill Ingram

Not sure what the Rockets can realistically expect from Jason Terry, but it's nice to see him get a chance to win...class act all the way!

David Hardisty

4-1 on the preseason now as #Rockets win 90-83. Harden, Dwight return, JTerry sees first action, but Ariza (13p, 4 stls) has been terrific.

David Hardisty

The first basket for @Jason Terry as a member of the Houston Rockets -- a 21-foot jumper. youtube.com/watch?v=BhUuA8…

Jonathan Feigen

Jason Terry hits a 3 at the shot-clock buzzer and does his first taking off pantomime in a Rockets uniform.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets rookie center Tarik Black starting the second half. Appears Dwight is done for the night, unless Black is beating him out.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have used Papanikolaou as a stretch four late in the half, as McHale discussed this week. It's been a good look with GS going small.

Jonathan Feigen

Yes. Rockets, like many teams, do keep those stats. RT @dloper79: @Jonathan Feigen Like, the pass that leads to an assist?

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 27, Houston 24 (end 1) Steve Kerr wasn't happy w/ Friday's defense. Limiting the Rockets to 38.1% will make him a little happier.

David Hardisty

Still looks strange -- Jason Terry checks in for his first Rockets action. http://t.co/bLbM5I06gw

Jonathan Feigen

Jason Terry, Ish Smith first guards off Rockets bench, getting his first time of preseason. Papanikolaou also in.
