Wade with careless offensive possession creates and-one opportunity for Rockets.
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.
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.
Rockets 52, Heat 41 at half. Wade with 17 on 8-of-10, Bosh with nine, Harden with 15, Dwight with 15.
Next time the Rockets practice (Saturday?), first on agenda has to be coverages on screens. Help not there.
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.
Rockets looked terrific in first quarter in Miami, hitting 6-9 on threes. Harden, Ariza combined for 14 points. 28-18 Rockets.
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.
Rockets 6 of 8 on 3-pointers, because that's what teams do against the Heat.
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).
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
Rockets currently 5-7 from beyond the arc in the first quarter. Heat are 0-2
Jason Terry is on the Rockets.
Chris Bosh was not the only Heat player the Rockets' pursued. Did not advance nearly as far, but also had talks with Deng.
Good test run for Rockets & Heat tonight. Both teams playing regular starters, rotation, w/ exception of McRoberts' absence for Miami.
Rockets starting Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Trevor Ariza, James Harden, Patrick Beverly. 8 p.m., TNT.
Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.
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.
Rockets practice ended about 35 minutes ago. Almost everyone long gone. TJones, D-Mo still going hard through drills. Been like that a lot.
Waiting out Rockets practice in Heat facility. Nice wall of 120 or so photos of Heat players, staff posing w/ LOB trophies, family members.
Sorry, I meant that I'm seeing Heat/Rockets tomorrow night. My schedule hasn't gotten that crazy -- 2 games in same night -- yet.
Seeing Bulls/Cavaliers tonight & Heat/Rockets tonight. Mute as you please.
If you set your mind free baby maybe you'll understand. Starships & rockets, in a world that don't give a damn...
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.
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!
Jason Terry hits a 3 at the shot-clock buzzer and does his first taking off pantomime in a Rockets uniform.
Rockets rookie center Tarik Black starting the second half. Appears Dwight is done for the night, unless Black is beating him out.
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.
Still looks strange -- Jason Terry checks in for his first Rockets action. http://t.co/bLbM5I06gw
Jason Terry, Ish Smith first guards off Rockets bench, getting his first time of preseason. Papanikolaou also in.
