Before this #UTAatDAL game tips off, check out my quick Game 1 recap between the Jazz and Rockets: vine.co/v/OMYuUhK062Q

Bob Finnan

The #Cavs' "Humongatron" blows me away. I've never seen a "scoreboard" quite like it. It's comparable, I'm told, to the Rockets' scoreboard

Peter Vecsey

Oh, yeah, BTW, Winter did not do well with triangle at Long Beach, Rockets & Northwestern. Humm, wonder what Phil had that Tex lacked???

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets wait on Pat Beverley injury report, consider rotation options blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets pick up fourth-year options on Terrence Jones, Donatas Motiejunas blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets landed about an hour ago. Was told there'd be no update until tomorrow. RT @jonas_XV: @Jonathan Feigen Any word on @Patrick Beverley

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets pick up fourth year options on contracts of Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas, source said. Both signed through 15-16.

Julian Benbow

Stevens said he should be available for Saturday’s game against the Rockets, though.

Marc D'Amico

What stands out to Jeff Green about his next opponent, the Rockets? "They have a great scorer, a great big guy inside, and 3-point shooters"

A. Sherrod Blakely

Gerald Wallace did not practice today. #Celtics HC Brad Stevens said he should be available for Saturday vs #Rockets.

"Out of sync" Utah Jazz fall to Rockets on opening night | @DeseretNews po.st/fih2Qp http://t.co/E2kjWxy5k3

Aaron Falk

The Jazz opened the Quin Snyder era last night with a 104-93 loss to the Rockets. My game story: sltrib.com/sports/1760081…

Tom Ziller

The Rockets have more made three-pointers than the Lakers have three-point attempts.

Paul Garcia

Gonna be a nice pick up this season. RT @Nikos Varlas: A job well done for @Houston Rockets youtube.com/watch?v=13v3FL…

Adriana Galimberti

I believe he's a great addition to the Rockets. Kostas Papanikolaou highlights (12 pts and 4 threes) vs Jazz: youtube.com/watch?v=13v3FL…

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

Nadie en los Jazz puede parar a Howard. Los Rockets, dos partidos fuera de casa y dos triunfos convincentes baloncesto.as.com/baloncesto/201…

Estadísticas, Box Score Houston Rockets Vs Utah Jazz: bit.ly/1q27KfI #NBA

Lang Greene

Some odds and ends. Through the first two games, the Rockets are 26-of-56 (46.4%) from three-point rage. Not shy from deep at all.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets coach Kevin McHale said he did not know how serious the injury might be.

Jonathan Feigen

As with all muscle injuries, Rockets won't know a timetable on Beverley until tmrw at soonest. Does not seem too serious at this point.

Jody Genessy

The Quin Snyder Era in Utah begins with a 104-93 loss to the Rockets. No streamers. Polite applause by fans. Game 2 in Dallas tomorrow.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 104, Jazz 93. Dwight, Ariza combine for 42, Harden 18p-10a-7r. Rockets 14-27 from 3-pt range. Bev left w/ hamstring strain.

Aaron Falk

Houston has answered the Jazz's run and then some, pushing the lead to 93-77. Rockets are 13-for-24 from the 3. Utah's gone 3-of-17.

David Hardisty

20 now for Ariza, tied w/ Dwight Howard to lead all scorers tonight. Since going back to the starters, Rockets crushing Jazz, now up 93-77.

Jenny Dial Creech

Two nights in a row of solid outside shooting from the Rockets. That bodes well for this team.

Jody Genessy

Rockets have taken an 89-76 lead with a 10-0 run.

David Hardisty

The Houston Rockets starting lineup is really, really good. Lead back to 86-76, 8:05 left.

David Locke

10-0 run by the Utah Jazz to close the 3rd quarter. Rockets 75 Jazz 72. Heading to the 4th LISTEN LIVE - nba.com/broadband/alp_…

David Hardisty

With both Harden, Howard on the bench, Rockets struggle to find some kind of offense. Bench help needed. Jazz within 75-72 through 3Q.

Jody Genessy

For good measure, Trey Burke just hit a right-handed floater off the glass to bring the Jazz within three of Rockets at end of the third.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets look absolutely lost with a lineup they had not used in preseason. Canaan, Terry in backcourt with Black at center, Pap at 4.

Jonathan Feigen

Adam Silver joining the Rockets broadcast. Will @bull50 ask about flopping rules?

Aaron Falk

Rockets led by as much as 13 in the quarter. But back-to-back buckets have cut the deficit down to single-digits. Houston up 75-66 late Q3.

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza doing it AGAIN. He's 6-8 from the field, including 3-5 from deep, for 17 points. 75-66 Rockets, 2:32 3Q.

Jenny Dial Creech

Trevor Ariza is making some doubtful Rockets fans from the offseason shut up.

Jody Genessy

Man, the Rockets are just dropping them in from outside. Houston is now 10-for-15 from deep after a Trevor Ariza 3.

Jody Genessy

Not sure what was said, but Alec Burks glanced back at the Houston bench after hitting a 3-pointer in front of the Rockets.

Tony Jones

Jazz are shooting 60 percent, but giving up 54 percent and the Rockets are 9-14 from 3....

Steve Luhm

If you're wondering why Rockets won't miss Chandler Parsons, his name is Kostas Papanikolaou (12 points, 4-for-4 on 3s in the first half).

David Locke

Rockets EFG% in the 2nd quarter was 79% #HOUatUTA

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Rockets 58, Jazz 50. Burks 10p/2r, Favors 8p/2, Hayward 6p/3r/2a. Howard 15p, Harden 10p, Papanikolaou 12p on 4/4 triples.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets score the last eight points of the half, lead 58-50. Papanikolaou with a career-high 12. (Yeah, I know.)

David Hardisty

Harden for three just before the horn! Rockets close the half on a 22-8 run, lead 58-50 in Utah.

Jody Genessy

Rockets go on a spurt to end half ahead of Jazz 58-50.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden missing his shots (3 of 9), but has seven of the Rockets eight assists.
