Isaiah Canaan

Thanking the Man Above!!

Daryl Morey

They count these games, yes? http://t.co/qMyF6lugfd

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan on his big 4th quarter: “We just wanted to seal the deal. I made a couple shots and kind of put the icing on the cake."

Jonathan Feigen

Popovich on being ready for Tues.: "Sure we look for our guys to kick it up a notch. We ovbviously don't want them to kick it down a notch."

Jenny Dial Creech

A Popovich nugget: “Sure we look for our guys to kick it up a notch. We obviously don’t want them to kick it down a notch."

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden’s 25 points tonight were the most for a Rocket this preseason. He said his hot streak came from the team’s chemistry.

Jenny Dial Creech

More Harden on preseason: "and we’ve been trying to go out there and get it done and guys are really listening and getting it done."

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden on the preseason: "Practice has been intense and coaches have been preaching what they want and what they expect from us…"

Jenny Dial Creech

The preseason is over! The Rockets win their final preseason game 96-87 over the Spurs.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan seals this one with a huge three. Big shot for a guy who needed it. Rockets take it 96-87 over Spurs.

Jenny Dial Creech

It’s the Isaiah Canaan show in the 4th quarter- back to back long 3s from the guard. He has 18 points tonight.

David Hardisty

Tony Parker yells "Hey!", gets foul call. youtube.com/watch?v=J32Uh5…

Jenny Dial Creech

Pop took a moment to show an official how to signal a traveling call. He seemed eager to educate him.

Jonathan Feigen

Spurs called for a technical for an "excessive time out." Would think any preseason time out in the fourth quarter is "excessive."

Jonathan Feigen

It's good to be the champs. Tony Parker flew by three Rockets on a break, missed the layup and got a call for being too good to have missed.

Jenny Dial Creech

With 3:30 left in the game, Rockets ahead of Spurs 84-80. McHale has stayed with all backups this quarter (except TJones)

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones with by far his best game since Phoenix. Really struggled on road trip. Rockets need him to grow out of the inconsistency.

Jonathan Feigen

Tarik Black was double-teamed in the low post by Tim Duncan and Tony Parker -- a sentence I did not expect to type maybe ever.

Jenny Dial Creech

Of course Troy Daniels is going to hit that… #TD3

Jonathan Feigen

Spurs playing more regulars in the fourth quarter than they probably will in April here. Duncan, Parker, Green and Belinelli start the 4th.

Jonathan Feigen

No need to check the scoreboard. Daniels and Canaan in so this must be the start of the fourth quarter.

Jenny Dial Creech

Troy Daniels enters the game to start the 4th quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden quick getting some shots up before the third quarter ends and he sits. He's 7 of 9 in the quarter for 20 of his 25 points.

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden just hit is fifth 3 of the night. He is 5/9. Rockets lead Spurs 76-60.

David Hardisty

Little things Rockets didn't do last year -- Papa outhustles Spurs to offensive board, leads to a Harden three. Harden now has 15 in the 3Q.

Jonathan Feigen

We're moving the dials on the Popometer. He got in Tony Parker's face in that time out. Nothing too extreme by his standards, but...

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza chatted with Pop during time out. Kid official said he needed to go back toward Rockets bench area until horn. Lighten up, Francis.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have led the league in turnovers forced per game this preseason. The Spurs had 13 in the first half tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Parker played 15 mins, Duncan 13 in 1st half. Not sure we'll see a ton of them in second half. Rockets up 17 with Harden 2 of 9 for just 5.

Jonathan Feigen

Since McHale took TO less than 4 minutes into the game, Spurs have gone 7 of 24 for 21 points over 20 mins. No FGs in final 6 1/2 of half.

David Hardisty

49-32 Rockets over Spurs at half. Beverley-Ariza combo outstanding tonight. Excited about what those two will do for perimeter D this year.

Jonathan Feigen

Happy for Isaiah Canaan. Had to be a tough preseason, but he's showed something these past few games.

Jonathan Feigen

Aaron Baynes caught Harden with a hard right to the side of his head on a screen. Play on.

Jonathan Feigen

Game began with Spurs moving ball, getting open looks as if back in Game 5. Since then, Rockets have really stepped up D. Best it's looked.

Jenny Dial Creech

A Kostas Papanikolaou 3-pointer gives the Rockets a 10-pt lead in the 2nd QTR

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones getting a long run as a backup center, matched up with Duncan. Best he's looked in a while.

Jenny Dial Creech

This is the first time in the preseason that we have seen Isaiah Canaan before Ish Smith.

Jonathan Feigen

Now this is different. Isaiah Canaan starts the second quarter at the point.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the first, Rockets lead the Spurs 24-19 in their final preseason game.

Jonathan Feigen

D-Mo could not make a shot (0-11) on Wednesday. Can't miss one so far tonight. Hit all 3 with right hand.

Jonathan Feigen

Played about 2 min at pt. MT @mavs2011champs0: @Jonathan Feigen I'm unable to watch Rockets games. How has Jet looked at PG this preseason?

Jenny Dial Creech

Terry checks in for the Rockets- his first time in front of the home crowd.

Jonathan Feigen

Jason Terry checks in at point. Think we'll see a lot of that, especially with Harden still on floor.

Jonathan Feigen

Motiejunas hits his first shot, a falling, off-hand hook. A tougher shot than any of the 11 he missed on Wednesday.

Jonathan Feigen

All of the Spurs' 5 FGs have come off assists. All none of the Rockets four (on 14 attempts) have come off a pass. Kind of how both play.

Jonathan Feigen

Got to think Tarik Black starting last 2 Rockets preseason games while Dwight's out says a lot about him making this team. Can't be ignored.

Jonathan Feigen

And in case some of you don't have that song explaining Dwight Howard's laceration in your heads -- screen.yahoo.com/derek-stevens-…

Jonathan Feigen

McHale offered no insight as to how Dwight cut his arm, but it seems I have the Derek Stevens song, "The Lady I know" stuck in my head.

Jonathan Feigen

Tarik Black starting again at center. Canaan to split bench time with Smith. Make of that what you will.

Dwight Howard's stitches came from something that happened at home- not practice or a game. He was at the Toyota Center this morning.

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard has a laceration in his forearm that required stitches. He is fine, but is going to sit out tonight vs. Spurs.

Chandler Parsons

Happy Birthday to the best in the game @Drake! Enjoy homie.

David Hardisty

Really going to miss @BDolemanCSN & Calvin Murphy. Great postgm team. If you missed last night's emotional farewell: csnhouston.com/video_content_…

Jonathan Feigen

Could be some NBA interest in Covington, D-League ROY last yr, but might have to weigh non-guaranteed money here vs. guarantees elsewhere.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets still have not officially waived Robert Covington, but has not been w team for almost 2 weeks. Weighing guaranteed offers in Europe.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets make release of Akil Mitchell official today and sign Geron Johnson. Both will soon be proud RGV Vipers.

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones just had a stiff neck from when the ball was saved off his face. Could have kept playing.
