Cavs will be fine once they get that fourth superstar.

Trevor Ariza

Isaiah Canaan

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

Jonathan Feigen

On Beverley, 2 individuals briefed on initial exam said did not seem serious. Still muscle injuries can go either way in the first few days.

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.

Howard Chen

Holy LaMarcus Aldridge alley oop. #Hookem

David Hardisty

Strong showing from Kostas Papanikolaou in Utah. Full highlights from his four-triple night: bit.ly/1wGm6XV

Howard Chen

Russell Westbrook is straight beasting right now. 33 points midway thru the 3rd. That's about half of his team's points.

Jonathan Feigen

I would say it's probably best not to read too much into Beverley's refusal to be interviewed. Really, even he will know little until tmrw.

Jonathan Feigen

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

Jonathan Feigen

I can't tell you how Beverley feels, when he began to feel any pain, if he thinks he can be ready for Saturday or if optimistic/pessimistic.

Jonathan Feigen

Beverley, however, would not answer any questions. Had a long treatment session in training room before flat out refusing to be interviewed.

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.

Howard Chen

Marshall OL Sam Awolope. Remains a firm #RiceOwls commit. RT @EgusiFiend: 1st and 2nd college visits decided. 1. Oklahoma State! 2. Mizzou!

Howard Chen

Sure, most of us were rooting for the Royals. But the Giants earned it. Bumgarner's amazeballs.

Jenny Dial Creech

Good game- glad that went to seven. Congrats to the Giants.

Howard Chen

That woulda been nuts if it became an inside the parker to tie it. #WorldSeries

Jenny Dial Creech

This feels a little scripted.

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.

Jonathan Feigen

Pat Beverley out with a strained hamstring.

David Hardisty

Patrick Beverley appeared to be limping just before that timeout. He did not come back out after the commercial break (Jason Terry in).

Jonathan Feigen

Pat Beverley left the court during the time out. Daryl Morey and Gersson Rosas quickly followed. Waiting on word.

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.

Jonathan Feigen

Guy next to me just complained about Gordon Hayward's 2 of 9, 6 point night. "That's a million dollars a point."

Jenny Dial Creech

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

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones, after an awful first half, has been solid since. Hit a 3, blocked a shot and then scored inside to push lead back to 10.

David Hardisty

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

Jonathan Feigen

Jazz score final 10 points of the third, last eight after Harden, Howard sat. Howard's fourth foul hurt badly.

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.

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.

Jenny Dial Creech

Liking this interview with Adam Silver- so far I've been a fan of him as the commissioner.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight was in for about 15 seconds before picking up his fourth foul. Back to bench, with Harden already sitting.

Jonathan Feigen

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

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.

Jonathan Feigen

Jazz made 60 %of shots in first half, 2 of 9 in first six minutes of second half. Harden with a couple nice stops. Jones shows up, too.

Jonathan Feigen

No call on Hayward drive has Jazz fans sounding like old days. Well, not really, but closer.

Jonathan Feigen

Actually, error by a very good official. RT @IAmLSavage: @Jonathan Feigen I can't decide if officiating is worse in the EPL or the NBA.

Jonathan Feigen

Blocking foul on Beverley not even close. Showed a very good replay on a very good screen here. McHale could not get official to look at it.

David Hardisty

CSN just played this new James Harden commercial for @skullcandy. Pretty cool actually. youtube.com/watch?v=f1AB1_…

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.

Jonathan Feigen

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

David Hardisty

Make it 4-4 for Papanikolaou from three-point range.

Jonathan Feigen

Wow, there really is a new sheriff in town. Adam Silver cheered as shown on scoreboard. Don't think his predecessor was.

Jonathan Feigen

The other thing K-Pap's shot does is keep his man from doubling down on Dwight, who immediately spins, dunks on Kanter.

David Hardisty

Papanikolaou now has three triples in this game, including the last two baskets for the Rockets. Tied at 44, 3:24 left in the half.

Jonathan Feigen

Papanikolaou has hit all three of his treys. When he gets going with his shot, creates chances to create, or something like that.

Jonathan Feigen

Howard asking why he is out of the game. Keith Jones said "They called that foul on you." Told he has three. Stat monitors still show two.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight was called for a foul for touching Rudy Gobert. Call so weird, stats crew gave it to Beverley. Eventually was fixed to Howard. Has 2.

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones was terrific last night. Invisible tonight. Sits with three fouls, 0 points, 1 rebounds. Papanikolaou in at four.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets shoddy early D might have helped Jazz get going at 1st, but Jazz have been impressive offensively. Moving ball, getting good looks.

David Hardisty

Tied at 27 in Utah after one. Jazz hitting 67% from the field -- not sure that continues. Dwight (6-7 FG, 12 points) carrying Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Interesting first quarter with Howard (6 of 7) dominant, Harden (1 of 5) not. Derrick Favors has been impressive. Tied at 27 after 1.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan getting first half minutes for the Rockets. Played only in fourth last night. In a backcourt with Terry.

Jonathan Feigen

That's no small sample size either. The Rockets have opened 11 seasons with back-to-backs on the road, not including this year, since 78-79.

Jonathan Feigen

After last night and 3:30 a.m. arrival, this always had letdown potential for Rockets. Last time opened with a sweep of a road b-to-b? 1978.

David Hardisty

Dwight Howard spins past Derrick Favors for a reverse slam. youtube.com/watch?v=ZSZ2FL…

Jonathan Feigen

Jazz and Rockets both shooting 72.7 %. Jazz and Rockets playing no defense.

Jonathan Feigen

Will be interesting if the Jazz begin double Dwight -- or the Rockets attempt to defend at all.

David Hardisty

"It's the Dwight Howard show!" says Bill Worrell. He's got 10 points on 5-6 shooting in the first 5 minutes of the game.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight hitting his shots even more consistently (5 of 6) than when Kobe was slapping his forearms.

Jonathan Feigen

Good to hear Dan Roberts still Jazz PA guy. With Lawrence Tanter among NBA's most tenured. Steve Francis did a fine imitation of Roberts.

Jonathan Feigen

Adam Silver, in SLC, said it's just a coincidence that he's here for fellow Dookie Quin Snyder ' s debut.

Jonathan Feigen

Annual conversation in Jazz media room. Does NBA own a map? Can it find SLC on a map? Rockets arrived hotel at 3:30a.m. Jazz at Dallas tmrw.

Jonathan Feigen

Depends on results/performance, which are unpredictable. RT @naveem77713: @Jonathan Feigen what will the regular rotation for the rockets be

Jonathan Feigen

I stand corrected. Though one never knows. RT @Rags2Rockets: @Jonathan Feigen I thought @dfbarron reported that the ruling will be tomorrow?

Fran Blinebury

Judge ruling due next week. MT @dgreen5630: @Jonathan Feigen any word on when root will take over? Killing me to not watch Rockets for 2 yrs

Jonathan Feigen

Good one. I bet Fish still booed in TC. RT @JoseWorldPeace: @Jonathan Feigen DFish and Scola. I cringe every time I watch game 2 highlights.

Jonathan Feigen

Yeah, does not belong with the other exchanges. RT @IAmLSavage: @Jonathan Feigen Wasn't a fight either. More of an ambush. #stillmad

Jonathan Feigen

Kobe-Dwight far from first between Rockets, Lakers. (Kermit Washington punch of Rudy T too serious for this list.) blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

James Harden

According to TMZ, both @James Harden & @Trevor Ariza visited Julius Randle in the hospital. Classy move. tmz.com/2014/10/29/jam…

Dwight, Rockets get best of Kobe, Lakers in season opener blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jenny Dial Creech

Well, the NBA season started with a bang I’d say… Lakers/Rockets had lots of drama, Spurs/Mavs had quite the finish.

Jenny Dial Creech

I think there was obviously some sarcasm from Kobe on Dwight, but I do think he also just has a sense of humor about it all.

Jonathan Feigen

One more Dwight: "There's no need to go into it. We won the gm. It's about basketball. It's over. It's nothing. I'm not even focused on it."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight finally, "What do you want me to say because I'm not going to give you nothing. That's stupid. We won the game. It's over with."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight went on to talk about Ariza, Harden, Beverley, Jones. On the altercation: "It's a great start to the season. We got the win."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight on altercation with Kobe: "I’m just happy we won the game. We came out as a team tonight."
