Jonathan Feigen

Really close, late call on offensive goaltending on Howard, but I think the right call. Can be reviewed.

David Hardisty

It's a shame that Faried just fouled out because he's exactly who we want guarding D-Mo right now. Rockets up 103-101.

Howard Chen

Faried can't stop D-Mo in the post. We've seen it for 2 games back-to-back now. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Afflalo 3 at the buzzer to tie it. Overtime. Lots of credit to Lawson for getting ball up the floor so quickly.

David Hardisty

Have no idea why the Rockets didn't foul there.

David Hardisty

Of course that happened. Afflalo hits a three to tie it. We're going to overtime.

Howard Chen

Ok I spoke too soon. Wow, Afflalo.

Howard Chen

And then Harden gets the steal to likely clinch it. So much beard. So much awesome. #BeardNation

David Hardisty

James Harden with the steal to seal it! #MVP #NBABallot

Jonathan Feigen

Harden was 0 for the fourth quarter and 0 for 6 on 3s in the gm . Naturally, he knocks down a 26-footer with 10.4 secs left. Rockets up 2.

Howard Chen

So confident, so clutch with that shot. #bearding

David Hardisty

Strong defense twice by the Rockets and they call timeout, down one, with 21.4 seconds left.

David Hardisty

What a steal of the board and pass by Beverley. The high altitude doesn't hurt him -- that guy's energy is nonstop. 96-95 DEN, 1:01 left.

Jonathan Feigen

The offensive rebound that set up Howard for a pair of free throws was Beverley's 10th, one shy of his career high. Had 10 vs. Sac.

David Hardisty

Strange call by Joey Crawford to not allow continuation on that basket/foul by Dwight. Seemed neither foul nor whistle was before the move.

Jonathan Feigen

In a tie game, Howard going to line with 2:45 left. Not sure how Rockets should feel about that. He's 7 of 9 from line.

Jonathan Feigen

Looks like Harden needs to sit for just a minute or two, but Rockets can't pull him now, with 4:44 left, while Howard sits.

David Hardisty

Still amazes me that Rockets can shoot 38% from the field and 27% from three and actually be in the lead late on the road. #defense

Howard Chen

Dwight Howard with a mascot is always must-see TV lol. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets swarming to Harden in the lane. He's finding shooters, but can that make enough 3s? Nuggets up 3 heading to fourth.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale going with Nick Johnson in backcourt with Harden, rather than Canaan. Canaan was stretching ankle on bench in 1st half.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden pocket pass to Tarik Black dunk gives Rockets bench their first points of the game. There's 5 min left in 3rd.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets apparently left their defense in the locker room, found it at halftime. Nuggets 2 of 10 to start half. Tie game.

Howard Chen

Harden seriously can't be stopped. #RedNation

David Hardisty

That pass by Harden to D-Mo for the corner three was absolutely spectacular.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets cut 16-point lead to five at half by adding Howard's scoring to Harden's. Still looking for their defense.

David Hardisty

60-55 Nuggets at half. Strong close -- 17-6 run by the Rockets to end half. Harden has 23 to lead all scorers, Dwight has 13-6-3 blocks.

Rockets Power Dancers

The Vets had so much fun Surprising their 'Little Sisters' tonight!

"(The Rockets) have a different approach than we do... We think chemistry matters," said Mark Cuban... now trying to trade for Rajon Rondo.

David Hardisty

Dwight Howard with the drive and throwback slam. #NBABallot vine.co/v/OgjHXXLr7Yg

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets playing 1st half of back-to-back as if it's 2nd night. Getting outworked, blown out. And they land at 4:30 a.m. to play Pels tmrw.

Jonathan Feigen

At this rate, Nick Johnson might foul out before he gets sweaty.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden stays in to take FT after Arthur T, giving him 15, then sits. Johnson back in on Arthur.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets pretty badly outplayed in 1st quarter, but late D-Mo 3 and 4 Harden free throws cut lead to 29-25. Darrell Arthur adds another T.

David Hardisty

Nuggets went on a 17-4 run before D-Mo hit a three. It all started when Dwight Howard came out. Defense went south.

Jonathan Feigen

Afflalo was whipping Nick Johnson. Beverley back in, playing with Canaan.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets giving Harden little help. He's 3 of 5 for 10p. Rest of Rockets 3 of 16 for 6. D-Mo long way from Saturday's 25. He's 0 for 3 for 0.

Jonathan Feigen

New way to mispronounce Motiejunas tonight. PA guy went with Moo-tee-oo-nas.

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets, Rockets shoot a ton of fts. (Rockets take 6th most but will move way up with Howard back.) Expect another midnight madness game.

Jonathan Feigen

Brian Shaw said the Nuggets "want some get back" for Motiejunas' career-high 25 on Saturday. Faried returns to starting lineup against him.

Jonathan Feigen

Yes, because all 30 teams lose every game he officiates. RT @SamSchlanger: @Jonathan Feigen Crawford? That's a loss.

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets a different team at home. Three-point shooting jumps from 30 % to 36.1 %, ppg from 99.9 to 105.8 compared to road games.

Jonathan Feigen

Officials for Rockets-Nuggets: Joe Crawford, Eric Lewis and James Williams.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale said he "would be shocked if (Howard) doesn't play. We'll see after warmups. I hate to be like that but it's kind of where we're at."

Jonathan Feigen

Kostas Papanikolaou also listed as "doubtful," but since he's not in Denver, I'm going to take it upon myself to downgrade him to "out."

Jonathan Feigen

Howard said "it wasn't a concern." Expected some swelling. Still, stiffness after light workout on Mon. makes 2nd half of back to back iffy.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard: "They said the recovery process would be a little slow since this is my 1st couple games coming back."

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard went through shootaround. Listed as questionable, depending on how things go today.

Jonathan Feigen

Many Nuggets changes since Saturday in Houston. Gallinari, Robinson back: Faried back in starting lineup.

I like the moves the #Astros have made so far. Improving where needed. Looking fwd to seeing how this bunch does next year.

The Bears are a pure debacle. Complete dysfunction. Need for a clean slate.

On his switch to #TCU, Awolope cited the school's desire for championship greatness. Can't really argue w that after the yr the Frogs had.
