Seay to Krautz for 47yd catch and run to the PN-G 2. Krautz rushes for the Nederland 1yd TD 2 plays later. Bulldogs back up 28-21, 8:57 4Q.
The Bum Phillips Shootout continues. Brant Halfin 7yd rush TD for PN-G. Nederland lead cut to 21-14, 3:42 3Q No one's been stopped in 2nd H
Kick blocked. Pats survive. Pretty entertaining game.
Brandon Bolden appears to be the wrong guess for who the Pats would give more play to w/ Ridley out. Looks like it's mainly Vereen & Gray.
Dwight Howard is hopeful he will play in the next Rockets game. Says his knee is a lot better. “It feels good running up and down, jumping."
Been listening to this Boom 92 radio station today. Have heard 2Pac, Luniz and Salt N Pepa today. It's like 8th grade in my car.
The Game killed that Bigger Than Me track!!
Time to put this work in!!!
Rockets lose for 1st time this preseason, fall 117-98 to ADavis, Pelicans. Papanikolaou led HOU w/ 13p, Canaan 12p, Daniels/Ariza/DMo 9p.
Jimmer going at Canaan as if he were Jimmer.
Rockets going with the summer league team, with Daniels, Canaan, Black and Johnson playing with Jeff Adrien. It worked better in Vegas.
Guessing Davis is done after 30 minutes. Made 9 of 11 shots for his 26 points with four blocked shots. Pels up 90-75.
Anthony Davis is just ridiculous.Already putting on a great show, saved an offensive rebound, then came from four rows deep to set a screen.
Beverley really messing w Jrue Holiday again. Has forced 4 tos in 7 min, but has to sit with 5 fouls. Likely knew his night was almost over.
McHale playing Ariza, Beverley more than he intended tonight. Wanted to get things settled down for guys playing with them.
Going out on a limb. Guessing the Rockets would like to see Jones, Dorsey defend the lane a bit before Davis, Asik are done for the night.
Terrence Jones wearing a large wrap on his right elbow, but Rockets said he is all right. Hit his funny bone.
Papanikolaou may be an NBA rookie, but he's not afraid. He challenged Anthony Davis three times and the third was an amazing circus shot.
Forced to go 1-on-1 late in shot clock, Pap goes under Davis on scoop. Think Rockets are searching? He started at 2, now playing stretch 4.
Papanikoloau drives on Davis twice. Scores on first. Gets the second swatted as Davis adds a dismissive wave of his hand with Pap on floor.
Isaiah Canaan checking in. Important minutes for him after strong showing last night. Should do some work on the Jimmer.
Terrence Jones doubled over during time out. Ish Smith ran into him on a drive. Adrien in for Jones.
Anthony Davis checks back in. Rockets hoping his buddy Terrence Jones shows up sometime, too.
Pels sit starters and Rockets start forcing turnovers. Funny how that works. Smith pushing and creating and Daniels firing 3s a good mix.
How is it that this is the first time we're seeing Troy Daniels in a first half? He already has three triples, the last one from 28 feet.
Kevin McHale shouts: "Someone's got to stop someone out here." Rockets finally did. Pels shooting 80 %.
Troy Daniels comes in and immediate drains a 3, but Rockets getting destroyed in the paint on both ends.
This is by far the worst the Rockets' defense has looked with Omer Asik on the floor in several years. Pels shooting 83.3 % through 7 mins.
Rockets aren't even giving Pels a good workout. They might have to do some running later just to make it a productive preseason day.
Kevin McHale on new Pels center Omer Asik: "We’ll definitely miss Omer, there’s no question. He’s one of the top centers in the league.”
Kevin McHale greeting former Rocket Omer Asik before the game in New Orleans tonight. http://t.co/84ZMv84iuf
Same starters for Rockets as last night, with Dorsey in at center for Howard and K-Pap at the 2 for Harden. Terry also did not make trip.
Just finished putting in work! Weight room and court work done for the day. Now time to get a great meal in me
Good Morning World
Up next for Rockets- New Orleans tomorrow night at 7 p.m. Reunited with Omer Asik… awww
