Klay Thompson is heating up. He's got 13.

Jenny Dial Creech

Josh Smith with his first 3 of the night… that has been a good sign for Rockets in playoffs.

Jenny Dial Creech

Klay Thompson just hit his 3rd 3… he is hot from that corner. Rockets need to keep an eye on him.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden up to seven turnovers.

Calvin Watkins

Kanye sitting in front of George Lopez. Kanye gets booed and the Warriors are on a 14-2 run.

Jenny Dial Creech

George Lopez also in the building. They cheered for him.

Jonathan Feigen

Huge cheers for George Lopez and boos for Kanye. Have not shown Jesse Jackson. Here to keep hope alive?

Jenny Dial Creech

Kanye West is here and he is getting booed… did I miss something?

Jonathan Feigen

Warriors with first eight points of quarter. Howard has to get deeper touches. Rockets might not be able to take Harden out again.

Calvin Watkins

McHale might have to play Harden 46 minutes tonight.

Calvin Watkins

Dwight Howard with two poor post moves on consecutive possessions.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets are 7-4 when leading after the first quarter in the postseason.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets, Warriors combined fell six ponts shy of the 45 Rockets put up in first quarter on Monday.

Calvin Watkins

Golden State shooting 22.2 percent. Yeah, that bad. Houston isn't much better, shooting 33.3 percent.

Calvin Watkins

Harden has nine with a perfect seven-for-seven from the line.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 22, Warriors 17 after 1. Warriors shoot 22.2 % with 6 tos. Harden, Howard combine for 17p.

Jenny Dial Creech

After one, the #Rockets lead the #Warriors 22-17. Harden has 9 points 9 (7 free throws) and Howard has 8.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets with 22-17 lead after one. Very sloppy contest. Warriors playing not to lose, Rockets just playing. Howard with eight and five.

David Hardisty

Warriors are an unbelievably poor 6-27 FG, 1-8 from three. This won't continue. Rockets should be up by more than 22-17 after 1Q.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with 9 points, five turnovers in the first quarter. Teams had a combined 13 turnovers.

Calvin Watkins

James Harden with seven first quarter foul shots.

Jonathan Feigen

Can we make a twitter deal right now? Next season, can we dispense with the usual narrative that Harden does not get foul calls in playoffs.

Calvin Watkins

Warriors look tight. Rockets look loose.

Calvin Watkins

Another poor start from the Warriors. Off to a 5-21 from the floor. Houston shooting 6-15 in a choppy game thus far.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets getting hands in passing lanes and Howard protecting the rim on drives.

Calvin Watkins

Warriors aren't playing with the same swagger we saw in Games 1, 2, 3.

Calvin Watkins

James Harden fakes that he got hit on the three-point attempt. He draws the foul.

Jonathan Feigen

No way Draymond Green should be allowed to back it in, back it in on Terry. Jones has to come over the double there.

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard came to play. Has been terrific on both sides of the ball, being aggressive, drawing fouls. He has 8 points, 5 rebounds early.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets trying to get Howard involved in the post this evening.

Calvin Watkins

Bogut has two fouls and he's got to sit.

David Hardisty

Hard to believe Draymond Green tried to claim he was fouled on this play. vine.co/v/ebvTHUiPrMH

Calvin Watkins

I see Ray McDonald just doesn't understand what a restraining order means.

Jenny Dial Creech

I have a fan near me who desperately wants to be on the JumboTron tonight… so that should be fun.

Jonathan Feigen

Mixed start so far for the Atlanta Celtics. Dwight with 6p, 4r and a blocked shot (plus another he caused to miss.) Josh Smith 0 for 4.

Howard Chen

So far, this is definitely NOT the Josh Smith we saw in Game 4. #Rockets

Calvin Watkins

Josh Smith off to a 0-4 start.

Calvin Watkins

Steph Curry with two steals here.

David Hardisty

"People forget how good Dwight Howard is," says JVG. Dwight with 6 points, 3 boards already. 9-4 Rockets.

Calvin Watkins

Dwight Howard drawing fouls getting banged around with Andrew Bogut.

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard is one technical foul or one flagrant foul way from a one- game suspension. Interested to see if that affects his play.

Calvin Watkins

Very sloppy play to start.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets definitely win the pregame battle in the playoffs. Their introduction presentation are by far the coolest I have seen this year.

Jenny Dial Creech

Brian McKnight sang the National Anthem. It was lovely.

Rockets find more motivation to win for Houston's flood victims blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

McHale makes good point about post-season limits for flagrants, technicals. Said should be limit for each series, not playoffs as a whole.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale on NBA reaction to physical play: "What physical play? I missed the physical play so I don’t know what they’re overreacting to.”

Dwight Howard continued: "Our city has been through so much with all the flooding, we have to do our best to bring one home.”

Chris Carter showcasing some speed! #Astros up 2-1 now over the O's.

Howard Chen

Meanwhile, another at-bat, another hit, for Prince Fielder. Guy's sick right now. 13 hits in his last 21 at-bats. That's a .619 average.

Howard Chen

Jimmy Paredes this season. My goodness.

Howard Chen

Not sure there's anyone hotter than Prince Fielder right now. He's already doubled 2day. 11-19 in his previous 4 games w/ 4 HR, 12 RBI, 8 R

Jonathan Feigen

He also emphasized it was a close call, though it seems all of twitter is absolutely sure one way or the other.

Jonathan Feigen

Keys to Thorn's ruling were that Howard was trying to extricate himself from Bogut and open hand. He emphasized both in our quick interview.

David Hardisty

Rockets were fortunate on this one. Dwight will play in Game 5. twitter.com/NBAOfficial/st…

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard cleared to play in Game 5; category-1 flagrant foul vs. Bogut stands blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Apologies if about 10 tweets show up at once. Some technical difficulties sending tweet. Will send link, of story on chron.com.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard cleared to play Game 5. NBA president Rod Thorn said it was a 'very close' call. Ruled Howard trying to extricate himself.

Jenny Dial Creech

The NBA has confirmed Dwight Howard's foul at 8:07 of 3rd quarter last night as a flagrant foul one. No suspension.

Howard Chen

Thankful for those local news stations giving round-the-clock updates on the #Houstonflood & resulting #Houstontraffic.
