Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets: Lose 122-111
The Denver Nuggets traveled to take on the Houston Rockets on the second half of a back-to-back. Denver won its third straight on Friday night before heading to Texas. Houston is the 2nd highest scoring team in the NBA.
Houston came out of the gates with guns blazing and put Denver in a 12-2 hole early. Chandler Parsons had 8 of those...
Dwight Howard is terrible at free throws. You know it, Dwight knows it, even the league knows it. That’s why the NBA decided to create a rule that would reduce how many times Howard, a career 57.6% shooter, would make it to the charity stripe.
When put that way it seems ludicrous, but it’s actually rather brilliant. It’s filed under the NBA rule-book as an ‘away-from-the...
To most players, fans, and staff of the Houston Rockets, landing Dwight Howard in free agency this past Summer was a win, but to big man, Omer Asik, the acquisition has been a nightmare. Reports of Asik requesting a trade surfaced almost as soon as Howard signed on the dotted line, but in recent weeks, the requests have turned into demands, and the defensive specialist has now reportedly...
Dwight Howard and Chandler Parsons understand Omer Asik’s frustrations with his role with the Houston Rockets this season.
Asik has started eight of the 10 games this season. He didn’t play on Thursday in New York amid reports that he was requesting to be traded.
“Totally, I understand where he is coming from – his frustration, sharing the floor,” Howard said. “I...
If it’s true that everything is bigger in Texas, then this version of “Linsanity” should be apocalyptic.
Less than two years after Jeremy Lin set the sports world on fire with his ridiculous two-month run in 2012, the one-time Harvard stud who couldn’t find a suitor on draft night is playing the best basketball of his career. Yes, it’s early. Yes, the Rockets have thus...
A strong performance from the free-throw line for Dwight Howard his last time out has the Houston Rockets less worried about the ball being in his hands at the end of close games.
The star center will look to continue his recently improved foul shooting and help the Rockets to their fourth win in five games Tuesday night against the visiting Boston Celtics.
Again subjected to being...
Jeremy Lin is playing well again, which apparently means people can go back to saying stupid things.
After Lin dropped 21 points on the Knicks on Thursday — in what was actually his lowest scoring output in almost a week — ESPN SportsCenter anchor Jorge Andres pointed out that Lin was hot. Well, not just hot, but “cooking with peanut oil.”
Andres’ comment was racially-tinged...
Forward Chandler Parsons said the back spasms he has been experiencing for a week are like nothing he has felt.
But Parsons said he will continue to play through the pain.
On Saturday night, Parsons didn’t look like someone hurting. He had 20 points, six rebounds and three assists in a 122-111 win over the Nuggets.
He is getting treatment for his back daily but said the problem...
He comes from a sabermetric world, and some people even tell you he helped pioneer a new way of thinking about the NBA game. Which makes us wonder this about Daryl Moray: Are he and other MIT Monsters of Math less inclined to fall in love with their teams?
Especially when they’re only 6-4, which is not the kind of start one would hope for a team with title expectations?
Everyone remembers Linsanity, right? That brief month back in February 2012 when Knicks PG Jeremy Lin ruled the sports world and was bigger than Tebow, LeBron, and Kobe combined? Although it was a little over a year and a half ago, it feels like it happened in another lifetime. Linsanity ultimately faded and the guard moved to the Houston Rockets, where he experiences much...
James Harden was back in the lineup, Jeremy Lin was back at Madison Square Garden, and that was just enough to help the Houston Rockets withstand Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks.
Harden scored 36 points in his return from a one-game absence, and the Rockets overcame Anthony's 45 points for a 109-106 victory Thursday night.
Anthony had the highest-scoring game in the...
Hide your kids, hide your wife, crank up the Owl City and hand me a KFC Double Down. The Class of 2010 is in the hizzous!
That’s right, it’s looking like that draft wasn’t so bad after all, what with a healed and dazzling John Wall; the Doug Collins-less, unleashed Evan Turner; a settled-in DeMarcus Cousins; Boards-N-Blocks favorite Greg Monroe; my NBA BFF Paul George; and...
Butler injury adds to Bucks woes
Bucks vs. Pacers, 7 p.m.
Milwaukee looked like they survived Orlando without facing another injury. The result of the game was still in doubt and the Bucks still had a chance to win. With eight guys available to play, leaving with eight seemed almost as important.
Then Caron Butler got crunched between Khris Middleton and a Magic defender with...
