Five Tool Tool:
Has lost none of his hops
It takes a lot to get people to notice something in a blowout mid-week NBA game, but that's what happened the other day in Houston, where the hometown Rockets were just on fire from behind the arc against the surprisingly good Warriors. Houston, for those of you who don't pay too much attention to the Association, shoots more three-pointers than anyone in the league, and with guys like James Harden, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons all hitting, they were on path to set a record.
In a blowout, which makes people think, well, that's a jerk move, in that you are running up the score.
Including Warriors coach Marc Jackson, who instructed his guys to just foul intentionally to run out the game.
Including Warriors center Andrew Bogut, who posted a clever non-obscenity to hint at how things are going to be different for the Rockets when they visit Oakland next Tuesday, just before the All Star break.
Here's the thing, however... the bench playe...

LET'S DO IT AGAIN
Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut called out the Houston Rockets following the contested game between them.
Eight-year Rocket, Yao Ming, returned to the Toyota Center Tuesday for the first time this season. The 7-footer watched the Rockets shootaround this morning as the team prepared to host the Golden State Warriors. Ming, in his second second full year of retirement, runs a wine business and is going to school for economics and media.
According to Howard Chen, CSN Houston:
Yao was selected...
Tweet Blake Griffin has made a name for himself outside of basketball by utilizing his dry sense of humor in various commercials and public appearances. However, he tried to bring a little high school-style humor to the court on Jan. 15 against the Houston Rockets during the post-game hand-shakes. Chandler Parsons tweeted out this video [...]
Blake Griffin blasted Chandler Parsons right in the groin in the handshake like, and Parsons called him out.
"Seriously dude?" Parsons tweeted, attaching an eight-second, slow-motion video of Griffin's left hand smacking the Houston Rockets swingman in the testicles as they passed each other in the postgame handshake like.
The Clippers star quickly responded.
The Houston Rockets tied an NBA record and set a franchise mark with 23 3-pointers in a 140-109 win over Golden State on Tuesday night.
Jeremy Lin sank five 3-pointers, a career high, and Chandler Parsons and James Harden hit four apiece as the Rockets reached a season-high point total. They also tied an NBA record with 14 3-pointers in the first half and dished out a season-high...
One of the big stories last night in the NBA was the Houston Rockets tying the NBA single-game record for three pointers made against the Golden State Warriors.For those of you who didn't get to watch the amazing shooting display, below is a compilation video of the 23 three-pointers that the Rockets made in the game:For anyone wondering whose record the Rockets tied, it was...
Clearly, something ticked off James Harden after this play. You don't pick on lesser talents by chest bumping and getting in the face of your opponent. Yes, you can drill threes in his face all day because Ray Allen couldn't guard water in the ocean. Anyways, the up and down play of the Rockets offense hurt them tonight. Not to mention the Heat won the game by falling...
Andrew Bogut was upset with the Houston Rockets for running up the score Tuesday, so he responded by calling them out over Twitter after the game.
Bogut called the Rockets a dirty name while referencing the next meeting between the teams in his incredibly crafted tweet:
C U Next Tuesday fellas!

The Golden State Warriors were destroyed last night by the Houston Rockets 140-109 and the Rockets tied the NBA record for most threes in a game with 23. This game was a beat down from the very beginning with Houston going 14-18 from downtown at the half and scoring 77 points in two quarters of basketball. This young Rockets group under Kevin McHale has been near the top of NBA...
James Harden is ready. For the music, the weather, the restaurants.
And, yes, he'll work in some basketball as well.
''Houston is a beautiful city,'' he says.
Harden will be making his NBA All-Star debut when the game and its weekend of festivities come to Houston Feb. 15-17.
In his first season with the Houston Rockets after an October trade from Oklahoma...
The Houston Rockets put on a three point shooting clinic in Houston last night in their 140-109 beatdown of the Golden State Warriors. And when we say “put on a three point shooting clinic”, we mean that Rockets tied the NBA record by hitting 23 three pointers in the game.
Of course, once number 23 went in, the Rockets (and their crowd) were all about hitting number 24 and setting...
