Fans Are a Part of the Action and Really HelpAfter the Rockets comeback win over the Lakers at Toyota Center Tuesday night the players were quick to point out the atmosphere and fan support really helped them in grabbing the win. We have heard that before, but Goran Dragic emphasized the help the fans gave the team when interviewed by Bart Enis on Fox Sports Houston after the game.There is nothing like fan support to get the adrenaline flowing when the legs are starting to get tired and minds weary as a team faces a team as good as the Lakers trailing by 17 points in the second half.Certainly it was the players and not anyone sitting in the stands that made the comeback turn into a 107-104 victory, but all that noise and support certainly helped.The Rockets, like many teams in the NBA, are not playing before full houses every night. Sometimes the atmosphere is hardly up beat. That is just life in professional sports. As in baseball there are a lot of games over a lot of nights. It w...

HOUSTON There is no if.
This was Yao Ming at his philosophical finest; part Yoda, part Neo. In his first appearance at Toyota Center since his fragile feet forced his premature retirement last summer, Yao was bombarded was questions from media seeking to unearth any residual bitterness in his disposition.
The statement was profound the first time Yao uttered it in response, yet...
In a move widely expected ever since they acquired Derek Fisher last week, the Houston Rockets have agreed to a buyout with the 37-year-old guard.
The Los Angeles Lakers shipped Fisher to Houston just before the NBA’s trade deadline last week along with a first-round pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, in exchange for forward Jordan Hill. While the Rockets are thin at point guard with...
HOUSTON (AP) -- Even Kobe Bryant was impressed by Goran Dragic on Wednesday night, giving the Houston point guard a quick hug at midcourt after the Rockets rallied to beat the Lakers.
Dragic hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 28 seconds left and finished with 16 points and 13 assists in the Rockets' 107-104 comeback victory.
Down by nine with 5 minutes left, the Rockets had a...
HOUSTON The issues continue to roll off the Lakers' collective backs like water through the rocks of a tranquil stream. This group seems impervious to concerns even when they are pressing and legitimate.
The shorthanded Rockets, absent their starting backcourt of Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin, shredded the Lakers' defense in the fourth quarter on Tuesday night at Toyota Center...
HOUSTON, March 20 – Let’s not even lie. Our thoughts fast forwarded IMMDEIATLY to this game when Derek Fisher was traded from the Lakers to the Rockets last week.
After Fisher’s no-show and eventual buy-out, it was not to be. But there was plenty of napalm to go around towards the end of this one.

The Derek Fisher rumor mill has started churning and it appears the soon-to-be free agent guard isn’t wasting any time finding a new home.
Fisher has agreed to a buyout with the Houston Rockets, which means he will become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday. Per league rules, he is then free to sign with any team in the NBA, other than the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers sent...
Derek Fisher is in Oklahoma City finalizing a contract with the Thunder for the remainder of the season.
Derek Fisher is likely to sign with Oklahoma City once he clears waivers on Wednesday evening.
Veteran point guard Derek Fisher was a no-show to his new team after the Lakers dealt him to the Houston Rockets March 15th, prompting the Rockets to buy out his contract. Apparently Fisher has quickly found a new home in the Western Conference, agreeing to terms to join the top-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder: Fisher is scheduled to [...]
The Heat and Thunder are the early candidates to sign Derek Fisher once he clears waivers.
Derek Fisher is not a starting PG in the NBA anymore, and the masquerading around as such that he did in LA this past season was painful to watch at times. But, he is still an extremely valuable NBA back-up I think, especially for a contending team. The Oklahoma City Thunder appear to agree with that assessment, and reports out of OKC are that they're close to inking a deal with...
If my prediction holds up, and of course I believe in myself, the Western Conference finals will feature the Lakers going up against the OKC Thunder. And, if that happens, the thought that Derek Fisher could be signing there is HUGE!! It’s being reported that the veteran guard was spotted at Will Rogers World Airport – That’s [...]
