What’s next for Dwight Howard?

With their first round defeat at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets disappointing season has come to an end. The end of Houston’s season also likely marks the end of the team’s relationship with center Dwight Howard, who will surely opt out of the last year of his contract with the Rockets. So, what’s next for Dwight Howard? Where will he go? Truthfully...

Dwight Howard does not want to answer questions about his future

The Houston Rockets' season ended on Wednesday night with a 114-81 loss in Game 5 of their playoff series with the Golden State Warriors, and Dwight Howard was in no mood to talk about his future.

Rockets vs. Warriors Game 5: Houston goes out with a whimper

The Rockets put up little fight in Game 5, and now enter an offseason full of uncertainty. At least our pain is over. We knew the Rockets needed to shoot better to have a chance tonight against the Warriors, and we know they haven't been good at putting the ball through the net up to this point. What we didn't know was they were actually saving their worst for last. Houston shot...

Dwight Howard doesn't want negative fans traveling to GS

Down 3-1 and heading into a place that’s been a veritable House of Horrors for them recently, the Houston Rockets certainly have their backs against the wall. Still, Dwight Howard doesn’t want to hear anyone’s pessimism, and he doesn’t even want any pessimistic people traveling with the team.

Did Houston Rockets fans cheer Stephen Curry's injury?

The Rockets’ bench was not very excited about James Harden’s game-winner

It’s been a rough season for the Rockets, one in which they were expected to be one of the Western Conference’s better teams but instead slipped all the way down to .500 and came within a game of missing the playoffs. Along the way, this Houston team hasn’t exactly gotten a reputation for loving each other. Well Thursday night, with Steph Curry out for the Warriors, James...

Rockets GM Daryl Morey blasts Warriors for playing dirty

The Houston Rockets at least temporarily salvaged its first-round match-up with a 97-96 Game 3 victory over the Golden State Warriors Thursday night, cutting the series deficit in half heading into Game 4 Sunday when they could even up the series at two games apiece.

WATCH: Houston Rockets Players Don't Look Too Thrilled About James Harden's Game Winning Shot

The Houston Rockets desperately needed a win last night after losing the first two games of their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors. So James Harden put the team on his back and went into full-on beast mode, scoring 35 points with nine assists and eight rebounds.

Rockets CEO destroys Charles Barkley for dissing Houston's effort

Never shy with his opinions, TNT analyst Charles Barkley has taken it on the chin before for false predictions or off-base claims.  It happened again Thursday night when the Rockets, facing a 0-3 series deficit to the Steph Curry-less Warriors, mounted a 55-48 halftime lead before their home crowd. Chuck wasn't impressed with the effort, as seen in his halftime assessment and prediction...

The Houston Rockets just can’t catch a break

The Houston Rockets drew the short straw in the NBA’s Western Conference Playoffs when they were matched up with the virtually unbeatable Golden State Warriors. Houston has not been competitive in the series and no one is giving them a chance to come back from the 2-0 deficit; not even the analysts.

TNT threw some major, major shade at the Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets are the Rodney Dangerfield of the NBA Playoffs – no respect, no respect at all.  And no regard either.

Iguodala: Playoff game vs. Rockets like practice scrimmage

The Golden State Warriors are undoubtedly the best team in the NBA, and arguably the greatest team in regular-season NBA history with their 73-9 mark for the 2015-16 season.
