As my personal schedule gets more demanding, it’s become more and more difficult to provide the breadth of coverage a season as exhilarating as this one should demand. To that end, another call for help.
I’m looking for someone to fill a ‘news editor’ role in line with my desire to bring back the Rockets Daily‘s. The position would require coordinating the schedule for the current staff and compiling a daily gazette of Rockets related news for the readership.
Please send all applications to firstname.lastname@example.org with writing sample attached. Inquiries void of a sample will be taken out of consideration.

The Houston Rockets play basketball like the Starship Enterprise flees danger. It’s beyond entertaining to watch—with a style that offers very few opportunities for blinking, let alone bathroom breaks—but looking at it from the big picture, is their blistering pace a good thing? [read more…]

Combine that with the fact that Anderson Varejao, who has been putting up All-Star level numbers this season, sat out tonight with a right knee injury, and one should have expected an easy Houston victory.
Unfortunately, it was not the case. For while the Cavaliers possess several major weaknesses, they do have energy and length, which for one night, combined with the heroics of Mr. Irving, threatened to upset the second game of the Rockets’ roadtrip before James Harden did James Harden things.
Despite trailing by 18 in the second quarter, the Houston Rockets flipped the script on the Milwaukee Bucks to end the game on top by 14. James Harden had yet another scorching game, but the Rockets also got a big game out of ex-Buck Carlos Delfino, who buried three after three to put his old team away in Milwaukee. The Rockets continue to show growth and grit, and are finding new ways to win.
