@  majik19 : (13 October 2015 - 09:09 PM) Apparently we claimed Arsalan Kazemi off waivers from the Hawks today... yet another undersized (6'7") power forward for Morey's cupboard.
@  Mario Peña : (10 October 2015 - 01:12 PM) If your part if the Red94 Fantasy Basketball League check the thread to vote for the date and time for the draft event. Thanks y'all!
@  jorgeaam : (07 October 2015 - 08:47 PM) Guys we need 1 more owner for the Red94 fantasy league, if interested please comment on the post in the fantasy basketball thread
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 06:50 PM) Kobe ranked one spot higher than Ariza? Is this based on legacy or...??
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 04:13 PM) It was hard to keep up with both the Astros and Rockets at the same time. Should be interesting on Thursday with the Texans and Astros on simultaneously.
@  Mario Peña : (07 October 2015 - 04:09 PM) It was fun to have the Rockets on last night! Right now I'm watching the Celtics versus Milan and Alessandro Gentile is impressive.
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Well, thinking twice about it, I'd rather have him score less and have the team as a whole do better. Lawson should take a lot of his load off
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Loving that, hope he hits 30 PPG this year
@  thejohnnygold : (06 October 2015 - 06:15 PM) Someone is feeling confident :) : LINK
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 05:54 PM) 10 Teams done, will need 2 more
@  Mario Peña : (06 October 2015 - 02:35 PM) Alright guys, if anyone is interested in joining the Red94 fantasy basketball league we could use one more player to get us to 10 teams (or three to get us to 12 teams). Just check the thread in the Fantasy Basketball forum. Thanks!
@  thejohnnygold : (05 October 2015 - 06:23 PM) I use leaguepass here in Austin with no problems...
@  skip 2 my lou : (05 October 2015 - 03:14 PM) Hey fellas, I'm a rocket fan but I live in the heart of Dallas. Does anybody know if I buy NBA Leaguepass if it's too close to be subject to blackouts?
@  Losthief : (02 October 2015 - 02:24 AM) tks jg
@  thejohnnygold : (29 September 2015 - 05:16 AM) FYI, it was media day today. Interviews are up at NBA.com
@  slick shoes : (23 September 2015 - 06:37 PM) kind of late in the day but NBATV is broadcasting classis Rockets games all day today.
@  SadLakerFan : (16 September 2015 - 04:37 AM) Man, as a Laker fan, I'm learning how little you care about the off season when your team sucks. Anyway, a quick moment to remember Moses. Still remember watching the 81 team as a kid - losing record, NBA Finals. I would have cried w/joy if they could have beaten the Celtics.

@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2015 - 08:30 PM) So to celebrate his new contract, Montrezl Harrell saved someone's life on monday
@  thejohnnygold : (14 September 2015 - 04:36 PM) A good article from Blinebury talking about when Hakeem and Moses used to play in the park. LINK

    New post: The Rockets Daily - January 9, 2013
    By: mitchell felker

    It's not you, it's me- As you know by now, last nights' Rockets-Lakers game was bumped from ESPN's broadcast because no one wants to watch the Lakers without Mamba for what ended up being an exciting game between Phoenix and Minnesota.  What you may not know is that the NBA made it up to Rockets' fans in a big way, by bumping the Lakers-Bulls match-up on TNT, Monday January 20th, in favor of the Blazers-Rockets.



    I don't know about you, but I'd much rather watch a game between two contenders in a possible playoff match-up, than another Lakers game.  Not to mention, a Rockets game with the always excellent commentary from EJ and the guys.  Although, I still prefer C-Webb to Shaq any day of the week (lay off Dwight, big fella).

    Insert pun here - This weekend, Lakers' Mike D'Antoni capped off a career performance by Kendall Marshall the only way he knew how: by "not" comparing the former lottery pick from a basketball factory to the biggest phenomenon in modern sports.


    "I’m not making a comparison, but Jeremy Lin did the exact same thing," D'Antoni said when asked about Marshall going from coughing up four turnovers in six minutes in his Laker debut just two weeks ago to becoming the first Laker player since Kobe Bryant in February 2002 to hit the 20-point, 15-assist plateau. "The first time he went out in Boston it was awful, and I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh.’ Then, obviously it happened to him. It does happen to guys."

    Of course, Lin responded to the comparison and other D'Antoni questions yesterday after shootaround.

    But after last night's (5 points, 6 turnover) performance against the Rockets, I think it's safe to say that "Marshall Madness" is no threat to Linsanity.

    Beard Streaking - James Harden is on fire.  Last night completed the best three game scoring streak of his career.  Over the last three games, Harden has averaged 37.7 points on just under 23 shots, with a 53% FG, 41 3pt and 88% FT.  It surpassed his previous top-streak, when he scored 37, 45 and 24 points in his three-game Rockets debut.

    Lets not concern ourselves with the fact that this streak came against the likes of Sacramento,  New York and the Lakers, all defensive sieves, and concentrate on the positives: this hot streak also coincided with the first three game stretch of the season where Harden has shot over 40% from three.  It might be that he really is just streaking and the distance-shooting will cool off, or maybe this is James finally getting healthy and regressing back towards the mean.  I don't think Harden will finish the season shooting such a low percentage of his 3's, so we'll see Friday in Atlanta if this is just a streak or, perhaps, a sign of things to come.

      Offense looked fluid last night...there were very few times with little off the ball movement, which has been an issue this season.
