Patrick Beverley has been an underrated part of the turnaround for the Houston Rockets. He has clearly earned some extra responsibility.
Euro steps are technically legal, but James Harden came close to a traveling violation with his lengthy glide to the basket against Portland.
The Houston Rockets are now rumored to have designs on keeping Dwight Howard, and ultimately targeting Kevin Durant in free agency.
The Boston Celtics desperately need some frontcourt help, and they are reportedly interested in acquiring Dwight Howard from the Houston Rockets.
Two of the best shooting (if not the two best) guards in the game both put their clutch gene on display last night. Within a few minutes of each other, Dwyane Wade and then James Harden both hit step-back jumpers in the final minute of the 4th quarter that iced the game for their team.
Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?
The Houston Rockets aren't a major contender, and James Harden is to blame.
This has been a terrible season for the Houston Rockets as they have tremendous decisions to make regarding the future of their franchise. One thing is certain, Clint Capela will be a major part.
The Houston Rockets made a huge mistake by trading for Ty Lawson in the offseason, and they can rectify it by moving him before the trade deadline.

This backwards shot from Dwight Howard is nothing short of miraculous.
