    Houston Rockets Tie NBA Record With 23 Three-Pointers (Video)

    The Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors by a score of 140-109 last night.  Nearly half of their points (69, to be exact) came from beyond the arc, as the Rockets tied an NBA record by connecting on 23 three-point attempts during the contest. Leading the way was Jeremy Lin, who made a career-high […]

    Dunking Santa Claus Smacks His Beard on the Rim (Video)

    Santa Claus had a rough Christmas. It’s bad enough having to jet across the planet in an antiquated sleigh being pulled by reindeer to deliver gifts to children all over the world. On top of that, he had to go to his second job as halftime entertainer for the Chicago Bulls after his long journey, […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/28/2012 — Kevin Durant

    James Harden returned to Oklahoma City for the first time since being traded to the Houston Rockets prior to the start of the 2012-13 NBA season, and just in case he forgot how great a player Kevin Durant is, his former teammate was kind enough to remind him last night. While Harden was having a […]

    Rockets’ Omer Asik Scored On His Own Basket Last Night (Video)

    While the boxscore from last night’s game between the Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors tells us that Omer Asik scored 13 points during his team’s 117-101 victory, the truth is he actually recorded 15 points during the contest.  Although, I’m sure Asik doesn’t mind having those additional two points omitted from his stat line, […]

    Halloween Fail: Fog Machine Turns On During Pistons-Rockets Game (Video)

    Halloween and sports have always made a great combination. Fans get to express their loyalties and frustrations through their pumpkin carvings, teams get to spice up their halftime entertainment a little bit, and of course players get a little extra publicity by tweeting pictures of their costumes. It’s all a lot of fun. Of course, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/31/12 — James Harden

    When James Harden was traded from the powerhouse Oklahoma City Thunder to the Houston Rockets over the weekend, many wondered whether he could make the transition from being an all-star caliber sixth-man, to being an all-star caliber lead man.  Well, Harden provided an answer to that question during his debut in a Rockets uniform last […]

    Gerald Green’s Windmill Alley-Oop Slam Was Ridiculous (Video)

    Jeremy Evans  was named the 2012 Slam Dunk Champion following a rather uneventful contest at All-Star weekend.  If it was up to me, he would be stripped of his title and it would be handed to the New Jersey Nets’ Gerald Green following this insane windmill alley-oop slam during Saturday’s game against the Houston Rockets. […]

    Kevin Love Suspended Two Games For Stomping On Luis Scola’s Head (Video)

    Being a hard-nosed player has always been a characteristic of Kevin Love’s game.  Being a dirty player hasn’t. That may all change following an incident during Saturday night’s game against the Houston Rockets, as the Timberwolves’ power forward, who usually does his damage above the rim, was inflicting some damage on the Rockets’ Luis Scola […]

    JaVale McGee’s Self-Alley-Oop Angered His Coach And Teammates (Video)

    With the Washington Wizards entering last night’s game against the Houston Rockets sporting a league-worst 1-11 record, JaVale McGee was hoping to give the Wizards’ fans something to get excited about when he threw down an off-the-backboard self-alley-oop early in the third quarter with his team trailing by six. McGee didn’t see much wrong with […]

  • This Day In Sports History (December 8th) – Charles Barkley

    This Day In Sports History (December 8th) – Charles Barkley

    It was on this day in 1999 that Houston Rockets forward Charles Barkley ruptured his left quadriceps tendon.  The injury occurred in Philadelphia, where Barkley’s career began 15 years earlier. Charles Barkley was one of the fiercest competitors and best rebounders that the NBA had ever seen.  He averaged a double-double in points and rebounds […]

    Picture Of The Day: What’s On Kim Kardashian’s Mind?

    The New Jersey Nets made headlines when they picked up Deron Williams before the NBA trade deadline, and while he may now be the team’s biggest superstar, their biggest attraction is still Kim Kardashian. Kim K was in Houston Saturday night to watch the Nets take on the Rockets, and while her world famous rear […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 12/7/10 — Luis Scola

    The Houston Rockets were expected to play better than they have so far this season, but don’t blame Luis Scola, who is having a career year.  While the Rockets stumbled out of the gate, they appear to be righting the ship with wins like the one they earned last night against the Detroit Pistons.  Scola […]
