  1. Extra Pass: Golden State Warriors defending at historically high level

    Mar 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Jermaine O'Neal, Joakim Noah, Andrew Bogut

    BOSTON – Game-planning for the Golden State last season, the Phoenix Suns wrote “Finesse” on their whiteboard. “Be physical with them, and they tend to back away,” said Jermaine O’Neal, who played for Phoenix last year. Now a Warrior, O’Neal didn’t hesitate to share the observation of their defense with his new teammates. “I told…

  2. Dwight Howard appreciates Magic’s tribute video, claims to understand booing from fans

    Mar 6, 2014, 8:01 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard returned to Orlando as a member of the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, and as part of the Magic’s 25th anniversary season, they played a video tribute to Howard between the first and second periods. Plenty of fans let their disapproval be heard, and boos rained down on Howard as the video began. Howard…

  3. Chandler Parsons would have booed Dwight Howard, too

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Houston Rockets

    The Orlando Magic showed their Dwight Howard tribute video, and as expected, fans booed (though not as thoroughly as I would have hoped during the entire video). Presumably, Chandler Parsons, now Howard’s teammate with the Houston Rockets, was not among the jeerers. But in a different time and place, he could have been. Jonathan Feigen…

  4. Report: Joakim Noah recruiting Carmelo Anthony to Chicago Bulls

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:36 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Joakim Noah, Carmelo Anthony

    Reports Carmelo Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls this offseason are nothing new. Even Melo has stoked the flames of the rumors. But most published work on the subject has focused on where Melo desires to play. Sure, by trading Luol Deng for Andrew Bynum and draft picks, the Bulls signaled a greater interest…

  5. Udonis Haslem told Patrick Beverley to stop talking trash at halftime of Heat-Rockets

    Houston Rockets' Beverley smiles after being called for a foul while playing Oklahoma City Thunder in their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff in Oklahoma

    Patrick Beverley gained some national attention when his aggressive play resulted in an injury to the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the first round of last year’s playoffs. There was nothing wrong with Beverley’s play, but it branded him as an agitator of sorts. He’s since lived up to that label, being one of the more…

  6. Orlando Magic give video tribute to Dwight Howard

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:51 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The Magic have been playing tribute videos for every former player that returned to play against them this season, as part of the organization’s 25th anniversary celebration. It’s a bit trickier where Dwight Howard is concerned, obviously, considering both his stature as one of the franchise’s all-time greats as well as the messy way things…

  7. Dwight Howard’s seven lost siblings the source of his fun-loving attitude

    Mar 5, 2014, 12:35 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Houston Rockets

    CSN Houston premiered “The Dwight Howard Show,” a reality show featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the Houston Rockets center. Early in the first episode, his explanation for his attitude caught my eye: I enjoy life. For those of you who don’t know this, my mom lost seven kids. Seven! That’s a lot of kids. And I…

  8. Orlando Magic to honor Dwight Howard

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:45 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Houston Rockets

    That was the reaction the last time Dwight Howard returned to Orlando. Turn down your speakers. The boos are loud. And for good reason. Howard made his split with the Magic extremely messy. I have nothing against Howard leaving Orlando, but I’m also not a Magic fan. Part of the fan game is getting illogically…

  9. Tuesday night NBA grades: Westbrook with a triple-double in 21 minutes

    Philadelphia 76ers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem if you prefer) and The Roots sing “Let It Go”… Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder. Tell me again how this team is better off without him? Westbrook had a triple double — 13 points, 10 rebounds…

  10. LeBron’s painful final seconds in Houston: elbow to face, missed shot to tie

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    LeBron James found the final seconds of Miami’s loss to Houston painful. It was a complete contrast with just the night before. First on Tuesday night there was the play above — with 15 seconds left in the game and the Rockets up three James Harden tried to make an ill-advised pass ahead to Dwight…

  11. Howard, Houston pass first test with win over Miami

    Mar 5, 2014, 12:54 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Houston passed the first test. The Rockets NBA’s have the best record since Jan. 1 (19-6 coming into Tuesday night) but a lot of that came against soft competition. That was the easy part, the next couple weeks come a series of tests against the league’s best — from that we’ll get a better sense…

  12. Phil Jackson on returning to Lakers (‘I don’t think so’) and coaching Rockets (‘I mean. Um’)

    Mar 3, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Memorial Service For Los Angeles Lakers Owner Dr. Jerry Buss

    Only one thing will end rumors of Phil Jackson returning to coaching: His death. But Jackson is still kicking, answering questions at age 68 about when and where he might coach next. Of course, the Lakers – with whom he was a candidate before they ultimately hired Mike D’Antoni – came up first. Jackson’s 11…

    Utah Jazz v Cleveland Cavaliers

    This is getting disturbing — three times in the past year a fan has gotten on the court in Cleveland. First there was the “LeBron come back guy” last season, then there was the guy who ran out wearing the Kyrie Irving don’t leave shirt earlier this season. Friday night another person ran out on…

  16. The Extra Pass: Is the second tier in West ready to challenge Thunder, Spurs?

    Feb 28, 2014, 8:51 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    We know Oklahoma City is a contender — despite their little three-game blip as they re-adjust to Russell Westbrook in the lineup, they are still 21-7 when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both play this season, they have a top-10 offense and defense when you look at points per possession. The same is true of…

    Dwight Howard

    Is anyone in the NBA having more fun than Dwight Howard? He’s impersonating Kevin McHale, Instagramming a photo of himself dunking on Kobe Bryant, chanting ‘Howard Sucks’ to mock Lakers fans and giving free-agent advice as if he knows what he’s talking about. On the court, he’s playing better and playing for a better team…

  19. Clipper defense, Darren Collison lead L.A. to win over Houston

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:32 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    For both the Clippers and the Rockets, the conventional wisdom is the same: If they can defend well and consistently in the playoffs they move into contender status. Wednesday night it was the Clippers that defended when it mattered — the Rockets shot just 33 percent in the fourth quarter. Combine that with some impressive…

    Feb 26, 2014, 3:01 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Houston Rockets

    Dwight Howard should not be the guy on the top of your list for advice on how to make your free agency process go smoothly. Howard had an ugly, awkward exit after he forced his way out of Orlando,. He landed with the Lakers and was not healthy on a team that by the end…

    Feb 26, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Houston at Sacramento

    It was a frustrating night for DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings — from the opening tip the Houston Rockets  petty much did whatever they wanted.

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had watched the Winter Olympics in a snow fort…  DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He is the guy the Raptors go to in the fourth and what’s different than the Rudy Gay era is how he gets his points — it’s not isolations.…

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Houston and Golden State put on a show — a sloppy, poor shooting show, but one filled with drama nonetheless.
