Houston Rockets

  1. Aaron Brooks waived by Kings, signs with Houston

    Mar 4, 2013, 8:52 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks, Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley

    Aaron Brooks was just not part of the future in Sacramento — Isaiah Thomas and Tyreke Evans are your ball handlers there, Brooks was just not fitting in the mix. The Rockets are hoping he can fit in the mix there off the bench. Sacramento waived Aaron Brooks right before the March 1 deadline and…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: It’s Miami then everyone else

    Mar 4, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Not much change at the top of the rankings this week, the Heat can’t seem to lose (the only real shift was the Clippers jumping the Pacers after beating them). The interesting question going forward is how far will the Spurs tumble without Tony Parker for a month. And if they tumble here, do they…

  3. Report: Rockets, Pacers to play first ever NBA preseason game in Philippines

    Mar 4, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    SM Mall of America Philippines

    David Stern himself put it this way All-Star weekend: “…we’re going to be doing lots of exhibition traveling, I have no doubt, this coming preseason.” How about to the Philippines? There is a report out of interaksyon.com that the SM Mall of Asia Arena will host the first ever NBA preseason game in the basketball-crazy…

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the wildest ending to a high school state championship game you will ever see… Lakers 99, Hawks 98: It took a phenomenal performance down the stretch from Kobe Bryant, after the Lakers gave back all of a 16-point third quarter lead…

  5. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, LeBron, Westbrook spark wins

    Mar 4, 2013, 4:06 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, DeShawn Stevenson

    Some very familiar names on top of the three stars list to NBA fans tonight. Sorry to overlook Chandler Parsons dropping 32 out of the blue, or Carmelo Anthony getting 32 in a losing cause, or David West putting up an impressive 31 against the Bulls defense. But these guys had big games and sparked…

  6. Hawks head coach Larry Drew says team ‘took a step back’ after loss to Suns

    Mar 2, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Larry Drew, Josh Smith, Kyle Korver

    PHOENIX — Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew was at a loss as to why his team, which had won four straight and six of its last seven, played so poorly against the Suns and lost 92-87 on Friday in Phoenix. He needed only to take a walk through his postgame locker room to find…

  7. LeBron, Kobe named February’s Conference Players of the Month

    Mar 1, 2013, 8:33 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    LeBron James and Kobe Bryant were named Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Month respectively for games played in February, the league announced via official release. It was the fourth straight Player of the Month award for James (in case you had any doubt who the leading candidate for MVP is), and the Heat…

  8. Aaron Brooks bought out by Kings, likely to join Rockets

    Mar 1, 2013, 7:29 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks, Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley

    Kings GM Geoff Petrie was a believer an Aaron Brooks. The Kings had Isaiah Thomas and Tyreke Evans as ball handlers, but Petrie believed in Brooks. Coach Keith Smart saw him play and Brooks fell out of the rotation in Sacramento. You have to earn it to fall out of the rotation in Sacramento. When…

  10. Why is Chicago slumping? Go back to this summer’s moves.

    Feb 28, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau, Jimmy Butler, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson

    The Chicago Bulls are in a slump. They have lost 7-of-10 and are 6-9 in their last 15. Their already weak offense has slipped a little but it is the defense that has taken the bigger step back. They have slid down the ranks in the Eastern conference to the sixth seed, making their road…

    New York Knicks' Felton comes down on Golden State Warriors' Curry after trying to block his shot in their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the rest of the legendary “pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” commercial…. Knicks 109, Warriors 105: Stephen Curry was the story… except for the part where his team didn’t win the game. That’s not on him — 54 points…

  13. Shannon Brown not happy about recent string of DNP-CDs

    Feb 26, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Shannon Brown, Jared Dudley

    The Suns are unquestionably in a rebuilding mode, and after trying (but mostly failing) to win games during the first half of the season by putting the players on the floor who would give them the best chance to do so, the team is now focused on the future and developing its young talent. That…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Hot hot Heat move back to top spot

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  15. Andrei Kirilenko bows out of qualifying, next Olympics for Russia

    Feb 22, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Russian forward Andrey Kirilenko scores

    Russia brought a strong team to London — led by Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved, with the very respected Dave Blatt as coach, the Russians took home the bronze medal. But they are going to have a very different team in Rio. First Blatt left the team and now Kirilenko is saying he is going…

  16. Why no blockbusters at NBA trade deadline? Here are three reasons.

    Feb 21, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The narrative of the NBA Trade Deadline 2013 is going to be that it was a dud. Fans seemed to think the Lakers were going to trade Dwight Howard. Or the Celtics were going to blow it up and trade Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The fans expected blockbusters and some of the national media…

  17. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  18. Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick traded to the Milwaukee Bucks

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Bobcats Magic Basketball

    There were plenty of rumblings about Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith going to Milwaukee in a blockbuster three-team deal with Orlando, but that trade died when Atlanta reportedly pulled out of the deal. That trade falling apart didn’t deter the Bucks from acquiring a piece to help them in their playoff push, however. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  20. Jeremy Lin: “I don’t even want to play tonight” after trade

    Feb 21, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets

    You would think after all he bounced around before breaking out last season in New York, then having to go through a free agency decision process, Jeremy Lin would be used to the sometimes cruel business of the NBA. Nope. When the Rockets traded Patrick Patterson, Cole Aldrich, Marcus Morris and Toney Douglas it hit…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were calling 9-1-1 then asking police to bring you some cigarettes….

  23. Three Stars of the Night: Harden’s Revenge Game

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:30 AM EDT

    James Harden

    On a night where trade talk dominated the news, James Harden served up a reminder that there’s an awful lot that must be considered when making a deal. Who knows how much it mattered to Oklahoma City at the time, but trading James Harden to a perennially competitive Western Conference foe badly in need of such…

    Josh Smith

    It is now just a little less than 13 hours until the NBA trade deadline and we have had all of one whopping trade. Which means it’s going to be a very busy Thursday… probably. There are going to be deals, guys we expect to get dealt will get dealt, but there may be fewer…

    Marcus Morris, after being traded to the Suns on Wednesday, caught up with CSNHouston and said he “shed a tear or two” when he first got news he was headed out of town. It wasn’t so much the fact that Morris, in the middle of his second season with the Rockets, was all that attached…
