James Harden

  1. No drama in reunion, just easy Rockets win vs. Lakers (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    Wise move, NBA television executives, choosing to pull Wednesday night’s Lakers at Rockets game off the national broadcast (not that the Spurs/Mavs game that replaced turned out to be a thriller). There is no Kobe Bryant and the “Dwight Howard reunion” drama had played itself out long ago. This was simply another mid-season NBA game…

    You want Kobe Bryant to start in the All-Star Game… well, maybe not you personally, but people do. Like that guy in front of you in line at Starbucks this morning. Blame him. Fan voting has Kobe Bryant well out in front as a starting guard for the West in the 2014 All-Star Game. Chris…

    Knock his game if you want — although you have to admit it has taken a healthy step forward this season — but you have to know Jeremy Lin is one of the most popular players in the NBA. He is fourth in NBA All-Star voting for the Western Conference’s backcourt, with more votes than…

  4. NBA warns Lakers’ Jodie Meeks for flopping

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Lakers

    Jodie Meeks — you know, one of the few healthy guards the Lakers have left on the roster — has been officially warned by the league for flopping. As he should have been. You can see the play above — it’s late in the Lakers loss to Bucks New Year’s Eve and the Lakers were dreaming…

  5. Flopping: It’s not just for defenses anymore

    Jan 1, 2014, 7:01 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    You see it all the time in the NBA: A point guard comes off a pick and attacks the paint only to find the opposing team’s center there waiting for him cutting off the lane, so the guard pretty much charges into the big man, falls back, flails his arms as he throws up a…

  6. The Extra Pass: Changes coming in threes; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    If you’ve watched basketball this year and thought at some point, “Man, these teams sure are shooting a lot of threes”, you’re not alone. Firing up shots from behind the arc has become more of a standard practice for most NBA teams (except for good ol’ Memphis) and teams like the Phoenix Suns and Portland…

  7. Kevin Durant dunks over James Harden (VIDEO)

    Dec 30, 2013, 1:47 AM EDT

    James Harden, Kevin Durant

    It wasn’t a complete poster dunk because James Harden realized what was about to happen and slid to the side to get out of the way. Kevin Durant was bringing the ball up the court and just past before passing half court shifted from casual to Maserati and just blew by Chandler Parsons. Harden rotated…

    “It’s obvious. It was the refs tonight. I mean, eight against five. I mean, the game was, in the second half, (James Harden) is shooting a free throw every time. We out there playing hard.

    The Houston Rockets shot 40 free throws to the Memphis Grizzlies’ 20 in a Houston win Thursday, and Zach Randolph is not happy about it. Randolph, via ClutchFans.net: “It’s obvious.

  10. The Extra Pass: A big test for the Clippers; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Pressure reveals character, and the last minutes of the Clippers road matchup with Portland did just that. Down the stretch, both teams played perfectly to their strengths. The Blazers ran everything through LaMarcus Aldirdge (32 points) on the left block, surrounding him with three-point shooters and daring the Clippers to double. The Clippers, meanwhile, put the…

  11. Thursday night NBA grades: Teague, Aldridge play big in overtime

  13. Dwight Howard spent some real coin on teammates Christmas Day presents

    Dec 26, 2013, 12:21 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Houston Rockets

    I bet Kobe Bryant never got anything this nice from Dwight Howard. In the 146,385th sign that Howard is much happier in Houston than he was in Los Angeles, he put together this video of talking about his Christmas gifts for his teammates… admit it, you want to be one of his teammates right now.…

  14. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  15. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  16. Rockets look like a team figuring it all out in win over Spurs

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:57 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v San Antonio Spurs

    You don’t want to read too much into one regular season game, especially one in December. However the Rockets 111-98 win over host San Antonio had you asking a couple questions: 1) How good will Houston be if they can stay healthy and find some consistency? 2) Is San Antonio playing a step slow this…

  18. PBT Extra: Previewing Rockets at Spurs Christmas Day battle of Texas

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v San Antonio Spurs

    Dwight Howard (along with James Harden, who has a sprained ankle and could miss Wednesday’s game) have changed the dynamic in Houston. This is a good team now, one that could develop into a contender. Being a contender is still measured by how you fare against Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and the San Antonio Spurs.…

  19. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground?

    Dec 23, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

  21. Taj Gibson, Brandon Jennings get flopping warnings from league

    Dec 22, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    The league had a special Christmas greeting from Santa for the Bulls’ Taj Gibson and the Pistons’ Brandon Jennings: Stop flopping. Or you’re getting a lump of coal. Gibson got his for this play against the Cavaliers, and while it’s an embellishment doesn’t seem like it was as bad as some stuff that goes uncalled.…

  22. Patrick Beverley fractures hand, out up to six weeks

    Dec 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Patrick Beverley

    Patrick Beverley, relative to an average starting point guard, is not crucial to his team. He can run a decent offense, but James Harden handles the ball more for the Rockets. He can hawk the ball on defense, but Dwight Howard drive Houston on that end. So, this news isn’t the end of the world,…

    James Harden

    Early in the third quarter Sunday of what would become an ugly Rockets loss to the Kings, James Harden rolled his ankle on a play where he was fouled by Ben McLemore.
