NBA Playoffs Throwback: Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trailblazers, 2009 Western Conference first round, game 2

Brandon Roy dizzies defenders Shane Battier and Ron Artest scoring 42 points to help Portland tie up the series 1-1. Houston bounced back to eventually win the series in six games but Artest would later say in an interview with Craig Sager that Brandon Roy is the best two-guard he has ever defended.

As good as he is right now, he’s still very raw. But he has all the tools so I’m like a kid in a candy store.

Dwight Howard and James Harden are big Ronnie James Dio fans.

I haven’t seen him on the bench. I haven’t played against him so I’m not worried about guys that’s not even in our series.
— Kevin Durant, who has no time for Royce White’s trash talk. Jordan Crawford has yet to weigh in.

Chandler Parsons will leave you hanging, and uses only the softest conditioner on his hair.

Sounds like a personal problem.

NBA Playoffs throwback: Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Seattle Supersonics, 1993, Game 7, Western Conference semifinals.

Way back in ‘93 Robert Horry showed flashes of his clutch-gene hitting this go ahead jumper with 0 seconds left on the shot clock and only 32 seconds remaining in the game. Unfortunately for Big Bob, the heroics don’t pay off as Seattle tied the game and won it in overtime. The Sonics advanced only to lose to Barkley’s Phoenix Suns in the Conference Finals.

The remix to this matchup begins tonight in Oklahoma City at 9:30pm EST on TNT.

James Harden and the Houston Rockets tied an NBA record with 23 three-points in a blowout win over the Warriors. At the end of three quarters, the Rockets were 18-27 from long-range, but shot “only” 5-13 the rest of the way. For the game, they were 57% on three-pointers, but only 45% on twos - they made as many three-point shots as two-point shots. Jeremy Lin made five, James Harden and Chandler Parsons each hit four, and even Donatas Motiejunas made one, the fourth of his career.
The hero for Golden State, if a 140-109 loss can have a hero, was Draymond Green. When Patrick Beverley tried to put up the record-setting three with 35 seconds left, Green knocked him down, earning an ejection, but also the respect of his peers. On a night where most of the Warriors didn’t show up at all, Green showed some real pride. The White Chris Webber should offer to pay his fine.

Dunking on yooooouuuu… 

The Chandler Parsons Project

James Harden’s debut as a Rocket:
37 points, 6 rebounds, 12 assists, 4 steals, and 1 block while shooting over 50% from the field. 
If the Oklahoma City Thunder were The Misfits, then James Harden is now entering his Samhain period (sorry had to throw a last minute Halloween reference somehow but the comparison kinda fits).

I saw the news that Lin was going to the Rockets, looked up his number and posted the shirt on my site.
