Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin & James Harden Made us Forget About Dwight Howard

Posted on 20 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

The thing about the Houston Rockets we love to dissect and focus on more than anything is the way James Harden dominates this team, maybe a bit too much, and what does it mean for Jeremy Lin. But this season was also about Dwight Howard finding a comfort zone in the NBA once again, and although he isn’t the main face of the team and isn’t running the show, it’s safe to say he made the right choice through the free agency bonanza of last summer.

NBA Playoffs – Blazers vs Rockets Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

If there’s one series that going to set itself apart from the others when it comes to scoring and very little defense, it’s going to be the one between the Houston Rockets and the Portland Trail Blazers. James Harden and Dwight Howard on one end, Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge on the other, while Jeremy Lin might get his chance to shine in a very open kind of style that most likely will be present throughout the series.

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Waiting Behind James Harden & Patrick Beverley

Posted on 17 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

One thing that usually happens in the playoffs is team’s rotation getting shorter, and key players getting even more minutes than in the regular season. Jeremy Lin is a backup guard for the Houston Rockets, and although he can be very useful, he won’t be features as much compared to James Harden and Patrick Beverley, partially because Kevin McHale simply doesn’t believe in him.

Houston Rockets – Dwight Howard Matters More Than Jeremy Lin & James Harden This Time

Posted on 15 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

Even though we love to focus on the “power struggles” between James Harden hero ball and Jeremy Lin-style basketball, the 104-98 win for the Houston Rockets over the San Antonio Spurs was mostly about Dwight Howard and the front court dominating to complete a four-game sweep in the regular season over the team with the best record in the N More

Houston Rockets – James Harden Gets Credit Jeremy Lin Deserves Too

Posted on 13 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

Like in most comebacks from the Houston Rockets this season, most of the attention and credit went to James Harden. There’s no doubt that his ability to create something out of nothing deserves some sort of applause but the downside of this happens to be ignoring everyone else who helped, and mainly Jeremy Lin with a fantastic fourth quarter that once again will be pushed down the pecking order, just like Kevin McHale likes it.

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Under Used, James Harden Does Too Much

Posted on 12 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

The two stories to look at coming out of the 112-110 Minnesota Timberwolves win over the Houston Rockets? Corey Brewer scoring 51 points in a game that’s probably going to remain his career high, while Kevin McHale continues to trust only James Harden at the moment, resulting in a botched up final play, and continuing to ignore Jeremy Lin.

Houston Rockets – James Harden is Embarrassing & Jeremy Lin Suffers For it

Posted on 10 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

This isn’t what a team thinking about challenging for the title looks like, and a “superstar” like James Harden can’t be playing this badly and keep on doing the same thing as the Houston Rockets lose 123-116 to the Denver Nuggets, as Jeremy Lin was the only bright spot from the starting lineup that was benched for most of the fourth quarter.

Houston Rockets – James Harden on Fire, Jeremy Lin a Little Less

Posted on 9 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

There was never going to be a lot of defense as the Houston Rockets clashed with the Los Angeles Lakers, and no surprises whatsoever happened with the Rockets winning 145-130 with an excellent performance from both James Harden and Terrence Jones while Jeremy Lin was a bit more in the background, not taking advantage of not getting enough of a chance to put up the big numbers almost everyone seemed to do against the Lakers.
