SB Nation Reacts: Rockets fan confidence remains high and a question about Luka

POOL PHOTOS-USA TODAY Sports What did the voters have to say this week? This week’s edition of SB Nation Reacts has our Houston Rockets weekly fan confidence rating, but we also have some interesting national questions this week. First thing’s first, however, and here’s our weekly fan confidence poll. As you can see, Rockets fan confidence continues to rise despite all of the losing. The team continues to showcase some of the young talent they have to build off of, and Kelly Olynyk has been a revelation despite Rafael Stone taking some heat when he...

Rockets put up fight but fall to Pacers 132-124

POOL PHOTOS-USA TODAY Sports The Rockets fell behind early and came back late, but it wasn’t enough. As predicted in the game thread, the Houston Rockets lost this one. But as also predicted in the game thread, they were also fun to watch, played hard until the end, and had some top-notch performers that made the game interesting despite the team’s 41st loss of the season, 132-124 to the Indiana Pacers. Despite falling down big in the first half, going into the break with a 20-point deficit, the Rockets continued to have no quit in them, winning both the third and...

Indiana sends Houston to 4th straight loss, 132-124

HOUSTON (AP) — Caris LeVert scored 27 points, Domantas Sabonis added 22 and Malcolm Brogdon fell just short of a triple-double as the Indiana Pacers beat the Houston Rockets 132-124 on Wednesday night. LeVert was involved in the blockbuster January trade that sent James Harden from Houston to Brooklyn and Victor Oladipo from Indiana to Houston. While Oladipo struggled during his brief tenure in Houston, LeVert has starred with the Pacers, scoring at least 20 points in five of his last seven games. Sabonis was dominant in the paint, making 10 of 18 shots from the field while also grabbing 11...

Armoni Brooks’ career performance against the Suns was a testament to a long journey

Armoni Brooks’ career performance against the Suns was a testament to a long journey

Photo by Juan Ocampo/NBAE via Armoni Brooks’ career-high 14 points in a loss for the Houston Rockets was nearly two years in the making after going undrafted in 2019.  Stephen Silas told Armoni Brooks to always stay ready. Stay locked-in. And to stay focused. So when the right opportunity presents itself, you are prepared to make the most of it. Brooks made a substitution for Kelly Olynyk with 2:26 left in the third quarter. The game appeared to be all but over, with the Houston Rockets trailing 99-83 to the Phoenix Suns. In the final 14 minutes of the game, Brooks...

Rockets vs. Pacers game preview: Hakeem vs. Reggie, it is not

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports The Rockets return home from a brutal three-game road trip to take on the Indiana Pacers in a makeup contest that required rescheduling due to the winter storm back in February. The Rockets lost to the Pacers earlier this year. It was an odd time when James Harden was still on the team. The Pacers are 25-27 (and playing the Los Angeles Clippers as I type this) and are comfortably situated in the play-in picture in the Eastern Conference. A good finishing kick could see Indiana finish in the top 8 (and get homecourt in those play-in...

Phoenix sweeps season series as Rockets fall to Suns

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports A record-setting night for the Suns resulted in the Houston Rockets extending their losing streak to three. Despite once trailing the Phoenix Suns by as many as 24 points, the Houston Rockets fought hard in an attempt to stage an improbable second-half comeback. Houston outscored Phoenix 62-45 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as the Rockets sustained a 126-120 loss to the Suns, Monday Night, inside Phoenix Suns Arena. With the loss, the Rockets dropped their third consecutive game, with the Suns sweeping their three-game season...

Suns hit record-tying 18 3s in half, beat Rockets 126-120

PHOENIX (AP) — Jae Crowder scored 26 points, Devin Booker added 24 and the Phoenix Suns tied an NBA record with 18 3-pointers in the first half on the way to a 126-120 victory over the Houston Rockets on Monday night. The long balls came in bunches for both teams in this contest, which at times resembled a game of H-O-R-S-E. The Suns finished with a franchise-record 25 3-pointers and the Rockets added 17. The combined total of 42 3s was one shy of an NBA record. The Suns jumped out to an 81-58 lead by halftime after making 18 of 24 (75%) 3s. Crowder was causing a big chunk of the damage,...

Rockets vs. Suns game preview: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Tank

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The Houston Rockets continue their West Coast time zone trip against the Phoenix Suns. It’s another difficult game in a schedule that does Houston a lot of favors in their quest for the tank. These teams just played last week, but a refresher is nice. The Suns are solidly in the second place in the West, 2.5 games back of Utah in first and 2 games ahead of the Clippers as of this writing (the Clips are playing Detroit as I write this so they will probably win that one). Chris Paul has been a real difference maker for the Suns. Even at...

Rockets fall to Warriors despite John Wall’s 30 point night

Photo by Daniel Shirey/ The Rockets drop their second game in as many nights. The Houston Rockets found themselves on the losing end of a basketball game for the second night in a row after falling to the Golden State Warriors. At least the Rockets were consistent, posting 109 points for the second night in a row. However, the opponents were slightly different, with the Clippers putting up 126 Friday night and the Warriors posting a meager 125 tonight. The Rockets did get John Wall back after he sat Friday night’s game in Los Angeles for injury management. He was...
