Posted on the Texans board, but just wanted to drop in to brag about getting Bill O'Brien's autograph for Xmas!

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

MDA with coach of the month and Harden with player of the month. Last time Rockets had a player and coach win in the same month was Hakeem and Rudy T in 1993.

I didn't notice this post before starting this thread!

I have been traveling out of country the past several days. I'm back now, but a bit jet-lagged, so I may or may not be active for tomorrow night's game. I'm feeling like the 3rd quarter 2015/2016 Rockets right now...

Couldn't find a good thread to add this to, so I chose this one

Houston got torn up by storms today and I work for a contracting company (obviously right now we'll focus on roofs, but we do anything y'all need)

If any of y'all in the houston area need anything (including Galveston and Baytown and basically anything within 2 hours of downtown or katy) pm me. I know everyone in Rosenberg has it tough now.

Sorry just thought I'd leave this here since I know getting repairs is tough and this was a pretty bad storm this morning

Sorry if you wana delete this E feel free

Is it my imagination, or didn't this guy play for the Rockets, and not the RGV, for a few games?

Am I thinking of someone else? Was it just preseason?

I'm enjoying the Bucks. The Raptors are a good team, but last night's beat down was oddly cathartic.

I'm not sure how people here feel about Kyle Lowry now, but with the way he has been playing this post season, it's gonna cost him a lot of money in the summer.

Worst NBA postseason I can remember in quite some time. Why even bother playing out either of these Conference Finals series? Just get to the Finals already so we can see who they rigged it for this year.

Smart money is on GSW, but maybe they want Lebron to get a back-to-back against the greatest team in the history of the universe, that would make for quite a story.

Go Astros.
We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

Oh, and put your damn mouthpiece back in.

Sorry, getting ready for the game tonight during which I will inevitably be screaming that to myself in my head repeatedly.

the 1995 rockets won 9 road games to win the championship. Will CLE or GSW tie or break that record this year?

CLE has won 6 road games so far and could win 7 if they win Game 5 at Boston
GSW has won 5 road games so far and could win 6 if they sweep San Antonio

So Cavs now have 7 road wins beating Boston tonight. They need to win twice at GSW to tie Rockets record or win 3 times there to win 10 road games and beat the 1995 record of 9 road wins. GSW can tie at 9 if they win all 3 games in Cleveland.

Cavs also erased a Rockets record of most 3's in a regular season game this year.
