Top Rockets News

  • Rockets' P.J. Tucker: Strong finish to the season

    Tucker had 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 45 minutes during Friday's 118-113 loss to Golden State.

    Tucker rounded out the series loss to the Warriors with another impressive performance. Outside of James Harden, Tucker has arguably been the Rockets most consistent player through the playoffs and certainly left it all out on the floor every night. This was a tough loss for the Rockets who went into the final quarter with a lead, only to see Steph Curry dominate down the stretch. Tucker should maintain a similar role moving forward despite the fact the Rockets could look to make some changes over the off-season.

  • Rockets' Chris Paul: Double-doubles in tough home loss

    Paul ended with 27 points (11-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, and six assists in 38 minutes during Friday's 118-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Paul had his best game of the playoffs but it was to no avail as the Rockets were bundled out of the playoffs in six games. The Rockets blew a golden opportunity to force a Game 7 despite the best efforts of Paul. It will certainly be viewed as another lost season for the Rockets and with Paul still owed a lot of money over the next few seasons, one has to wonder where their mindset will be heading into the 2019-20 campaign. Paul is not getting any younger and was once again impacted by a number of issues across the season. The Rockets could indeed look at trying to trade a number of players, however, Paul is unlikely to be one of those given his unfavorable contract.

  • Rockets' James Harden: Leads all scorers in season finale

    Harden tallied 35 points (11-25 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 7-12 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, and four steals in 39 minutes during Friday's 118-113 loss to the Warriors.

    The Rockets were eliminated by the Warriors once again Friday despite a game-high 35 points by Harden. It was certainly a tough loss for the Rockets to swallow given the Warriors were without Kevin Durant (calf). It is the second straight season in which the Rockets have been knocked out by the Warriors on their own home floor. On a personal note, Harden is yet to establish himself as a clutch playoff performer in terms of a statement series victory. He will be likely battling for the leagues MVP award once again but that will come as little solace for what could have been a championship season.
