Trevor Ariza 20 Points Full Highlights (5/11/2017)

Well, Trevor Ariza showed up I guess? He was the only Rocket who played acceptably from a box-score perspective as the Rockets got blown out by almost forty in an elimination game. If you take his 6-of-12 shooting out, the Rockets don’t even shoot 25% from the field for the game (16 of 65), are…

Patrick Beverley 20 Points Full Highlights (5/9/2017)

Patrick Beverley: does he play too much defense? Yes. If he didn’t play as much defense as he does, then the chances would be higher that this Rockets-Spurs series would just be a nonstop scoring exhibition. The Spurs have a potent offense when they’re allowed to run it the way they want, but with Beverley…

Eric Gordon 22 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (5/7/2017)

This is what happens when Eric Gordon makes a ton of threes like he’s supposed to. The Rockets’ opponent gets blown out. Eric Gordon three-pointers = blowout win for the Rockets. It’s that simple. Out of the fourteen games this season where Gordon made five or more threes, only one of them was a loss….

Bobby Brown 11 Points Full Highlights (5/7/2017)

Eleven points in five minutes? You know what I’m thinking because you’re thinking it too. Tracy McGrady. And Kobe. Combined. The only thing that would make this cooler (besides spiked death pits and a basketball made out of lava) is if Bobby Brown’s eleven points were part of some kind of heroic comeback by the…

Trevor Ariza 23 Points Full Highlights (5/1/2017)

The Rockets would have had a much easier time in their first round series against the Thunder if Trevor Ariza had been able to hit his three-pointers. He wasn’t the worst offender; Ryan Anderson made three of them the whole series just like Ariza did, but needed eight more attempts to get there. So there…

Eric Gordon 22 Points Full Highlights (4/19/2017)

Here’s the narrative that ESPN wants you to swallow like a nasty child taking some foul-tasting medicine: Harden has teammates who are actually good shooters (Gordon, Anderson, Williams) while Westbrook doesn’t (Grant, Roberson, Oladipo), so that’s why the Rockets are up 2-0 over the Thunder right now. That’s the official narrative that the collective NBA…

Patrick Beverley 21 Points Full Highlights (4/16/2017)

“So this is how you prepare for the game, huh?” Trevor Ariza asked his teammate Pat Beverley, as the former observed the latter sitting in a corner of the locker room, hunched over a notebook. “I’m releasing my emotions through the power of charcoal drawings,” Pat answered. “It helps me stay focused.” Trevor’s eyebrows went…

Clint Capela 22 Points/3 Blocks/7 Dunks Full Highlights (4/12/2017)

I’m pretty sure that the only way I could ever get the NBA highlight viewing populace at large to watch Clint Capela highlight videos would be to blatantly lie in the video title. I could either embellish the stats (16 dunks? 42 points? 13 blocks? 5 assists? any of those would be outlandish enough to…
