In the back of the too-hot interior of the food truck, a too-tall man was putting the finishing touches on another large batch of carnitas. With each customer that appeared at the window, he took a quick glance before returning to his culinary artistry. The spot in front of the Staples Center was coveted among…

James Harden All 378 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Three-ilation Part I)

James Harden is notable for many things: his stepback three-pointer that looks like a travel. His ability to enrage opposing fanbases with uncanny foul-drawing ability. The fact that Sam Presti deemed his value in a trade to be equivalent to that of Kevin Martin. That funny commercial where he sang about taking his shirt off…

P.J. Tucker 15 Points Full Highlights (5/10/2019)

The Rockets season is over. This isn’t as tragic as the way they lost last year, which was a top-five tragic occurrence in the NBA ever, but it still must be sad for Houston fans. They just kind of sputtered out, even playing at home in an elimination game with the opposing team missing its…

P.J. Tucker 17 Points Full Highlights (5/6/2019)

With a little bit of help from the basketball bros (so named because their heads are the most basketball-shaped in the whole league), P.J. Tucker and Eric Gordon, the Rockets have now pulled even with the Warriors in this series. Having an MVP on your team is great, and having an all-time great PG on…

Eric Gordon 30 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (5/4/2019)

First off, sorry about not getting this description up quicker. I was looking at Eric Gordon’s draft class and noticed that Joe Alexander was selected right after him, and that got me thinking about how much of a bust that dude was and I started getting really sad. That era of the Bucks is long…

Eric Gordon 27 Points Full Highlights (4/28/2019)

Eric Gordon solidified his reputation as “not even a great three-point shooter (despite what his volume would seem to indicate)” by going four of thirteen on three-pointers this game. The past few seasons, he’s been a slightly above-average three-point shooter, but, being on D’Antoni-coached teams, he’s had a green light that’s so green that it…

Eric Gordon 26 Points/8 Threes Full Highlights (4/7/2019)

Eric Gordon has been extremely streaky from the three-point line this season. He’s also been very streaky in the past, but this year, the streaks tend to be more often in the negative direction than the positive direction. For every game where he shoots a high volume of three-pointers on a high percentage (such as…

Danuel House 19 Points/2 Dunks Full Highlights (4/2/2019)

As much as I would love to make a Danuel House dunkilation at the end of the regular season, he’s going to have to step up his dunking game significantly in the Rockets’ final four games if he wants that to happen. As of this writing, he has twelve dunks on the season. I’m fairly…
