Upper Dekker

It's almost baseball season, so let's start pulling in the puns! I just wanted to be sure everyone knew that I was going for that use-case of the title, not what you'd find in urban dictionary...

Houston Rockets vs. Milwaukee Bucks game preview

The Rockets look to build on their convincing win in Memphis when they head to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. Most of the time, you get a solid break between opponents. Sure, home-and-homes exist, but they’re fairly rare. The Rockets and Bucks met just a few days ago, with Houston riding an impressive second quarter run to a victory. Still, the Rockets had no answer for Giannis...

The Rockets have flown around the world twice, played most games in the NBA

The schedule hand dealt to the Rockets has been a bust. After Friday night's Houston Rockets loss to the Golden State Warriors, head coach Mike D'Antoni took the NBA schedule makers to task.

WATCH: Harden helps woman celebrate her 100th birthday

Houston Rockets guard James Harden does a little bit of everything. He can score. He can dish the rock. He can rebound. He also sports a tremendously distinct facial hair program that sets him apart from the rest. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that Harden can also make a 100-year-old fan in the stands feel like she’s on the top of the world. That’s amazing. Good on Harden...

Rockets GM Daryl Morey had no idea James Harden would become so good

There’s a strong argument to be made that James Harden is one of the five best players in the NBA today. Back in 2012, the Houston Rockets took a chance on the 23-year-old guard, who at the time was an immensely talented sixth man for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Rockets were prepared to build their team around him, and have since gained plaudits for playing a fairly modest...

Durant: Harden could have thrived as Thunder's sixth man

Kevin Durant briefly allowed himself a look back, and he thinks there were a few chapters left to be written about Oklahoma City’s former Big Three. Durant told Anthony Slater of the Mercury News that he believes James Harden could have thrived in a sixth man role with the Thunder had he not been traded to Houston. “I think he’d have stayed in that role. I think so,” Durant...

Are The Houston Rockets For Real? (Hint: Yes)

We’ve entered the Daryl Morey Experience. After a year of disappointment, the Houston Rockets GM just watched his team rattle off 10 straight wins, only succumbing this past Wednesday to the always brilliant Spurs. Analytics gurus must be stoked: 78% of Houston’s shots are either threes, layups, or dunks – by far the highest number in the league. It’s honestly a bit ridiculous...
