The Rockets mascot goes on a scaring spree

Normally, when bears attack it ends with blood, guts and the detachment of body parts. However, when the Houston Rockets’ mascot attacks, it ends with laughter. For us, that is. See more funny videos at CollegeHumor

Around the Rim: T-Mac bounces back

1. No rocky road for the Rockets Everyone figured the Jazz would trot into the second round once they made it back home after building a 2-0 series advantage in Houston. Everyone, that is, except the Rockets. Since the final buzzer of the second game sounded, Tracy McGrady has gone through the ringer, being called […]

Around the Rim: From cursed to first

1. Double deuce Los Angeles was without Pau Gasol on Sunday afternoon, but Houston didn’t feel any mercy for the undermanned Lakers, winning its 10th straight game without center Yao Ming by beating LA 104-92. The Rockets used a 35-21 advantage in the second quarter to propel them to a 22nd consecutive victory while simultaneously […]

Around the Rim: Up, up and away!

1. Rockets keep rolling Despite winning their 20th consecutive game against Atlanta on Wednesday, the Rockets showed signs of slippage along the way. Houston managed to score just 32 points in the first half of last night’s game, but the Hawks couldn’t capitalize on their sorry opening half and lost 83-75. Tracy McGrady led the […]

Around the Rim: Houston: we have a serious problem…or maybe not

1. Rockets win game, but lose in the long run Yao Ming was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot yesterday, rendering him useless for the rest of the regular season and the playoffs. This is just about the worst news possible for Tracy McGrady as he will most likely go another season without […]

No finger-wagging here; welcome back Dik’!

We know Houston is totally bummed about losing Yao Ming for the season, but one good great thing to come out of the injury is Dikembe Mutombo is finally getting some face time again. Links: [Awful Announcing]: Stan Van Gundy, Jeff Van Gundy, Peanut Brittle!

Around the Rim: Eyeing a comeback

1. Rockets taking off without McGrady The Rockets are finally getting used to playing without Tracy McGrady. In fact, Houston won their third consecutive game by beating Washing 92-84 on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, T-Mac might be back in uniform for Friday’s game at home against the Timberwolves after being sidelined since Dec. 23. Hopefully for […]

Around the Rim: Wow-wee, Yao, Yi!

Yup, it’s that big. 1. Big players, big audience The most anticipated game in the world will go down tonight as two of the league’s giants match-up. To Americans it’s the Rockets and the Bucks, but to the Chinese it’s Yao Ming vs. Yi Jianlian. The two sensations from China go head-to-head for the first […]
