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 […]

Warm up those vocal chords, it’s time for Dikembe Mutombo impersonations

Doing an impression of Dikembe Mutombo might sound easy enough, but most people end up sounding more like Cookie Monster. Lucky for us, his Rockets brethren have the impression down pat. Not bad, fellas; not bad. But we’re still kind of partial to the real deal. Links: [Awful Announcing]: The Rockets Imitate Dikembe Mutombo, Hilarity […]

Around the Rim: Houston’s Super Sweet 19

1. Movin’ on up The Rockets took another jab at their critics on Monday night by extending their win streak to 19 games with a 91-73 thumping of New Jersey. Tracy McGrady scored 19 points as he continues to pilot his team toward the playoffs despite flying without a co-captain on the floor. Houston is […]

Around the Rim: LeBron lights up the Garden

1. Battling it out Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are running neck-and-neck down the final stretch as they both try to grab their first regular season MVP trophy. Currently, James has a slight advantage, but that is only because he was the last one to play. The King almost racked up a wicked triple-double against […]

Around the Rim: Utah’s Most Wanted

1. Naughty, naughty Nowitzki Dirk Nowitzki’s frustrations were evident just five minutes into the game. And they were equally obvious by the time the final buzzer sounded in Utah’s 116-110 home victory over the Mavericks. With Big D down 19-6 in the opening minutes of the game, Dirk’s dark side came out as he took […]

Around the Rim: Running over the competition

1. MVP? Remember back when Andrew Bynum got injured and everyone said the Lakers were doomed to fall apart without their man in the middle? Well, that was 24 games ago and since then all Los Angeles has done is surge to the top of the West by winning 14 of their last 16 games, […]

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: Cleveland rocks the trade deadline

1. Wheeling and dealing LeBron James has been begging for some help for quite a while now and on Thursday, he finally got it; just not on offense. The Cavs were part of a three-team, 11-player trade right before the deadline, acquiring Ben Wallace, Joe Smith and a 2nd-round draft pick from the Bulls, along […]
