Rockets’ hunt for a wing could lead them to Wesley Matthews

The Dream Shake (ColinConnors) — If Brandon Knight and first-round pick don’t net a wing on the trade market, Wesley Matthews as a buyout candidate makes too much sense.

Rockets dominate, slip, recover and bumble their way to win over Raptors.

The Dream Shake (Xiane) — A great effort with another weak ending. One could be forgiven for thinking this game would be a blowout. One would probably assume the wide margin would be in favor of the Toronto Raptors , the team with the best record in the East, starting a (rather) well-rested Kawhi Leonard . That’s not how the game began, however, with the Rockets jumping all over the Raptors and leading by 33-20...

Houston Rockets vs. Toronto Raptors game preview

The Dream Shake (ak2themax) — It must be nice to get games off to rest, rather than to recover from injuries. Toronto boasts one of the deepest teams in the NBA, and it has allowed them to give stars Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry rest days. Leonard is coming off three straight games of “DNP-Rest.” Of course, he’ll be back tonight to try to strengthen his MVP candidacy by guarding James Harden. After all, his most...

Rockets edge Knicks behind James Harden’s 61 points

The Dream Shake (Darren Yuvan) — This was almost a bad loss, but 61 from The Beard got it done.

Houston Rockets vs. New York Knicks game preview

The Dream Shake (ak2themax) — For the first time in forever a long time, the Rockets are playing a team that they 100% should beat.

Kristaps Porzingis tore his ACL last season in February and remains out. While it’s probably...

Houston’s situation may be bad, but there’s no need to panic

The Dream Shake (Conrad Garcia) — This is a storm that the Rockets can weather. Remember at the end of Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos appears in Wakanda and just starts flipping boys like pancakes? He absolutely tears through everyone, gets chopped by Thor, and then snaps his fingers and wipes out half the universe? Well, there’s that part afterward where everyone’s confused, and T’Challa doesn’t just look around like...

The 2019 Preview Guy Mailbag

The Dream Shake (ak2themax) — The Preview Guy answers some mail and previews tonight’s Houston Rockets-Denver Nuggets matchup Way back in 2012 , I came up with my own idea to steal Bill Simmons’s idea of a reader mailbag. Instead of just a basic preview with matchups and a boring prediction, I made up questions and answered them as Simmons would, trying to match his idiosyncrasies. I like to think I succeeded, but...
