K.J. Martin to check in after the time out. Rockets offense OK with the two bigs — 6 of 11 shooting, 2 of 4 from deep — but have to stick with drive-and-kick including kicking pass back out after drives. Had 4 TOs in first 3 1/2 minutes, settled down since. – 7:20 PM

Herb Jones finding his comfort zone on offense is turning into a major storyline for this team moving forward. – 7:16 PM

It was initially put out in our Courtside Box that Brooks would start, but he will come off the bench.

Feel like both guys could give a solid 15-20 minutes tonight if needed. – 5:57 PM

Willie Green on Brandon Ingram: “When he’s just making the simple plays and getting in the paint and finding his teammates, our team just plays with joy and finds a renewed energy. It’s what we rely on him to do, and he has been doing a great job of it.” – 5:48 PM

A young @marioelie1 of the Warriors being defended by the Rockets @VernonMaxwell11 in 1991. Mario, a restricted free agent, signed with the Blazers the next year. Houston sent a 2nd round pick to Portland for Elie in 1993. The rest is history. pic.twitter.com/rzqykVFkpG5:03 PM

#Texans have 44 net passing yards today. Had just 61 net passing yds vs Bills. Remarkably as an expansion team in 2002, Houston had 5 games w/ < 100 net passing yds, including their 2nd game in franchise history, they lost to the Chargers that day & had 29 net passing yds. – 3:46 PM

End of the 1stQ in Houston. For the #Texans:

0 – points
Colts lead 7-0. – 1:38 PM

#Texans have turned it over on both offensive possessions, but the Colts miss a 34-yd FG after the 2nd turnover, so the deficit for Houston remains 7-0. – 1:26 PM
