    Astros win again... Rockets look to bounce back in game 2!

    in Sports

    The NBA Playoffs are in full swing with both conference finals series underway it is also baseball season. If you're a Houstonian or at least a Houston sports fan, this is an unusal May for the home crowd. The Astros are in first place in the AL-West and the Rockets are in the Western Confernce Finals! Stros manager A. J. Hinch talk about the  9-game home stand and their 6-1 victory over the Oakland A's befoe they hit road. The Rockets are the underdogs as they take on the Golden State Warriors, but don't tell them that. Although they lost game one in the Bay Area, they were in it until the very end. Dwight Howard was hobbled by an early knee injury he suffered in a collision with teammate Josh Smith and is questioanble for game two. We'll take a look at what happened in game one and what needs to happen in game two for the Rockets to even the series. And of course Deflate-gate continues to be a 'thing'. Patriots owner Robert Kraft declared his allegiance to the 'good of the game' at the owners meeting in San Francisco saying he wouldn't fight the penalites levied against his team. Speaking of the owner's meetings... what else are they talking about at this week's gathering?

    PODCAST: What's wrong with the Rockets?

    in Basketball

    The Rockets haven't lost three straight games all year. But if they're going to keep that streak alive in Tuesday's Game 5 -- and with it, their season -- they're going to have to overcome a tidal wave of momentum in favor of the Clippers.


    It's not just that the Clippers lead the series, 3-1. It's that they're doing it in dominating fashion. In their weekend romps, the Clippers became the first team since the 2001 Lakers to win back-to-back games in a playoff series by at least 25 points.


    Our Ben DuBose is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston (Sports Radio 610) on the Red & Orange Report podcast to break down how the Clippers have done it, starting with an MVP performance from Blake Griffin. They also examine where things have gone wrong for the Rockets, like being torched by an opposing power forward for a second consecutive postseason. Is Terrence Jones on the hot seat, and might things be different if Donatas Motiejunas were healthy?


    Other topics explored:



    Was Chris Paul's absence a blessing in disguise for the Clippers, given the added minutes and confidence it gave to Austin Rivers?
    With James Harden only taking 12 shots in Game 4 despite shooting well on the series (45 percent on FGs, 44 percent on three-point attempts), should he be more aggressive and shoot more?
    Is Hack-a-DeAndre Jordan a worthwhile strategy for the Rockets, considering that it negates transition?
    Does poor play in this series by Corey Brewer and Josh Smith impact Houston's likelihood of re-signing them this summer?


    Take a listen.

    Michael Scotto discusses Kobe Bryant, the Knicks and the Rockets

    in Basketball

    Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers are used to contending for championships, but through five games the team is tied with the Philadelphia 76ers (0-6) for the fewest wins in the league -- zero.


    Bryant’s disdain for losing and the struggles of the Lakers prompted an interesting question: Would the Lakers and Knicks benefit from a trade involving Bryant?


    New York has Phil Jackson, the Triangle offense and cap space to absorb Bryant’s contract and the Lakers aren’t going to contend this season with or without the team’s longtime superstar.


    Conversely, the Houston Rockets were undefeated until Saturday night after some experts believed the team would take a step back with the loss of Chandler Parsons and free agency addition of Trevor Ariza.


    In the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers have gotten off to a slow start (2-3) and not dominated out of the gate as many predicted.


    With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops joined Yahoo! Sports Radio to discuss the struggles of the Lakers and Cavaliers, the rumors surrounding Bryant and how James Harden and Dwight Howard have carried the Rockets.

    How the Rockets pulled off one of the greatest playoff comebacks ever

    in Basketball

    With 14 minutes left, Game 6 felt just like the two in Los Angeles before it. The Rockets were close at the half, trailing by just two, but found themselves again blitzed in the third quarter, with the Clippers pushing the 64-62 edge to 89-70.


    In the prior two games, the Rockets folded and lost by 25+ points. This time? They answered with a stunning 49-18 counter-punch to close the game and tie the series, sending it back to Houston for a decisive Game 7.


    The wildest part? MVP runner-up James Harden wasn't even playing, making it one of the more improbable and remarkable in-game turnarounds in NBA playoff history.


    Our Ben DuBose is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston (Sports Radio 610) and the Red & Orange Report podcast to dissect just how it went down.


    Topics explored:



    The brilliance of Kevin McHale's in-game adjustments
    Why inserting Josh Smith for Terrence Jones as a starter helped both players
    The importance of Dwight Howard dominating DeAndre Jordan on the glass
    The sudden disappearance of the Clippers' bench
