Kevin Garnett Ejected After Headbutting Dwight Howard

Kevin Garnett Ejected After Headbutting Dwight Howard

Elsa/Getty Images(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) -- Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard were battling for position under the basket in the first quarter Monday night -- perhaps are little too hard -- and Garnett ended up getting ejected for being literally hard-headed.

Garnett took exception to Howard's pushing and shoving and bounced the ball off of the Rocket's center's head. With just under eight minutes to go in the first quarter, the two began to exchange words and Garnett took the crown of his head to Howard's jaw.

The NBA league office will review the incident and hand down any disciplinary action if it is deemed necessary.

Back to the action on the court: James Harden lit up the Nets defense as he put up 30 points. Howard would add eight points and five rebounds.

Houston would go on to win the game 113-99.

Report: Rockets Acquire Corey Brewer

Report: Rockets Acquire Corey Brewer

National Basketball Association(HOUSTON, Tx.) -- The Houston Rockets are adding some much needed depth to their bench.

Corey Brewer has been traded to the Houston Rockets from the Minnesota Timberwolves, Friday, according to Yahoo Sports.

 The Timberwolves will receive guard Troy Daniels as well as two second round draft picks - one via Sacramento.

Houston is currently 18th in scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 99.8 points per game.  Their bench is also last in the NBA with 21.4 points per game.

Brewer will likely improve those numbers as he is averaging 10.5 points per game this season and shooting 41.8% from the field.

Dwight Howard Back on the Court for the Rockets

Dwight Howard Back on the Court for the Rockets

Bob Levey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After an 11 game absence, Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard will make his return to the court Saturday night against the Denver Nuggets.

Howard was out of action after dealing with knee soreness. While the injury wasn't considered too serious, the team felt it was best to hold him out until he felt healthy enough to play at his All-Star level.

He underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy to help restore the cartilage in his knee, and is feeling like his old self again.

"I'm just thankful to be back out there," Howard said. "Nobody wants to sit on the bench in a suit and watch his team play. You want to get out there in the action. But I'm happy to be back out there, thankful. I thank God for just allowing me to be able to play again. I'm just happy to play again. That's the big thing."

The Rockets haven't missed a beat without Howard. The team sits at 17-5 heading into Saturday, which is the third-best record in the NBA.

The 29-year-old Howard is averaging 18.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.

Lakers Win Consecutive Games for First Time This Year

Lakers Win Consecutive Games for First Time This Year

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- For the first time in the 2014-15 season, the Los Angeles Lakers won consecutive games with a 98-92 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Kobe Bryant led the way with 29 points, seven assists, and five rebounds for the Lakers (3-9).

"Look, we had a bad start," Bryant said. "Are we a 3-9 team? No. We're a much better team than that. We got off to a really bad start, but we'll (get better)."

Trailing by four with less than a minute to play, Los Angeles used a 7-1 run to take a 94-92 lead and pick up the victory. Nick Young scored 16 points in just his second game of the season, scoring 17 in Tuesday night's win. Young added a pair of free throws late to seal the win.

The Rockets (9-3) were playing without center Dwight Howard who missed the game with a knee injury. James Harden paced Houston with 24 points while three other players scored in double figures. Despite shooting 15-of-38 from beyond the arc, the Rockets turned the ball over 17 times and were out-rebounded 47-38 in the loss.

It was the first meeting between the Western Conference foes after Houston's opening night win in Los Angeles. That contest featured a small spat between Howard and Bryant, heightening the drama going into Wednesday's game.

Mavericks’ Rick Carlisle Apologizes for Calling Out Chandler Parsons

Mavericks’ Rick Carlisle Apologizes for Calling Out Chandler Parsons

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- A couple of days after criticizing newly-signed forward Chandler Parsons for his weight and conditioning, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle has apologized for his comments.

"An increase of 18 to 20 pounds is just too much," Carlisle said Friday night. "We talked about it today. We talk about it a lot. He'll get there, but he looked tired out there and a little heavy-legged, and the extra 7 or 8 pounds aren't helping."

Carlisle realized he was wrong to publicly criticize Parsons, and promptly apologized.

"It was unfair and inappropriate to single out Chandler Parsons after the game Friday night," Carlisle wrote in a statement issued Sunday afternoon. "I have apologized to him and the entire team for this error in judgment. Not only is Chandler Parsons one of our best players, he is also one of our hardest working players and the kind of high-character person we strive to bring to our city and franchise."

Parsons, who signed a three-year deal with the Mavericks this past summer worth $46 million, says he has moved on from the incident.

"It just shows what kind of guy he is," Parsons said of Carlisle's apology. "We're in this together. Everybody makes mistakes, and he came to me as a man. We have a great relationship. It's in the past, and we're going to move forward. It's over with."

Last season with the Houston Rockets, Parsons averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game.

Rockets Acquire G Jason Terry from Kings

Rockets Acquire G Jason Terry from Kings

Thomas Northcut/Thinkstock(HOUSTON) -- The Sacramento Kings dealt guard Jason Terry and draft picks to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday for forward Alonzo Gee and guard Scotty Hopson.

In 35 games with the Brooklyn Nets last season, Terry averaged 4.5 points and 1.6 assists per game. He was dealt to the Kings along with forward Reggie Evans on Feb. 19 for guard Marcus Thornton.  Terry did not appear in a game with Sacramento due to knee issues. The 15-year veteran is second among active players with 1,950 three-pointers.

The Rockets acquired Gee and Hopson in a three-team trade with the Washington Wizards and New Orleans Pelicans during this offseason that also included forward Trevor Ariza.

ESPN: Kings Sending Guard Jason Terry to the Rockets

ESPN: Kings Sending Guard Jason Terry to the Rockets

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- He may not be the player he used to be, but the Houston Rockets are rolling the dice on veteran guard Jason Terry. ESPN reports that the Sacramento Kings will send Terry to Houston.

While the deal is not yet officially completed, the Rockets will also receive two second-round draft picks from the Kings while they will send guard/forward Alonzo Gee to Sacramento.

The 36-year-old Terry began last season with the Brooklyn Nets but wound up being traded to the Kings right before the trade deadline. Because he was recovering from a knee injury, Terry never suited up for the Kings during his brief tenure there.

In 35 games this past season, Terry averaged a career-low 4.5 points and 1.6 assists per game.

He will likely be a reserve/backup guard to Patrick Beverley in Houston.

Gee is a five-year NBA veteran who will already be playing for his fourth team. This past season, he averaged 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

Chandler Parsons and James Harden Exchange Words

Chandler Parsons and James Harden Exchange Words

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks may have a rivalry brewing between then after Rockets guard James Harden said the team will be just fine without forward Chandler Parsons, who's heading to the Mavericks.

"Dwight [Howard] and I are the cornerstones of the Rockets," Harden told The Philippine Star. "The rest of the guys are role players or pieces that complete our team. We've lost some pieces and added some pieces."

"I think we'll be fine next season," he added.

Parsons spent the first three seasons of his career with the Rockets and was one of the team's best players. Still, he wound up signing a three-year, $46 million contract with the Mavericks that the Rockets decided not to match.

In responding to Harden's comments, Parsons proclaimed that Harden's attitude was one of the reasons why he left the team, adding that he wants to be considered an important member of a winning team.

This past season, Parsons averaged 16.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

Jeremy Lin Putting ‘Linsanity’ Behind Him

Jeremy Lin Putting ‘Linsanity’ Behind Him

NBA via New York Knicks(EL SEGUNDO, Calif.) -- Even though he'll always be associated with Linsanity, new Los Angeles Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin is moving on from what made him one of the most recognized basketball players in the world.

"I'm not trying to relive that banner season," Lin said during his introductory news conference with the Lakers on Thursday. "I think that's been a big weight off my shoulders and I think that's very important for me as a player. I'm not trying to recreate a Linsanity. I'm not trying to be that phenomenon that happened in New York. I think I just want to be myself more than ever."

In his lone season with the New York Knicks from 2011-2012, Lin set the basketball world on fire as he consistently put up big numbers on a nightly basis. Lin was never a highly-touted prospect, and was recalled from the D-League, so his success took many by surprise.

Lin spent the past two seasons with the Houston Rockets and averaged 13.0 points during that time. Even though he may never match his production during the height of Linsanity, the Lakers traded for him in hopes of stabilizing the team's point guard position.

ESPN: Bulls to Sign G Aaron Brooks

ESPN: Bulls to Sign G Aaron Brooks

Sacramento Kings/NBA(NEW YORK) --  The Chicago Bulls are finalizing a contract with free agent guard Aaron Brooks, according to ESPN.

The addition of Brooks gives the Bulls another scoring option off the bench.  Chicago has retooled its roster during the offseason with the additions of former All-Star Pau Gasol, European forward Nikola Mirotic, and rookie guard Doug McDermott in hopes of competing for the Eastern Conference crown.

The 29-year-old Brooks was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 26th overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft out of the University of Oregon.

Brooks averaged 9.0 points and 3.2 assists per game last season while playing for the Rockets and Denver Nuggets.

Chandler Parsons ‘Offended’ by Rockets

Chandler Parsons ‘Offended’ by Rockets

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) -- Chandler Parsons is a Dallas Maverick after agreeing on a three-year deal worth $46 million last week. Still, Parsons is "offended" that the Houston Rockets did not even entertain the offer sheet that he signed with Dallas and believes that he was the third best player on the roster.

"Honestly, I was offended by the whole process," Parsons told Yahoo! Sports on Monday. "They publicly said that they were going out looking for a third star when I thought they had one right in front of them. I guess that's just how they viewed me as a player. I don't think I've scratched the surface of where I can be as a player and I think I'm ready for that role."

"You can't knock them for always trying to get better. [Houston general manager] Daryl Morey is very aggressive, is a genius, a great GM and I have nothing but respect for those guys," Parsons continued. "They are looking to make their team better. That's what they were doing. I just thought I could be that guy that could do that."

Parsons averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game last season and will join the likes of Dirk Nowitzki next season.
