If the Rockets miss out on big stars this summer, they could approach Eric Gordon on extension talks, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.
This is logical for the Rockets, but it seems obvious Clint Capela is a much bigger priority. Gordon has really turned his career around after a brutal, injury-plagued run with the Pelicans. One way or another, the Rockets will make some moves this summer. Jun 28 - 8:15 PM

Eric Gordon scored 19 points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding with two rebounds, four 3-pointers and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

He came out shooting the lights out, scoring eight points in the first 4:30 of the game and going 4-of-4 from deep in the first half with 16 points. The second half was a different story as Gordon went 1-of-4 from both the field and the line. If Chris Paul is out for Game 7 on Monday, he'll have to put together a complete game for the Rockets to advance to the NBA Finals.
May 26 - 11:37 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni says that Eric Gordon will start Game 6 against the Warriors on Saturday.

With Chris Paul being out due to a right hamstring strain, it's no surprise Gordon will get the start here. It's Gordon's first start of the playoffs and the Rockets will need him to step up to replace how well CP3 has played over the last couple of games. Paul's status going forward is still uncertain, so Gordon could also start on Monday in Game 7 if the Warriors win Game 6 on Saturday.
May 25 - 1:18 PM

Eric Gordon scored 24 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He made some big plays on both ends late in this game. Moving forward, coach Mike D'Antoni said Gordon could be looking at a play-making role while Chris Paul (hamstring) is out. Nothing is official yet on CP3, but for now we're expecting Gordon to post huge numbers in 36-42 minutes in Game 6 on Saturday.
May 24 - 11:58 PM

Eric Gordon shot 4-of-13 with a pair of 3-pointers during Sunday's loss, scoring 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and three turnovers.

Gordon checked in early and logged 31 minutes, but couldn't duplicate his playoff career-high 27-point eruption from Game 2. P.J. Tucker also cooled off with six points, six boards and zero defensive stats in 33 minutes, Trevor Ariza had six points on 2-of-6 shooting, and the result was a 126-85 shellacking in Oracle Arena. Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said afterward that his team "played soft" tonight, and they'll only have one day to regroup before Game 4.
May 20 - 10:41 PM

Eric Gordon scored 27 points while shooting 6-of-9 from three and had three rebounds and two assists in Houston's Game 2 win over Golden State on Wednesday.

This was a scoring high for Gordon in these playoffs and the most he's scored since March 27th against the Bulls. He shot well, going 8-of-15 from the field and 5-of-5 from the charity stripe. Gordon was announced as one of the three finalists for Sixth Man of the Year along with Lou Williams and Fred VanVleet, and he proved why tonight in 32 minutes off the bench.
May 17 - 12:09 AM

Eric Gordon scored 25 points with two rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Jazz on Friday night.

After going 5-of-22 in the first two games of this series, he busted out of a slump early with 17 points in the first half to help Houston get to 70 points. Gordon's minutes have been fairly high when the games are close with an average of 31.3 minutes per game in his previous postseason outings this year. He'll be highly scoring dependent, but Gordon could be a DFS play now that he could be out of his cold spell.
May 5 - 1:00 AM

Eric Gordon shot 5-of-16 to score 15 points with six rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

Gordon went 0-of-6 from the field in Game 1 but he's never been shy offensively, and he finished as one of four players in double-figures for Houston. None of his bench mates joined him as the second unit shot a combined 7-of-25 from the field (28.0 percent) -- they'll need more supporting production to reclaim homecourt advantage with a victory in Utah on Friday and/or Sunday.
May 2 - 11:02 PM

Eric Gordon finished Sunday's Game 1 win vs. Utah without a field goal and just seven points in his 31 minutes of action.

And the Rockets still won by 14 points. Gordon was 7-of-9 from the charity stripe, adding three boards, four assists, and a steal to his line. Needless to say, we expect Gordon to be better moving forward. It's going to be a challenge to be worse.
Apr 29 - 6:25 PM

Eric Gordon shot 3-of-10 from the field and 1-of-7 from deep on Sunday, scoring seven points with two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

Gordon didn't get to the free-throw line and he wasn't the only Rockets player to struggle from downtown. Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Chris Paul and Gerald Green combined for a 2-of-18 mark from deep, which is almost unthinkable. The Wolves allowed opponents to shoot 36.6% from deep this season (13th-highest in the league) and we're expecting these guys to find the range sooner rather than later.
Apr 15 - 11:58 PM

Eric Gordon (ankle) won't suit up vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

The Rockets are resting most of their key players tonight, including James Harden and Chris Paul, so it's no surprise to see Gordon get the same treatment. He should be fine for the postseason.
Apr 11 - 9:09 PM

Eric Gordon (ankle) is questionable with a sore left ankle to face the Kings on Wednesday.

After the injury to Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) last night, you would think the Rockets are careful here. If he is out, Gerald Green and P.J. Tucker could see more minutes.
Apr 11 - 3:05 PM

Eric Gordon played through a foot injury and had six points on 2-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

Gordon should be good to go for the playoffs, but we'll have to see if he plays in Wednesday's finale against the Kings. Given that Houston has nothing left to play for or prove, it would make sense for them to play the bench heavy minutes tonight.
Apr 11 - 1:16 AM

Eric Gordon (foot) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

His injury isn't serious and the Rockets have just being resting their veterans with the No. 1 seed locked up. Assuming EG plays on Tuesday, there's a good chance he doesn't on Wednesday.
Apr 9 - 6:47 PM

Eric Gordon (foot) will not play vs. the Thunder on Saturday.

The only thing the Rockets are playing for is to stick it to the Thunder, who would fall to ninth in the Western Conference with a loss. With Gordon out, Gerald Green will be the understudy called upon with more P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute.
