Dave Trembley and Jim Leyland | Rockets point guards | Case Keenum’s debut

  • Brian McTaggart (MLB.com) talks about Jim Leyland’s affect on Dave Trembley.

Dave Trembley was going through a rough patch. He was managing at Double-A Harrisburg in the Pittsburgh organization in 1987 and was trying to shake an 11-game losing streak. While in his room at the Red Roof Inn in Albany, N.Y., his phone rang.

 

Houston Rockets

During the 2011-12 regular season, Jeremy Lin shot 32.0 percent from 3-point range . In 2012-13, he upped that number to 33.9, but still couldn’t do enough to convince the critics that he can be the type of off-ball point guard that a James Harden-led offense demands. The numbers say we aren’t looking close enough.

 

Houston Texans

When the 5-2 Colts come back from their bye, they’ll be traveling to Houston to play the 2-5 Texans in a game that the Texans will need to win in order to have any prayer of claiming the AFC South for a third consecutive season. The Texans put in a good effort at undefeated Kansas City on Sunday before coming up narrowly short, losing 17-16, but the players they lost may prove to be more significant. Already without Matt Schaub, the Texans lost Arian Foster, Ben Tate, Duane Brown, and even J.J. Watt for stretches during Sunday’s game. The most damaging injury saw linebacker Brian Cushing suffer a broken leg and a torn LCL when he was taken out by a Jamaal Charles cut block, prematurely ending his season for the second consecutive campaign.
