The Rockets scored 140 points and tied the NBA’s single game record for threes made the last time they played Golden State. That game was here. Tonight’s game is in Northern California, and the Rockets are not very good on the road. NEWS 92 FM Sports Reporter Danny Mata has all your sports headlines, brought to you by Knapp Chevorlet.

The Rockets are just 10-17 away from Toyota this season. Tip off is tonight at 9:30 p.m.

Royce White Reports to D-Leagues

Royce White reported to Rio Grande Valley yesterday, as expected. He could play tonight. We’ll see if he does and how much.

Astros Start Spring Training

Astros pitchers and catchers reported to Kissimmee for spring training yesterday. The full squad reports Friday, but several position players showed up yesterday. Baseball plays 162 games, but they don’t start till the end of March. Spring training can be pretty tedious, Bo Porter says.

“Spring training can get long,” Porter said. “You want to make sure the guys are obviously having fun, but at the same time that you are also addressing the things that need to address from the attention to detail standpont, from the preparation standpoint in quality work in each and every day.”

Lucas Harrell has the most wins of any pitcher on the team last year. He says he is excited to see some new faces.

Bourne Signs with Cleveland

Former Astro Michael Bourne signed with the Cleveland Indians. Four years, $48 million. He was rumored to be going to the Mets. That didn’t happen. So now he joins Brett Myers and the tribe in Ohio.

Brad Davis Returns for Dynamo Preseason Play

The Dynamo are off to South Carolina at the end of the week. They’ll have another preseason tourny there. They’ll also have Brad Davis. He’s back after almost a month with the U.S. National Team.

“Excited to get back in with the guys, and get the year started off right,” Davis said. “It was a good training. Good to be back and excited to be here to work with everybody.”

Eagles Agree to One-Year Contract for Vick

The Eagles agreed to a one-year contract with Michael Vick. Vick was expected to leave the team, but new head coach Chip Kelly likes him. The deal is worth up to $10 million if he meets all of his incentives.

Wrestling Cut from 2020 Olympic Games

If you’re a fan of Olympic wrestling, I’ve got some tough news: The International Olympic Committee opted to dump the sport for the 2020 games. Wrestling was considered one of the 25 core sports at the games, and has been an event since the inaugural modern games in 1896.

It was voted out after a commision report that analyses things like TVratings, tickets sales, global participation and popularity. So baseball, softball and wrestling are out of the Olympics, but power walking is still in.
