  James Harden busts out of slump, Russell Westbrook keeps rolling as Rockets top Mavericks The Rockets, playing with no one taller than 6-6, spread the floor and went to the rim, missing for a while, hitting enough to push a lead to 18. When the game was on the line, however, they went back to what small lineups, especially Rockets small lineups, do most. They fired away from deep, with James Harden finding the shot that had abandoned him and the Rockets shooting their way past the Mavericks, 128-121, Friday at Toyota Center.

'Gray death' super drug being made in Houston© Provided by KHOU-TV Houston 'Gray death' super drug being made in Houston The Drug Enforcement Administration is alerting the public about a dangerous drug known as "gray death."

"It's like playing Russian Roulette," said DEA Special Agent In Charge Sammy Parks. "You're putting your lives in these drug dealers hands."

Gray death is a new super drug that looks like small chunks of concrete but can be powder-like too. It's made of heroin, fentanyl and other deadly opioids.

Lillard matches Kobe with historic 6-game scoring outburst

  Lillard matches Kobe with historic 6-game scoring outburst Damian Lillard's incredible recent run has put him on equal footing with a late legend. After dropping 51 against the Utah Jazz on Saturday, the Portland Trail Blazers star has now totaled 293 points over his last six games. That draws Lillard equal with Kobe Bryant for the third-highest output over any six-game stretch in the past 20 seasons, according to ESPN's Kevin Pelton.After dropping 51 against the Utah Jazz on Saturday, the Portland Trail Blazers star has now totaled 293 points over his last six games. That draws Lillard equal with Kobe Bryant for the third-highest output over any six-game stretch in the past 20 seasons, according to ESPN's Kevin Pelton.

The mix makes it even more dangerous for users.

"This drug is being made in clandestine labs by someone with no chemistry background, no oversight, no rhyme or reason to what they're putting in this drug," Parks said.

Gray death is 10,000 times more potent than morphine. The DEA is warning folks across the country after law enforcement in Louisiana discovered it just last week. Law enforcement in Houston said it's already in the city.

"We believe gray death is being produced here, it is being made," Parks said. "It is localized."

Last May, the DEA confiscated 170 grams of gray death in Houston. Now, the DEA wants to contain it.

"We don't want it to gain any momentum," Parks said. "The last thing we want is for the drug to get into our schools or even local universities."

Police investigating shooting in West Seattle; 1 injured with gunshot wound to head

  Police investigating shooting in West Seattle; 1 injured with gunshot wound to head Police were investigating the Sunday morning shooting of a man on West Seattle's Alki Beach after he was found with a gunshot wound to the head. The 21-year-old man survived, and Det. Patrick Michaud said in a statement the injuries weren't life-threatening. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center. Officers responded to the scene at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday after reports of someone shot in the 2600 block of Alki Avenue Southwest, Michaud said.Witnesses told police the victim was sitting at a fire pit when a group of people came up to him. There was a brief fight until shots were fired and the group scattered, Michaud said.

The DEA is targeting those producing and distributing the gray death. They're selling it for about $20 a hit. But experts warn even a tiny amount can kill.

"That's who we want to identify and that's who we want to arrest and ultimately prosecute," Parks said.

The DEA warns anyone who may come across this drug to definitely not touch it. Instead, call law enforcement right away. They are trained on exactly how to safely remove it.
