    Or did Toyota Center get new lighting? Or was it something with CSN's cameras?

    Because there seemed to be a bigger contrast between the wood colors on the court, and even the reds looked a little more red. Here is an example of what I'm talking about:

    I like it. Court still needs some work though.

    I was wondering how I missed the report, was it not announced this summer?

    The picture I saw, of the sideline angle, made it look pretty bad.

    I like the court. It doesn't beat you over the head with the red and I think the contrasting wood tones looks good. Now we just need a new logo.

    Beautiful. (No, not the court, the lighting.)

    Could also be camera setting as well. The white balance could have been changed.

    This is what I was wondering because even the red on the floor looks brighter.

    <p>In an effort to further deter players from taking midrange shots, Morey has highlighted the exclusion zone on the court</p>

    Yup. Best lighting style in the NBA. Noticed more teams switch over to it, Clippers being one of them.

    Texans had it last night as well.

    C'mon Les.

    Love the red trim around the court too. Rockets need to incorporate this asap.
