Dwain Price

Harden led the #Rockets with 42 pts, Josh had 18, Brewer 15, Ariza and Howard 13 each, and Jones 12. Howard had 26 rebounds.

Earl K. Sneed

Offensive foul on Ariza with 3:09 left. @Dallas Mavericks are within six and have the momentum... #DALvsHOU

Calvin Watkins

Trevor Ariza draws an offensive foul. Crowd not happy.

Earl K. Sneed

Dwight Howard then tosses Devin Harris to the floor and Ariza hits a three. Rick Carlisle is not happy at alll. #DALvsHOU

Tim Cato

Tyson Chandler says 'NOPE' to Trevor Ariza's dunk attempt vine.co/v/eWWw9iLjlFz sbnation.com/e/8258956?utm_…

Jenny Dial Creech

Second half James Harden and Trevor Ariza are playing on another level.

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza realizes Dirk is guarding him. vine.co/v/eWWwmtH9Ka7

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson Chandler with the BIG-TIME rejection on Trevor Ariza. Harden then hits a three, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout down 77-76.

Mike Prada

Surprised it took so long to put Dirk on Ariza.

Tas Melas

Dirk on Ariza is so great for matchup purposes. And if it baits Trevor to drive, it's a huge win for Dallas.

Tas Melas

Dirk guarded Ariza for a couple possessions while RJ guarded Terrence Jones. The adjustments to hide Nowitzki's defense have begun.

Jonathan Feigen

All kinds of matchup changes for Game 3. Dirk on Ariza with Jefferson on Jones, Felton on Harden. Lots of double teams.

Calvin Watkins

With Harden getting a break, Howard, Smith, Brewer and Ariza will carry the offensive load.

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza matching up with Nowitzki, Brewer on Ellis. Will likely see much more of that in the series.

David Hardisty

Rockets trail 24-23 after 1Q. Harden looks good, the rest struggling. Josh Smith, Trevor Ariza and Dwight Howard are a combined 2-15 FG.

Tas Melas

A little talked about story in Game 1 of Rockets-Mavs was the job Trevor Ariza did on Monta Ellis. Although, Ariza is always overlooked.

Tim MacMahon

Part of Mavs' problem with no Chandler Parsons: Rockets can sic Trevor Ariza on Monta Ellis.

Jim Eichenhofer

My HOOP feature on how to guard Carmelo (assist Ariza, Tyreke Evans, Matt Barnes, Tony Allen): bit.ly/1Izc4gs http://t.co/ppp4yb3kVD

David Hardisty

Plenty of heroes tonight: Ariza (12 pts, 11 reb, 6 ast), TJones (19 pts, 9 reb, 6 ast), Terry (4-7 from three) and Brewer (15 pts) all huge.

Adriana Galimberti

Trevor Ariza is my twin. I used to play just like him.

Jenny Dial Creech

Ariza’s 3-pointer ruled a two - his foot was on the line. Rockets up 90-81 with 8:30 to play.

Howard Chen

Turns out that isn't a three. Refs review it and call the Ariza shot a two. Ah well, still clutch. #ClutchCity

Mike Prada

Rockets got a big bailout by Ariza, because they really miss having a secondary ball-handler with Harden out.

David Hardisty

They have already reviewed the Ariza three and called it a two (foot on the line). 90-81 Rockets, 8:45 left.

Tony Mejia

Ariza shot definitely good, likely going to be a 2.

Alex Kennedy

What a performance by Trevor Ariza, who's dealing with cramps in his legs. After big 3, he now has 13 points, 6 assists, 6 boards, 2 steals.

Earl K. Sneed

Trevor Ariza beats the shot clock with a three that will be reviewed. Rockets up 91-81. #DALatHOU

Howard Chen

Trevor Ariza. 3-3 on three's so far today. That one at the shot clock buzzer. #RedNation

David Hardisty

WOW.... a massive three by Trevor Ariza on a broken play as the shot clock expired. 91-81 Rockets.

Calvin Watkins

Talked to a Rockets official today just praising Trevor Ariza. Professional. Steady.

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza worked to stretch it out a bit. Seems OK. Brewer checking in.

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza hobbling a bit. Rockets take a time out to check on him. About time Brewer normally checks in.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden's seven assists in first half match his career playoff high. Ariza had 6, 4 shy of his career playoff best.

Howard Chen

Harden the facilitator, finds Ariza, who gets the bounce for three. #Rockets lead it 59-55 at the half. Harden 12pts, 7 assists.

David Hardisty

HALF: Rockets 59, Mavs 55. Dallas got back in it with Dwight's foul trouble. Ariza 8p-6a-6r, Harden 12p-6a, TJones, Terry each 10p.

Jonathan Feigen

Parsons back in the game, matched up on Ariza.

Calvin Watkins

Richard Jefferson's foul on Trevor Ariza was reviewed and its not common it's a flagrant foul.

Dwain Price

Tech on Ariza and Parsons. Ariza took Parsons' spot on the #Rockets when Parsons signed with the #Mavs.

Earl K. Sneed

Double techs on Chandler Parsons and Trevor Ariza. The two are getting chippy. #DALatHOU

Calvin Watkins

Trevor Ariza was also given one. I guess he said something.

Jenny Dial Creech

Double technical foul on Ariza and Parsons for… um… being here tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza and Parsons square off. Look at each other with angry expressions on their faces. Joey double-Ts them.

Earl K. Sneed

Dwight Howard has been dominant inside, and Ariza has the Rockets up 14-4 after that three. #DALatHOU

Calvin Watkins

Dwight Howard looks spry tonight. He's got three blocks and his latest one led to a Ariza jumper. It's 14-4.

Jonathan Feigen

Also as expected, Ariza on Ellis, Harden on Parsons.

Calvin Watkins

I know you guys care but I was told Clint Capela is the best Rockets player on FIFA 15. Trevor Ariza told me that today. Rockets up 37-22.

David Hardisty

Jason Terry goes behind the back on the break to Ariza for the slam. vine.co/v/ezWeaXx7x0Z
