Ariza said he learned more about the Dallas-Houston rivalry tonight. “I see what it means. The good guys won tonight."

Jenny Dial Creech

Trevor Ariza: “When all else fails, all you can do is try to turn up the intensity defensively, and that’s what we did."

David Hardisty

Asked if he has a good understanding now of the Rockets-Mavs rivalry, said @Trevor Ariza: "I see what it means. The good guys won today."

David Hardisty

Ariza makes two free throws, Rockets up by three, 21.3 seconds left.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden closes to Monta Ellis, forcing bad pass, stolen by Ariza. He goes to line with 21.3 left.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta with a turnover. Fall on Barea and Ariza goes to the line with 21.3 ticks left. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

GREAT defense by Dirk on Ariza. Yes, GREAT defense by Dirk. #DALatHOU

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza, Parsons playing to a draw. Ariza 2 of 7, 1 of 5 on 3s; Parsons 2 of 8, 0 for 5 on 3s. We now return you to Beverley vs. Nelson.

Jenny Dial Creech

Trevor Ariza and Mark Cuban chatting during warm ups for the second half.

Tim MacMahon

Half: Rockets 60, Mavs 51. Trevor Ariza: 5 points, 2-6 FG, 2 rebounds, 1 assist. Chandler Parsons: 4 points, 2-6 FG, 2 rebounds, 1 assist.

Jonathan Feigen

Trevor Ariza cuts to take a Terry pass for a slam w/ 37.4 left in half. Rockets first points in the paint other than put-backs or on breaks.

Jonathan Feigen

That also brings in Isaiah Canaan to play the point. He's matched up on Jameer Nelson so that works with Harden on Parsons, Ariza on Ellis.

Earl K. Sneed

Ariza for three and the @Dallas Mavericks now trail 51-39. #DALatHOU

Tim MacMahon

James Harden says Chandler Parsons replacement Trevor Ariza gives Rockets three things "we were lacking last year." es.pn/1v4Prfn

Gary Lee

This is surprising, but Kobe talked about how difficult it was to play against his little brother, Trevor Ariza. lakersnation.com/kobe-on-trevor…

Jenny Dial Creech

Ball was knocked out of bounds by… looks like Ariza. Is likely going to be Lakers ball.

Mike Trudell

LAL are double-teaming Harden hard out of the time out, which resulted in Ariza's driving dish to T. Black, who hit 1 of 2 FT's. 92-89.

Mike Trudell

A tough pull-up J from just inside the 3-point line goes down for Kobe, plus the PF on Ariza. LAL within 2, 1:43 to play. Kobe has 27.

Kevin Ding

Kobe was 2 of 15 in the 2nd half until hitting that 20-footer with Ariza's foul for the and-1. ... HOU 91, LAL 89 with 1:43 left.

Mike Trudell

Tough call on Lin in transition, Ariza not allowing him to land, but Beverley continues to give him problems. Blocked his shot on next trip.

Jonathan Feigen

Papanikolaou's huge half keeps Rockets in game, and in front 51-49 at half. But Harden has to score. Has 4p, 4a. Ariza with 10, but 3 of 9.

Mike Trudell

Kobe used to go at Ariza all the time in practice as teammates, and he just hit him w/a turnaround J to reach 11 points on 5 of 10 FG's.

Gary Lee

I actually don’t think Lakers beat Celtics with him. RT @1dnyce: @Gary Lee lakers should've kept AriZa, dumbass move

Gary Lee

Yeah, Trevor Ariza is everything I hoped Wes Johnson would be. Which version of Wes Johnson will be able to make threes and play defense?

Arash Markazi

Dwight Howard (18.8 PPG) and Trevor Ariza (14.6) are 2 of 3 former Lakers averaging at least 14 PPG for other teams (Pau Gasol, 18.6 PPG).

David Hardisty

Trevor Ariza: "They just straight up beat our ass."

Howard Chen

Ariza: "They just straight up beat our ass." #RedNation

Mike Prada

Rockets going super small to start the second half. Ariza at the 4, Canaan and Beverley in together. That’ll be interesting.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan starts the second half. Trevor Ariza moves to the four on Z-Bo. Memphis immediately posts him up.

Chip Crain

Conley leads all scorers with 15, Q has 13, Zbo 8 & 5. Ariza leads Rockets with 12, Howard 9 & 8, Beverly 8, Harden 6

Jonathan Feigen

Rockes 14 turnovers by far the biggest issue but Harden and Ariza have played 15 and 13 minutes between them and have each made 1 shot.

Jonathan Feigen

Matchup of Trevor Ariza on Courtney Lee pits players Rockets once traded for one another.

Chip Crain

Grizzlies announced starters are Allen, Randolph, Gasol, Conley, Lee. Rockets starters are Ariza, Montiejunas, Howard, Harden, Beverly

Alex Kennedy

I wrote about Evan Fournier, Brandon Jennings, Reggie Jackson, Jimmy Butler, Darren Collison, Trevor Ariza & others: basketballinsiders.com/nba-pm-10-bigg…

Steven Adams says "Join the club, Trevor Ariza." vine.co/v/O5FpaWUg1Eu

Anthony Slater

Steven Adams adds Trevor Ariza to the ever-growing list vine.co/v/O5Fpzljqhvv

Jonathan Feigen

More chippiness. Ariza called for a T for a shove of Adams. Tie game with 1:59 left. Rules require that someone win it.

Royce Young

Steven Adams just got Trevor Ariza for a critical tech with 1:59 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Yeah, ton of Ariza on him, but after misses (and there's been a lot) Beverley. RT @DreamShakeSBN: @Jonathan Feigen Mostly Ariza guarding him

Royce Young

Trevor Ariza is doing a fantastic job on Reggie Jackson, which thereby is completely detonating OKC's offense. Can't get anything initiated.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets finally seem to have something going. A few defensive stops, made free throws by Harden, a 3 from Ariza…

Derek Bodner

Nerlens Noel almost got knocked out by Trevor Ariza's backside.

Keith Pompey

What were they thinking. The Sixers were walking back on defense, which led to an easy basket by Ariza.

Keith Pompey

Bad pass by Noel led to Ariza steal. He was fouled on his way to the basket by MCW. Makes both to knot the score at 37 with 4:15 left n half

Keith Pompey

#HoustonRockets starters: Trevor Ariza, Donatas Motiejunas, Dwight Howard, James Harden, Isaiah Canaan

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 113, TWolves 101. Harden 23p-10a, Howard 22p-10r-4blk, Ariza 19p. Pap, Terry a combined 7-7 3P. Rockets now 7-1.

Alex Kennedy

Harden: 23 points, 10 assists, 4 boards, 3 steals Howard: 22 points, 10 rebounds, 4 blocks Ariza: 19 points, 5 boards, 2 steals Rockets: 7-1

Jonathan Feigen

Harden gets his 10th assist on a slick dish to Ariza on a break. Rockets lead by 21, 6:07 left. Thinking he might be done.

Derek Bodner

"[Ariza] made more corner three's than anybody in the NBA last year." That surprises me not at all. @Daryl Morey
