NBA released assorted Game 5 schedules. If there is a Game 5 in Rockets-Mavs series will be at 6:30, 7 or 8 Tue. Hope that clears things up.
McHale on Howard: "Dwight was unreal. He got every rebound and was just a beast down there.' Howard outrebounded the rest of Rockets, 26-20.
Parecería que Spurs y Clippers van a anotar en todo el partido lo que Mavericks y Rockets convirtieron en un tiempo.
Rick Carlisle made some really pointed comments about the officiating of the Rockets' physical play. Probably a $25K message.
