Pat Beverley, still in a cast, was taking a few shots on the court at Rockets practice today. No, he isn't available tomorrow.

Jenny Dial Creech

Ariza said Rockets have to play twice as hard tomorrow night since it's a close out game. Said he and his teammates know what it takes.

Calvin Watkins

I wonder if Game 4 was Rockets wake up call?

Mavs stay alive w/ 121-109 win vs Rockets in G4. Monta led way w/ 31 but Barea & Aminu w/ gold star performances too. G5 Tues 7p on @TXA21

Tony Mejia

If I knew that's what James Harden wore to the game, I wouldn't have been on the Rockets. That undershirt/skirt made Zubaz look conservative

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Mavs 121, #Rockets 109. Monta had 31 pts, JJ 17, Dirk 16, Aminu 16, Amar'e 12, Tyson 10.

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: @Dallas Mavericks 121, Rockets 109; 31 pts for Monta Ellis to lead six Mavs in double figures. Mavs force a Game 5 Tuesday in Houston.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Mavs 121, Rockets 109. Damage done in 2Q/3Q. Awful rebounding, 3pt shooting. Still, Rockets get one on road, come home w/ 3-1 lead.

Tim MacMahon

Final: Mavs 121, Rockets 109. Time to book a flight to Houston. This series ain't over yet.

Jenny Dial Creech

Final in Dallas: #Mavericks 121, #Rockets 109. Game 5 in Houston Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Dwain Price

Harden (24), Josh (23) and Brewer (20) leads the #Rockets.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets are 7/30 tonight on 3-point shots. Josh Smith is 4/5

Jenny Dial Creech

So basically, the Rockets thought they would keep taking 3-pointers. Ariza and Harden each just missed.

Calvin Watkins

Rick Carlisle's rant about the refs which cost him $25k, seems to have work from the Rockets prospective.

Jenny Dial Creech

Mavs get two offensive rebounds then a make by Ellis. Rockets rebounding continues to be a problem.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets within nine with 4:30 left. Need a bunch of stops, but they have escaped that offensive funk.

Tim MacMahon

Rockets within single digits, 4:30 to go.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets need a stop on defense, got one when Barea walked. Now they need a few more and some buckets to make this a ballgame. Maybe.

David Hardisty

Josh Smith now has as many threes tonight as the rest of the Rockets do combined. 109-97 Mavs, 4:50 left.

Jenny Dial Creech

Josh Smith has hit 3 3s… Rockets cutting into the lead.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets put together some offense, but they cannot get a stop.

Tim MacMahon

Rockets cut it to 14. JJ Barea and Al-Farouq Aminu check back in for Mavs.

Jenny Dial Creech

Not going to matter if Rockets don’t start going to the basket and if they can’t get stops.

David Hardisty

The Rockets just hit a three? Did I see that right? 96-82 Mavs, 9:44 left.

Jenny Dial Creech

Corey Brewer has 17 points tonight and is the only Rockets taking it to the hole.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets still taking 3s… They are 2/22 tonight.

Mark Followill

Another great game from Monta so far, 25 pts to lead the Mavs. Rockets had stretch of 17 strait misses tonite. After 3 on TXA21, Mavs 94-75

David Hardisty

Rockets awful in quarters two & three. 2-21 from 3-point range won't happen again but it's likely going to be the reason they fall tonight.

Tim MacMahon

End 3Q: Mavs 94, Rockets 75 Monta Ellis 25 points, 11-17 FG JJ Barea 17 points, 10 assists Al-Farouq Aminu 11 points, 10 rebounds

Calvin Watkins

Richard Jefferson gets the bounce and Dallas is up, 94-75. Rockets shooting 40.7 percent from the floor just 2-21 from 3 point range.

Jonathan Feigen

Mavericks 94, Rockets 75 after 3. Rockets 11 of 40 since the first quarter.

Bruno Altieri

Bienvenidos Mavericks a la serie de playoffs de primera ronda. Los Rockets padecen el huracán del equipo de Rick Carlisle. #NBAPlayoffs

Dwain Price

Nice timeout by Carlisle. #Rockets on a roll. On a 4-0 run. #Mavs up 89-72 with 1:14 left in the 3rd.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets went to the paint a couple of times and scored… weird what happens when they don’t just jack up 3s.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets losing composure, Josh Smith after getting fouled by Devin Harris, pushes him back. Refs didn't like that. He gets a Tech.
