Jonathan Feigen

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.

Jonathan Feigen

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.

Marc Stein

Eagerly awaiting @ESPNStatsInfo dispatches on all these 3-0 series leads. It's an epidemic. Props to Rockets, Wiz, Dubs, Cavs and Bulls

Bruno Altieri

Parecería que Spurs y Clippers van a anotar en todo el partido lo que Mavericks y Rockets convirtieron en un tiempo.

Kurt Helin

James Harden scores 42 points to lead Rockets to Game 3 win, 3-0 series lead over Mavericks dlvr.it/9XW3Nw

Tim MacMahon

Rick Carlisle made some really pointed comments about the officiating of the Rockets' physical play. Probably a $25K message.

Royce Young

Rockets happy but have measured, muted celebration.

The Rockets take a 3-0 lead over the Mavs and they have everything clicking at the right time.

Respect to the Dallas Mavericks for pushing the Houston Rockets to the brink tonight. Showed a lot of character.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 130, Mavs 128. Harden (42p), Howard (26r) huge. Houston took Dallas' best shot -- still won. They go for the sweep on Sunday.

Jonathan Feigen

Brewer hits 1 of 2. Rockets up two, 6.8 seconds left. Amazing game.

David Hardisty

Corey Brewer makes just 1-2 free throws. Rockets up just two, 6.8 sec left. Timeout Dallas.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with the jumper he used at the buzzer in Phoenix. Rockets up 3, 12.7 seconds left.

Calvin Watkins

James Harden doing what MVPs do. A step-back jumper over taller defender. Rockets up, 129-126 with 12.7 seconds left.

David Hardisty

James Harden's stepback 18-footer over Tyson Chandler rattles in! What a shot. Rockets up three, 12.7 sec left.

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden hits one of his daggers. Rockets 129, Mavericks 126. Mans have the ball with 12.7 to play.

Earl K. Sneed

Harden gets the lucky bounce on a jumper. 129-126 Rockets with 12.7 seconds left. #DALvsHOU

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets up 127-126 and have the ball with 33.8 seconds. They can’t slip here because the Mavs are playing determined basketball right now.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden called for fouling Nowitzki on an off balance 3. With 33.8 seconds left, Rockets up 4. Harden reached, but not much contact.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden. 3-point play. He has 40 now. Rockets up 4 with under a minute to play.

David Hardisty

40 points now for James Harden. 127-123 Rockets, 56.8 sec left.

Royce Young

Rockets 126, Mavs 123. Less than a minute to go. http://t.co/0gODPcAZvS

David Hardisty

Bad time for the Rockets to give up a 7-0 run in 67 seconds. 1:13 left and Rockets clinging to a 124-123 lead.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets need a stop and a bucket.

Jenny Dial Creech

1:40 to play, Rockets up 124-121. Turn this game on if you aren’t watching!

David Hardisty

I actually found myself talking to the TV -- "James, he's coming to steal it from behind!" 124-116 Rockets, 2:40 left.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk just missed a wide-open three from the top of the key, and then fouls Josh Smith on his floater. FT coming and the Rockets lead 124-116

Earl K. Sneed

Harden for three, and the Rockets lead 120-110. #DALvsHOU

Jonathan Feigen

Howard's turn in the hack-a-Rocket. He makes 1 of 2. Rockets cannot pull him. He's going to have to make fts.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets get a time out up nine to get Harden back in the game with 6:42 left.

Ryan Ward

With or without Rondo, the Dallas Mavericks aren’t going anywhere this year. Houston Rockets clearly superior in this series.

Jenny Dial Creech

Really hard to imagine where this Rockets team would be without Brewer and Smith.

David Hardisty

It's Corey Brewer Time. 12 of his 14 points have come in the second half. 112-101 Rockets, 8:06 left.

Jonathan Feigen

After the time out, Mavs start the hack-a-Rocket. Josh Smith to the line. He has missed his one free throw. Rockets up 7.

David Hardisty

The Rockets are up seven, but note Dwight Howard is a +21 in this game. Mavs can't do anything with him.

Calvin Watkins

Fans not happy with the calls going the Rockets way. Howard has 20 rebounds by the way.

David Hardisty

101-99 Rockets heading to 4th. Harden's 16 points in 3Q was two shy of Hakeem's franchise playoff record for a quarter (18p, vs. Utah '95)
