Save your Harden FT hot takes. He shot 4 on intentional fouls to end the game. He beat the Mavs mainly on kick outs not cheap FTs.

Jeff Caplan

Harden, who drives to the rim relentlessly, shot 17 FTs. No other Rox shot > 4. Maybe Mavs should have made sure Dwight/Smith shoot more.

Evan Dunlap

Dwight Howard hasn't won a playoff series since 2010. That drought could end this year.

Harden gets the opponent's total focus. He didn't shoot well, Dwight played 17 min and Rockets still scored 118 points.

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.

Jeff Caplan

James Harden goes for 24 and 11 and 2 TOs in 38 minutes (plus 15) and some people think other players carried HIM to Game 1 win. LOL.

Janis Carr

Pardy tucks one in for Jets, but Stempniak was in the net. Might not count. Officials discussing

I know Harden gets credit for dragging a bunch of random dudes to a 2-seed, but it's possible Houston's a genuinely good team, right? BK

Zach Lowe

Key takeaway is Dwight looked fantastic. Rondo was great for a quarter, still just kills their spacing. Had some success on PNRs w/ Dirk.

Chris Mannix

Great work by @SHOsports in getting the audio from the corner in that final round. Chavez said no more about a dozen times.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets got a lot out of Terrence Jones tonight. He has 19 points, 9 rebounds. Has been key in this one.

Is it happenstance that the same percentage of problems exist in screenplays that make it to theaters? twitter.com/fivethirtyeigh…

Good news for Dallas: lots of rest for Chandler Parsons. Bad news for Dallas: Everything else.

Jason Jackson

Cannot find any info on it RT @synshadows15: @Jason Jackson any word on why there's no @NBA playoffs logo on the courts?

Mike Prada

Dallas is going to have to junk up the game even more. Dirk is useless defending pick and roll and transition D so bad. I'd go zone more

Ben Standig

Two small forwards with big games on Day 1 of the postseason: Paul Pierce and Trevor Ariza. Actually , Pierce is more of a 4-man.

Zach Lowe

Houston just ruthless going at Dirk in the PNR tonight.

Jenny Dial Creech

Brewer and Terry both won a title with the Mavericks in 2011. They are torching their former team tonight. Terry has 16 and Brewer 14.

Mike Wise

Best and worst of boxing right there. A down and almost out Chavez Jr. summoning heart, fighting back but losing brain cells. Good stoppage

Chris Mannix

Before Showtime went to the replay, it looked like Joe Goossen asked Chavez if he wanted to continue. Chavez shook his head, no.

Jeff Wade

Too many missed opportunities and blown assignments to win a playoff game on the road I'm afraid

Ethan Strauss

This whole "playing Rondo" thing just isn't working for the Mavs

There was zero chance Barea was leaving that moment without a foul. BK

Calvin Watkins

Cuban wanted a travel. He didn't get it. Harden gets two free throws.

Mike Prada

Corey Brewer is going to be the difference in this series because Dallas' transition D is like a Southwest boarding process

It's a heck of a night for the 2011 champion Mavs that are now Rockets. Jason Terry 18 points Corey Brewer 12 points (10 in 4th)

Corey Brewer, Finals MVP

Earl K. Sneed

What has gotten into Corey Brower??? #DALatHOU

Calvin Watkins

Dirk Nowitzki yelling at his teammates. Corey Brewer scores on a layup. It's 108-95 with 3:20 left.

Devin Kharpertian

Dirk dropping his mouthguard on the floor and popping it back in after yelling at his teammates is an MVP move

Earl K. Sneed

11 pts & 15 rebs for Tyson Chandler. #DALatHOU

Clearly the secret to Corey Brewer's powers lie in the chance meeting he had with @Benjamin Hochman and I at a sushi joint on Sunset Blvd in 2013

Brewer with a three as Harden gets his 10th assists of the night. Dallas needs a timeout and it's 100-89, Houston.

Corey Brewer picked a good time to start making his 3-point shots again.

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

Earl K. Sneed

A fan just ran down to shout at Mark Cuban: "Cuban, this ain't Shark Tank. You're gonna get swept, baby." Cuban did not entertain him.

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.

Michael Pointer

Matthysse and Providnikov delivered a hell of a fight. Too bad someone had to lose. Two tough guys.

Jarrod Rudolph

I felt it was a draw, but you can live with 115-113 for @MatthysseLucas #MatthysseProvodnikov

Let's be clear, that was a pretty terrible RSL performance before the Unkel shenanigans too.

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson Chandler and Rajon Rondo return with 9:34 left to play. @Dallas Mavericks trail 88-81. #DALatHOU

Mike Prada

This is sorta the series I expected: Rockets not having a great Dirk matchup when they're on D, but killing him in p&rs

Jarrod Rudolph

The guy @MatthysseLucas' corner shouldn't have told him he was winning by eight rounds #MatthysseProvodnikov #HBOBoxing

Mike Wise

Draw is fair, but I could see Matthysse winning by decision because his rangy uppercuts and crosses impress judges.

Tim MacMahon

Dirk is 8-of-10 from the floor. Find a way to get him more shots.

3:19 left in the 3rd, and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 80-70. Also, likely to be minus Devin Harris the rest of the night. 18 pts for Dirk.

Jonathan Feigen

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

Tim MacMahon

Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons are both 3-of-11 from the floor. Mavs need at least one of them to be an efficient scorer.

Calvin Watkins

It's pretty clear that when Chandler Parsons went out he was playing well. Since he's returned, struggled with his shot. He's 3-11.

Parsons is 3 of 11 with just 6 pts and 4 reb. in 26 minutes.

Since Dwight went out, 7 consecutive Dallas shots have been in the paint, most at the rim. Made just 2. But can't give up plane like that.

Calvin Watkins

You know it's a long night when Josh Smith is throwing up alley oops to Clint Capela.

Royce Young

16 points on 6-for-8 shooting (4-for-6 from deep) for Jason Terry against his former team. Rockets up 80-66. http://t.co/tMQnlpVTZd

Rick Bonnell

The @Charlotte Hornets pursuit of shooting in the summer of 2014 didn't go so well: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Mike Prada

Rockets are smartly involving Dirk's man directly in the pick and roll rather than letting him rest on the baseline.

Dwain Price

Houston back up by 14 (80-66).

David Hardisty

Harden to Josh Smith who immediately fires the alley-oop to Capela. *wipes tear*

Howard Chen

#CapelaDunk. And the rook's FIRED UP. #Rockets up 80-66 midway through the 3rd.

Jonathan Feigen

Devin Harris (left big toe) is doubtful to return.

Adi Joseph

Wait what. Dirk Noattentiontodetailski

Sean Highkin

I'm still at the arena but the Twitter streets say 2011 Dwight and #PlayoffRondo are back?

Tim MacMahon

Per Mavs, Devin Harris is doubtful to return. His left big toe acted up. Missed regular-season finale due to it.

Earl K. Sneed

Per @MavsPR, Devin Harris is doubtful to return with a left great toe injury. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

They do have cable, don't they? Jet can hit the 3.

Howard Chen

The ageless Jason Terry, ladies and gentlemen. #RedNation

David Thorpe

If Dwight realizes he is the most pivotal player in the series, Rox can roll.

Mike Wise

If I'm Lucas Matthysse, I'm moving and jabbing. Provo is a cyborg. He keeps coming, as if he likes the pain. #MatthysseProvodnikov

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have outscored Mavs by 12 in the 11 minutes Howard's been the game. Just cannot reach like that, especially for rebouding position.

Rich Levine

Playoff Rondo would still rather stick his hand in a ceiling fan than draw a foul around the hoop.

Earl K. Sneed

Harden with the score to give him 16 pts on 3 of 8 from the field, and then Rick Carlisle is assessed a tech with 7:36 in the 3rd. #DALatHOU

Ben Standig

Guessing somebody noted this but the Wizards have played overtime in three straight games.

Dwain Price

Carlisle is jawing at referee Ron Garretson, and he gets a technical foul. Carlisle is upset at some calls which haven't gone the Mavs' way.

Dan Gelston

UFC star Paige VanZant says she'll celebrate her win tonight with a trip to a beach with her parents.

Tim MacMahon

Rick Carlisle gets T'd up. He's been heated since Dirk didn't get a call on a jumper after being bumped by Terrence Jones.

Jenny Dial Creech

Carlisle just picked up a technical foul.

Jonathan Feigen

Ron Garretson Ts up Rick Carlisle.

David Hardisty

Rockets now up 72-62 and Carlisle picks up a technical after the timeout. Harden now at 16 points, 8 assists.

Calvin Watkins

Harden goes coast-to-coast and picks up his 16th point of the evening. Mavs need a timeout. Home team leads, 72-62.

Tim Bontemps

Great seeing the grest @MarkKriegel breaking things down on Showtime tonight.

Howard Chen

Dwight with his 4th foul. Capela takes his spot. #Rockets
