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

Calvin Watkins

Ariza went 2-10 from the floor and Houston shot 22.6 percent from 3.

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.

Calvin Watkins

Dallas defeats Houston, 121-109, and we're going back to Houston. Dallas trails series, 3-1. harden with 24, Howard 13 and 3-13 from line.

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.

Monta Ellis sits with 31 pts, 6 rebs & 3 assists. He had 34 pts in Game 3. #DALvsHOU

We have a review and McHale clears the bench. Time to gas up the car, plane, bus, whatever and head to Houston. Dallas up, 119-105.

Michael Dugat

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

Dwain Price

come on dudes. you see what time it is? #replay

Jonathan Feigen

McHale clears the bench with 1:36 left, Dallas up 119-105.

Tony Jones

The last two games have been so much fun once Dallas said "screw defending, we'll just score 125 a night"

Calvin Watkins

Trevor Ariza is 2-10 tonight and 0-5 from three.

Jenny Dial Creech

Then Brewer and Ariza missed 3s. So it’s a 12-point game with 1:36 to play.

Tim MacMahon

Monta Ellis has back-to-back 30-plus-point games. Previous playoff career high was 29.

Jenny Dial Creech

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

Matt Steinmetz

Jonathan Feigen

Smith's 4 3-pointers -- all in 4th quarter -- a career playoff high. He has 18 of his 23 pts in the 4th. Brewer's 20p a career playoff high.

lol. Tyson Chandler wants to fight Dwight Howard so badly

Tim MacMahon

How much would you pay for pay-per-view of Tyson Chandler and Dwight Howard fighting?

With 2:44 to play in the game, Mavs lead 115-105.

Rick Noland

starting perkins with moz clogs middle, but bulls are big. not sure can go much smaller if JR also out

It just doesn't make sense. Josh Smith is a bad 3-pt shooter. Now 437-of-439 vs Mavs (that may be an exaggeration)

Then another Josh Smith 3. 9 point game.

Paul Pierce is at that odd place in history - still effective on the court and devastating as an internet and interview troll.

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

Mike Mazzeo

Paul Pierce, who #Nets decided to pass on retaining, averaged 15.5 points on 57.6 percent shooting in sweep of the #Raptors. Still got "IT."

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.

No traditional point guard on the floor for Houston. Harden and Brewer in backcourt.

Josh Smith 31.6 3PT% this season ... 53.8 3PT% vs Mavs in four games

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.

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.

The Rockets had gone over 9 1/2 minutes without a FG before that Corey Brewer basket... #DALvsHOU

Jorge Castillo

Wall: "The focus we had coming into this series on the practice court and at shoot-around was the best we’ve ever had since I’ve been here."

Jonathan Feigen

Brewer scores on a break, Rockets first FG in nearly 10 minutes.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets get their first FG in the last 9.5 minutes.

Tony Jones

Something needs to be done about the way the league officiates James Harden. The calls he gets are disgraceful

Tim Cato

If Monta stands still that is still probably a foul but actually might have been a no foul #banthecharge

Dwain Price

The #Rockets are 0 of 12 on FGs this period. Wow!!

Rob Peterson

I will never, ever get tired of "Singin' in the Rain" ...

Ryan McDonald

It's not the best strategy to miss shots, especially when the other team is making shots

Sean Highkin

Can't decide what would be funnier: Love leaving the Cavs after they traded Wiggins for him or if Olynyk actually blew the Celtics' shot.

Jonathan Feigen

Mavs on a 25-3 run since Harden's 3 in the 2nd quarter. Rockets have missed 18-consecutive shots and are 0 for 12 in 2nd half. Dallas up 24.

Kevin Pelton

Lesson from Rockets-Mavs: starting your best lineup works.

Earl K. Sneed

20-2 @Dallas Mavericks run now to lead 81-57 with 4:34 left in the 3rd. #DALvsHOU

Calvin Watkins

It's 81-57 Dallas. Houston has missed the last 20 shots from the floor. Brewer left huddle early to talk to refs. Nobody is happy.

Tim Bontemps

Still don't understand why New Orleans declined his fourth-year option. Never made sense to me at all. twitter.com/espn_macmahon/…

Steve Luhm

2010 NBA draft: 8. Aminu, 9. Hayward, 10. George.

Dwain Price

Are you kidding me? Monta with the spin cycle shot. #Mavs up 81-57 with 4:34 to go in the 3rd period.
