#Mavs Rick Carlisle on the #Rockets: "Look, there are a lot of guys you've got to deal with on their team. They’re extremely talented.''

Dwain Price

"If you’re not excited and you’re not nervous this time of the year, then you should be doing some other job.’ -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Dwain Price

Parsons: "I definitely feel much better today. I was able to get through everything and went up and down and did all the contact stuff."

Dwain Price

The #Mavs were 26-20 in the games Rajon Rondo played in and 24-12 when he didn't play or was still with the #Celtics.

Mark Cuban

I can tell which deals were shot before my hip replacement and right after. Just thinking of them hurts ;)

Mark Cuban

Does anyone know what I just bought ? #SharkTank follow @MelniConnector. Tell them if you want some !

Dwain Price

Some 37 members of the media from the Fort Worth/Dallas area will attend Game 1 of the #Mavs-#Rockets playoff series.

Dwain Price

If I was an NBA coach. I would use my lower bench players to foul Dwight Howard and Josh Smith and say: "Beat me now, Houston." #allday

Parsons plans on playing tomorrow, barring no setbacks..

Earl K. Sneed

Per Rick Carlisle, Chandler Parsons (right knee) and Devin Harris (left great toe) both practiced today and are expected to play Game 1.

The #Celtics were 9-14, and then went 31-28 after they traded Rajon Rondo. The Mavs were 19-8 B4 that trade and 26-20 in games Rondo played.

Jeff Caplan

The Czar with a good point that Hack-a-Rondo could be enforced, and very mysterious why teams didn't go to it in the regular season.

Dwain Price

Since they have homecourt advantage over everyone out West except Golden State, Houstonians believe the #Rockets will win this year's title.

Tim Cato

KJ McDaniels probably wouldn't have played 10 minutes against the Mavs, but there was always a chance he could go Corey Brewer, Game 1.

Tim Cato

Here's the best (and best-lookin') playoff preview for Mavs-Rockets you'll read this week. mavsmoneyball.com/2015/4/16/8371… http://t.co/zkdmOZLtwA

Dwain Price

"He's trending the right way, but it's all very calculated. The hope is to have him available for Game 1." -- RCarlisle on CParsons

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle said guard Devin Harris (turf toe on his left foot) will play in Game 1.

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on the possibilities of Chandler Parsons playing in Game 1: "Right now signs are positive, but not definite."

Dwain Price

"I'm not going to tell you exactly what our (defensive) coverages are going 2 be. That wouldn't be very smart." -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle on Houston: "We're going to have to run them off the (3-point) line. And when you do that, they drive the heck out of it."

Dwain Price

"This is going to be very challenging facing a dominant center like Dwight Howard for 7 consecutive games.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle says signs are "promising but not definite" that Chandler Parsons will be available Game 1. Devin Harris looks ready to go.

Dwain Price

Devin Harris explained his injury as "turf toe." That's why I'm not a doctor. I thought you had to be on Astroturf to get "turf toe.''

Tim Cato

Dirk shot 52% on 3-pointers in March? I did not realize that. He's at 42% since the All Star break.

Tim Cato

Since the All Star break, the Mavericks are a below average 3-point shooting team. 16th in attempts, 19th in percentage (33.6%).

Mark Followill

All 1st round games for Mavs-Rockets are on @TXA21 so we hope you'll be tuning us in. Big thanks to all at @FSSouthwest on another great yr

Mark Followill

Byproduct of NO winning is we get a fascinating Mavs-Rockets series. So many great plot lines & its fresh. 10 yrs since last playoff series

Mark Followill

Have a real fondness for city of New Orleans, bet their crowd was something to behold last night. Truly happy for Pelicans staff & fans

Every the Mavericks said about their Rockets first round series sbnation.com/e/8190028?utm_…

Dwain Price

The #Mavs lost the 1st 2 games at hpme, then won Game 7 by 40 pts against the #Roclkets in the 1st round of the 2005 playoffs.

Tim Cato

ahahaha Dirk forgot Morey's name. "It's more of a rivalry since Cuban and what's-his-face went back and forth a little bit."

Tim Cato

Carlisle: "What's important is our group, how tight together we are and how strong our will is."

Tim Cato

Rick Carlisle: "I don't think you're going to hear Mark [Cuban] say anything during this series."

This is the 1st time the @Dallas Mavericks and Rockets have met in the playoffs since the epic seven-game series in 2005. Mavs won Game 7 by 40.

Close -- it was the 1998-99 'Cats who had Jefferson as a freshman and JET, a senior. twitter.com/ZacharyBD/stat…

Devin Harris

Looks like we got the Rockets. Second season begins now! @Dallas Mavericks #stayingintexas

PLAYOFF RICHARD JEFFERSON wait, am I doing this right?

Dirk: “I think there was a little too much up-and-down to really make a push at home court. ... But overall 50 wins is not bad at all."

Tim Cato

Dirk was rocking faded blue suede shoes after the game. That has to be a good sign.

Jeff Caplan

Appreciate the Scott Brooks bashers for chiming in.

Tim Cato

"No, officer, never seen this man before in my life. What did he do again? He hoarded food? Absolutely shameful." http://t.co/eHox0DDvyI

Tyson Chandler: "We've had an up-and-down year this year, so to be able to come out of it with 50 wins is an achievement."

Jeff Caplan

People love to bash on Scott Brooks, but getting them to 45 wins w the injuries & roster turnover is pretty decent. Lost a ton of tight gms.

Tim Cato

Please be OK, Paul George. Please.

Jeff Caplan

The Spurs went from homecourt advantage in 1st 2 rounds to none. Rockets, 20 years ago, are only team to win a title as low as 6th seed.
