"The truth is we were fighting uphill virtually all night after the very beginning of the game.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

More disappointing than the Thunder going belly up in NY? The Pelicans rolling over at home to the Nuggets.

"I think probably just bad spacing. Guys trying to make the extra pass or the homerun pass. Im guilty of it.'' -- Rondo on root of turnovers

Mark Followill

Mavs lose 99-94 in Houston. Season hi 24 turnovers w/ 1 on late inbounds again. Mavs got 33 from Monta & hold Harden to 17 but fall to 30-17

Jeff Caplan

Spurs move into a tie with Mavs for 6th.

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle said the @Dallas Mavericks' 24 turnovers tonight were the decisive factor of the game. Mavs entered yesterday averaging just 12.

Derek Page

If only Rondo (atrocious offense, dominant defense) and Monta (awesome offense, doormat defense) could be combined into one player.

Derek Page

The Dallas #Mavericks are a mess. 4 straight losses and a season high in turnovers (24) in losing to the D12-less #Rockets.

#Mavs missing golden opportunities. Tyson has to make those free throws.

Dwain Price

Tyson misses both FTs.

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson missed the first FT. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

The refs say it's a Flagrant 1 foul on Harden. Two shots for Tyson and the #Mavs get the ball. It's the right call.

Flagrant 1 foul on Harden with 16.3 seconds left. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Refs are reviewing it.

Dwain Price

The MVP went head hunting on Tyson. #Mavs get 2 shots and the ball?

Earl K. Sneed

That's got to be at least a flagrant 1. Likely even a 2. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Flagrant man. Wow! That wasn't necessary.

Earl K. Sneed

Wow. Harden just clotheslined Tyson Chandler. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with the lefty layup. Three-point game with 43.5 left. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

How did you lose a man under the hoop on an inbounds pass?

Earl K. Sneed

Harden got away with the right forearm to the chest of Tyson Chandler, but the possession remains with Houston. 95-92 Rockets w/ 1:39 left.

Earl K. Sneed

Josh Smith for three, but Parsons answers with a trey of his own to keep the deficit at five. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Charge on Parsons to wipe out a potential three-point play that could have tied the game. Big call. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Clutch, the Rockets' mascot, just sprayed a Mavs fan in the crowd with silly string. That's harsh, man. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

It's a career-high 5 blocks for Aminu off the bench. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Al-Farouq Aminu has earned himself some additional playing time tonight. The kid has been awesome off the @Dallas Mavericks' bench. #DALatHOU

Mark Followill

31 pts for Monta (8th time of 30+ this yr). James Harden has 15 and Rockets lead Mavs 81-78 after 3 on @FSSouthwest

Dwain Price

What a pass -- to Dirk from Monta. #Mavs down 78-76 with 58.1 sec. to go in the 3rd period.

If Monta Ellis is not in the All-Star game, I'll be speechless for a few hours.

Monta Ellis, ask the fellas. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

2:50 left in the 3rd and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 74-68. 27 pts for Ellis and 13 pts for Parsons. No other Mavs in double figures. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Hakeem The Dream Olajuwon is in the crib.

Earl K. Sneed

Hakeem The Dream is courtside, and his mere presence just ignited this crowd. @Dallas Mavericks will need to score in bunches to seize control.

Dwain Price

If not for All-Star G Monta Ellis, the #Mavs would be getting blown out.

Earl K. Sneed

I really wish the Western Conference coaches were all watching Monta Ellis' game right now. Straight ballin'... #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

You mean to tell me little J.J. Barea ran through big old Donatas Motiejunas??? #DALatHOU
