Monta Ellis limping around a bit, but he's up and standing at half court during Dirk's free throws. Not coming out.
Monta is hurt.
Harden drives and scores, foul, 3pp. Houston up 127-123 with 56.8 sec. left.
Harden's gonna Harden.
Do not go gentle into that dark night rage, rage against the dying of the light
His 30 pts tonight are a playoff career high for Monta.
With a quick timeout trade for Steph Curry to fill in at point guard, I do believe the Mavericks can still win this one.
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
Harden matches his playoff career high with 37 pts.
The Mavericks are back to running the Dirk-Monta pick-and-roll with a frequency not seen since the Rondo trade.
That's Monta's 6th pt of this half.
Tyson Chandler 2-6 at the line.
Josh Smith is even making free throws.
By the way, I can't say I agree with going hack-a-whoever when James Harden is on the bench.
Today's dance cam is brought to you by ALCOHOL
Dirk briefly mimes Dwight's flying elbows after that ball goes out of bounds.

Harden had 18 at the half, and 16 in the 3rd period.
Chandler Parsons walks over and talks trash to Dwight Howard near the scorer's table before the 4th. Parsons is trying to impact the series.
Old school ABA defense going on in Dallas tonight. In other words, you may score if you play, because nobody is playing any defense.
That Charlie V ball fake was majestic.

Oh. Did I mention Brewer hit a 3? Well, he just hit another one.
In pregame, Carlisle was talking about how Brewer gets those 3s. And he just made one. Houston up 86-82 with 4:50 to go in the 3rd period.
Aminu screams, slaps his chest after finishing over Dwight.
Harden stirring it up out there.
