Dwain Price

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

Earl K. Sneed

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

Carlisle calls timeout after Tyson and Dirk trap Dorsey, who feeds Ariza for an easy dunk. 69-64 Rockets with 6:36 in the 3rd. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with his 2nd triple of the night. But the Rockets are 10 of 21 from deep as a team. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

21 pts on 10-of-16 shooting now for Monta Ellis. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

"I'm happy he's here. He's one of the better point guards in the league.'' -- Chandler Parsons on Rajon Rondo

Earl K. Sneed

I just had to give @Dwain Price a tutorial on Slim Thug, the name that Tyson Chandler calls D.P. We're in Houston, so now's a good time.

Mark Followill

Rockets 54 Mavs 53 at half on @FSSouthwest. Monta w/ 17 for Dallas & Chandler Parsons who scored only 8 in return to Houston in Nov. has 13

Dwain Price

#Rockets lead at the half 54-53.. Monta has 17 pts, Parsons 13, Aminu 8, Dirk 5, Tyson 4. #Mavs shooting 46.7%; Rockets shooting 43.5%.

Earl K. Sneed

Despite 17 pts from Monta Ellis and 13 for Chandler Parsons, the @Dallas Mavericks trail 54-53 at the half. 13 pts for Josh Smith. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

2 FTs for Dirk and the @Dallas Mavericks take a 51-49 lead with 1:00 left before the half. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Chandler Parsons is doing his thing! 13 pts on 5-of-7 shooting and 3 of 4 from three vs. his former team. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Like I said, Parsons came to play. Game ties 47-47 with 1:57 to go in the first half.

Mark Followill

Rockets lead Mavs 46-44 with 2:35 left in half on @FSSouthwest. Donatas Motiejunas has 11. James Harden with 9

Earl K. Sneed

13 pts for Monta Ellis and 10 pts for Chandler Parsons, but the @Dallas Mavericks trail 46-44 with 2:35 in the half. 13 turnovers already.

Earl K. Sneed

10 pts for Parsons after that three to tie the game at 39-all. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Parsons came to play. Boo or not.

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons with the athletic adjustment in midair, but the @Dallas Mavericks trail 39-36 with 5:22 in the half. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Aminu brought his pogo stick to the game. He's jumping all over the place. #skycity

Earl K. Sneed

Al-Farouq Aminu is BALLIN'! #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo to Aminu for three, and the inch within three, 37-34. 8 pts for Aminu off the bench. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

9:02 left in the half and the Rockets have batted out of a 10-point hole to now lead the @Dallas Mavericks, 33-29. 9 Mavs turnovers. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

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

Dwain Price

You got to love Dwight Powell's activity. And Aminu's, too.

Dwain Price

#Mavs were up 21-11. Now they're down 28-25. That's a 17-4 run by the #Rockets.

Mark Followill

Monta with 10. Mavs lead 25-24 after 1 in Houston on @FSSouthwest

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the 1st period 25-24. Ellis has 10 pts, Parsons 5. Mavs shooting 45.8%; #Rockets shooting 39.1%.

Earl K. Sneed

Leading by as many as 10, the @Dallas Mavericks take just a 25-24 edge into the 2nd. Mavs shot 45.8% to Rockets' 39.1%. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

#Mavs squandering another big 1st quarter lead.

Earl K. Sneed

Wow. Go get that board then, Dwight Powell. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Jet's on the runway. But it's a different runway. #Mavs

Earl K. Sneed

Monta with the steal, the feed to Parsons, who feeds Monta on the break for the score. 23-14 @Dallas Mavericks. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Loud ovation as Terrence Jones returns for the Rockets and checks in. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Motiejunas for three, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout with a 21-14 advantage and 4:49 in the 1st. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Aminu for three, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 21-11. Nice way to come in on the 2nd night of a back-to-back. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Aminu's 3 put #Mavs up 21-11.

Earl K. Sneed

Already 6 pts for Monta Ellis and 5 pts for Parsons to boost the @Dallas Mavericks to a 16-11 edge with 6:30 in the 1st. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

I guess Dirk fouled Harden with his (Dirk's) nose. #ouch

Earl K. Sneed

The Rockets' defense just opened up like the Red Sea for a Parsons layup. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Tonight's view for Mavs-Rockets. #DALatHOU @ Houston Toyota Center instagram.com/p/ya0wUaNkiQ/

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson with the emphatic finish, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 12-5 early with 8:46 left in the 1st. #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons shuts up the boos with a three, and the @Dallas Mavericks open the game on a10-0 run before a Harden trey. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Parsons hit his 1st shot. Could it be a good sign?

Dwain Price

Parsons touched the ball. And got booed. #sosilly

Earl K. Sneed

Monta with a ridiculous score, and the @Dallas Mavericks open on a 7-0 run. #DALvsHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis opens the scoring with a swooping move to the basket. Dirk then drills a three. Nice start for the @Dallas Mavericks. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

So I guess this means Parsons is going to get booed every time he touches the ball. So silly. Let it go.

Dwain Price

It's cold in tnis building. Turn up the heat, #Rockets.

Earl K. Sneed

No surprise as Parsons is booed in introductions. I think he'll handle this go-round a little bit differently than the last time. #DALatHOU

Dwain Price

Parsons, as expected, got booed in pregame intros. Wasn't it the #Rockets who didn't match his offer sheet from the #Mavs?

Mark Followill

Mavs at Rockets about to start on @FSSouthwest. Mavs (6-3) on 2nd of back to backs

Dwain Price

No Dwight Howard tonight for the #Rockets. Then again, Houston beat the #Mavs earlier this year in this building without Howard.

Earl K. Sneed

It's NBA Fit Week, so Chandler Parsons has on a red shooting shirt in pregame as he returns to Toyota Center for a 2nd time. Everyone does.

Mark Followill

Mavs at Houston, 7p on @FSSouthwest. Terrence Jones returns for 1st game since Nov. Dwight Howard doubtful...more on Mavs Live at 630

Haven't had a chance to run Buffalo Bayou on 1 of our trips to Houston recently. Ran there today, area has had a major facelift & looks good

Greg Smith

God has a plan for everyone!

Mark Followill

Combo of going to line & 3pt shots at unique pace for Harden this yr: 9.2 FTA & 7.0 3ptA. Gilbert Arenas only 1 to avg 9 FT & 7 3s (06-07)

Mark Followill

NBA leading scorer James Harden (27.6 ppg), is at 37 ppg over last 4. In those games shooting 54% & avg 14.5 FTA/game

Jeff Caplan

Since KD returned on NYE, Thunder have played 13 gms and have LOST ground to Suns AND Pels. When does the run start? foxsports.com/southwest/stor…

Mark Followill

Reminder, Mavs are back on @FSSouthwest tonight, 7p from Houston. The Rockets Dwight Howard is a game-time decision with an ankle injury

Jeff Caplan

Imagine if Pau had gone to OKC, how mightily would he have changed that team? Or San Antonio, oh man.

Jeff Caplan

Got to feel good for Pau. MT @Kevin Ding: Pau acknowledges the damage done to him by all those Lakers trade overtures: bleacherreport.com/articles/23452…

Mark Followill

Gotta love The Iceman RT @CSC331982: George Gervin: I don't feel @KlayThompson broke my record via @Howard Beck ble.ac/1JHoRP5

Dwain Price

Naturally the #Mavs are still getting used to Rajon Rondo. They were 19-8 before he arrived and have been 11-8 since his arrival.

Dwain Price

#Mavs at #Rockets tonight at 7. Boy, this (Dallas) team desperately needs a win. They've lost 6 of their last 10 games.

Earl K. Sneed

Inside Report: @Dallas Mavericks look to slow down James Harden, high-octane Rockets to begin three-game road trip mavs.com/game-47-mavs-r…

Earl K. Sneed

The @Dallas Mavericks haven't lost four in a row since Jan. 2-9, 2013. They'll try to avoid that feat tonight in Houston. #DALatHOU

Jeff Caplan

How awesome is it that the biggest newsmaker and most quoted player at Super Bowl media day was Marshawn Lynch? Now that's deflating.

Greg Smith

Tough loss tonight. Gotta get this W in Houston tomorrow night!!! #GS4 #MFFL #donthateonthebrodieinstagram.com/p/yYz-YUk4Iv/

Jeff Caplan

What do the Spurs, Mavs and Warriors have in common? All lost in the last 6 days to those sad sack Bulls who Thibs lost.

Mark Followill

Just landed in Houston, looks like it was a heck of a game at Oracle. Chicago wins in OT. Only 2nd home loss for Golden State

Inside Report: @Dallas Mavericks fall to Grizzlies at home for first three-losing streak of season mavs.com/game-46-mavs-v… #DALvsMEM

Dwain Price

The #Mavs are 0-3 in games where coach Rick Carlisle has tried to reach his 600th career victory.

Mark Followill

Mavs have 1st 3-game losing streak of season, fall 109-90 to Memphis. Zach Randolph was great, 22 pts, 10/15 FG. Mavs 30-16 & off to Houston

Jeff Caplan

Holy crap alert: In Jan., #Warriors OffRtg is 116.4 (No. 1) & DefRtg is 99.2 (No. 6) for insane NetRtg of 17.2 (No. 1). Atl 14.3, LAC 11.7.

Earl K. Sneed

Hit for over 50 pts vs. Chicago & over 40 against New Orleans the last 8 seconds of the shot clock, Carlisle says Mavs gave up 52 tonight.

Earl K. Sneed

INSTANT ANALYSIS: @Dallas Mavericks fall to Grizzlies at home for first three-losing streak of season mavs.com/game-46-mavs-v… #DALvsMEM

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: Grizzlies 109, @Dallas Mavericks 90; 19 pts for Parsons & Monta. 22 pts & 10 rebs for Randolph. #DALvsMEM

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Grizzlies 109, #Mavs 90. Parsons and Monta had 19 each, Dirk 11, Tyson 10.

Jeff Caplan

Also another pretty lousy night from Rondo: 7 pts (3-8), 5A, 7R, 3 TOs. Mavs will drop to 11-8 w him (he sat out 1 loss).

Jeff Caplan

As crazy as Spurs season has been they're about to be just 1 game behind Dallas for sixth.

Dwain Price

Yep. All reserves are in the game. It's over....except the final score.

Dwain Price

With 5:18 left, Monta goes out. He's probably out for good, since the #Mavs play tomorrow in Houston. Memphis up 100-79.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle might be thinking about tomorrow night in Houston now with 5:18 left, pulling his starters. #DALvsMEM

Earl K. Sneed

16 of Randolph's 22 pts have come in the second half. #DALvsMEM

Jeff Caplan

Make that 10-14 FG for Randolph now. Unconscious.

Earl K. Sneed

22 pts & 9 rebounds now for Zach Randolph, and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 98-79 with 6:28 left. #DALvsMEM

Jeff Caplan

West so crazy deep w talent that Z-Bo can't get All-Star sniff. Putting on a rainbow shooting clinic in Dallas, 9-13 FG for 20 pts + 9 reb.
