Howard Chen

Brewer on scorin 15 on the #Mavs: “It feels good, esp playin against a 4mer team." He & JET combined for 31: cbsloc.al/1IYbImH #Rockets

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets up 1-0 in series, lead a playoff series for the first time since 2009, the last season in which they won a playoff series.

Jenny Dial Creech

Former Mavericks Terry and Brewer ignite Rockets in Game 1 win blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jenny Dial Creech

Chandler Parsons on his first half injury: “I just landed and I felt some pain. My leg just kind of gave out on me."

Jenny Dial Creech

“I am going to get called for fouls sometimes,” Dwight Howard said. “I just need to be able to play through it."

Jonathan Feigen

Brewer: "You have to stay with it. It feels great, especially playing against a former team. They traded me away for a bag of chips."

Jonathan Feigen

Corey Brewer hit 3 of 4 3s in the fourth quarter. He was shooting 8.3 percent on 3s in April.

Jenny Dial Creech

Jason Terry had 16 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals in Rockets win over Mavs in Game 1. “This is my time of year,” he said.

Calvin Watkins

Dwight Howard said the foul troubles were frustrating but he had to play through it.

Calvin Watkins

Kevin McHale on Harden: "James is a handful, he's a tough guy to handle."

Calvin Watkins

Dirk Nowitzki said he's got to handle the ball and double-teams better.

Calvin Watkins

James Harden said Rockets got to get greedy and get Game 2.

David Hardisty

McHale praising Capela, saying he works very hard and nothing seems to faze him. Sounds like he's gaining some trust in the rookie.

Jenny Dial Creech

"Our bench was huge tonight," -Rockets coach Kevin McHale

David Hardisty

Plenty of heroes tonight: Ariza (12 pts, 11 reb, 6 ast), TJones (19 pts, 9 reb, 6 ast), Terry (4-7 from three) and Brewer (15 pts) all huge.

Calvin Watkins

Jason Terry set the tone early as he finished with 16 points.

Calvin Watkins

Chandler Parsons went 5-15 in 36 minutes. Dirk Nowitzki scored 24 points on 10-14 shooting.

Calvin Watkins

Harden with 24 points and 11 assists. Rockets shot 44.7 percent from the floor. Terrence Jones with 19 points and nine rebounds.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets win, 118-108 to take Game 1 and we got streamers coming down.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets go up 1-0 against Dallas in the first round of the playoffs with a 118-108 win tonight. Game 2 is Tuesday night.

David Hardisty

FINAL: "Not a very good team" 118, Mavs 108. Harden 4-11 FG, Dwight in foul trouble... doesn't matter. Rockets roll to 1-0 series lead.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets got a lot out of Terrence Jones tonight. He has 19 points, 9 rebounds. Has been key in this one.

Jenny Dial Creech

Brewer and Terry both won a title with the Mavericks in 2011. They are torching their former team tonight. Terry has 16 and Brewer 14.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale has Terry in with Howard pacing, waiting to return. Wanting to avoid hack-a-Rocket for one last possession?

Calvin Watkins

Cuban wanted a travel. He didn't get it. Harden gets two free throws.

David Hardisty

Corey Brewer ... and-one! He makes the freebie and Rockets now up 109-95, 3:20 left.

Calvin Watkins

Dirk Nowitzki yelling at his teammates. Corey Brewer scores on a layup. It's 108-95 with 3:20 left.

Jonathan Feigen

Dirk has been playoff Dirk in many ways. He's 9 of 11. But he has six turnovers.

Howard Chen

And the #Rockets react with Hack-a-Rondo! hahahahha I like it

Calvin Watkins

Now we have Hack a Rondo.

David Hardisty

Rockets respond by immediately fouling Rondo.

Howard Chen

Here we go... Hack-a-Rocket.

Jonathan Feigen

With 4:09 left, we're back to hack-a-Rocket. Smith to line with Rockets up 10.

David Hardisty

Here comes Hack-a-Rocket... Josh Smith going to the line.

Calvin Watkins

This is Harden's second career playoff double-double. First time in double digits assists and points.

Calvin Watkins

Love how the Rockets fans yell at Mark Cuban and he just laughs.

Calvin Watkins

Harden with 11 assists. A kick out to Brewer who nails another three.

Jenny Dial Creech

Man, @Corey Brewer is feeling it tonight. His third 3 and Rockets back up 10.

Howard Chen

Brewer for three-wer. Okay that's a stretch hahahha #RedNation

Howard Chen

You get the feeling the Mavs have one more strong push left in them. They keep hanging around...

David Hardisty

Harden with his 10th assist, blowing past Chandler Parsons and finding Brewer for a corner trey! 100-89 Houston, 6:07 left.

Calvin Watkins

Brewer with a three as Harden gets his 10th assists of the night. Dallas needs a timeout and it's 100-89, Houston.

Jenny Dial Creech

Corey Brewer picked a good time to start making his 3-point shots again.

Calvin Watkins

With Howard out, Josh Smith has to protect the rim with Terrence Jones.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight was out seven seconds. Mavericks layup.

Howard Chen

Dwight Howard. Fifth foul with seven minutes remaining. He's off the floor. James Harden back in. #Rockets

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight picks up his fifth foul throwing out a hip on a pick-and-roll. Checks out with 7:03 left, Rockets up 8. Smith, Harden in.

Calvin Watkins

That's five on Howard. Questionable one.

David Hardisty

Dwight Howard called for his fifth foul.

Howard Chen

This time, it's Corey Brewer's turn to hit a shot at the shot clock buzzer. #ClutchCity

Jenny Dial Creech

Ariza’s 3-pointer ruled a two - his foot was on the line. Rockets up 90-81 with 8:30 to play.

Howard Chen

Turns out that isn't a three. Refs review it and call the Ariza shot a two. Ah well, still clutch. #ClutchCity

David Hardisty

They have already reviewed the Ariza three and called it a two (foot on the line). 90-81 Rockets, 8:45 left.

Howard Chen

Trevor Ariza. 3-3 on three's so far today. That one at the shot clock buzzer. #RedNation

David Hardisty

WOW.... a massive three by Trevor Ariza on a broken play as the shot clock expired. 91-81 Rockets.

Calvin Watkins

Talked to a Rockets official today just praising Trevor Ariza. Professional. Steady.

Calvin Watkins

Howard has played 12 minutes due to foul trouble.

Howard Chen

Dwight Howard back on the floor to start the 4th. Has 4 fouls. #Rockets

Calvin Watkins

Nowitzki with 20 on 8-10 from the floor. Parsons is 3-11.

Calvin Watkins

Harden with 19, TJones with 12, Terry with 16. Rockets shooting 48.4 percent after three. Dallas at 42.5 clip.

Jonathan Feigen

Mavs score final 7 points of Q3 as Ellis hits a 3 at buzzer. Rockets 84, Mavs 77. Rockets need Dwight to play basketball for a while here.

Howard Chen

Monta Ellis sinks a three at the 3rd quarter buzzer, #Rockets lead it 84-77 after 3. Harden with 19 points and 9 assists. Jet with 16.

David Hardisty

Monta Ellis hits a three at the buzzer and it's 84-77 Rockets heading to the fourth. Dwight must stay on the floor now.

Jenny Dial Creech

Headed to the fourth quarter, #Rockets 84, #Mavs 77 - the last Ellis 3 (terrific shot) is being reviewed.

Calvin Watkins

Monta Ellis hits a three while falling into the crowd. It's 84-77 after three, Rockets.

David Hardisty

As @moisekapenda pointed out before that missed slam, Clint Capela looks exhausted.

Howard Chen

Oh, Capela. Almost threw the HOUSE down there. "Almost" being the key word lol

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza worked to stretch it out a bit. Seems OK. Brewer checking in.

Calvin Watkins

Space City Seniors turned it out this evening at Toyota Center. On their A game.

Calvin Watkins

Harden with a complete game. 19 points, nine assists, 11 foul shots. Drives to the basket.

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza hobbling a bit. Rockets take a time out to check on him. About time Brewer normally checks in.

Calvin Watkins

It's pretty clear that when Chandler Parsons went out he was playing well. Since he's returned, struggled with his shot. He's 3-11.

Jonathan Feigen

Since Dwight went out, 7 consecutive Dallas shots have been in the paint, most at the rim. Made just 2. But can't give up plane like that.

Calvin Watkins

You know it's a long night when Josh Smith is throwing up alley oops to Clint Capela.

David Hardisty

Harden to Josh Smith who immediately fires the alley-oop to Capela. *wipes tear*

Howard Chen

#CapelaDunk. And the rook's FIRED UP. #Rockets up 80-66 midway through the 3rd.

Jonathan Feigen

Devin Harris (left big toe) is doubtful to return.

Howard Chen

The ageless Jason Terry, ladies and gentlemen. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have outscored Mavs by 12 in the 11 minutes Howard's been the game. Just cannot reach like that, especially for rebouding position.

Jenny Dial Creech

Carlisle just picked up a technical foul.

David Hardisty

Rockets now up 72-62 and Carlisle picks up a technical after the timeout. Harden now at 16 points, 8 assists.
