David Hardisty

The problem with Josh Smith making his first two three-pointers is that we may see him take a LOT more tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Some familiar faces tonight. Hakeem Olajuwon midcourt with Leslie Alexander. Rick Smith, Bill O'Brien sitting with Rusty Hardin.

Howard Chen

Josh Smith. Looking good tonight from 3. #DALvsHOU

Jonathan Feigen

The problem with Josh Smith is he just doesn't take enough 3s.

Jonathan Feigen

Mavs made 9 of 13 shots to start game; 2 of 11 rest of quarter, both coming on fast break layups. Dallas 24, Houston 23 after 1.

David Hardisty

After a very poor start, the Rockets closed the first on a 10-2 run. 25-24 Dallas heading to 2Q. Harden has 7, D-Mo, JSmith 5 each.

Jonathan Feigen

As we always say, only way to prepare to play NBA basketball is by playing NBA basketball. Jones obviously feeling it after four minutes.

Jenny Dial Creech

End of the 1st - Mavericks 25, Rockets 24.

Jenny Dial Creech

Jones’ last game was Nov. 3. He was excited pregame to be able to get back.

Howard Chen

LOUD cheers upon Terrence Jones' name being announced. 41 games. Imagine that. Glad he's back. #RedNation

Jenny Dial Creech

Lots of fans on their feet as Terrence Jones enters the game. Nice moment at the Toyota Center.

Jonathan Feigen

Terrence Jones checks in for first time since Nov. 3 to a nice ovation.

David Hardisty

Welcome back, @Terrence Jones. He enters the game at the 4:49 mark of the first quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets defense just looks completely different without Dwight inside. Didn't show against Lakers, for obvious reasons. A mess tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

Dirk collided face first with Harden. Immediately went to bench.

Howard Chen

Crowd boos as Parsons touches the ball. He responds with another hoop. #DALvsHOU

Howard Chen

Parsons comes out and nails a 3. Last time he came here, he was 0-fer from distance. #DALvsHOU

Jonathan Feigen

Mavs score on 5 of first 7 possessions. Rockets politely refusing to do much of anything until lower bowl crowd arrives.

Jonathan Feigen

Parsons heads to Rockets bench for a few words with McHale, Bickerstaff before the tip.

Howard Chen

Loud boos at Toyota Center as Chandler Parsons' name gets announced, as he expected and as everybody expected. #DALvsHOU

Jonathan Feigen

Boos again for Chandler Parsons in introductions.

David Hardisty

Loud boos for Chandler Parsons as he's introduced.

Jenny Dial Creech

Joey Dorsey starting in place of Dwight Howard tonight. #Rockets #Mavericks starting in about 2 minutes.

Tarik Black

Came through @WirelessPlanet_ to get my screen fixed. It sucks when you crack your screen but they got me right. Thanks

Howard Chen

Terrence Jones is back after missing 41 GP, but he's grateful it wasn't any longer. Scary times for the #Rockets fwd: cbsloc.al/18wcMio

Jonathan Feigen

With Dwight Howard out, Joey Dorsey gets his second-consecutive start at center for Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

I would be shocked. He's been out for almost 3 months. Dorsey likely starts at center. RT @HTOWNFAN12: @Jonathan Feigen is jones starting

Howard Chen

Rick Carlisle on Harden: "Right now, there's nobody playing better basketball on the planet." #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Rick Carlisle on Harden: "There's nobody playing better ball on the planet."

David Hardisty

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on James Harden: "Right now, there's no one playing better basketball on the planet."

Howard Chen

Terrence Jones will play. Meanwhile, McHale says he doubts Dwight Howard will be able to play tonight. #DALvsHOU

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets likely to hold Jones to about 20 minutes, but McHale said he'd see how things go. Has been out since Nov. 4.

Jenny Dial Creech

McHale said Terrence Jones will play tonight. Does not think Dwight Howard will play.

Jonathan Feigen

McHale said he'd be shocked if Howard plays. In other words, he's out.

David Hardisty

Terrence Jones will play tonight.

Donatas Motiejunas

Big game tonight! Are you in? #Pursuit #Rockets http://t.co/wOCi6Y4Bqt

Jason Terry was asked today on Morey-Cuban feud. "They haven’t shot one jumper, so they’re a non factor in this game" cbsloc.al/1v5ZVO7

Pretty cool screencap from when my buddy @JohnnyTheChu & #RedNation conquered the NBA, I mean, #NBA2K15. #PURSUIT http://t.co/q7vB9Vt98U

Jenny Dial Creech

Terry was asked about the 'rivalry' between Morey and Cuban. "Neither one of them has taken a jumper, so it's a non factor."

Jenny Dial Creech

Dallas has lost 3 in a row- Jason Terry says key tonight is to 'kick them while they're down.'

Jenny Dial Creech

As expected, Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones are both questionable, game time decisions for tonight vs. Dallas.

Howard Chen

Both Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones are listed as questionable w update coming pregame. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Game-time decision. Listed as questionable. RT @AlekxiousDiaz: @Jonathan Feigen is Dwight out?

Jonathan Feigen

I asked him. He said has to shoot better. Has since. RT @CanOnlyBeQV: @Jonathan Feigen do you think Harden would consider the 3pt Contest?

Jonathan Feigen

Yeah, I was making fun of me. Took me a minute to delete/retweet. RT @grawlsy: @Jonathan Feigen speaking of, you misspelled Oladipo.

Jonathan Feigen

Dunk contest field -- Antetokounmpo, Oladipo, Plumlee, Lavine -- challenge is to get people in 15 yrs to say contest not what it used to be.

Jonathan Feigen

Either that, or to be names that stump the contestants of a spelling bee.
