It's a GREAT day for fantasy footballers who have Demaryius Thomas. (I don't)
John Brown. These tiptoe catches. Musta adored Cris Carter growing up. Really impressive today.
That would shatter the NBA single season mark of 891 3PT FG set by New York in 2012-13.
Here’s an interesting nugget: At their current pace, the Rockets are on track to make 984 3PT FG over the course of the 82 game season.
Cool moment with TY Hilton scoring a TD like he really wanted today
Beverley and Howard did not practice today - both are listed as questionable for tomorrow night. Last night, Pat said he would play.
Nothing new with Sixers losing, but ex-Rocket Robert Covington had the best NBA game of his young career: 4-6 FG, 4-4 3ptrs, 14pts in 13:52
Chandler Parsons on fans booing: "I think they forget I was a restricted free agent and the organization could have matched my contract."
Rockets have NBA's #1 Defensive Rating. Asked if he can notice a defensive intensity increase over last year, Parsons said simply, "No."
Harden has four 30-point games this season, tied with LeBron and Kobe for most in NBA.
In each of Rockets past 3 wins, Harden scored the go-ahead basked with 90 seconds or less left. Had 3-point play with 28.8 left tonight.
Mavericks have been by far the NBA's best offensive team. Their 92 points their 2-fewest of season. They are 0-3 when falling short of 100.
Parsons (cont): "But I understand that. They're passionate. They're going to support their team and I'm going to support myself."
Parsons: "The fans that booed, I think sometimes they forget I was a restricted free agent & the organization could've matched my contract."
Said Chandler Parsons: "That was nice of them to play that video. That was real classy."
Ariza said he learned more about the Dallas-Houston rivalry tonight. “I see what it means. The good guys won tonight."
Beverley said of his career-high six 3-pointers that he was just in the right spots.
Trevor Ariza: “When all else fails, all you can do is try to turn up the intensity defensively, and that’s what we did."
A funny moment during D-Mo postgame interviews: "We play our ass off… I cannot really say that."
D-Mo on getting fouled by Chandler Parsons: " It’s basketball. Nothing personal. Everything was good."
D-Mo called the Rockets victory tonight “a good win for this town."
Beverley asked if he would play on Monday (Rockets host the Knicks): “Of course."
Beverley: "I have to be smart. I can’t go out there like I usually do when I’m hurt. It’s a long season. I have to be patient with it."
Beverley said they played it safe by taking him out, but he was confident he would be playing on Monday.
Pat Beverley said he would be back for Monday's game. Said he tweaked him hamstring and was just being smart about not going back in.
Meanwhile, Anthony Davis is a man possessed tonight.
McHale said they missed "10, 12, 14 wide open 3's" tonight, but that they need to take those shots: "We don't have a whole lot of slashers."
Easy to overlook key to Rockets win. D-Mo outscored D-No.
James Harden took the mic after the game and yelled to fans that the Rockets need them to be like tonight every night.
Sorry, but the Rockets, without Dwight Howard & Terrence Jones, beating the "juggernaut" Mavs in Parsons' return is laugh-out-loud funny.

Wow- what a finish! Rockets win 95-92.
ROCKETS WIN! FINAL: Rockets 95, Mavericks 92. What a close by James Harden (32 pts, 8 reb, 4 ast, 2 stl)!!

Really smart play by Harden to force the action, going two-for-one. Rockets should get the ball back with 28+ ticks left.

Needless to say, the Rockets do not need another injury right now. Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Pat Beverley.
Pat Beverley will not return- sore hamstring.
Ruling on the floor stands- that will stay a personal foul on Parsons.
