When the Rockets set the franchise record for blocked shots of 20, one more than they got tonight, they were not led that night by Hakeem Olajuwon. Not by Ralph Sampson. Nope. Rookie Jim Peterson, who would averaged a half of a blocked shot that season, got six. – 11:51 PM

You can use the Luka’s not playing excuse all you want. But HOU kept giving the Mavs the ball (23 TO), & Mavs kept flinging up 3s on a night when they couldn’t make them. HOU blocked 19 shots (Mavs opp record), But you’ve just got to keep driving it and make refs blow the whistle – 11:13 PM

Kevin Porter Jr. two assists from his second triple double. His 10 rebounds ties his season high. Seven minutes left. – 10:34 PM

The Rockets have 21 turnovers. Also, the sun rose in the East this morning. – 10:32 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
The Rockets aren’t forcing turnovers, but all the blocks are allowing them to get easy points in transition, which is important because their half court offense has been lousy – 10:25 PM

9-0 Mavericks run ties the score at 64. This after a 15-0 run gave Houston a 57-51 lead. And that had followed a 9-0 Dallas run.
This game has the runs. – 10:08 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
If memory serves, we’ve had an 11-0 Mavs’ run, a 15-0 Houston run and, now, a 9-0 Mavs blitz to rally them into a tie at 64. Midpoint of the third. – 10:07 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
The Rockets should give transition defense a try – 10:06 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Again, Christian Wood checks in early with the Mavericks needing his scoring. – 10:01 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets have gone from a nine-point deficit to a nine-point lead, their largest. Mavs misfiring, making 33.3 %. But Rockets also have a season-high nine blocked shots barely three minutes into the second half. – 10:00 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
One of those nights when Jaden Hardy might offer a new little spark off the bench. – 10:00 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Rockets in much better spirits right now than on Monday night. Might have something to do with the fact that they’re up 64-55 with 8:51 to go in the third. Green and Sengun leading the way with 25 combined points. Garuba chipping in strongly with 10. – 10:00 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets ran that BOB like crazy last season. Amazing how often it worked. Not so much this season, but set up Green for a slam there. – 9:56 PM

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
No surprise that Mavs offense is struggling w/o Luka Shoot 33.3% despite an 11-0 run that gave them a 9 pt lead. HOU answered that run with a 15-0 run to end the half. HOU 57-51. Only 3rd time all season Mavs have trailed at half (2 to NO & 3 to Utah) 2nd half soon @971TheFreak9:46 PM

Rockets lead 57-51 at the half after closing the first half on a 15-0 run. Tim has 11 pts, Wood has 10 pts. – 9:42 PM

The Thunder scored 46 points on 41 drives from the perimeter by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander tonight vs. the Wizards.
Per @SecondSpectrum, both of those numbers are season-highs for all NBA players. SGA held the previous highs (41 points on 39 drives by him vs. Dallas).

Rockets 57, Mavericks 51 at half. Green with a 3 off a hell of a Garuba screen. Rockets close with a 15-0 run. The Spanish Shane Battier with 10 points, four rebounds in 10 minutes. Green with 11. Nice bounce back from KPJ. Had five assists in the half. – 9:40 PM

Up next: Friday in Houston. – 9:25 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
In Doncic’s absence, Dinwiddie figured to pick up much of the offensive load, or at least contribute his usual 18-plus points — but he is 1-for-7 from the field. Most of his shots have been short.
Probably not a coincidence that he played 41 minutes last night. – 9:23 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
With Bertans picking up three quick fouls, C-Wood returns with his two. He played just five minutes in the first quarter. – 9:20 PM

Boban Marjanovic’s video tribute between quarters:
— Luka and most of Mavs’ support staff stopped to watch the whole thing.

Dwight Powell has a nice bruise building under his right eye after he was kneed there by Kenyon Martin Jr., who was doing a chin-up on the rim after a dunk. Mavericks trail 31-28 after a quarter. – 9:11 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Officials deem K.J. Martin’s dunk + ensuing knee to Dwight Powell’s head as a Flagrant 1. – 9:08 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Luka Doncic is walking toward the refs reviewing this unsportsmanlike call, waving his hand in disgust, as if he has nothing better to do than pick up a(nother) technical foul when he’s not even playing. – 9:07 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Campazzo has given the Mavs a nice spark: Entered game with Dallas trailing 15-9. He has 4 assists, 2 rebounds and 2 steals, including the backcourt steal that led to Ntilikina’s tying 3-pointer. – 9:06 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
K.J. Martin hit with a T for hanging on the rim and a kick to Dwight Powell face on the dunk. Officials checking video to see if it should be a flagrant foul. – 9:06 PM

Wizards 14 3-pointers in the first half vs. Thunder was a franchise record for the first half.

Jason Kidd: “The Rockets, Silas has done a really good job with these guys. They’re young, they’re quick. They can score. They’re not afraid. On the defensive end, if you don’t take care of it, they’re going to come up with deflections and steals and get out and run.” – 8:17 PM
Mark Followill @MFollowill
A good note, albeit early, the Mavs are second in the league in steals at 9.1 a game. The highest the Mavs have ever finished is 4th in 2004-05 and 2011-12. Luka leads the way with just over 2 a game – 8:17 PM
