Notebook: Rockets 117, Mavericks 115


Micah Powell, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:08 AM - Updated Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:08 AM

THE FACT: With 38 points, Dirk Nowitzki became just the 13th player in NBA history to score 26,000 points in a career.

THE LEAD: Chandler Parsons poured in 26 points and Dwight Howard added 21, helping Houston hold off a late Dallas charge to secure a 117-115 win, Wednesday night at the American Airlines Center.

Trailing 116-104 with 2:52 remaining in the fourth quarter, Dallas (26-21) orchestrated an 11-1 run to cut the deficit to two with 22 seconds left in regulation, but Houston (31-17) forced two missed 3-point attempts in the closing seconds from Jose Calderon to seal the victory.

QUOTABLE: "We double-teamed Dirk. We wanted to make sure Dirk didn't beat us. It got over and Calderon has a look and thank goodness he missed it."
-- Rockets coach Kevin McHale on the final possession

THE STAT: Houston shot lights-out from the field, connecting on 55.4 percent of its shots, including 9-for-21 from beyond the arc, while Dallas operated at a 46.5 percent clip.

TURNING POINT: A poor free-throw shooter, Howard was put on the line down the stretch but the big man came through, hitting 7-for-8 attempts from the charity stripe in the final five minutes of the game.

HOT: Nowitzki gave the Mavericks a chance on both the offensive and defensive ends, as he corralled 17 rebounds to go along with 38 points. Dating back to 1985-86, Nowitzki is the only player over the age of 35 to reach those marks.

NOT: Samuel Dalembert played just 12 minutes, adding two points while amassing three fouls.

BAD MOVE: With the game seemingly in hand, Houston fouled Devin Harris and Vince Carter on 3-point attempts with less than three minutes remaining, allowing Dallas to claw its way back into the game.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Jeremy Lin filled in for the injured James Harden (bruised left thumb) for the second consecutive game and shined, filling the stat sheet with 18 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

NOTABLE: Converting 11-for-11 attempts from the line, Nowitzki passed Charles Barkley (6,349) to move into 12th place on the all-time free-throws made list. ... With the win, Houston forced a season split with the Mavericks. ... The Rockets snapped a seven-game road losing streak against the Mavericks.

UP NEXT: For the Mavericks, Friday vs. Sacramento, Monday vs. Cleveland, Wednesday @ Cleveland. For the Rockets, Saturday vs. Cleveland, Wednesday vs. Phoenix, Saturday @ Milwaukee.
