After struggling somewhat in the opening minutes and falling behind by as many as nine in the second quarter, Houston closed the first half on a run to take a 64-61 lead into the break. The Rockets then went gangbusters in the third quarter, outscoring the Mavs 44-17 and turning the game into a laugher.
O.J. Mayo led Dallas with 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting. The Mavs shot 47.5 percent and made 12 threes of their own, but they turned the ball over 18 times, which led to 32 Rockets' points.
