Harden fuels furious 9-1 finish as Rockets put away high-powered Mavs

With Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones still out for the Rockets, it seemed they had little chance going up against the NBA's #1 offense. In fact, I overheard some members of the Dallas media debating before the game whether the Mavericks would win by 30 or 40. Instead, James Harden crashed the party. Harden scored 32 points, including a three-point play late where he took Chandler Parsons to the basket, and the Rockets closed the game on a 9-1 run to beat the Mavericks 95-92, improving to 10-3 on the year. Harden also made some key defensive plays late (see video) that helped put away the Mavs. Patrick Beverley hit a career-high six three-pointers, scoring 20 points, before leaving the game late after re-aggravating his hamstring. The Rockets amazingly hit 13 threes in the first half, but went ice cold in the second half before the furious 9-1 finish in the final 1:22.
