JJ Barea is ballin'! The lil' fella has 6 points, 8 assists, showing Rajon Rondo how the Mavs offense is supposed to be run.

Rockets' offense a work of art

Houston is making a home for itself in the paint. 16 of the Rockets' first 17 buckets have come in the lane, but the Mavs have stormed back to take a 5-point lead late in the second. Follow live

Lou Williams @TeamLou23

Not a great way to go out, but all in all a good season. Thanx to the fans for the support. We have a lot to look forward to. Together. thx

Harris unsure what sport he plays

With Dwight Howard lined up for yet another bucket at the rim, Devin Harris tackled Howard to prevent the basket. Howard seemed to take the hard foul in stride, as Harris was called for a flagrant 1 foul. Follow live

Dallas native Jordan Spieth, wearing his green jacket, gets presented a personalized Mavs jersey. Does his part to keep crowd fired up.

Rick Carlisle T'd up for arguing about basically the same Dwight Howard arm motion that he complained about after Game 3. $25K not worth it

Howard is a handful for Mavericks
NBA 

Dallas is 36 minutes away from its season ending, and Dwight Howard is doing his best to finish things. He has two alley-oops already and 10 points total, and a buzzer-beating one-footed jumper from James Harden has the Rockets up 34-25. Follow live
