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
