Mavs at Rockets GAME ONE
Dwight Howard stayed in foul trouble much of the night. In 136 games (reg & playoff), Terrence Jones had just one 6 assist game. Mr. Jones had 6 assist in Game One tonight. Mr. Jones NEVER had a 15 point - 5 rebound - 5 assist game. Tonight's performance was: 19 points - 9 rebounds - 6 assists = played big!
The Mavericks shot 10-31 FG, 32% & had two offensive rebounds when Howard was in the game (17:22). Dallas shot 34-68, 50%, 12 offensive rebounds when Howard was out (30:38).
This season as a starter (18 games), Jason Terry shot 43.3% on 3's......made 4-7 tonight. No doubt Jason had a little pep in his step facing his old team.
Last but not least, Rockets committed 11 first half turnovers and ONLY two in the second half!
