Mavericks finally overcome Rockets for 90-81 win -- The AP reports: Jason Terry scored seven consecutive points in a minute, starting a game-turning run for the Dallas Mavericks. And he wasn’t alone contributing off the bench. Like Terry, Rodrigue Beaubois and Brandan Wright scored in double figures in a 90-81 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. Even Lamar Odom resembled the player the defending NBA champions always thought they were getting... The Mavericks fell behind by as many as 16 in the first quarter, and didn’t overtake a short-handed and worn-out Rockets team until Terry’s seven straight points started a 21-6 run in the third quarter... Dirk Nowitzki had 21 points despite a bad shooting night (5 of 17), and was the only Dallas starter who scored in double figures. He made 11 of 12 free throws, 10 of the attempts coming before halftime. Luis Scola had 22 points and eight rebounds for the Rockets, while Goran Dragic scored 17 points. Chandler Parsons had 15 points and nine rebounds.
