The Houston Rockets will try to avoid back-to-back losses on Monday when they host the visiting Dallas Mavericks. A three-game win streak for the Rockets was snapped in Saturday night’s disappointing home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Meanwhile, the Mavericks are coming off a huge home win over the Portland Trail Blazers

Harden outshined by George

The typical James Harden show for the Rockets took a backseat to Thunder forward Paul George’s monstrous 45-point performance in Saturday night’s clash between two of the best teams in the Western Conference. Even Russell Westbrook’s triple-double against the Rockets faded into the background of Harden and George’s four-quarter shootout.
Scoring 35-plus points has become a common theme for Harden on a Rockets team that lacks the same firepower it had a year ago, when they took the Golden State Warriors to a seven-game playoff series. Chris Paul is steadily playing better as he’s working his way back into the lineup after missing a significant chunk of the season with a hamstring injury.
Yet, the combination of Paul and Harden pales in comparison to George and Westbrook at this point. The Rockets shot 43.0 percent from the floor and 35.6 percent from 3-pointer, while also getting out-rebounded 63-49. Harden dropped 42 points and two rebounds, and Paul nearly had a triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in the 117-112 loss.

Doncic magic on full display

The Trail Blazers were no match for Luka Doncic on Sunday night.
After falling behind late in the game, the Mavericks star forward helped engineer a 15-point comeback in the fourth quarter to knock off the fourth-ranked team in the Western Conference. It was another step in the right direction for a Mavericks team that is now 6-3 in their last nine games. Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard did everything possible to put his team in position to win, but Doncic seemingly always had an answer on the other end of the floor.
He scored 13 points in the fourth quarter alone to help drag his team back in the contest. That persistence and toughness in the face of adversity is further proof Doncic isn’t merely a flash in the pan kind of player this season. He’s a legitimate superstar in the making.
By the end of the game, Doncic had 28 points, nine rebounds and six assists, while Tim Hardaway Jr. posted 24 points, four rebounds and three assists. Forward Dwight Powell also had a solid night off the bench with 13 points, eight rebounds and two assists in the 102-101 win
