Rockets vs Mavericks score: live updates as Houston, Dallas debut in NBA bubble


It’s half-time between the Mavericks and the Rockets, but you wouldn’t know from looking at the score. in two quarters, the two teams combined for an incredible 160 points. Dallas leads Houston 85-75. Three separate Mavericks have 19 or more points… and neither of them is MVP candidate Luka Doncic. James Harden dropped 23 points on a perfect shot in the first quarter, but only scored three points in the second once the Mavericks started to trap him. It was a wild game that lived up to its huge stakes.The Rockets, with their innovative small-ball lineups, and the Mavericks, with their historically dominant offense, pose major threats to the top teams in the Western Conference. However, there is no more precarious place to start on the bracket than No.7, setting up a probable first-round streak against the Clippers and their endless supply of wing defenders. A victory in Houston almost ensures that they will avoid this fate. A victory in Dallas ruins the entire middle of the Western Conference.
