James Harden was able to save the Dwight-less Rockets from a 4th quarter collapse with some clutch plays and free throws against the Mavs. The Rockets blew a 18 point lead and found themselves down by 4 with a minute left but Harden scored 5 of his game-high 32 down the stretch to help the Rockets get the W.
For the Mavs, Dirk and Monta struggled most of the night and combined for just 28 points on 11 of 39 shooting.
