Dallas Mavericks vs. Houston Rockets: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Houston
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets beat the Dallas Mavericks for the first time in their last nine tries, riding a red-hot third quarter to a 136-103 win on Sunday night.

Chandler Parsons was almost perfect, Jeremy Lin played one of his better games as a Rocket and Omer Asik did the dirty work as Houston outran the much slower Mavs.

On the night, the Rockets shot 58 percent as a team, won the rebound battle and enjoyed a turnover differential of plus five. Houston dominated from the middle part of the second period onward, but the game really swung in the third quarter, when Houston posted a season-high 44 points.

As a result, the Rockets took a comically large 108-78 advantage into the fourth quarter.

These two teams will meet again on March 6, so you can bet there'll be some hard feelings after a blowout like this. For now, the Rockets can enjoy one of their most dominant wins of the season.
