In many ways, the Rockets’ rematch with the Mavericks tonight might have the feel of a post-season schedule. One team wins big, the other adjusts, they meet again a few days later. The Mavericks, however, had trouble seeing it that way. They presumably will make corrections after several days of practices since Sunday’s blowout. And they have ample experience in every post-season situation. The Rockets have just three players – Carlos Delfino, Francisco Garcia and Aaron Brooks – that have ever been to the post-season with two playoff series wins between them.
