Mavericks-Rockets Preview

(AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks proved too proud to suffer a four-game sweep against one of their in-state rivals, though a cold shooting night from the Houston Rockets certainly helped.

Whether that desperation can carry the Mavericks through another elimination game may again depend on how much they can slow the Rockets' prolific outside attack Tuesday night.

Houston went just 2 for 21 from 3-point range through the first three quarters in Game 4 on Sunday and finished 7 for 31. Josh Smith knocked down four 3s in the final 12 minutes to slightly pad the Rockets' poor performance (22.6 percent), which ranked as their eighth-worst this season.
