The Dallas Mavericks have had the number of the Houston Rockets since November 2010 winning the last nine in a row against their in-state rivals. All streaks are meant to come to an end, and the Rockets put this one to bed with a dominant 136-103 victory in front of the hometown fans. Chandler Parsons led the way with a career night; the kind that most guys would dream of. Whenever he shot the ball he could do no wrong hitting 12 of 13 shots including his first 11 for a career-high 32 points. The win moved the Rockets record to 33-28, six games in front of Dallas in the playoff chase; three in front of the Los Angeles Lakers for the No. 8 spot. Dallas will get a chance for redemption when the Rockets travel up to Dallas.
