Harden, Howard set playoff highs in Rockets' win over Mavericks
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rockets guard James Harden and center Dwight Howard both set career playoff highs to lead Houston to a 130-128 victory over Dallas and a 3-0 series lead in the opening round of the playoffs.

"James was great tonight," coach Kevin McHale said, per the Houston Chronicle. "What can you say? I've seen it a lot this year. The guy has played fantastic. A big game when we needed him to play well. He did. He stepped up."

Harden led the charge offensively, scoring a career playoff high 42 points and dishing our a team-high nine assists, while Howard dominated the boards, grabbing a postseason best and a franchise record 26 rebounds. He outrebounded the rest of his teammates 26-20. Harden's previous career playoff high was 37 against the Trail Blazers last year. Howard's previous best in rebounds was 24 in 2009, when he led the Magic to the NBA Finals.

"Dwight was unreal. He got every rebound and was just a beast down there," McHale told reporters after the game, per the Chronicle.

Rockets' Dwight Howard plays 33 minutes, feels no extra soreness
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockets center Dwight Howard played 33 minutes in his team's Game 2 win Tuesday, his highest usage since Jan. 19, and said the next day he felt no extra soreness after the increased workload, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"I feel pretty good," Howard said. "However long I am on the floor, I’m going to play as hard as I can. When I need a break, I have to trust my teammates. (Backup center) Clint (Capela) has been playing some great basketball. I thought he has done an excellent job for never being in this situation, coming out there, getting some blocks, rebounding the ball, finishing, making plays around the basket. He’s been great. We have to be able to trust each other. While I’m on the floor I’m going to give whatever I’ve got."

The Rockets didn't practice Wednesday but are scheduled to do so Thursday. Coach Kevin McHale said that the test will be how Howard feels in the coming days, but his 33 minutes were "a nice baseline" and that the center could "maybe play a little more" moving forward.

The Rockets are a pick 'em for Game 3 in Dallas Friday.
