Rockets seeking 3-game series lead against Mavericks

The Mavericks have been better without Rajon Rondo this season. Now they'll have to be a lot better without him or their season will be over soon.

The Rockets rolled through the first two games in Houston, winning 118-108 and 111-99. The series shifts to Dallas for Game 3, and Rondo will no longer be around.

The Mavericks said Rondo injured his back before getting benched again by coach Rick Carlisle, who doesn't think the pending free agent will ever wear a Dallas uniform again.

"I like our team," Carlisle said. "The guys that we have available are going to fight their butts off and our crowd's going to be into it and we're going to have to make it happen."

The good news for the Mavs is they've won 66.7 percent of their games without Rondo and 54.2 percent with the point guard since he was acquired in a December trade with Boston. Devin Harris also is probable to return from a left big toe injury.

The bad news is Chandler Parsons is out for the rest of the playoffs with a right knee injury. And of course the Mavericks still have to contend with James Harden, Dwight Howard, Josh Smith and the rejuvenated Rockets, who have thoroughly outplayed them.

"Stay in attack mode," Harden said of Houston's mindset. "Don't get relaxed. Don't get comfortable."
