The Houston Rockets outlasted the Dallas Mavericks 123-107 Tuesday night, in a game marred by plenty of trash talking and technical fouls. There were eight technical fouls and two flagrant fouls called in the Rockets' victory, and the war of words did not end when the buzzer sounded. Harden said. "That other team was tripping tonight. They were disrespectful, were unprofessional players and coaches. I don't know what was their problem, but I think that got us going. They wanted to throw a little cheap shot and just woke us up a little bit, and it was over from there."
