Rockets routed by depleted Mavericks for sixth consecutive home loss

HOUSTON — For someone to gain an accurate description of the Houston Rockets’ struggles against the Dallas Mavericks, one must rewind to the 5:38 mark of the first quarter.

K.J. Martin, arguably the most athletic player on the roster, missed a near uncontested dunk attempt. Martin failed dunk was the ninth missed field goal out of their first 12 shots, as the Rockets trailed the Mavericks 21-10 at the start of the game. Unfortunately, Martin’s missed dunk was just one of numerous blunders amidst a 130-106 loss to the Mavericks on Friday.

With the loss, the Rockets fell to 11-28 on the season while dropping their sixth consecutive game inside the Toyota Center.
