Rookie Jae Crowder added 20 points and Vince Carter chipped in with 15 points off the bench for the Mavericks, who were swept by the Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the playoffs last season.

Kevin Martin scored a game-high 23 points and Patrick Patterson donated 13 points and seven rebounds for the Rockets, who missed the playoffs for the third straight season in 2011-12.
