Beverley improves Rockets' chances against Mavs

HOUSTON -- Patrick Beverley was front and center in the waning moments of Houston's 102-99 victory over Oklahoma City on Friday night, defending Thunder guard Russell Westbrook with vigor as the Rockets clutched a one-possession lead.

For those aware of the value that Beverley brings to the Rockets (16-7) as a tenacious defender and reliable 3-point shooter, his impact on their turnaround isn't a surprise. However, how well Houston has performed since Beverley returned from preseason knee surgery is noteworthy after the Rockets improved to 10-2 with him.

"Pat has contributed in so many ways," said coach Mike D'Antoni, whose will lead the Rockets against the visiting Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night at Toyota Center.
