About the Rockets: The Rockets enter Wednesday’s game with rumors swirling that center Omer Asik wants to be traded. Asik believes he deserves to be starting at center ahead of Dwight Howard and is unhappy the Rockets don’t believe the same thing. ... Opponents are shooting 47.7 percent at the rim when defended by Howard. ... The Rockets will be playing the second game of a back-to-back set after defeating the Celtics 109-85 Tuesday behind Terrence Jones’ career-high 24 points. ... Houston was second in the league in scoring (108.8 points per game) entering Tuesday’s games. But the Rockets also have allowed the second-most points in the NBA (106.3 ppg). ... James Harden averages 25.2 points and 5.2 assists per game, Jeremy Lin averages 18.2 ppg and 5.0 apg, and Howard averages 17.8 ppg, leads the NBA in rebounds (14.2 per game) and is fourth in blocks (2.36 per game).

About the Mavericks: With a 5-0 record, the Mavericks are one of only five teams that are undefeated at home. ... On Nov. 1, the Mavericks lost the second game of their season in Houston, 113-105, despite 22 points from Dirk Nowitzki and 20 from Monta Ellis. The Mavericks shot 38 percent from the field and made 9 of 27 from 3-point range. ... Ellis has scored at least 18 points in all 11 games this season and averages 22.1. Ellis had a streak of 18-plus points in 13 consecutive games during the 2007-08 season for the Warriors. ... Rookie point guard Shane Larkin had an impressive debut during Monday’s 97-94 win over Philadelphia, finishing with three points, three assists and three steals in nine minutes.
