Houston, TX (Sports Network) - O.J. Mayo netted 16 of his game-high 40 points in the fourth quarter as the Dallas Mavericks rallied for a 116-109 win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday at Toyota Center.

Mayo buried six 3-pointers and pulled down eight rebounds, while Chris Kaman added 20 points and seven boards for the Mavericks, who have won eight straight against their intrastate rivals.

Darren Collison and Vince Carter donated 12 points apiece in the victory.

Rockets head coach Kevin McHale returned to the sideline for the first time since taking a leave of absence on Nov. 10. It was later revealed that his 23- year-old daughter Alexandra, who had battled Lupus, unexpectedly passed away on Nov. 24.

The home side played inspired basketball for McHale as James Harden netted a team-high 39 points and Chandler Parsons added 18 points and 10 rebounds, but it all unraveled in the final quarter for Houston, which has lost three of its last five.
