STARS
Monday
-Jason Terry, Mavericks, scored 31 points in a 107-98 victory over Houston.

GOOD START
Dallas defeated Houston 107-98 on Monday to improve to 3-1, which is notable only because they were 0-4 at this point last season, with a 41-point loss to Houston mixed in. Dallas went on to win 67 games, matching the fifth-most in league history, before getting bounced in the first round of the playoffs.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Tracy McGrady had 35 points and eight assists, and Yao Ming had 21 points and 11 rebounds, but Dallas handed Houston its first loss of the season, 107-98 on Monday night. McGrady, who came in as the league's leading scorer and received the Western Conference's first player of the week award this season, was 12-of-31 from the field.

SIDELINED
Swelling in Amare Stoudemire's right knee could sideline him for the second game in a row when Phoenix begins a four-game road trip Tuesday night at Charlotte. The All-Star forward had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Oct. 2. He missed virtually all the 2005-06 season after microfracture surgery on his left knee.

SPEAKING
``He just had that look in his eye and his shot really looked good. We are very surprised when he misses; we're kind of spoiled these days.'' - Dallas coach Avery Johnson, on Jason Terry's 31 points in the Mavericks' 107-98 win over Houston on Monday.
