With his team flying high while riding a six-game winning streak, fourth-year pro Chandler Parsons found himself in a position he hadn’t experienced before in his young NBA career.
Spending his first three seasons with the Houston Rockets prior to signing with Dallas during free agency this summer, Parsons made his highly-anticipated return to the Toyota Center for the first time Saturday night to face his former team. Meanwhile, Parsons looked to lead his new squad to a seventh straight victory at his former teammates’ expense, hoping to take advantage of Rockets center Dwight Howard’s absence due to a knee injury.
But, despite a valiant comeback after falling down by as many as 18, the Mavericks (10-4) would run out of steam down the stretch while completing their back-to-back. And after falling to a 95-92 defeat, the Mavs would see their six-game win streak come to an abrupt end to ruin Parsons’ return to Houston.
