01/16: Dallas vs Houston Open Thread

"Payback - this time it's for real."
- That one geico commercial

Last time Dallas played Houston it wasn't pretty.  It was the second game of the season and Dallas lost game two of what ended up being that ugly four game losing streak.  No player had a good game and the offense was horrible as the Mavs scored just 76 points in a 31 point loss.

Dallas hasn't scored fewer points than that all season and they've gone 31-6 since that game.  It's easy to assume that this game will go a little differently.  

Yao Ming scored 36 in the first match but he's out tonight.  Still, Houston is 9-2 without Yao and have won four straight.  Should be a good game.
