Game Thread: Dallas (15-4) @ Sacramento (4-13)

The Dallas Mavericks hope to extend their winning streak to 9 games with a victory against the Sacramento Kings in Arco Arena.  The Mavericks hope to continue on their road warrior ways as they have the league's second best road record at 7-1.  Late-night basketball on the West Coast, you've got to love it.

Series Recap: Dallas swept the season series with the Kings in 2009-10 and has won six straight games against Sacramento.  The Mavericks have won 14 of the last 16 meetings with the Kings (including 20 of the last 25 match-ups).  The Mavs have won five of the last seven games in Sacramento.
