WAT I DON'T EVEN - Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Mavericks need to come into tonight's game with a little more 'oomph' if they hope to shave anytime soon.

WHO: The Dallas Mavericks host the Sacramento Kings

WHAT: Last chance before the All Star Break to close the gap

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30pm CT

HOW: FSSW | NBALP

THE STORY: There is no question that the Mavericks came out lacking energy in their game versus Atlanta. Had they not fallen into a 10-0 hole, then the game might have been winnable. Against a team like Sacramento, there's NO reason to be lackadaisical. The Kings have a LOT on their minds these days, and have been playing hard for their fans. Dallas absolutely needs to take this game seriously. Still no Chris Kaman, but everyone else is good to go. We highly recommend visiting Sactown Royalty these days.

MAVS!
