WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Houston Rockets

WHAT: Round three against Dwight, et al.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CST

HOW: FSSW

THE STORY: The Mavs and Rox have played some fun, "defense optional" games so far this season, splitting their two prior meetings. Both were high scoring affairs. The Mavericks are coming off their first real (and much needed) rest since Christmas, and the Rockets are on the second night of a back-to-back, having beaten the Spurs last night. James Harden sat out against the Spurs with a bruised left thumb, so we'll see if he's available tonight. Should be another fun, high scoring affair. I wouldn't bet against a rested Dirk and a Devin Harris who may have his groove back playing at home.

You know the drill: here are some previews to chew on while you wait for the game to start. Comment away below. And LET'S GO MAVS.
