Game Thread: Rockets (5-11) at Mavericks (12-4)

Who: The Dallas Mavericks host the Houston Rockets

What: A chance to extend the win streak to six games!

Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

When: 7:30 CT


The Story: It's been almost a year since these two teams last met. Previously, the Rockets took the game in overtime. This season, however, the odds are in the Mavericks' favor. Riding a five-game win streak, Dallas will host a Houston team that has lost its last three road games. The Rockets, averaging 104.4 PPG, may see those numbers fall when they face the third best defense in points allowed.
