Game Thread: Houston Rockets at Dallas Mavericks

The preseason has made its way back to the continental United States!

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

WHO: The Dallas Mavericks host the Houston Rockets

WHAT: The first time our new-look Mavs get to face another NBA team

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30pm CT


THE STORY: Yes, now the Rockets have Jeremy Lin. But we're NOT going to call it Linsanity because that was a short-lived phenomenon that existed in New York. So for now, we're just hanging out with a division rival and seeing how our dudes look after some more time working together. O.J. Mayo is expected to play, despite losing a chunk of his hand falling down some stairs in Spain. Neither Dirk Nowitzki nor Rodrigue Beaubois will be playing tonight. Don't forget to visit The Dream Shake to find out more about how Houston's preseason is going. Hint: they lost to the Spurs.

OK guys... lot's of stuff going on.

Dirk isn't playing- we don't know why yet but we're assuming it's because he's probably going to have surgery. Also just read on Twitter that Jeremy Lin isn't playing either. Basketball!
