WHO: The Dallas Mavericks return home to face the Sacramento Kings

WHAT: The Mavericks look to keep streaking, after winning back-to-back for the first time since the beginning of November.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30pm CT


THE STORY: The Mavericks have finally got on a little roll, but have to face Sacramento, just 7-12 but winners of three straight. In those three games, they've held teams to just 87 points. In their last game, a 99-80 win over the Trail Blazers, the Kings had six players score double digits, including their entire starting lineup. Meanwhile, the Mavericks only had two starters score double digits in their victory over Houston, but O.J. Mayo's double digits happened to be 40 points. It'll be interesting to see if he can continue his hot streak with all the attention focused on him while Dirk is still out.

Let's go Mavs!
