PRESEASON GAME THREAD: Mavericks at Rockets

Tonight the Mavericks take on the team who stole their lunch money. Or at least, the team that landed the free agent the Mavs coveted. So yeah, lunch money.

This? This is who we're worried about?

WHO: The Houston Rockets host the Dallas Mavericks

WHAT: A legit preseason match-up between division rivals. Also Dwight.

WHERE: Toyota Center, Houston, TX

WHEN: 7:00pm CT


THE STORY: Who wants to hear about Dwight Howard? Shall we discuss Dwight Howard? Did you hear he said something annoying to the media about annoying things?

The 3-2 Mavericks are still figuring things out in the preseason. Jose Calderon finally made his debut, but Dirk Nowitzki was taking the night off. Tonight, the Rockets have announced that they'll be starting Howard and Omer Asik together (the Twin Towers or some such nonsense) so new center Samuel Dalembert is going to have to put on a show to stay in the game. Regardless of the lineups, tonight's game promises to be entertaining at the very least.
