Rockets-Mavericks: Game Thread

The Dallas Mavericks take on the Houston Rockets for the first road game of the season.

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

In their first matchup of the season, the Dallas Mavericks and Dirk Nowitzki take on Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets at Houston's Toyota Center at 7:30 CT. The game is bound to be high scoring, fun, and, hopefully, close.

Can Dalembert and DeJuan Blair keep Dwight and Omer Asik off the boards? Will Dirk go nuts with the lumbering Asik or Dwight defending him in minutes where they play together? Can Monta and Jose Calderon defend Lin-Harden? Will Monta put up great numbers again?

Mavericks NBA is back, people, and we've already got a good one in store.
