WHAT: Rivalries and stuff
WHERE: Toyota Center, Houston, TX
WHEN: 2:30 p.m. CT
THE STORY: I'll be watching this afternoon's game with a Houston fan friend of mine visiting from Texas, so the game should be fun for one of us. Oh, you wanted the GAME story? Well then. Chandler Parsons will finally be at full strength in a matchup against his former team, and I assume the boos will still rain freely. Houston has recovered a tad from their early season malaise, but they are still very beatable. All of that may depend on Dirk's presence, who
is questionable has been upgraded to probable for this game, but is still dealing with a right knee effusion. Oh, and Zaza Pachulia will be out today, dealing with lower leg soreness. Salah Mejri, anyone?
Note the afternoon start time, and let's go Mavs!
