THE STORY: With only one game after this left -- against the Spurs on Wednesday -- the Mavs still need a win or a Houston loss to get into the big show. Sounds like both Deron Williams and J.J. Barea will give it a go tonight, so the Mavs will be as close to full strength as they can be. We'll also be keeping an eye on Rockets-Timberwolves, which tips off about an hour before the Mavs. So they will know what they need to do going into the fourth quarter, which is in theory good?
