THE STORY: After their shellacking of the Memphis Grizzlies last night, the Dallas Mavericks will host the Houston Rockets. My prediction? The opposing team scores more than 30 points in the first half.
This is the second game of a back to back for Dallas and the first of one for the Rockets, who face San Antonio tomorrow. Neither of their fellow Texas teams pose much of a threat, but scoring machine James Harden will likely sit tonight against to rest his knee ahead of the match against the Spurs.
The Mavericks will be missing Salah Mejri, but will have Dennis Smith Jr., who sat the first game of the back to back against Memphis, at their disposal.
