WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Houston Rockets

WHAT: Getting a win to avoid dropping two straight and falling to a disappointing 2-5 — also picking up a key division win.

WHERE: Toyota Center, Houston, TX

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: Dallas’ roller coaster season continued Sunday night against the Bulls — the Mavericks lost without Luka Doncic to drop them to an underwhelming 2-4.

Doncic will be back against a key division rival and the Mavericks desperately need to hop back on the winning path, with a difficult schedule looming over the next two weeks. There isn’t much to say on how the Mavericks need to get back to their winning ways: they need to make shots, full stop. The Mavericks offense has generated plenty of open looks, the team just has been anemic from deep so far this season. Let’s see if that changes tonight.
