Tonight there will be a battle in Texas as the Dallas Mavericks travel to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas to take on the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are currently sitting at 2-2 and second in the Southwest division, while the Mavericks are in third place with a 2-4 record.

Houston Rockets superstar and former league MVP James Harden is listed as questionable for tonight’s game. The team is currently ranked 6th in the Western Conference and will hope to have their best player against the Mavericks.

The Mavericks have underperformed so far this season. Former Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic will be looking to get out of the slump he’s having this season with a road victory against Houston. The Mavericks are currently 13th in a tough Western Conference and they will be looking to get back into playoff contention as the season progresses.
