    If Dallas was healthy I would take the points, but I think they are really missing Dennis Smith at point guard and his offensive production of 10-12 points per game. And if skyscraper Kleber doesn't go tonight, (questionable with foot injury), then that will really hurt Dallas on the boards. Houston is healthier and I don't see them losing 3 in a row, but Klever is the x factor for me so I'll wait until game time.

    Won 50% of the Last 10 Picks.

    Dallas is starting to get it done with Doncic and Jordan. Houston travels to Dallas on a 2 game losing streak and they lost several by double digits. Rockets are having a tough start out of the gate and can't find a way to put points on the board. Better bets out there today but if pushed to make a call I'm going with Dallas and the points.

    Dallas has been better than expected as the production from Doncic and the addition of Jordan has really helped them offensively. Looking at this spread, I don't understand why Vegas is still favoring the Rockets in these lines. Houston comes in with two straight losses and six of their last eight with the last three defeats coming by double digits. The Rockets are struggling to make things happen, especially with their perimeter shooting. Houston doesnt have the depth that they need in order to hang with good teams. This one is a gift from Vegas, take the points with the hotter team with the extra day of rest.

    My Pick: Dallas +3

    Houston Chronicle: Rookie sensation Luka Doncic takes control of Rockets-Mavericks game

    NBA

    DALLAS - The Mavericks already had a good idea of what they had in rookie Luka Doncic before he took apart the Rockets in the final minutes. On Saturday, he made that clear.

    After a 1 of 9 start, he made 6 of 8 shots the rest of the way, including a burst in which he outscored the Rockets, 11-0, in less than two minutes to take over and win the game.

    "It was something special," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "It is pretty clear that he has a special flare for the moment and he is not afraid.

    The Dream Shake: Rockets at Mavericks Gamethread

    NBA

    So the Rockets head into Dallas, home of universally acclaimed MVP-In-Waiting, American Idol winner, and solution to everything. Luca Doncic. Honestly, he's a fun player, and his addition, along with DAndre Jorden has turned the Mavericks into a winner. Of course this season has turned most of the Western Conference into a winner, so maybe something different is going on.

    There are only four teams with losing records in the Western Conference and the Rockets are one of them. They're also five games in the loss column behind the West leading Denver Nuggets, and four behind Golden State.

    WHAT: Ugh Dirk's not back yet? LAME.

    WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

    WHEN: 5:00 p.m. CT

    HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

    THE STORY: Y'all, my household has been sick for a whole week now, so uh, I don't know much about what to expect from this game. I suggest you check out our preview, which was written by someone not vaguely drunk on cold medicine. I do know that the Mavs beat the you-know-what out of the Rockets the last time the two teams met, but that CP3 is back this time, so I'm not sure what that really means.

    House of Houston: Houston Rockets: Eric Gordon's sharp comments are right on target

    NBA

    The Houston Rockets free fall into the oblivion of mediocrity has been a tough pill to swallow in this season thus far. When we think the team has turned a corner, another setback occurs to where they're held back. It's actually quite a surprising notion because the majority of the team that was present last season is still on the roster.

    Could Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute have made that much of a difference in the team's performance? I seriously doubt it but I think the windfall of cash that some of these players received allowed them to be a bit more comfortable but losing the sight what ultimately matters -- winning basketball games.

    Consensus betting prediction from the Covers.com community:
    Houston Rockets
    (52% consensus). The Houston Rockets are still trying to find some consistency more than one quarter of the way through the season and are not finding much success on the current road trip. The Rockets will try to turn their offense around and avoid a three-game slide when they visit the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday... http://bit.ly/2iH70lk

    And it's back to the drawing board. After winning two to move back to .500, the Rockets promptly dropped two in a row to move back to 11-13. Tonight, the Rockets will travel to Dallas to play against a surging Mavericks squad.

    It's getting old to write about, but the Rockets have to find a way to adjust to the way teams are attacking them. Last season, teams tried to use ball movement or even drives to the basket, but it wasn't enough. This season, players like Devin Harris and J.

    Mavs Moneyball: 3 things to watch for when the Mavericks battle the Rockets

    NBA

    Saturday evening the Dallas Mavericks (12-11) will take on the Houston Rockets (11-13) at the American Airlines Center, the second time they've met in ten days. Both teams are coming off tough road losses. The Mavericks, winners of nine of their last twelve games, got hammered in New Orleans on the second night of a back-to-back. The Rockets, who have yet to find their footing all season and have lost six of their last eight, were beat badly in Salt Lake City on Thursday night.

    The last time these teams met the Rockets were without starting point guard Chris Paul.
