The Dallas Mavericks will be looking to fix their road woes against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.

The Dallas Mavericks are looking to rebound from a disappointing loss to the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night as the continue a three-game road trip.

Fortunately for the Mavs, history has been kind, at least when it comes to the Sacramento Kings. Dallas has won 10 games in a row against the Kings, and will be looking to right their road troubles with an 11th.

Complicating matters for the Mavericks is the absence of Brendan Heywood and Brandan Wright. Both are dealing with injuries, Haywood's left ankle and a concussion for Wright, that could give Dallas matchup problems against Kings' center DeMarcus Cousins.

Dallas has eight wins and 11 losses on the road this season. The Kings have a 9-6 home record.

Tip off is set for 9:00 p.m. Central, and the game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Southwest.
