Losers of two straight, the Dallas Mavericks are currently on their heels. The defending champions head to Houston on Saturday night to take on the Rockets, as they look to stop the bleeding.
After winning four in a row, the Mavericks have dropped their last two games, and suddenly find themselves on the playoff bubble in the Western Conference. Dallas only leads Houston by half a game -- and a loss, coupled with a Nuggets win on Sunday, could drop the Mavericks out of the top eight seeds in the Western Conference.
Dallas will have every opportunity to turn things around starting on Saturday night, as Mavericks will play the first of two consecutive games against the Rockets.
Tip off between the Mavericks and Rockets is set for 7:00 p.m. CT from the Toyota Center in Houston. Televised coverage can be found on NBA TV.
