With the Western Conference playoff race extremely tight these next weeks games are huge for the Dallas Mavericks. They first get a rematch with the Houston Rockes who they struggled to beat on Saturday night even though the Rockets were without Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry.
This time the matchup is at home for the Mavericks and maybe this time they can get some production from Lamar Odom instead of the zero points he has scored over the past two games.
The second leg of the trip has the Mavericks going on the road to take on the Miami Heat who have the second best record in the Eastern Conference and have the best home record in the NBA at 20-2.
The final game of the week has the Mavericks go up against the Magic are 31-18 and third in the Eastern Conference. So this week will be big to in determining the Mavericks Western Conference status since the conference records are so tight.
