The Houston Rockets head to Dallas for their first away game of the preseason. Jeremy Lin will take the night off and Royce White will see his first time on the floor in Rockets red.

Game time, folks.

Houston starters: Toney Douglas, Kevin Martin, Chandler Parsons, Patrick Patterson, Omer Asik

Dallas starters: Daren Collison, O.J. Mayo, Shawn Marion, Elton Brand, Chris Kaman.

Jeremy Lin will sit out tonight along with Terrance Jones and possibly Marcus Morris. Dirk Nowitzki will not play due to some issues with his knee.

Both teams have got a new, younger look. Houston will look to inject some life into the bench by unleashing Royce White.

With Dirk out, the Mavs will pair Elton Brand and Chris Kaman for the first time since they played together on the Clippers in 2008.

Let's hear what you've got to say.
