Game #2: Dallas Mavericks at Houston Rockets

New, comments

The Dallas Mavericks, who recently hired and subsequently fired former Houston front office executive Gersson Rosas, refuse to retool in a responsible manor. The Mavs will look once again to vault their way into the lower half of the Western Conference playoff seedings by surrounding Dirk Nowitzki with veterans on bloated contracts.
