The Rockets look to make it three wins in a row tonight, as they take on their cross-state rival Dallas Mavericks at the Toyota Center.

James Harden, who was listed as questionable coming into tonight, will be active for Houston. Luka Doncic, who was also questionable, will play as well. However, the Rockets will be without Danuel House, who is sitting tonight with a back issue, according to Jonathan Feigen.

No word yet at the time of this writing who will be starting in place of House, but the most likely options include either Eric Gordon or David Nwaba. I’d like to see it be Nwaba. I like Gordon off the bench, and Nwaba’s athleticism and defense would fit right in alongside Harden, John Wall, and Christian Wood, who will be carrying the offensive load.

See you guys on Twitter and in the thread! Go Rockets!
