Dallas vs. Denver
When the Dallas Mavericks take on the Denver Nuggets tonight I assume they will be playing on tired legs. The Mavs gave the defending Western conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder all they could handle last night in an overtime loss, but with a back to back game against a young Denver Nugget team it will be a difficult task to come out with a victory. If they can keep it close they have a chance, but it could get out of hand early.
>Houston vs. San Antonio
The Houston Rockets are on a 5 game winning streak as they head to San Antonio to take on the Spurs. So far this season James Harden has embraced his role as the go to guy averaging 25 points a game. The same can't be said for Jeremy Lin however who has struggled running the point on a full time basis. 11 points and 6 assist per game is not what the Rockets expected when they signed him in free agency. He will need to have a good game for the Rockets to have a shot tonight.
