Houston-Rockets
VS
Dallas-Mavericks
Shortened regular season is near to end so every next game can be crucial for final positions before play-off. This is particularly the case with these two teams who are in group of six teams in West Conference who are placed from 4th to 9th while there is no difference between them biger than 1 or 1 and half win. Memphis on 4th has 55.6 % success ratio while Houston and Denver on 8th and 9th 54.2 %. Even defending champions Dallas Mavericks are not safe with 55.1 %. So, it is clear how important is this game for both, Mavericks and Rockets.

 

Still, I feel champions should be closer to take win in this match and considering on couple points of handicap on them, I have great confidence in this pick.

 

This is first head to head of the season, but Mavericks were more successful in the past even on the court in Houston. 8-2 in favor of Dallas is the score in last ten games played in Houston.

 

Current form is on the same level, 4-2 was the score in last six games for both teams. But it is clear that Mavericks had a much harder schedule. They met in last four games, two times with San Antonio Spurs, with Lakers, with Denver, while Rockets the only tough oponent in last five had in game against LA Lakers which they won but with plenty of luck on their side.

 

Injury reports:

 

Brendan Haywood has missed 4 straight games for Mavericks (sprained right knee) while Lamar Odom is expected to play tonight. Odom missed previous game with Spurs but he was not injured, it was a coach's decision.

 

On the other side hosts have more problems since both injured players, Kevin Martin (shoulder) as well Kyle Lowry (bacterial infection) are not expected to return on the court tonight.
