Roundtable: Who Will Me the Most Important Opponent for the Mavs?
“If I have to pick one team in particular that I really think the Mavericks need to establish themselves against, it is the Houston Rockets. Houston had a disaster of a season last year and still made the playoffs somehow. That shows that they are a talented and capable team with a proven All-Star that can score the ball.
The reason the Mavs need to beat James Harden and the Houston Rockets is because it not only shows that we can hang with teams that are in that 2nd tier of talent, but that we can battle against the stars of the league. If Dallas is capable of shutting down James Harden, it opens up doors and a mindset that we are a better team than people want us to believe. That is why my pick is Houston.”
