The Dallas Mavericks travel to face the Houston Rockets on Nov. 28 in a battle between star rookie Luka Doncic and perennial MVP candidate James Harden.

The Dallas Mavericks are looking to continue their hot form tonight in Houston. They have been on a tear since Nov. 6. In the nine games since that date, Dallas has won seven and outscored their opponents by 82 points. Improved defense is leading the way for the Mavericks during their winning streak.

The Mavs have struggled all season away from home, though. They have just one road win all season. It will be interesting to see how the Mavericks look tonight after three days off too.

The Rockets have lost three straight games coming in, and All-Star point guard Chris Paul is questionable to play versus Dallas. Paul sat out in their loss to the Wizards on Monday evening. Houston is struggling out of the gate but still figures to be near the top of the West by season’s end.

Here is how fans can enjoy the Nov. 28 contest between the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets.

Storyline to follow- Doncic vs. Harden

James Harden is leading the NBA in scoring this season with 31.5 points per game. The top rookie on that list is Mavericks leading scorer Luka Doncic at 19.1. The first meeting between the two should have fans intrigued.

Many compare the offensive game of Doncic to Harden. The Beard is not the fastest player on the floor but uses his dribble and IQ to create havoc for the opposition. In many ways, Luka does the same thing. He is not as skilled at drawing fouls as Harden, but that may come as he continues his development.

Mavs fans can dream of Doncic blossoming into a Harden-level superstar in the coming season during tonight’s game. In reality, Luka is having a historic rookie season and may not be that far away from reaching Harden’s level.

Final thoughts

Fans should tune in on Wednesday as the Dallas Mavericks look to make it a three-game winning streak with their second road victory of the year. The Rockets are scuffling, and the Mavs need to take advantage.

The battle inside between DeAndre Jordan and Clint Capela should be a key factor. There are ten players averaging over 12 rebounds per game so far. Two of them are Jordan and Capela. Every rebound should be highly contested this evening and winning that battle could go a long way in securing the victory.
