Dallas Mavericks game at Houston Rockets postponed due to power outage
By Tyler Watts
The Dallas Mavericks had another strange week. They were just starting to rebound from a slow start plagued by injuries and COVID issues before severe weather wreaked havoc in Texas. There have been power outages across the state this week, and the crisis has no end in sight.
Dallas had their home game on Wednesday postponed. The Detroit Pistons instead traveled to Chicago to face the Bulls. The Mavs were supposed to face the Rockets in Houston on Feb. 19, but that game was also postponed. The Toyota Center in Houston is on government shutdown forcing the cancellation.
Let us take a closer look at what that means for Luka Doncic and the Mavericks, plus when we could see them return to action.
Dallas Mavericks at Houston Rockets postponed due to power outage
The Mavs only had two games on the schedule for this week and both have been removed. Their next scheduled game is on Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies at the American Airlines Center. Hopefully, the situation in Texas improves enough that the Mavericks can play that contest. Dallas has had three games postponed so far this season. All of them are expected to be made up in the second half.
Coach Rick Carlisle did not rule out the Mavs playing before Monday. See his quote below courtesy of Callie Caplan.
The Dallas Mavericks have practiced this week. The extended break could be a positive as the team is still jelling after the wild start. The Mavs have six more games left on the schedule before the end of the first half, and five of the opponents are expecting to make the playoffs. Fans might get to see what the Mavericks are made of over the next two weeks.
