Dallas are currently 0-2. They haven’t been great at all. They lost games to the Kings and the Hawks. They have a solid rim protector in Nerlens Noel, and a veteran shooter in Dirk. However, they are going to need a bit more than this to win easily. They will be missing players such as Seth Curry, Devin Harris and Dennis Smith Jr. This means that quality scoring and defending will have to come from other source. The Mavs have the resources to do this, they just need to dig deep.
The Rockets are in a bit of a situation themselves. Chris Paul could be out for a month, and the Stadium is likely to be fairly empty. Most Houston fans will be attending the Houston Astros game. So unless you are a die hard Rockets fan, you may miss this game. Chris Paul is suffering a knee injury, which kept him out of Wednesday’s game. It’s arguable how serious this injury is, however, most would agree that it is a 2-4 week timeline. The Rockets will certainly miss his vision and attacking style, but they cannot rely upon this. They have many other weapons who are more than capable of scoring, such has Harden. The Rockets have quite a bit of depth in their roster, so they should be safe for the next few weeks or so.
