Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks (40-26) will take on Jalen Green and the Houston Rockets (17-49) in part of the NBA Friday slate.

Both teams are facing opposite types of seasons but are also coming off very different previous outings.

The Mavericks were defeated in a blowout by the New York Knicks on their home floor. Despite that, Dallas has played quality basketball for quite some time and is fifth in the Western Conference standings.

As they continue to rebuild, the Rockets may have the worst record in the Western Conference, but they took down the Los Angeles Lakers in a thrilling overtime victory.
