The fans at Toyota Center will be treated to a game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Houston Rockets when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS (0-2): Dallas was outrebounded 57-36 against Sacramento after gathering nine fewer boards in Wednesday’s season-opening loss to Atlanta. Dirk Nowitzki (nine rebounds) and Nerlens Noel (six) were the only two players to grab more than four. Noel, who stepped into the starting lineup for Friday’s loss after opening the season on the bench, has made all nine of his shots on the season to go along with five blocks and four steals.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (2-0): Eric Gordon started in place of Paul in Wednesday’s win and finished with 25 points, although he needed 23 shots to get there. Center Clint Capela carried much of the load with 22 points on 10-of-12 shooting to go along with 17 rebounds and three steals, while James Harden moved to the point guard position and handed out nine assists versus just two turnovers. Trevor Ariza missed all five of his 3-point attempts in the victory and is 3-for-15 from the floor on the season.

Oddsmakers opened the Rockets as 11-point favorites versus the Mavericks, while the game’s total opened at 213.5.

The Houston Rockets opened the season with an impressive 2-0 road trip, but they return home on a bit of a negative note. Star point guard Chris Paul is expected to miss up to four weeks with a bruised left knee, which will leave him out of the home opener Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Paul, acquired in a massive trade with the Los Angeles Clippers in June, initially suffered the injury in the preseason and hobbled through a season-opening win at Golden State before sitting out Wednesday’s 105-100 win at Sacramento. According to reports, Houston has reached out to the camp of veteran Jameer Nelson, who was recently released by the Denver Nuggets and has cleared waivers. The Mavericks have dropped their first two games – both at home – after they were dominated on the boards in a 93-88 setback against Sacramento on Friday. Rookie Dennis Smith Jr., who was impressive in his debut against Atlanta on Wednesday, was a late scratch due to a left knee effusion.

The Rockets were a 105-100 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Kings. They failed to cover the -7-point spread as favorites, while the total score (205) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Dallas, they were a 93-88 loser as they battled the Kings at home. The Mavericks failed to cover in the match as a -6-point favorite, while 181 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
