DALLAS _ Whenever the Dallas Mavericks play the Houston Rockets, for owner Mark Cuban it becomes personal.
"It's personal in a lot of ways,'' Cuban said of the Mavs-Rockets I-45 rivalry. "It's always personal because if you lose you’re going to hear about it from all your friends.
"My sister-in-law lives in Houston, so I don’t want to hear about it.''
Cuban's Mavs wound up beating the Rockets on Thursday, 111-106.
