DALLAS -- Just because Houston has dropped four straight games, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki acknowledged that now is not the time to fall asleep at the wheel on the Rockets.
"That's another team that always competes,'' Nowitzki said. "I don't care who they throw out there, they play hard and they played us tough twice already.
"They're a good defensive team, they play hard, so they're going to give it their best shot.''
Back on Mar. 24, the Mavs won in Houston in overtime, 101-99. Three days later in Dallas, the Mavs prevailed over the Rockets, 90-81.
The Mavs (34-28) host the Rockets (32-29) at 7:30 Wednesday night.
