Everyone knew this was a possible match-up once we got down the last month of the season, but now that’s it’s here, people are more excited than ever. James Harden, the MVP-candidate will look to prove his dominance, while Dirk and the Mavs will try to oust Clutch City for the third time in the playoffs.

Rockets have been bitten by the injury bug and will be without Patrick Beverley (wrist) and Donatas Motiejunas (back), but former-Rocket Chandler Parsons will also be dealing with a sore knee that has been bothering him and kept him out a few games recently.
