The Pacers begin a Texas two step in Big D on Monday night when they play the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center.

The Pacers will be without Roy Hibbert as he rests his sprained ankle, but hope to have Rodney Stuckey and even C.J. Miles available in some capacity. The Pacers will miss really Hibbert around the rim with the Mavs boasting two of the top five players in number of dunks so far. Tyson Chandler ranks second in the NBA with 39 dunks (likely surpassing leader Anthony Davis' 40 tonight) while Brandan Wright ranks fifth with 26 rim rockers.

Yeah, this should be interesting.

The Mavs are 10-4 so far this season which is only good enough for fifth in the Western Conference currently. Dallas has taken care of business against teams you would expect them to beat, also not a good sign for the short-handed Pacers.
