The Dallas Mavericks are looking to bounce back from a tough 100-98 loss Tuesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.

On Wednesday night, they take on the Chicago Bulls, a team also without its former MVP.

Dirk Nowitzki and Derrick Rose have yet to suit up for their respective teams this season, and that has led to some early season struggles as Dallas is 7-8 and Chicago is 6-7.

Chicago suffered a crushing loss on Monday as they blew a 27-point lead to Milwaukee and ended up losing 93-92 at home. The Bulls are now 3-4 on their home court, but the Mavs are just 2-5 on the road.

Dallas will try to recover from a horrific fourth quarter Tuesday night against Philly, where they committed six straight turnovers on six consecutive possessions. That led to a 12-0 run that gave the 76ers the lead they would not relinquish.

Something has to give tonight as these two struggling teams try to right the ship without their superstars.

The game tips off around 7 PM CT tonight.
