The Mavs are looking for their seventh victory in nine games, as well as their third straight over Portland.

However, the task will be a difficult one, as the Trail Blazers have one of the best home crowds in the NBA, and All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge has averaged 27 points in his last five games against Dallas.

Dallas dispatched Portland in a matchup at American Airlines Center on November 5th, routing the Blazers 114-91. O.J. Mayo had 32 points and Darren Collison had a season high 13 assists in that game.

This is a rematch of the 2011 first round Western Conference playoff series, a series Dallas won 4 games to 2 en route to its first championship.

The game can be seen on TV on Fox Sports Southwest , and it can also be heard on 103.3 FM ESPNDallas.

Tonight's matchup tips off around 9:00 PM CT.
