The Dallas Mavericks will try to rebound from a poor effort on Monday night against the Atlanta Hawks as they take on the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night at the American Airlines Center, the Mavs' fourth straight home game on their season-long five-game homestand.

The Mavs will try to win their 18th straight regular-season home game against the Kings, while also winning their third overall matchup of this season.

Dallas has a good chance to get back on track by knocking off a Kings team that it has beaten 13 of the last 14 times. O.J. Mayo scored 19 points in a 119-96 home win over Sacramento earlier in December.

The Mavs have outscored Sacramento by an average of 14.8 points in their lengthy home regular-season series winning streak.

The Kings had won two straight prior to Tuesday's 108-101 loss at Memphis, and Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is averaging 26.3 in his last three versus the Mavericks.

Wednesday night's matchup can be seen on television on Fox Sports Southwest, and it can also be heard on the radio on 103.3 FM ESPNDallas. The game tips off around 7:30 PM CT.
