The Dallas Mavericks continue to look for a way to make road wins translate into home success when they host the reeling Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. The Mavericks' stated goal of avoiding the NBA's play-in tournament into the Western Conference playoffs has stalled of late, mostly due to three straight home defeats at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks.
