Patience-minded Mavs host pressure-free Rockets

As the Dallas Mavericks prepare to host the Houston Rockets in their home opener Tuesday at American Airlines Center, patience remains a buzzword.

The offseason change at the front of the Mavericks' bench was significant enough to inspire cries for that patience, especially following an 26-point season-opening loss to the Atlanta Hawks last week.

With Jason Kidd having replaced Rick Carlisle, enough has changed for the Mavericks (even with the bulk of Dallas' roster remaining intact from last season) to require a period of acclimation.
