Struggling Mavs, Suns meet, try to get on track

DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, two teams struggling to gain some positive traction this season, enter Monday night's matchup on opposite ends of the emotional spectrum.

The Mavs (8-22) were minutes away from a road victory Saturday at San Antonio before the Spurs went on a 13-0 run to steal a game Dallas controlled throughout. At the same time, the Suns (10-21) earned a rare come-from-behind road win at Minnesota.

Now, Dallas needs a win over the Suns to avoid already a fifth losing streak of at least five games this season, while Phoenix looks to notch consecutive victories for the first time since mid-November.
