The Houston Rockets (9-5) host the Toronto Raptors (8-6) starting at 7 p.m. CT on Wednesday night. The surging Rockets are looking to win their fourth consecutive game behind early MVP candidate James Harden. Amid the winning streak, the Rockets saw Patrick Beverley return to their lineup and have won three straight with him back.

The Dallas Mavericks (2-11) host the Los Angeles Clippers (13-2) starting at 7:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday night. Dallas’ nightmare season continues as injuries have severely plagued its lineup, including three of its top five starters. The NBA’s sixth all-time leading scorer, Dirk Nowitzki, has missed the previous eight games due to an Achilles injury, but could return Wednesday. Meanwhile, Mavs guard Deron Williams, center Andrew Bogut, and guard J.J. Barea (out six weeks) have all sustained calf injuries. Williams won’t play Wednesday, but is close to returning, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon. Bogut is a game-time decision and his availabilty will be determined after warm-ups. Dallas guard Devin Harris (toe) will also miss Wednesday’s tilt with the league-best Clippers as he is still about a week away from seeing the floor.

The Dallas Stars (8-7-5) hit the ice on Wednesday when they take on the Nashville Predators (8-7-3) at Bridgestone Arena starting at 7 p.m. CT.

Stars captain Jamie Benn removed the monkey off the team’s back, scoring his sixth goal of the year 1:23 into the extra period. Nashville is also looking to win its second straight game, coming off a 3-1 victory over Tampa Bay on Monday night. For a full preview of Wednesday’s matchup, click here: tx.ag/pmVqyf4
The NFL kicks off its Thanksgiving Day triple-header starting at 11:30 a.m. CT (CBS) when Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions (6-4) host the Minnesota Vikings (6-4). Shortly following, the league-best Dallas Cowboys (9-1) host Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins (6-3-1) starting at 3:30 p.m. CT (FOX). To end the day, the Indianapolis Colts (5-5) — who will be without quarterback Andrew Luck — host the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-5) starting at 7:30 p.m. CT (NBC).
To add to the Turkey Day festivities, the Texas A&M football team (8-3) hosts the LSU Tigers (8-3) starting at 6:30 p.m. CT on Thursday. The Aggies, who were ranked No. 4 in the nation three weeks ago, have fallen out of the top 25 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. The Tigers are also unranked after their 16-10 loss to Florida on Saturday. Despite being a non-ranked matchup, there is still a lot on the line for the two teams, including bowl considerations. The outcome of Thursday’s game could potentially have an impact on the futures of both teams’ head coaches. For a full preview of Thursday’s game, click here: tx.ag/oYDe1Vi
