Pregame notes: Rudy Gay a major concern for Mavericks

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle is worried about Rudy Gay when the Kings face the Mavericks.

In two games against the Mavs, Gay is averaging 32.5 points and nine rebounds while shooting 60 percent.

“We’ve got to limit his quality looks and it’s hard,” Carlisle said. “He’s really one of those unique players who can rise up over you.”

• Isaiah Thomas will miss his seventh consecutive game with a right quad contusion. Kings coach Michael Malone said it hadn’t been decided if Thomas will miss the rest of the season.

• Prediction time: Dallas needs this game, badly. I expect they’ll be focused and ready to play.

Mavericks 107, Kings 100

My record: 48-27 (minus the pregame session missed due to travel issues).
