The NBA's Mavericks and NHL's Stars in Dallas have had another game each called off since of extreme winter season weather in Texas, with one of the postponements being available in Houston.

The Rockets' home game against the Mavericks set up for Friday was delayed along with a meeting in Dallas between the Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning set for Saturday as the Lone Star State handles freezing temperatures, power blackouts and issues with water materials.

The NBA said Thursday it was canceling the Dallas-Houston video game since of a "federal government shutdown" of the Rockets' arena in downtown Houston. The same reason was offered for a postponement of the Mavericks' game versus Detroit in Dallas that was expected to be played Wednesday.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson was among the first to motivate the club to hold off video games as the city started having a hard time with blackouts early in the week. Tampa Bay defeated Dallas in 6 games in the Stanley Cup Final in September before both teams ended up in the very same division when the NHL reconfigured to deal with COVID-19 issues. The next scheduled game for the Stars is Monday at Florida, the start of 5 roadway games in eight days.
