Texas Three-Step (Dallas, Houston, San Antonio)

The “Texas Three-Step” means a trip to the cities of Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. In the National Basketball Association, “Texas Three-Step” means a tough Texas road trip against the Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs. The “Texas Three-Step” is sometimes also called the “Texas Triangle” or the “Golden Triangle” or the “Texas Trifecta.”
 
The name “Texas Three-Step” (recorded from the 1990s) borrows from the dance “Texas Two-Step.”

But they just lost their last three on the toughest road trip in the NBA this season – the Texas three step of Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, A lot of teams are going to lose three in a row going on that road trip.
