WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

WHAT: A must-win game that the Mavs might not win.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CDT

HOW: TNT

THE STORY: The last time these two teams squared off, the Mavs pulled off a somewhat baffling and awesome win against the Russell Westbrook-less Thunder in OKC. This time the Thunder roll in to Dallas (see what I did there? Garth Brooks fans, anyone?) but Russell Westbrook IS playing. Calderon is back for the Mavs as well after missing most of that Brooklyn game with a "face." So. Anyone's guess. Except probably OKC will win, because who are we kidding.

Obviously the now ninth-place Mavs need this, though. Let's hope Dirk figured out whatever was ailing him against Brooklyn the other night.
