Tim Cato is a journalism student at the University of North Texas and manager at Mavs Moneyball. He's a mediocre rec center hooper who thinks his jumper is a little bit more like Dirk's than it really is, and enjoys watching other Dallas sports teams in his (rare) free time.

Didn't you? The Mavericks roll the Thunder up and discard them in a 109-86 win on the road.

Four-Pointer: Previewing the Thunder

Tonight, the Mavericks travel the long, arduous trip up to Oklahoma -- okay, it's not even an hour by charter flight. But in a potential first round playoff match-up, this game has major implications.

MMB Roundtable: The bench

Our circular table of Mavericks discussion included talks about the Dallas bench unit. Also: cheesecake. Why would you sit at a table if you weren't going to eat cheesecake?

QUOTEBOARD: "We missed shots."
