Game Thread: Mavericks at Thunder

Who: The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Dallas Mavericks

What: The second game in a 4-game swing. It only gets harder from here.

Where: Oklahoma City Arena, Oklahoma City, OK

When: 7:00pm CT/8:00pm ET


The Story:

The Thunder got off to a shaky start, but have played incredibly well, winning five straight. OKC is a young team, with perhaps one of the greatest in the league in Kevin Durrant. The Mavericks are old veterans who have handled the Thunder in the past, but on the second game of a back-to-back, fatigue could prove to be a problem. After Dirk Nowtizki had a season-high 42 points against the Pistons, he will need the rest of his team to step up tonight.
