Game Thread: Mavericks (23-5) at Thunder (21-10)

Who: The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Dallas Mavericks

What: The Mavericks' first game after nearly a week-long holiday break

Where: Oklahoma City Arena, Oklahoma City, OK

When: 7:00pm CST

How: League Pass | FSSW-DAL | FSOK | KESN | WWLS

The Story: Dallas will be coming into this game well-rested and ready to continue their streak of big wins. After their road trip to Florida, the Mavericks could register 8-straight victories on the road, a feat they haven't accomplished since 2002. Kevin Durant, the leading scorer in the league, dropped 32 on the Mavericks the last time these teams met, but Dallas was able to get away with a win. Oh and also, Coach Carlisle will not be at the game, thanks to a minor knee surgery. Dwane Casey will be in charge.
