Game Thread: Thunder (1-3) at Mavericks (3-1): GAME FIVE

WHO: The Dallas Mavericks host the Oklahoma City Thunder

WHAT: Western Conference Finals, Game Five

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 8:00pm CT


THE STORY: Wouldn't it be nice if the Mavericks could get another week's rest in before (possibly) going to the finals? A win tonight would certainly give them more time to rest their legs after two very impressive wins (for two very different reasons). Game three was noteworthy because the Mavericks overcame a bad night from Dirk and a drastic free throw disparity. Game four was impressive because OH MY GOD DID YOU WATCH THE LAST FIVE MINUTES? It sure would be a nice cherry on top of this series to go out on top on their home court, wouldn't it? Stop by Welcome To Loud City for a visit, and check out the links below the jump.
