WHO: The Oklahoma City Thunder host the Dallas Mavericks

WHAT: It took another last-second shot for the Thunder...

WHERE: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK

WHEN: 8:30pm CT


THE STORY: There's no question that when these two teams play each other, absolute magic happens. For whatever reason, they come together to create beautifully entertaining basketball. Sometimes Dallas comes out on top, sometimes Oklahoma City does. On Saturday, the game was insanely close and it took another phenomenal, last-second shot from Kevin Durant to give the Thunder their game 1 victory. Does this mean we should all curl up in the fetal position and give up? Despite the appeal of that option, if anything, I think it means we shouldn't count the Mavericks out just yet. Delonte West was feeling quite sick. Dirk Nowitzki didn't have a particularly great game. Jason Terry disappeared in the fourth. These are all things that should change this time around and could improve their chances tonight. Say hi to the folks at Welcome to Loud City.

C'mon, Mavs.
