WHAT: A Kevin Durant-less game.
WHERE: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CT
HOW: FSSW or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: The Mavericks just won't stop forcing all those doom and gloom preseason naysayers to take notice. They head into OKC relatively healthy, with Chandler Parsons having pretty quickly ramped up that minutes restriction, and playing with and for each other and having so much fun in the process. If you haven't had a chance to read Paul Flannery on Dirk and the Mavs this season, take a few minutes pre-game to do so. You won't regret it.
Kevin Durant is out for OKC, which should give the Mavs a fighting chance today, though Russell Westbrook still exists, so who knows. I've stopped making predictions for this team.
Let's go Mavs.
