WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Oklahoma City Thunder
WHAT: A chance to take the series
WHERE: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT
THE STORY: After two days' rest, the Mavericks are expected to have both Monta Ellis and J.J. Barea available tonight for a matchup against a Kevin Durant-less OKC team that's trying to stay in the eighth spot in the West. But the Thunder still have Russell Westbrook, who can take over a game all by his lonesome, so don't be fooled: this is still a challenging game. The Mavs have plenty to fight for -- they do need to try to stay in that seventh spot to avoid the Warriors in the first round. Should be a fun one kids.
LET'S. GO. MAVS.
