WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Oklahoma City Thunder
WHAT: Basketball during a hard week.
WHERE: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: It’s been rough, friends, and the NBA is in mourning. But, there is important basketball also to be played, and tonight the Mavericks take the court against their division mates in Oklahoma City. Chris Paul will be out tonight for personal reasons (unclear if that is related to Kobe Bryant’s death). For the Mavericks, new acquisition Willie Cauley-Stein will dress and be available, though I wouldn’t expect to see much of him as he gets up to speed on how things work in Dallas.
Little of an early tip, friends. Let’s go Mavs!
