For those of you with league pass, the game to keep an eye on tonight is probably Mavericks vs. Thunder. The matchup plays a role in the NBA playoff layout. Both team will be fighting for the places they need to get the matchup they want.
OKC travels just a few hundred miles south, meeting Dallas in a matchup of annual Western Conference powers who are both enduring the wild swings of a roller-coaster season.
Neither team is raising any eyebrows with their play as of late – OKC is 6-4 in their last 10, while Dallas is just 5-5 – but both teams are coming off home victories over playoff teams, and will look to capitalize on whatever momentum they might have built in those.
Dallas should have the fresher legs, as they haven’t played since Friday. OKC is coming off a tough game against the Bulls on Sunday afternoon.
