Semifinals Game 1 Pregame Primer: Thunder (0-0) vs. Mavericks (0-0)

Game Info

NBA.com preview | Tip-off: 8:30pm, Paycom Center | Broadcast: Bally Sports OK

3 Big Things

  • Shai vs. Luka. Should we reduce a really interesting series into another star vs. star referendum? No. Will we? If SGA plays better than Luka, probably.
  • Thunder vs. Mavs. Okay, so the headliners are both really awesome players who will eat up a lot of possessions. But Dallas has been playing like one of the more harmonious rosters for some time now, enough to spook plenty of OKC fans ahead of the first real test of this new contending era.
  • Superstitions? I wanna hear about any lucky undies, couch poses, meal rituals, etc. that you have been doing for every playoff win so far.


My lucky tradition has become predicting Thunder blowouts. OKC by 19.
