Preview 77 of 82: Thunder vs Mavericks
Time: 2:30 PM CST
TV: Fox Sports Oklahoma
The Thunder (44-32) are looking to bounce back this afternoon in Oklahoma City, taking on the visiting Dallas Mavericks (29-46) at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Despite losing to the Nuggets on Friday night, the Thunder clinched a playoff berth with a Kings loss yesterday in Houston. With the postseason now a guarantee, OKC will try to improve their current standing (8th) with a win over the Luka Doncic-less Mavericks, as the Rookie of the Year favorite will sit with a thigh contusion.
Tip-off is at 2:30 PM CST and will be televised on Fox Sports Oklahoma. The Thunder are 12-point home favorites according to Odds Shark.
