Oklahoma City and Dallas have played three times previously this season. OKC won on their home court by two points back on the December 29th laying -5 points. They split two games played at Dallas.

It has not been a good regular season for this Dallas Mavericks team as they enter play at 22-16 on the year. The team was in the midst of a four game losing streak prior to their 102-96 home win to the Utah Jazz on Saturday night as a -7 ½ point betting favorite. Dallas has struggled mightily on the offensive end of the court as Saturday’s win against the Jazz was the first time they scored 100 or more points in a game in eight games. They make just 43.7% of their shots while the Thunder connects on 47.2% from the floor. Dallas has performed poorly against the betting line as they have failed to cover a point spread in five straight games.

Oklahoma City was riding a seven game winning streak as they closed out a three game road trip at Atlanta back on Saturday night. OKC was humbled in defeat to the Atlanta Hawks by a score of 97-90 as a -6 point road favorite as the team could not close out the game in the fourth quarter. The loss came as the team was playing their third game in four nights. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook scored 60 of the Thunders 90 points so the Thunder will need stronger effort on the offensive end of the court from their supporting cast.
