Mavericks vs Thunder Game Preview

The Oklahoma City Thunder are set to face off against the Dallas Mavericks in a crucial game 2 clash on Thursday night at the Paycom Center. Stay up to date on this exciting matchup thanks to our expert NBA analysis!


Oklahoma City Analysis: Coming off strong

The Thunder exhibited their superiority in game 1 at their home arena, clinching a significant 22 point triumph and laying a solid foundation for the rest of the series. This recent success represents the 3rd consecutive victory for the Thunder against Dallas this season, showcasing their dominance with 4 wins out of 5 encounters between the two teams.

Oklahoma has proven to be highly effective on both offense and defense, as evidenced by their strong defensive performance in the first game. By limiting Dallas’ 3 point shooting, they were able to dictate the pace. Additionally, their frontcourt led by Chet Holmgren, gives them a significant advantage on size


Dallas Mavericks Analysis: Looking to break the dogs

This series possesses the potential to unfold in either direction, particularly as it transitions to Dallas for game 3, rendering this game 2 an excellent way for the Mavs to gain momentum going home. Dallas has a history of starting a series with losses, such as their 0-1 defeat on the road in the 1st round, but they managed to come back and secure it in 6 games.

Despite the team’s recent success, injuries remain a persistent problem. Luka Doncic is still listed as probable, and it would be surprising if he didn’t play as the squad is certainly missing his firepower. Unfortunately, Maxi Kleber has been ruled out as well, further depleting an already thin frontcourt lineup for this series.

Overall our basketball analysis suggests OKC is favorite thanks to their home status plus non existent injuries to worry about.
