This Game 4 matchup could be the end of the Mavs playoff push.
The Mavs look to stay alive here in the postseason, atleast for one more game.
The Thunder look to clean this series up and get some rest before the next series.
The Dallas Mavericks left their home floor overall disappointed in how the home stretch ended up, going 0-2 during their time at home.
They played tough against the Thunder in game 4, but was not enough as the Thunder keeps putting points in mass amounts.
Dirk Nowitzki was able to produce again in this series, posting 27 points to go with 8 rebounds. Raymond Felton was productive in the game as well in the loss, he put up a stat line that included another double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds.
The Mavs have been struggling to stop this Thunder offense, but when they were able to keep the game low scoring they were able to prevail in game 2 with the win in Oklahoma City.
Dirk will need to have another postseason Dirk game that he has been having, then they will need some help from Felton and the gang again on both sides of the court.
Dallas looks to stay alive this season and take a trip back to Dallas.
The Thunder seem to have figured out the keys to success for this series. The Thunder have been scoring at will it seems the past two games.
They have controlled the tempo throughout this series, except for the slip up in game 2. The big difference maker in this series has been Enes Kantar coming off the bench for the Thunder.
Kantar posted a big stat line with 28 points and 5 rebounds off the bench on Saturday night. Russell Westbrook continued his stat packing ways with 25 points, 15 assists, and 5 rebounds.
Kevin Durant had a solid game for the Thunder with 19 points, 4 assists, and 4 rebounds. The Thunder need to focus on keeping the ball going up and down the court to get Dallas to feel uncomfortable.
The Thunder will look to get this game over with early to get their starters some rest to get ready for the Spurs who had a clean sweep against the Grizzlies.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
The Thunder seem to be very hungry in this series after giving up a cheap game at home. Look for the same things to happen in this game that has been happening for the whole series. Look for a lot of Durant and Westbrook very early in this game.
I look for them to spend the last part of the game sitting on the bench so they do not risk injury before the big Spurs series.
