Both the Mavericks and Thunder carry winning streaks of different lengths into this Friday night showdown in Dallas.
The Mavericks have rattled off 2 straight with back to back overtime wins over Boston and Minnesota.
The Thunder have won 6 straight, which includes 1 win over the Mavericks during the 6 game stretch.
You’d think with a 32-12 record, the Thunder would be tops in their conference.
That is not the case though as they have the unfortunate dealing of being in Western Conference. In fact, the Thunder sit 7.5 games off the pace and 5 back of the 2nd place Spurs.
The Thunder will tip off a 4 game road trip starting with this one in Dallas as they look to push their winning streak from 6 to 7.
Oklahoma City routed the Mavericks back on 1/13 for their 2nd win in a row as they grabbed a 108-89 win. Kevin Durant put up another 20+ point performance as he finished with 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Serge Ibaka had a solid turn in with a double-double as he finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds.
Russell Westbrook was ejected early in the 1st after getting into a scrap with JJ Barea.
Dallas will look to overcome a bit of fatigue as they’ve endured back to back overtime wins over Boston and Minnesota and have won 3 of their last 4 overall.
The Mavericks sit in 5th place, 14.5 off the pace of first place Golden State as they try to finish off a sweep of their 3 game home stand with a win here on Friday.
The Mavericks dug themselves way too big of a hole in the last meeting between these two as they trailed by 10 after one and 23 after 2. The Mavs were led by JJ Barea, who got Russell Westbrook ejected, but also turned in 18 points and 6 assists.
Salah Mejri had his best performance of the season off the bench as he finished with 17 points and 9 rebounds.
Dallas will have the good fortunes of being at home for this one, a place where they are 13-7 SU and 13-7 ATS.

Free NBA Prediction:
Oklahoma City has built winning streak after winning streak this season.
However, their good play has rewarded them with just 3rd place in the West. They are rolling during this 6 game winning streak and have Durant and Westbrook playing at unreal levels once again.
