The Dallas Mavericks hit the road, and visit the Oklahoma City Thunder. Dallas is struggling this season. The Mavericks are eight games under .500 and are 1-5 on the road this year.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are two games under .500 through 12 games this season. Expectations were set high for the Thunder this year. They are 3-2 at the Chesapeake Center this year.
Last season, the two teams faced each other three times. The Thunder won the season series, 2-1. In their most recent matchup, the Thunder won at home in a thriller, 92-91. This game has potential for the same outcome.
The Dallas Mavericks are struggling this season. Currently sitting at 2-10 to start the year, the team could be in for one of their worst franchise records. If so, the Mavericks will be looking at tanking.
The first pick in the draft is something that could give life to a once well respected NBA franchise.
The Mavericks have lost four of their last five games, but got their most recent win on the road against the Wizards, 113-99. The win against what some consider a contender in the Eastern conference, could be a confidence booster for the Mavericks.
The Mavericks have five players scoring in double figures for them this year. Dirk Nowitzki has been the long time number one scoring option for the Mavericks, but father time has gotten the best of him. Nowitzki is averaging 10.2 points per game this season.
Aside from Nowitzki’s decline in performance, Harrison Barnes has been the go to guy for the Mavericks.
Barnes is averaging 18.4 points per game this year. Highly touted rookie Dennis Smith Jr is averaging 14.2 points per game. If Smith can continue to develop, Dallas can be a force in the next few seasons.
Aside from their poor performance during the first 12 games, the Mavericks are allowing 107 points per game this year. Good enough for 19th in the NBA this season.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been not played well together to start the year. The team went out and got Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in free agency, but so far the two stars have not been able to mesh together with Russell Westbook.
The three stars are all averaging over or close to 20 points per game.
Westbrook is averaging 19.7 points per game this season. That the least most of all three all stars. Just off the eye test, the Thunder look like a “your turn my turn” type of offense. Hopefully for the sake of the Thunder, the team can get over .500 before the all star break.
Right now, to say the Thunder can compete for a title in the West is laughable.
Chemistry takes time, but superstars need proven and respected coaches to lead them as well. If the Thunder are still trending in the wrong direction over the next month, coach Donovan could be looking for a new job.
NBA Betting Trends:
- DAL are 21-6 ATS in their last 27 Sun. games.
- Under is 23-8 in OKC last 31 overall.
- Under is 10-4 in OKC last 14 home games.
Free New York Knicks vs.Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
The Mavericks are going to play hard every game this year, but that does not mean the team will have a winning record. Their lack of talent will cost them to lose more than they win this year. The Mavericks could struggle in this matchup.
The Thunder remain the biggest question mark in the NBA right now. With how loaded their roster is on paper, maybe this roster looks too good to be true. The bench could be an issue against Dallas in this game.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder
This game will be close throughout, but in the end, the Thunder will pull away for the double digit win. Take the Thunder.
