Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder beat the Warriors in OKC before Thanksgiving. Friday night, it will have a chance to get back to .500 with a win at home over the Pistons.
That will likely happen, as the Thunder are still overpowering at home. It didn’t play much better than it has in the win over the Warriors, tactically speaking. But the Thunder physically overpowered and outworked Golden State.
Even on the road, that’s likely to happen against Dallas too.
Dallas can’t come close to comparing with Oklahoma City’s talent and aggressiveness. Though, it OKC just decides to coast, it still doesn’t play good enough basketball as a team to handle bad teams on cruise control.
That is worrisome because either this team will struggle and finish in the middle of the Western Conference playoff standings or it will finish toward the top and overwork itself in the regular season.
There’s just too much isolation. That worked for the Heat five, six, seven years ago but it won’t anymore. Especially not in the Western Conference where teams are playing better basketball.
The Mavs will give a consistent effort. This team tries and plays hard but it is simply dealing with a talent shortage.
This game will come down to how the Thunder plays. Dallas is capable of winning this game if Oklahoma City doesn’t think it has to bring it.
Dennis Smith is often compared to Russell Westbrook so I suspect that Westbrook will really come at him. And when Westbrook is playing hard, usually the rest of the Thunder’s roster follows suit. Smith will hold his own against Westbrook’s athleticism. He is the same sort of player, going back to Russ’ rookie season.
In the last three, Dallas has destroyed Milwaukee at home, nearly snapped the Celtics’ winning streak when it was at 15 before eventually losing in OT at home and most recently defeated the Grizzlies at home.
That’s an impressive stretch that suggests a team with just two wins before the stretch is improving.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction: the Thunder win a game it has to work way too hard to win.
It’s the theme of the season for OKC so far. Nothing looks easy for this team. Compare them with the Warriors, Rockets, Spurs and OKC is clearly the odd team out, if you ask me.
