Both teams have a lot to play for. Oklahoma City is trying to catch the San Antonio Spurs for the top seed in the Western conference. Dallas is in a dogfight with the Phoenix Suns for the final playoff spot in the Western conference. Dallas, Phoenix and Memphis are competing for the final two spots out west Oklahoma City has dominated the recent meeting with Dallas winning nine of their past ten head to heads. OKC is 4-0 straight up against Dallas in their past four games played at Dallas. In those four games against the spread the Thunder covered three of those games and one ended in a push against the betting line. The issues facing the Dallas Mavericks are their age and defense. Dallas is an old team and we are seeing the play of Dirk Nowitzki beginning to digress. He no longer rebounds at the rate he did in previous seasons. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently went public about his disappointment about his clubs defensive play. It has to be concerning when you look at the high point totals allowed by Dallas in recent games. They have lost two of their past three home games as the allowed 107 points to Brooklyn on Sunday and 123 points were allowed to Minnesota on Wednesday all resulting in straight up losses and against the spread. Dallas has not covered their past three games. This old team is really staggering to the finish line as with 11 games remaining they may miss the postseason.
