Dallas has had a very unusual break as they have had five days off between games. That normally does not happen during the regular season but the holiday gave the Mavericks some extra rest. Dallas has been one of the best teams this season and they come into this game having won 16 of their last 17. Dallas planned for this break before the season even began and they had a schedule that was expected to keep them fresh and prepared.
Thunder 8-8 ATS at Home
