Fansided: Dallas Mavericks earn win at home over the Oklahoma City Thunder
The Dallas Mavericks had a successful Saturday night as they got a home victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Throughout the game they were looking good, keeping their double-digit lead for the majority of the second half.
The Thunder put up a good effort, but ultimately came up short. Paul George had a double-double, having 20 points and 13 rebounds in 38 minutes of action. However, he struggled to keep his consistency when Oklahoma City needed him the most, shooting 38 percent from the field.
Most of the credit for the Thunder's late push to stay relevant was by Steven Adams, who also put up 20 points and 13 rebounds, but shot a better 72 percent from the field.
Welcome to Loud City: Thunder vs Mavericks, final score: OKC's 7 game win streak snapped on the road, 111-96
The Oklahoma City Thunder saw their seven game win streak snapped on the road tonight against the struggling Dallas Mavericks, 111-96. Playing their 3rd game in 4 nights, the Thunder showed it, struggling to keep up with the previously 3-8 Mavs all night. Dallas, led by super rookie Luka Doncic, who finished with 22-8-6 in 31 minutes, led the game nearly throughout and were not threatened down the stretch, where OKC could barely keep even.
If you want to see what a slightly fatigued and shorthanded team looks like, that was it.
NewsOK.com: Russell Westbrook out vs. Mavericks but is progressing, says Thunder coach Billy Donovan
Russell Westbrook (left ankle sprain) remains sidelined for the Thunder's game at Dallas Saturday, but he has been able to shoot and continues to progress, per OKC coach Billy Donovan.
"He's got to get out there, he's got to practice, move and cut and do those things," Donovan said at shootaround Saturday afternoon, "so that's going to take a little bit of time."
Westbrook sprained his ankle in the Thunder's 122-116 win over the Pelicans Monday. OKC played back-to-back games Wednesday in Cleveland and Thursday at home. The resulting lack of practice time, Donovan said, has made it difficult to estimate a timetable for Westbrook's return.

Fansided: OKC Thunder game preview: A win in Dallas would extend streak to 8-in-a-row
Heading into their 12th game of the 2018-19 season the OKC Thunder arrive in Dallas boasting the longest current win streak of seven games. The Blazers have the second longest streak (3 games) in the West, while the Raptors (5 games) hold the second longest NBA win streak.
At season start OKC lost back to back games without their franchise star Russell Westbrook. He'll miss this match as well, but the difference is OKC have produced back to back wins without him playing a single minute. In fact, the defeat of the Rockets was arguably the team's most complete two-way effort of the year.
Fansided: Dallas Mavericks: How to watch game 12 vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Fansided: Dallas Mavericks: 4 matchups to watch vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder
The Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder have their first meeting of the season on Saturday evening in Texas. They are two teams with contrasting trajectories.
In years past, Dallas and OKC was a rivalry of epic proportions. In its infancy, there were the budding stars of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook along with the sneaky James Harden.
Despite the self-implosion of Dallas after the 2011 championship campaign, the embers of playoffs contests slowly waved. Dallas hasn't won a playoff series since the previously mentioned 2010-2011 season. Moreover, the Thunder are responsible for two of the four first-round knockouts in the Mavs' post-championship era.
