Dallas Mavericks (0-4) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (0-4)
Time: 3 p.m. CST
Somebody is walking out of Las Vegas with a win. Though it doesn’t matter one bit, I’d like for it to be us. It’s never fun to go defeated. Last night against Chicago, OKC turned the ball over a ton and didn’t shoot all that well. James Harden was great once again, but Kyle Weaver played rather poorly at point guard and nobody else really contributed all that much. I assume Shaun Livingston will play today since he sat yesterday, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Who do the Mavs got?
RODDY BEAUBOIS vs. BYRON MULLENS. What a vengeance match. But seriously, I am excited to watch Beaubois in action. Not because I wish OKC had him, but just because he’s been pretty good in the Summer League. Also, the Mavs have a familiar face on their roster – one Mickael Gelabale. A couple Big 12 faces in Curtis Jerrels and former Kansas Jayhawk Aaron Miles and Shan Foster from Vanderbilt, one of the best shooters I’ve ever seen in college.
This is your last chance to see your Thunder in action for about about three months. So take heed and root on your team. Tip at 3 p.m. CST.
