Read a preview and watch a live stream of the Thunder vs the Mavericks.
Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas.
When: Wednesday March 26, 00:00 GMT
The Dallas Mavericks continue to push to secure a playoff spot in a competitive Western Conference, while the Oklahoma City Thunder are still chasing the top seed.
The Thunder (52-18) are two games behind the San Antonio Spurs at the top of the standings, but they will be pleased with how they bounced back from their heavy defeat to Dallas last week.
Russell Westbrook is likely to feature after being rested for their win over Denver on Monday, while Kevin Durant continued his streak of scoring 25-plus for the 35th straight game.
As a result the entire roster will head into this encounter full of confidence and aware of the fact that they can ill afford to lose any more ground on the Spurs if they are to seal home court advantage.
Dallas (42-39) are 2-2 thus far on an eight-game homestand and have an identical record with the Phoenix Suns, although they currently sit outside of the playoff spots due to their head-to-head record.
Monta Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki amongst others will be key in getting them over the line and into the post-season, but it promises to be an edgy final few weeks to the regular season for the Mavs while the Memphis Grizzlies will also likely be dragged into a three-horse race for the final two spots.
Nevertheless, with so much to play for in their differing situations, this should be a tense encounter between two talented teams in the West.
The Thunder have shown their vulnerability in recent weeks, but they will undoubtedly be looking to avenge that heavy defeat last time out.
