The Dallas Mavericks travel to Chesapeake Energy Arena to battle the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight.

Meanwhile, the Thunder have been struggling lately, winning just one of their last four games and coming off a 93-90 home loss to the Knicks. Russell Westbrook led the scoring with a game-high 34 points, but shot just 11 of 29 from the field on a rough shooting night while Dion Waiters added 16 points as the Thunder shot just 38 percent from the field. The loss drops OKC to 7-6 on the season and 5-3 at home, but they could be due for some much needed reinforcements as Kevin Durant is a chance to return to the court despite being listed as questionable.
