Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Monday, 30th March 2021, at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Preview

After being overwhelmed on a history-making night for first-time All-Star forward Zion Williamson, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle knows his team are in for another tricky clash to start the week in Oklahoma.

Williamson recorded 38 points, either scoring or assisting on the Pelicans' last 14, to erase a 95-94 deficit against a Dallas side without leading scorer Luka Doncic (illness) and Kristaps Porzingis (rest). 

“He's just creating collisions out there. This is a Shaquille O'Neal-type force of nature with a point guard skillset. You've got to have a lot of courage to stand in there and get run over by Zion, because he's coming at you fast." 

Although coach Mark Daigneault said keyguard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (plantar fasciitis) would miss a "significant amount of time", they won two straight before home defeats to the Grizzlies and Celtics last week. 

Rookie guard Theo Maledon (22 pts, eight rebs) and Moses Brown (23 rebs, 21 pts) impressed, but there's an increasingly raw look to their starting lineup now Al Horford has been shut down for the rest of the season, coupled with SGA's absence and promising second-year SF Luguentz Dort entering the concussion protocol. 

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is pulling no punches with their prediction, and considering the Thunder's injury problems, and it's no surprise either - backing them with a 71.9% win probability percentage here.

I'm expecting Maledon and fellow rookie Aleksej Pokusevski to do their best in keeping this competitive. However, with or without Doncic, Dallas should have more than enough firepower to see this game through.
