The Dallas Mavericks host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday, Nov. 10.  Fans are going to want to tune for their first meeting of the season.

The Dallas Mavericks return home for their first of four regular-season meetings against the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Mavs have lost seven of their last eight games and are looking to get back on track on Saturday evening.

The Thunder are likely without All-Star Russell Westbrook tonight.  He suffered a scary looking ankle sprain on Monday against the Pelicans.  The NBA official injury report lists Westbrook as out, but that could change before tipoff.

Here is how fans can watch the Nov. 10 contest between the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Start Time

Saturday’s game begins at 8:00 p.m. local time in Dallas or 9:00 p.m. ET.

How to watch

The contest is on television in both local markets only this evening.  Dallas viewers can watch on Fox Sports Southwest and fans in Oklahoma City should tune into Fox Sports Oklahoma.

Watch online

Fubo TV is again the top place to watch online because they feature both NBA League Pass and all your favorite networks.

Fans in both local markets can also stream via Fox Sports Go.

Matchup to follow- Luka Doncic vs. Paul George

Mavericks star rookie Luka Doncic is averaging 20.2 points per game through his first 11 contests.  His scoring ability seems to improve every time out, and the Mavs are drooling at the 19 years old’s potential.

Fans can bet that the Thunder are going to want five-time All-Star Paul George matching up on Doncic.  George is one of the NBA’s best wing defenders, and he always wants the challenge of guarding the other team’s best scorer.

It will be a tough test for the rookie, but Doncic has passed every one so far.  Keep an eye on this matchup during Saturday’s game.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks have to like their chances at a victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Mavs are at home.  The Thunder are without their best player.  Dallas is also expecting veteran guard Devin Harris to return on Nov. 10.  All signs point to a Mavericks victory, but it will be no easy task.

Another exciting matchup is the battle down low.  Oklahoma City’s starting center, Steven Adams, appears to have taken another step forward this offseason.  DeAndre Jordan will be no pushover, though.  The Mavericks need to win the rebounding battle and get Jordan locked in on defending the paint to earn the home victory tonight.
