The Dallas Mavericks are looking to snap a two-game losing streak as the Oklahoma City Thunder visit the American Airlines Center on Monday night. It is the second meeting of the season between the two teams, and Dallas would love to forget the first one as Luka Doncic and company blew a 16-point edge over the final four minutes and lost in overtime.
The Thunder have lost two straight and four of their last seven to fall to 11-15 on the season. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 30.8 points, 5.9 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game, but Oklahoma City is just not ready to contend quite yet. Still, expect them to give the Mavs all they handle on Monday night at the AAC.
Fans will not want to miss this contest. Luka Doncic will be locked in, and that usually means fireworks, so here is a look at the odds, injury report, how to watch, and more.

Dallas Mavericks vs Oklahoma City Thunder injury report
Fans thought the Mavs rested three players on Saturday night. It was the second of a back-to-back, and it seemed natural, but that was not the case. Josh Green remains out with a right elbow sprain, and Maxi Kleber is questionable with right foot soreness. Luka Doncic will play. Dallas also ruled out McKinley Wright IV because he is on G League assignment, but Tyler Dorsey will be available for Monday’s game versus the Thunder. Davis Bertans was also a late add with an illness, and he will not play on Dec. 12.
Oklahoma City will be without Kenrich Williams (knee), Chet Holmgren (foot), Ousmane Dieng (G League), and Lindy Waters III (G League) on Monday night. They are the only four players listed on their official injury report.
