The Dallas Mavericks and the Oklahoma City Thunder will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS (16-29): The starting backcourt is ailing as point guard Deron Williams (left big toe) departed the contest against the Knicks to join shooting guard Wesley Matthews (hip) on the sidelines. Williams is doubtful to play against the Thunder while Matthews will miss second straight game since being injured on Sunday. Seth Curry stepped in for Matthews and scored 20 points against the Knicks while Devin Harris will start at the point if Williams can’t play.

ABOUT THE THUNDER (27-19): Westbrook’s last two double-doubles have come after he was snubbed in the balloting for the Western Conference All-Star team. He is a shoo-in to be selected as one of the reserves as he attempts to become the first player since Oscar Robertson (1961-62) to average a triple-double over an entire season. Starting center Steven Adams contributed 20 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots against the Pelicans in his second contest since sitting out two games due to a concussion.

Oddsmakers currently have the Thunder listed as 9.5-point favorites versus the Mavericks, while the game’s total is sitting at 198.

Oklahoma City won its last outing, a 114-105 result against the Pelicans on January 25. The Thunder covered in that game as a -1.5-point favorite, while the 219 combined points took the game OVER the total.

The Mavericks were a 103-95 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Knicks. They covered the -2.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (198) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Russell Westbrook‘s career triple-double count is now higher than the legendary Larry Bird, and he looks to add to his total when the Oklahoma City Thunder host the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday. Westbrook recorded his 60th triple-double in Wednesday’s 114-105 victory over New Orleans to break a tie with Bird and move into fifth place on the all-time list.

Westbrook, who posted 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists against the Pelicans for his sixth triple-double in the last seven games and 23rd of the season, understood the magnitude of passing Bird. “Obviously, he’s a legend for a reason, and he’s done a lot of different things for Indiana and the game,” Westbrook told reporters. “It’s an honor, man. I never take this game for granted – to play the game I love every night and to be able to do that is a great accomplishment.” Dallas is enjoying its best stretch of the season as it downed the New York Knicks 103-95 on Wednesday for its fifth win in seven games. Power forward Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting in the victory but will be rested and won’t make the trip to Oklahoma City.
