Notes: The Thunder and Mavericks met four times this year with OKC winning all four games. The two games held in Oklahoma City were won by the Thunder by scores of 108-89 and 117-114. The team was the three seed and it was clinched for some time now. It allowed OKC to drop three of their past four games and still keep their seed.
Dallas had the look of a lotter team a couple of weeks ago. They have an old roster and look spent following the All-Star break. The schedule got easier and the Mavs won seven of nine games to make the post season.
