As far as the series it self, do you think the Mavericks having over a week off is a good thing for them...or a bad one? Some say that they need the rest because they are an older team, but others say they Mavericks were on a roll and this break is the last thing they needed. The Thunder just finished a tough series with the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, so they have had no rest at all. The Thunder are a younger team, so do they even need the rest?
Sbnation.com says one of the more important things in this series is that Dallas has home court advantage:
Dallas has home court advantage, which should come in handy; Oklahoma City has gone 2-3 on the road in these playoffs and 6-1 at home. Dallas showed an ability to win on the road by taking Game 6 in Portland against the Trail Blazers and sweeping the Lakers in Games 1 and 2 in Los Angeles. But that won't matter this week, as the Mavericks -- undefeated in the playoffs at home -- play host for the first two games.
With all that being said, we'll find out tonight if the Mavs seem sluggish...or if they see refreshed by the week long break. Besides, what's really important are the cheerleaders for both teams. Here's video of both squads!
