Re: The Thunder might catch the Mavs in the standings
Chandler's back is acting up and he's been out the last few games, which really hurts their interior D. Dallas has to face some decent teams (PHO/NO/LAC/Hou) while OKC still has games against LAL/DEN/SAC/MIL. A one game lead can be erased.
Personally, I'd like to see the Mavs hold onto their lead and see a Mavs-Lakers matchup. Somehow, there hasn't been a single playoff between these two in the Dirk-Kobe era.
