NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at San Antonio Spurs Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma City Thunder are back in action on Thursday as they host the Dallas Mavericks.

The game is slated to tip-off at 8 p.m. CT and will be shown on Fox Sports Oklahoma.

The Mavericks are heading into Thursday’s matchup, having won 11 of their past 14 games. They’re also gunning for their fifth-straight win after defeating the Spurs 115-104 on Wednesday.

Mavs star Kristaps Porzingis led the team with 28 points and 14 rebounds, so look for him to be another contributing factor on Thursday.

The Thunder, meanwhile, hasn’t played since last Thursday but have won four of its past seven games, coming off a 107-102 over the Spurs.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the team against the Spurs with 33 points and eight assists on 11 of 19 shooting.

On Thursday, watch for the Mavs to shutdown Gilgeous-Alexander as they did earlier this month, SB Nation’s Kirk Henderson reported.

Prediction: Mavericks by 7.
