The Oklahoma City Thunder will try and forget about their awful shooting in Game 3 and even the Western Conference finals on Monday night as they host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4.  The Thunder started very poorly on Saturday in Game 3 and although they made a late run, they couldn’t get the win and lost 93-87.  Oklahoma City now faces what is almost a must-win game on Monday night.

The Thunder is 4-point favorites with a total of 195.5 at SBG Global.com.

The Dallas Mavericks did win Game 3 on Saturday night to take a 2-1 series lead but it was not pretty. Dirk Nowitzki had one of his worst shooting games for the Mavericks but the difference was the horrible start that Oklahoma City got off to and their pathetic 3-point shooting.  The Thunder were just 1 for 17 from long range in Game 3.  The Mavericks almost let a 23-point lead slip away before holding on for the six point win. Dallas did get the win though and now the pressure is squarely on the Thunder in Game 4.

If the Thunder are to win on Monday they have to shoot the ball better. They were just 36.5 percent from the field and they were 0 for 16 from 3-point range until Russell Westbrook threw one up late that finally went in.  Kevin Durant was 0 for 8 from long range.  The Dallas defense was good but Oklahoma City missed a lot of open shots and inexplicably continued to shoot from the outside.  The Thunder have to get a much better betting game from Durant if they are to even this series on Monday night.

Here are the betting stats for Monday’s game. The Mavericks are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Mavericks are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog. The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and the road team in this series is 19-7-2 ATS in the last 28 meetings. The Thunder are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 Monday games.

The Over is 4-1 in the Mavericks last 5 overall. The Over is 8-3 in the Mavericks last 11 games as a road underdog. In this series, the Under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings at Oklahoma City.
