Through 3 Quarters

The point spread is against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but thus far the points are on their side. They have emerged as the frontrunner after three quarters and are ahead of the Dallas Mavericks 85-76.

The Thunder have been led by point guard Tre Mann, who so far has shot 5-for-7 from downtown and has recorded 25 points.

Dallas has been relying on the performance of point guard Luka Doncic, who has 26 points and seven assists. A double-double would be Doncic’s fourth in a row.

Dallas has lost 87% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this season, so this one seems just about wrapped up
