What channel is Thunder vs. Mavericks on today? Time, TV schedule, live stream for Game 1 of NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News United Kingdom

The Thunder and Mavericks commence their Western Conference semifinals matchup Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.

After earning the No. 1 seed on the final day of the regular season, the Thunder made quick work of the eighth-seeded Pelicans in their first-round matchup. In a four-game sweep, Oklahoma City’s average margin of victory was 15.75 points.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, on the heels of an MVP-caliber regular season, notched 27.3 points per game. His supporting cast, while young, played exceptionally well, too. Breakout sensation Jalen Williams averaged 21.3 points per game, while Chet Holmgren contributed 15.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks.

The Mavericks sent the Clippers into the offseason, eliminating Los Angeles in a hard-fought, six-game series. That included a statement victory in Game 6, in which Dallas relied on its sudden trademark — stingy defense — and spectacular play from Kyrie Irving.

Luka Doncic also averaged 29.8 points, 9.5 assists and 8.8 rebounds across the six-game set, adding to his ledger of strong playoff performances.

Oklahoma City took three of the four meetings during the regular season against Dallas. Here is everything you need to know about Game 1 between the Thunder and Mavericks.
