The Dallas Mavericks and Washington Wizards are on TV all the time. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Sacramento Kings? Not so much, that is why it was great to see these two young Western Conference teams in action.
In game one of the doubleheader the Thunder brought everything they had but fell short in their attempt to top the Mavericks. The Thunder will make the playoffs this year and will be a great team in 2-3 years, but right now they're still a drop away from being an elite team and tonight proved it.
In game two the Kings proved that they are for real, knocking off the struggling Washington Wizards. Get Flip Saunders out of there!
