It will air live on TNT on Monday May 13th starting at 9:30 pm ET so make sure not to miss it if betting or simply watching.

Oklahoma City Thunder have proven themselves as one of the strongest teams this season, boasting an outstanding 57-25 record and performing exceptionally in postseason play – their performance as evidenced by impressive stats like an average of 108 points per game with 47.4% shooting accuracy from the field and 39.1% success from 3-point range; their defensive game also stands out with 44.2 rebounds per game as well as averaged 7.5 steals and 5.8 blocks; but one weakness seems to be on-road performance where they struggled to cover spreads in 5 of their last 7 road games.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (PG) vs. Luka Doncic (PG)

Oklahoma City’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been an outstanding performer, playing crucial minutes and scoring 28.5 points per game in 2017. His all-around gameplay can be seen through his 7.5 rebounds per game and 6.2 assists per game as well as contributing defensively with 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks each game he played last season. Shai will need to lead their offense while upholding defensive responsibilities against Dallas with their turnover rate likely giving away opportunities for them to score fastbreak points quickly.

Luka Doncic exemplifies Gilgeous-Alexander’s performance for Dallas with 28.4 points per game while exerting even greater control of game flow with 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds per game, surpassing even Gilgeous-Alexander in three-point shooting accuracy and free throw conversion efficiency. Furthermore, Luka’s strong defensive game marked by 1.4 steals per game is essential in neutralizing Shai’s influence.

Conflict between these two key players is an integral component to this storyline, both being playmakers with the power to dramatically turn around any given game. Their matchup can have an enormous effect on its outcomes as each has the capacity to outdo each other on any given night.
