Two preseason games set vs. Thunder

By Jeff Caplan

The Dallas Mavericks will play two preseason games against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The first will be at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 18 at American Airlines Center, and the second at 7 p.m. Dec. 20 at Oklahoma City.

All teams are playing a pair of games against teams close in proximity. The Mavs and Thunder could be on the cusp of a nice, little geographic rivalry after meeting in the Western Conference finals.

The regular season is tentatively set to begin on Christmas Day at the AAC against the Miami Heat.
