There will be three NBA games in action this Thursday night. Two of them will be featured in a TNT doubleheader.
The first nationally televised game starts at 7:00 p.m. EST, featuring the 21-4 Oklahoma City Thunder battling the 12-11 Minnesota Timberwolves. The Thunder are currently riding a 12 game win streak and seem to have adjusted just fine from the James Harden trade. The Timberwolves hope to continue acclimiating Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love after recovering from injuries.
The second game features the 16-6 Miami Heat battling the 12-13 Dallas Mavericks, with coverage starting around 9:30 p.m. EST on TNT. The Heat have struggled on the road (only .500 on the season), and will try and beat a Dallas team that's thrived at home.
In a local telecast, the Denver Nuggets and the Portland Trailblazers play each other around 10:00 p.m. in the Rose Garden. TV action can be found ALT2 and KGW.
