DALLAS It was hard watching the Mavericks lose to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night, but it does guarantee a Game 5 of the Western Division finals back in Dallas next Wednesday.

Tickets for Wednesday's game went on sale Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

No opponent had scored more than 97 points in the first eight Dallas playoff wins, but the Thunder has tallied 112 points in Game 1 and 106 in Game 2.

For those of you not traveling up Interstate 35 to Oklahoma City, the Mavs are hosting a free watch party for fans Saturday night at the American Airlines Center, where the game will be relayed on the giant high-definition video screens.

The Mavs dancers and Maniacs will be on hand and the Fan Shop will be open if you want to get your playoff T-shirts.

Plus, the first 1,000 fans get a Mavs spirit Flag.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 8 o'clock tip-off. Parking will be available in the Platinum parking garage or Lot F and is $5.
