Mav’s dominate the Thunder!
The #3 Dallas Mavericks dominated the #4 Oklahoma City Thunder 93-87, last night! The Mav’s are now ahead (2-1) in the Western Conference Finals series. The Thunder never had the lead the whole game, and the Mav”s even extended their lead to 23 points in the second quarter. Mav’s Dirk Nowitzki shot poorly (7-21, 18 points) similar to arch-rival Kevin Durant (7-22, 24 points), but the supporting cast and Mav’s D out did the Thunder. Nowitzki did also have seven TO’s, which equaled Thunder PG Russell Westbrook seven TO’s. Westbrook did end up with 30 points on an ok 8-20 shooting. The Key to the game really was Mav’s D(efense) that kept the Thunder to a low 11 assists and knocked out the Thunder secret scoring weapon James Harden (2-9, 7 points). For the Mav’s: Jason Kidd was approaching a triple-double (13 points, eight assists, six boards, and four steals), Tyson Chandler was big on the boards (15 boards), and Shawn Marion was red hot with 18 points on 9-13 shooting!
