Default May 19 Playoffs: WCF Thunder at Mavericks Game 2

The AP reports:

Because Nowitzki had such a historic performance, it’s easier for the Thunder to find some positives in Game 1, starting with them keeping things close to the end.

Although Dallas went up by 16 early in the fourth quarter, Oklahoma City rallied to get within five. The Thunder also scored 112 points, 15 more than the Mavericks had allowed all postseason.

Plus, they did all that with Russell Westbrook pulling an anti-Nowitzki, missing 12 of 15 shots.

So Oklahoma City fans have to be thinking that if Nowitzki misses a few more, and Westbrook makes a few more, the Thunder can still go back across the Red River with a split. It’s also worth noting they’ve yet to lose consecutive games this postseason.

“That’s one thing about this team, we’re resilient, we bounce back,” Thunder star Kevin Durant said. “Hopefully it’s another case of that in Game 2.”

Durant scored 40 points in the opener, but was overshadowed by Nowitzki and was held back by Westbrook’s woes. Late in the third quarter, the misfiring point guard had attempted more shots than the NBA’s scoring leader the last two seasons.

Marion has really sucked in the playoffs. They need Butler or give Brewer more minutes.

His defense has been good but he hasn't brought in a lot of scoring like he did in the regular season off the bench. I think he needs to go back to the bench. Maybe he'll play better there.

Perk was so late rotating on the Dirk dunk.

You can always tell when Westbrook is going to shoot...dribble...dribble some more...hoist up shot. I think that is the main problem the Thunder have sometimes...their offense can become very predictable.

Perk's defense has really been disappointing in the playoffs especially against the Mavs. But he is playing with an injury.
