Thunder beat Mavericks, 106-100!

Series tied 1-1

Best player for OKC was James Harden, who on just 9 shot attempts had 23 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals off the bench

Durant scored 24, on 23 shots

Westbrook had 18 and played limited minutes

Eric Maynor was also great for OKC off the bench

Dirk scored 29 in the loss

LOL

This is so awesome. Not even the worst Kobe haters would ever hate on him for a 4th qtr like that.

Never.

You and brans taking the Dirk hate to all time high levels. And I love it. Bring it on.

There's a reason why perfection is the standard for Dirk. Think about it.

First half was like OKc scrubs jumping into Dallas defenders and getting to the FT line. absolutely atrocious.

In the second half harden and cook made some HUGE 3s and that was that.

Well actually, this is what Dirk is supposed to be. Still the old choker and soft player he used to be, one good game wont change anything.

Dirk played great in the fourth, but they should have gotten him the ball more in the third.

Mavericks need to steal one on the road.....if not then they are in trouble.

No doubt James Harden was the x-factor. Without him, Dallas wins fairly easily. OKC just needs to avoid losing both at home.

Again there might have been some iffy calls tonight, just like any other night, but that's no reason to proclaim that the refs cost the Mavs the game tonight. No, it was because the Mavs couldn't pull off decent shots during the closing seconds of the game.

I understand that NBA series in the past have been rigged to make the more popular team win the series, but all these assumptions are getting to be too much. Tonight's game wasn't an intentional rig to make the series tied. It just so happens that OKC was the better team tonight, which shouldn't surprise anyone. It's not like the Thunder reached the WCF by chance.

still don't get how dirk choked

10/17... 29 pts

5 rebounds 5 assist. Hell he probably has more rebound/assists in 2 games than kobe had in 4 games.

Dirk played great in the 4th with 16 points... his teammates just sucked ass and the thunders bench were on fire. Jason kidd the same old choker

First half the refs got OKC into the game. 2nd half Harden had the half of his life.

Good win though for OKC. i fully expect my boys to win game 3.

Ofcourse they can. Just jump into dallas def and get to the FT line. Instant success.
