Box Score

The Thunder stayed perfect thanks to a Kevin Durant three pointer at the buzzer. You can see the end to one of the craziest finishes in the NBA season above.

It looked like it was going to be a long night for the Thunder, the Mavs too an early 19-10 lead in the first. The Thunder quickly leveled the score and the game was pretty much back and forth throughout the night. Which set up for a wild final 2 minutes.

On Dallas’ final possession, with the Mavs trailing by 2, Dirk drove to the top of the key. The defense collapsed on him, allowing Dirk to hit a wide open Vince Carter who nailed a three. This gave the Mavs a one point lead with 1.4 seconds remaining. OKC called timeout but it seemed like this game was going to end like most of the Western Conference Finals games last year. Where the Thunder are able to keep closing but letting the game slip away from them at the end. But Durant was able to hit the buzzer beater, and keep the Thunder perfect for the season.

Serge Ibaka, 16 points and 8 rebounds, was able to break out of his slump today. However, after coming up with a huge offensive rebound, he missed two free throws right before Dallas' last possession. While Westbrook, improved from his horrible showing last night, with 16 points on 6-15 shooting.
