Re-watching the final minutes of that Thunder-Mavericks game has to be an exercise in madness. It wasn't like the Mavs had a star that the Thunder couldn't stop, or like they were rolling out some revolutionary strategy that the Thunder couldn't match. The Thunder just got out-thought, out-hustled, and out-scored.

At the center of it all is Russell Westbrook, whose decision-making and attitude at the end of games is really having a bad effect of the team. Meanwhile, Westbrook will seemingly feud with Jackson over possessions while the red hot Ibaka sits uselessly in a corner.

But enough words, let's get to the pictures. Here's a complete breakdown of the disaster, for everyone to see....

(And yes I know that KD being back changes things. But videos take a long time to make and my internet didn't want me to have this uploaded before the Suns game, so here it is.)
