Thunder Vs. Mavericks Score: Oklahoma City Leads After One Quarter

Kevin Durant is absolutely on fire right now, and his 13 points in the first quarter have the Oklahoma City Thunder up by a score of 27-20 on the Dallas Mavericks. Durant is shooting a perfect 5-5 from the field, 1-1 from three point land, and 2-2 from the free throw line. Quite simply, it's been a masterful performance thus far.

As great as Durant has been, Dirk Nowitzki has almost matched him. The Mavs' best player is shooting 4-4 from the field and 2-2 from the free throw line - pure perfection just like Durant - and he's sitting on 10 points. Unfortunately, he's not getting quite as much help from his teammates as Durant is. The Thunder's other players aren't doing much offensively, but they're absolutely destroying the Mavs on the boards, out-rebounding them by seven in just one quarter. If the Mavs are going to win this game, Tyson Chandler, in particular, needs to do a better job on the boards.
