Thunder Vs. Mavericks Score: Dirk Nowitzki On Fire, Has Dallas Up At Halftime

The Dallas Mavericks and the Oklahoma City Thunder are certainly putting a show in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, with the Mavs leading by a score of 55-48 at halftime. Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitzki have been stunning so far, with Nowitzki, in particular, dominating in the second quarter. Russell Westbrook is currently ice cold from the field, but he's getting it done from the free throw line, scoring seven points despite making just one basket from the field.

After getting absolutely dominated on the boards in the first half, Dallas picked it up and the teams are now even at 19-19 on rebounds. Nowitzki has been the star with 21 points, but the Dallas bench has been just as good, as J.J. Berea and Jason Terry have combined for 19 points. The Thunder are also getting some good production off their bench from James Harden, but Kevin Durant has been the star, scoring 17 points.
