The first quarter was all about the Dallas Mavericks, but in the second the Oklahoma City Thunder exacted revenge. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook worked in tandem to reel-in the Mavericks and take a two-point halftime lead, 59-57.
Dirk Nowitzki is still a force to be reckoned with, though his scoring is down compared to Game 1. Nowitzi pushed his streak of made free throws to 38 in the playoffs thus far and has a team-high 13 points, seven of which came from the line. Tyson Chandler is also in double-figures with 11 points.
Durant leads all scorers through the first 24 minutes with 16 points on 7-12 shooting. Westbrook is right behind with 12 points, three rebounds and three assists. James Harden has nine points off the bunch thus far.
