Mavericks Vs. Thunder Score: Oklahoma City Holds Slim Lead After Third Quarter

The Dallas Mavericks were poised to take the lead into the fourth quarter until a late brain-cramp by Jason Terry put James Harden on the line for a chance at a four-point play. Harden converted a three, was fouled and converted the free throw to give the Oklahoma City Thunder a one-point lead through three quarters, 77-76.

Harden was the third of Oklahoma City’s scoring trio, joining Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant as the Thunder’s main offensive threats. Durant currently leads all scorers with 20 points, followed by Westbrook with 18 and Harden with 13.

Dirk Nowitzki went to sleep in the third quarter and failed to score a point. Tyson Chandler has a team-high 15 points, Jason Kidd has 13 points and Nowitzki has 13, as well. Chandler also has a team-high nine rebounds.
