2012 NBA Playoffs, Thunder Vs. Mavericks Score Update: Mavs Holding Lead In OKC

The Oklahoma City Thunder are the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference and are hosting Game 1 of their Western Conference Quarterfinals series. But the Dallas Mavericks have seemed like the favorites, holding a 73-69 lead entering the fourth quarter in Oklahoma City.

Jason Terry has been hot all night, and his 20 points lead all Dallas scorers. In second? Shawn Marion with 17 points. Those two have made up for Dirk Nowitzki's relatively quiet (14 points, 5-for-13 shooting) night.

Russell Westbrook's 21 points lead all scorers, and the guard has picked up the Thunder while Kevin Durant has struggled to find his rhythm. The NBA's scoring champion has 17 points, but he has needed 19 shots to get them.
