The Oklahoma City Thunder visited the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night. The defending NBA champs were hoping that the home court advantage might help them pick up their first victory in the best-of-seven playoff series, but in the end, the Thunder had little trouble coasting to a 95-79 win. The Thunder now own a 3-0 advantage in the series and are on the verge of a sweep.
Oklahoma City put together a 50-41 lead heading into halftime and had no problem holding onto their lead. Dallas will have to win Game 4 in order to keep their season alive.
Dirk Nowitzki was the leading scorer for the Mavericks with 17 points.
