The Dallas Mavericks are leading the Oklahoma City Thunder by three points at the half, 51-48. The Mavericks got a boost when Delonte West was able to suit up after suffering a stomach bug over the past few days.
West has not been too productive by playing only 10 minutes with two points, but he is there on the defensive end to guard Russell Westbrook.
However, the real star for the Mavericks has been Jason Terry who leads the team with 14 points and four assists off of the bench. While Dirk Nowitzki has contributed with 10 points and Vince Carter put up seven points.
The bench play by Carter, Terry and Ian Mahinmi have combined for 25 points compared to only 10 points that the Thunder have scored off the bench which have all come by the way of James Harden and all in the second half.
The Thunder were able to cut the lead to three points when Serge Ibaka hit a three-pointer at the end of the half.
