Mavericks Will Face Thunder In Western Conference Finals

The Dallas Mavericks finally know who stands between them and a trip to the 2011 NBA Finals: the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder finished off the Memphis Grizzles on Sunday afternoon, beating them easily, 105-90 in Game 7. This means that the Mavericks will be getting a heavy dose of Kevin Durant - who went off in Game 7, scoring 39 points while grabbing nine rebounds.
