More: Mavs fall short against the Thunder
The Dallas Mavericks made a run late but couldn't get enough offense from its key components as they fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder 95-86.
Dallas got a great game off the bench from Jason Terry who finished with 25 points while shooting 7-10 from the field and 9-9 from the free throw line. They just didn't get much of anything else from any of the other Mavericks regulars. Shawn Marion added 12 points and 10 rebounds while Brandan Wright also chipped in 12 points. Dirk Nowitzki scored just eight points and was an uncharacteristic 2-15 from the field in the game.
Russell Westbrook finished with a game-high 33 points including a three-pointer with just 35 seconds remaining that put the lead out of reach for the Thunder. Kevin Durant added 23 points and 13 boards while James Harden chipped in 10 points off the bench.
