Game one of this best of seven series opened up in Oklahoma City and it went right down to the wire as Thunder All Star Kevin Durant hit the jumper via help from a friendly roll to overcome a one point deficit and give his team the 99-98 win as a -7 ½ point home favorite. With no timeouts and very little time left on the clock the Dallas counter attack was a desperate measure and failed.
One thing bettors can take from game one is the fact the Dallas Mavericks were able to match the intensity on the court of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Mavericks the NBA champions of a year ago showed great poise on the court and will prove to be a tough out in this series. In their Western Conference Finals playoff series a year ago Dallas beat Oklahoma City in five games and won both games played at Oklahoma City.
Saturday marked the second time this season that Oklahoma City needed a buzzer beating shot from Kevin Durant to beat the Mavericks as they accomplished this feat back in a regular season game played at OKC on December 29th.
Dallas is trending well on the Oklahoma City home court. The Mavericks have now covered the pointspread in five straight of their head to head meetings played at OKC. In the three games between these clubs played at Oklahoma City the margin of victory by the Thunder has been no greater than four points.
