It could be the second consecutive season for the defending NBA champion to get swept in their playoff series like we saw the LA Lakers go down in four straight a season ago. It was a huge win for OKC in game three on Thursday as the club went into Dallas and put the dagger into the Mavericks with a solid defensive performance. The Thunder held the Mavs to just 34.2% shooting from the floor and forced 16 Dallas turnovers.

Kevin Durant continued his good play in the postseason scoring 31 points by making 11 of his 15 shots in game three. Russell Westbrook had 20 points in the win as he connected on 8 of his 19 shots. The Thunder got good production from their entire roster in game three as the team had five scorers in double figures.

The Mavericks have not been able to get going offensively in this series. The team shot 43.6% in game one, 41.8% in game two and in game three a poor 34.2% shooting. After scoring 56 points combined in game one and two Mavericks leader Dirk Nowitzkie had just 17 points in the loss. Vince Carter like his entire career shows nothing in postseason with 25 points total in three games. The Mavericks starters combined for a miserable 15 for 44 from the field in defeat. The Mavs were competitive in the first two games of this series with a one point loss in game one and by three points in game two and failed to hold fourth quarter leads in each game.
