Thunder vs Mavericks: Game Four: Thunder win series 4-0
Dirk Nowitzki did all he could to halt it, but the steam roller that has OKC printed on the side continued as the Dallas Mavericks were swept by the Thunder. Dirk had 34 in his final playoff outing of the year, while Jason Terry, handed the start, had 11 points. Veteran point guard and now free agent Jason Kidd added 16, but none of them could stop the youthful opposing outfit.
Kevin Durant had 24 points in his usual easy and seemingle inevitable manner, but it was “reserve” guard James Harden who put on the show, with 15 of his 28 points coming in the final period to help close out the game for the Thunder and snuff out any chance of a Mavs comeback.
“We didn’t crumble. I think that’s the best part of our team. We’ve grown in that area. We never gave up.”
— Durant on the fourth-quarter rally.
