Mavs lead 55-48 at the half


Dirk Nowitzki had a monster first half scoring 21 points, missing only one shot.  The rest of the Maverick starters did not contribute much from a scoring aspect.  Jason Kidd does have 5 assists and 3 rebounds. 

But once again the bench, with J.J. Barea and Jason Terry leading the way, were up to the challenge.  They provided an offense spark combining for 19 points.  Terry also has 3 fouls.  The zone defense is taking the Thunder out of their comfort zone and has helped to slow Durant, who had a big start, finishing with 17.

It was an entertaining first half.  The second half should be fun!
