Game 1: OKC Slaughters the Dallas Mavericks 108-70
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook
It’s not very often that two players can outscore the other team by themselves, but it’s something that Durant and Westbrook did for most of the game as OKC was up by 30 for most of the game.
At the end of the third, Durant and Westbrook combined for 47 points while the Mavericks as a team totaled 51 points. This describes the game for Dallas tonight.
They are the best 1-2 punch in the league for a reason and tonight they finished with a combined total of 47 points. Even though they both sat out for a good portion of the second half, here were their final totals:
Kevin Durant: 23 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists on 27 minutes
Russell Westbrook: 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 11 assists on 30 minutes
For Dallas, you will hear a lot about how this is just one game and you need to wipe it from your memory quick. They have to make a quick turnaround on Monday night looking to switch things up and try to steal a game in OKC.
