There are comebacks...and then there are "COMEBACKS". Last night, what Dallas did in the 4th quarter against Oklahoma City would qualify as the "All-Caps" version.
Down 15 points in the 4th quarter, the Mavericks staged a furious comeback led by Dirk Nowitzki, who tied the game with a pair of free throws with just over 6 seconds left in the 4th quarter.
The Mavs dominated the extra period, pulling away for a 112-105 win and taking a 3-1 lead in the best of 7, Western Confernce finals series.
Kevin Durant had 29 points, Russell Westbrook 19 and 8 assists, but when it counted, nobody could stop Dirk.
Dallas has a chance to close out the series tomorrow (Wed.) night in Dallas and quite honestly, it will take a monumental effort from the young...and apparently still learning Thunder, to do anything about it.
