It certainly wasn't as fun to watch as games 1 and 2. There were a lot of missed shots, a lot of "No-calls" and just general clunkiness.
But, the Dallas Mavericks, despite almost choking away a lead that at one point was 23, managed to hold off the Oklahoma City Thunder 93-87 and take a 2-1 lead in their best of 7, NBA Western Conference Finals series.
Dirk Nowitzki could only manage 18 points on 7-21 shooting, but Tyson Chandler grabbed 15 rebounds and Shawn Marion also scored 18 to lead the Mavericks. Russell Westbrook found his floundering game...a little and led the 36.5 % shooting Thunder with 30 points.
Game 4 is Monday night in Oklahoma City.
