It was a close game and in keeping with game 1, very exciting to watch. The Oklahoma City Thunder took game 2 of the NBA Western Conference finals Thursday night with a 106-100 win over the Dallas Mavericks, in Dallas.
As usual, Kevin Durant led the way with 24 points, but it was the Thunder's bench that truly won the game. Backup guard James Harden had 23 and the other backup guard, Eric Maynor chipped in 13, as the bench guys did the dirty work, hounding Mavs snipers Jason Terry and J.J Barea.
The series, which we fully expect to go seven games, moves up the highway 3-hours or so to Oklahoma City on Saturday night (hmmm...wonder why they don't get 5-days off like the Bulls and Heat).
