THUNDER 115 MAVERICKS 119 F...Behind Team M.F.F.L. Goat @Swish41, PARSONS in a Deep Ellum Tree, and "MISSISSIPPI Lightning" Monta the MAVS out duel the REGULATORS Report O.K.C. and RUSS of Jordan Brand!..."LOGO WATCH" from the AA 214 with CUBAN and former MAVS Star FIN-Dawg 4 sitting court side! #OKCvsDAL #ThunderUp #MavsNation #RegulatorsReportOKC

If this was a heavyweight fight it was Marvelous Marvin Hagler vs Sugar Ray Leonard as both the OKC Thunder and Dallas Mavericks went mid-April as though both were losing the series for a thriller! In the end it was the Mavs G.O.A.T. and DFW's favorite Bubble Gum "DIRK-ilicious" hitting some huge money balls coupled with Monta and Chandler doing what they are paid to do as the Mavs steal on 119-115.

O.K.C. had six players in double figures as they led 63-53 after the first two frames trying to go Drake Relays on the Mavs. Enes Kanter had 15 points and Russ Westbrook 14 points fro O.K.C. with Parsons 15 and Monta 14 for the Mavs. The Mavs knew though after the break they had to cut that lead in half or simply stay with O.K.C. to have a chance in the 4th and that is exactly what took place.

Dallas gets on their horse in the 3rd as Parsons hit a money ball with 7.2 seconds left in the 3rd tying the game at 92-92 as we head to the 4th. Mavs score 39 points in that frame to put themselves in position to grab a "W" in front of Mavs Nation at the AA 214.

The game then went nip and tuck as the Mavs took the lead at the start of the 4th 94-92 only to be deadlocked at 108-108 right at the two minute mark. Dallas would go 9 for 12 in the last two minutes from the stripe to win 119-115 as O.K.C. kept missing shots and opportunities.

Parsons led with a game-high 31 points as Monta added 24 points with Rajon Rondo going 11 points and thirteen helpers. Dirk would end the night with 22 points going 4 for 7 from deep.

O.K.C. Russ Westbrook led with 24 points and a dozen helpers with eight boards as he fouled out with under ten seconds remaining in the game. Kanter added 19 (15 in 1st half) with Mitch McGary going 12 points and thirteen boards with Dion Waiters and Steven Adams both notching 15 apiece. Those 21 O.K.C. turnovers took away from a huge rebounding advantage the Thunder had (+22 Overall/+9 Off) which should,have spelled victory!

Dallas moves to 43-25 while the Thunder falls to 37-30 and watch those NOLA Pelicans...
