Dallas under 40% from the field and under 20% from the stripe as they were led by Puerto Rico National Hoops Team PG JJ Barea's 18 points and six assists. The Thunder moves to 28-12 while the Mavs fall to 22-18.
Thunder PG Russell Westbrook had no points, eight boards and seven assists before he was ejected in the 2nd frame as he got into it with Dallas PG Barea. Thunder Rook Combo Guard Cameron Payne added 10 points and three helpers as he looked real good playing part-time filling in for Westbrook.
Can O.K.C. the clear #3 team in the west beat both the Spurs and Warriors remains to be seen. New O.K.C. Lead Man Billy Donovan is doing his thing in Thunder Alley with top assistants like Monty Williams and Mo Cheeks among others also doing their part...stay tuned!
