Oklahoma City -
The Dallas Mavs lost one game at home, but bounced back to take two games on Oklahoma City. Dirk scored 48 points in game one and bounced back to score 40 points in this game to lift the Mavs to a 3-1 lead heading back to Dallas.
The Dallas Mavericks have not played in nine days, and the question was will the rest turn into rust. Tonight Dirk Nowitzki was not rusty as he dropped 48 points to lead the Mavericks to a 121-112 victory in game one.
In a statement game for both Western Conference teams, the Dallas Mavericks hosted the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night and despite delivering hard fouls that worked up the home crowd, came up short in a 97-91 battle.
