NBA Western Conference Finals: Game 2
In Game 1 of the Conference Finals, Dirk Nowitzki had an amazing game with 48 points on just 15 shot attempt. Obviously, nobody expects him to repeat that performance
anytime soon. Only His Airness can do that. Game 2 was played in Dallas last night. James Harden had a big night off the bench with 23 points, and all Kevin Durant needed was 24 points. It’s much better if your superstar can kick back a bit and not have to worry about scoring 35 points, because his “supporting cast” scored lots of points. D-Rose had an off night; he couldn’t finish at the rim. He always finds a way to finish, but he was off in this game. And it seemed like the Mavs defensive intensity decreased in this game. They weren’t as aggressive as they normally are, and they weren’t getting the blocks and steals. Most people expected the Mavs to be much better in Game 2. However, they were sloppy and their shots weren’t falling. All this led to a 106-100 victory for the Thunder. Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday night at the Oklahoma City Arena.
