Dirk outduels Durant; Mavericks cruise past Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- In a nationally televised battle between superstars, Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki had one of his better games, scoring 35 points and grabbing 11 rebounds while Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant had one of his worst, scoring just 12 points and committing four turnovers.

"Dirk's our guy," said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. "He's our franchise player and he played like it tonight."

Those totals, combined with a 21-5 Mavs run late in the fourth quarter, added up to a 100-86 win for Dallas (19-7) over the Thunder (12-12) inside a sold-out Ford Center.

Nowitzki scored his 35 points on 13-for-18 shooting. Josh Howard came off the bench to add 15 points and Shawn Marion put in 12. Jason Kidd only had six but they came on two big 3-pointers in the second half.

"Last year we were really good on offense so in training camp we worked on our defense," Nowitzki said. "And tonight I thought we played well on defense in the second half."

The Dallas defense held Oklahoma City to just 38 points in the second half while the Mavericks' offense scored 57 points. The Southwest Division-leading Mavericks especially clamped down on defense in the fourth quarter, limiting the Thunder to just 31.8 percent shooting.

Meanwhile, Dallas' shooters hit half their shots, including 2-for-3 on clutch 3-pointers, and Nowitzki had 13 in the final quarter.

"I thought I really found my rhythm two days ago," Nowitzki said. "I have been double-teamed a lot and I wanted to make sure I started off good. We used the pick and roll and I was able to roll down and get some shots up. It felt good early so I carried it on from there."

It proved to be a deadly combination for the young Thunder, who have now lost three straight, all to division leaders.

"I've said all along we're gonna have some ups and downs," Thunder coach Scott Brooks told reporters after the game, "and we're in a rut right now."

The Thunder have struggled to hit shots lately, shooting no more than 42 percent in the last five games. Wednesday night Durant was just 4-for-18 and though point guard Russell Westbrook led OKC with 16 points, he was just 6-for-19 from the field. Jeff Green had 15 points but none in the fourth quarter. Rookie James Harden came off the bench to score 12.

"Kevin missed some shots tonight and Russell missed some easy shots tonight." Brooks said. "I thought most of them were good shots, they just didn't go in."

"I thought I had some good looks," a dejected Durant said in the Thunder dressing room. "We just have to get better. Give Dallas credit, they played a great game."

The Mavericks struggled with the Thunder in all three games the teams played last year and lost the one in Oklahoma City.

"So we knew what we were getting into tonight," Carlisle said. "This was a very big game for them and they're a team that is capable of beating you, especially in this building."

Durant debuted a new orange Nike shoe that each of his teammates wore, and everyone in the crowd waved orange rally rags. The wild atmosphere in the building wasn't enough to overcome bad shooting from the Thunder and stout defense from the Mavericks at the end.

Dallas led twice in the very early going before Oklahoma City jumped out to a 15-6 lead before the Mavericks reeled them back in to tie the game at 24 by the end of the first quarter.

The Thunder jumped on Dallas in the second quarter, going on a 5-0 run to gain a lead they would not give back in the first half.

Oklahoma City's scoring was very balanced in the first half with Green leading the way with nine points, Westbrook had eight and Durant and Thabo Sefolosha each scored seven.

The Mavericks were led by Nowitzki's 11 points, Shawn Marion added 10. Point guard Kidd was held scoreless but he contributed six assists in the half.

Mavericks guard J.J. Barea, who in his last four starts had averaged 9.5 points in the opening quarter, managed only three in that time span Wednesday night.

Coming into the game, Durant had put together a string of nine straight games in which he'd scored at least 25 points, but that streak ended Wednesday night.
