Mavs Narrowly Beat Thunder 99-98

The Mavericks broke their 2-game home losing streak last night with a narrow win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder have lost nine straight to Dallas and with this loss brings the record to 2-17 between the teams. Kevin Durant, a UT Austin alum, recorded a 30 point and 13 rebound double-double in the loss. Dirk Nowitzki posted is 11th 30-point game of the season with 32 points for the night. Overall, a good game by the Mavs but it never needed to be as close as it was.
