OKC’s Serge Ibaka had it down last night as he got 26 points and 10 rebounds and contributed to the Thunder’s 60 points in the paint against the Mavericks. Steven Adams had 11 and Perry Jones chipped in 10, but the Mavs had a small ball lineup.
Starting JJ Barea, Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis, who combined for 42 points, Dirk Nowitzki was at Center for Tyson Chandler. Monta sprained his left ankle and didn’t return to the game, so Nowtizki had to take over and ended the game with 30 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and a steal.
Russell Westbrook had a bad shooting night going 6 for 23 from the field in the 112-107 loss.
