NBA Analysis

The Oklahoma City Thunder cruised to a 117-95 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal series during Tuesday’s NBA playoff action.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder with 29 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists, while Luguentz Dort did make it difficult for Luka Doncic, holding him to 19 points on 6-19 shooting with five turnovers, continuing his postseason shooting struggles, shooting 39.5% from the floor and 22.7% from beyond the arc.

“Who cares, we lost,” Doncic said. “We just gotta move on to the next one. I gotta be better, we gotta be better.”

Game 2 will be played on Thursday night in Oklahoma City, and the Mavericks will need to bring their A-game if they hope to steal homecourt advantage. Conversely, the Thunder will look to build on their convincing win and take a 2-0 lead in the series.

“We’re not going to underestimate this opponent,” Thunder coach Mark Daigneault said. “We know they’re capable of playing much better than they did tonight.”
