A lot of credit to a banged up @dallasmavs team that battled hard. Dirk is a whiner but still almost unstoppable at times. Thunder Up!!

We can beat Mavs like this, but this is losing D in Rnd 2 or 3. Gotta be sharper/more mature! Giving up 53+ to this bunch in 1/2?!#Thunder

Yes, the Warriors will play tougher in Curry's absence, but it you take away the MVP and a potential Warriors-Clippers series looks 50/50.
