Game Over! Thunder 131 Mavs 102 #News9Thunder

Optimistic analysis: OKC drills Dallas in 2 games. And if KD shoots just 40% & not 6 of 33, OKC would've won Game 2 by 12 pts. #News9Thunder

I predicted a 15 point win for the @okcthunder in game 3 vs. @dallasmavs. Let's see if they can double that. #OKCvsDAL #Thunder #Mavericks

Just pouring it on, sending a message to Mavs? #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 22, 2016

In a game this chippy, the obvious question is why are the OKC starters still out there? #News9Thunder

Thunder 97 Mavs 78 after three, KD-31pts, his playoff average is 28. #News9Thunder

97 points after 3 quarters. Hard to believe this is the same Thunder team from Game 2. #News9Thunder

Welcome to the rip move Mr Harris. Keep your hands to yourself!

Love KD-however, it seems it would be in the best interest of the offense for him to swing the ball. Occasionally. He shoots on most touches

Phantom foul on Enes, Harris slipped on court. #News9Thunder

Russ with a pair of 3's, Thunder up 16 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 22, 2016

Perhaps Mav shenanigans -- from anti-sock hop to excessive whining, will get OKC's attention. All I know for sure is the need to separate.

Dirk with words to Roberson. #News9Thunder

On pace to give up 100 to this beleaguered Dallas bunch, that is NOT championship D.. Not even close. #ThunderMavs

— Kelly (@kellyogle) April 22, 2016

Mavs back to within 10 and the crowd comes alive again. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 22, 2016

Double T is a cop out!!

— Kelly (@kellyogle) April 22, 2016

Durant with the elbow on the free throw. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 22, 2016

I want to see the Thunder play some shutdown D, this Dallas team should not score 90 on us. #ThunderUp

— Kelly (@kellyogle) April 22, 2016

Thunder 58 Mavs 48 Half #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 22, 2016

Ouch! KD picks up third foul with 4 secs left in half. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 22, 2016

OKC shooting 6/7 in 2nd quarter, OKC up 14 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 21, 2016

If Russ & Thunder don't play better D they'll be in trouble as soon as OKC cools off. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 21, 2016

KD feeling it, demanding the ball and scoring, up to 16pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 21, 2016

Thunder 27 Mavs 21 after one, Durant-9pts 4/6 shooting #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 21, 2016

Hello Dion! #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 21, 2016

OKC 5/8 early, more importantly KD is 2/3 shooting #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 21, 2016

My prediction in #OKCvsDAL Game 3: @okcthunder by 15.

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) April 21, 2016

Carlisle: less likely Williams plays, more likely Barea plays, Lee is up in the air. #News9Thunder
