Shooting just 37.8 percent from the field during Saturday's loss, the Mavericks (31-41) fell to 1-2 on their current four-game homestand. "I wouldn't say I was "in tears" disappointed". Up three with time winding down and momentum heavily against them, the smart move was to foul. This was just a tough night for us. The Mavs had been trying to see what they had in Curry as an offensive initiator, as an offseason looms that might make the position the top area of need for Dallas to address. "So, we kind of got stuck between a rock and a hard place".
The win secured Oklahoma City's playoff spot for the seventh season in a row with eight games left in the regular season.
Westbrook finished with 57 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists as the Thunder rolled to a 114-106 win in overtime at Orlando's Amway Center. The Mavs successfully overcame Oklahoma City's 49-38 rebounding advantage as well by outshooting the Thunder for that game, 48.8 percent to 40.2 percent.
Oladipo has benefitted from playing off the ball in OKC and allowing Westbrook to shoulder the load of running the team. The Mavericks will now try to replicate that defensive success on Westbrook during Monday's matchup.
