Thoughts at Halftime of Thunder-Mavericks Game 2

May 19th, 2011 by Scott Dargis | Filed under Basketball, General.

-I like what I’m seeing from Westbrook tonight, he’s driving to the hole and looking to draw fouls, not take bad shots.

-So far the Thunder have found a way to contain Dirk, though he can’t be stopped at this point. His touch on the mid-range shot and foul shot is unbelievable right now.

-I’ll be purchasing the poster with Durant throwing down on Haywood. Tyson Chandler has had his share of throw downs tonight.

-The first half really had a little bit of everything. There were stretches where both teams were driving to the hole, making jump shots, and getting to the line. Overall there has been excellent ball movement and both teams are playing at a very high level right now. It is also nice to see a little bit of animosity between the two teams.

-I would love to know what Durant said to get that technical after he dunked on Haywood.

-James Harden might end up getting the headlines if Westbrook can find him in the second half.

-Durant really looks like he has taken the effort to improve his passing.

-The Thunder have figured out if they stay to their fundamentals on D that they can slow down the Mavs and make them work to get open. They are forcing the Mavs to make passes that they do not feel comfortable making and the Thunder are taking advantage of the turnovers.
