Dallas at Oklahoma free pick
It’s now or never for Oklahoma City tonight, Down 2-1 in the series, they need a big win to get some momentum for the next game.
After claiming home-court advantage with a win in Dallas in Game 2, the Thunder got flattened in the first quarter of Game 3 and gave it right back. They fell into a humbling 23-point hole in the first 14 minutes on their home floor, and never could climb their way out of it.
After yielding only 88.3 points per game through the first two rounds, Dallas had allowed the Thunder to average 109 in the first two games. Coach Rick Carlisle said he thought the Mavs might have gotten out of their defensive habits because of Oklahoma City’s transition-based, perimeter-oriented offense.
One thing Thunders need to do tonight is to be more agressive. In Game 4, Brooks wants Durant and the rest of the Thunder to get aggressive from the start.
“We’re really good when we go at you and make things happen and don’t wait for it to happen,” Brooks said. “I’m anticipating our guys will come out with that type of mindset, going in and attacking and making it happen and don’t wait for it to happen.“
