The Mavericks made all the necessary adjustments to steal Game 2 from Oklahoma City on Thursday night and now have a pivotal swing game in their building.

Luka Doncic bounced back in a major way, putting up a 29-point, 10-rebound double-double that featured seven assists. P.J. Washington caught fire from deep, knocking down seven triples on his way to a playoff career-high 29 points. He also tallied a double-double by securing 11 boards.

Oklahoma City suffered its first loss this postseason, largely because it lost the 3-point battle, only knocking down 10 while Dallas converted 18 times from beyond the arc. It was the lowest amount of makes for OKC since making 10 in Game 1 last series against the Pelicans. 

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 33 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists, but the overall team production from Game 1 wasn’t there. The only other players to reach double figures in the scoring column were Jalen Williams (20) and Chet Holmgren (11).

How will this young Thunder core respond to playing with their backs against the wall in the postseason for the first time?
