Thunder Vs. Mavericks Halftime Update: Midway Through, Tied 47-47

So far, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks are playing a tight Game 4 with the two teams tied at 47 at halftime. The Thunder suffered a significant blow when they lost center Kendrick Perkins for the at least the rest of this game due to a hip injury.

Still, OKC has been competitive, outscoring the Mavericks in the first quarter 26-24 before Dallas returned the favor in the second quarter and outscored them 23-21.

Dirk Nowitzki is leading all scorers with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting, while James Harden leads the way for the Thunder with 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting. Harden also has four rebounds and a pair of assists.

NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant is also in double figures with 10 points, but still a relatively quiet first half, all things considered. Russell Westbrook has chipped in eight points for the Thunder.

OKC and Dallas are shooting identical percentages from the field (44.4).
