Thunder Vs. Mavericks Final Score: Kevin Durant's Last Second Heroics Sink Dallas

Kevin Durant has done it again. Then again, we've said that the last three games.

If you missed it last night, Durant sank a buzzer beating three-point shot to sink the Dallas Mavericks at the final seconds to take the Oklahoma City Thunder to 4-0 overall. It was a night filled with statements about the direction of both teams as the Mavericks fell to 0-3, while the Thunder continue to roll despite recent drama surrounding the arguments between the stars Durant and point guard Russell Westbrook.

For the Thunder, this game was a statement that they could still move and stay focused enough to win. For the Mavs, it was a statement that last season was truly a magical run for a team gasping for breath and searching for answers.

Durant finished with a game-high 30 points on 10-16 shooting from the field. He also grabbed 11 rebounds and handed out six assists in the game. Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka each finished with 16 while James Harden kicked in 15 off the bench. Oklahoma City shot a sizzling 59 percent in the game but had to overcome 26 turnovers.

Dirk Nowitzki deserved a better fate finishing with 29 points and 10 rebounds. Jason Terry scored 16 points off the bench and Delonte West finished with 15.
