Analysis

The Mavericks let Game 4 slip away thanks to missed free throws from Luka Doncic and P.J. Washington in the final ten seconds. As a team, Dallas shot just 52-percent from the free throw line and the two teams combined to shoot just 39-percent from the floor. Doncic did rack up a triple-double but shot just 6-of-20 from the floor while scoring 18 points as Kyrie Iriving scored just nine points in 41 minutes on 4-of-11 shooting. This was the second time that Irving has scored single-digits in this series, which can’t continue if Dallas has any shot at advancing. Washington led the team in scoring for the third-straight game with 21 points, and if it wasn’t for his increase in offensive productivity this series, Dallas may have been swept by now. Four Thunder starters played 40+ minutes led by Shai Gilgous-Alexander with 34 points on 14-of-27 shooting as the team made the most of their trips to the free throw line, going 23-of-24 from the stripe. OKC does have a stout defense, but Dallas has either won or kept it within four points in three-straight games, including a 119-110 win at Oklahoma City in Game 2. Doncic and Irving need to provide an offensive burst for the Mavericks, and we believe we'll see it on Wednesday night.
