The Thunder shot 1 of 10 from the field, including 0-for-3 from 3-point range and not including two missed free throws — in the final 5:07. But it took a lot more than that to make Oklahoma City's 15-point lead disappear. A look at the key moments in an epic collapse or comeback, depending on your perspective:
5:05: Kevin Durant buries a 3-pointer off Nick Collison's offensive rebound and pass to give the Thunder a 99-84 lead. Dallas calls a full timeout.
4:33: James Harden is whistled for his second foul in 15 seconds, a loose ball on Dirk Nowitzki. Harden fouls out on the play, eliminating an OKC scoring option down the threat. The Mavericks hit 3 of 4 free throws following those fouls to close to 99-87.
3:48: Jason Kidd steals the ball from Russell Westbrook and is fouled, continuing the Mavericks march to the line. Kidd hits both free throws to close to 99-89. Dallas hits 8 of 10 free throws in the final five minutes, meaning it scored eight points without a second ticking off the clock.
3:15: The Dirk barrage begins with a fall-away 13-footer from the left wing. It is the first of his four straight baskets that includes a 3-pointer.
2:32: Westbrook scores OKC's last basket of regulation and first points in two and a half minutes on a jumper to make it 101-91.
2:11: Westbrook misses two free throws.
1:25: Nowitzki spins right, then left, then right again, only to find Collison still in his face. He steps back, lofting a 5-footer off his left foot that drops to pull Dallas to 101-98.
0:39: Westbrook is called for a loose-ball foul trying to rebound his own missed 16-footer. Shawn Marion hits 1 of 2 free throws to make it 101-99.
0:18: Jason Terry rebounds Thabo Sefolosha's missed 3-pointer.
0:06: Nick Collison is whistled for holding Nowitzki with his right hand a split second before he knocks away a pass. Nowitzki hits both free throws to tie it 101-101.
0:01: Shawn Marion blocks Durant's 30-footer. Jason Kidd rebounds and calls timeout with 7-tenths of a second left. The Mavericks go for a tip-in, but Kidd's lob is tipped away.
