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.
