His first steal came when he picked an unsuspecting Dirk Nowitzki's pocket. It led to a breakaway dunk for Serge Ibaka.

The very next possession, Westbrook stepped in between a Jason Kidd-to-Dirk pass. The steal didn't lead to points, but it rattled the Mavericks, who didn't hit a field goal for the rest of the game.

GAME 4: NO FLY ZONE FOR THE JET

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle inserted Terry into the starting lineup, no doubt looking for a spark in a must-win game, but the JET never got off the ground. He played almost 43 minutes, more than any other Mav in the game, but he managed just 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting.

Westbrook was hounding him once again.

Considering how much Terry was on the court, holding him to 11 points on 12 shots is about as good as anyone could do.
