The Oklahoma City Thunders moved onto the second round after beating the Dallas Mavericks 118-104. After Mark Cuban disses Russell Westbrook, the Thunders' PG goes for 36pts (13/23 fgs, 3/8 3pts), 12reb and 9ast along with making sure Charlie Villanueva regret he woke up that morning.
After getting blown out in the first two games, the Portland Trailblazers came back to win two straight against the LA Clippers to tie the series up. Al-Farouq Aminu's cold streak snapped and he led the Blazers with 28pts (10/19 fgs, 6/10 3pts) and 8reb.
