Oklahoma City Thunder dealt Dallas another heartbreaking loss in the NBA playoffs on Monday to take a 2-0 lead over last season’s champions in a series that is threatening to boil over.
Jason Terry’s desperate three-pointer attempt bounced off the rim as Dallas fell 102-99 to the hosts, who opened the first round series with a 99-98 win after Kevin Durant got a friendly bounce in his last-second game winner on Saturday. In the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers found their range in the second half to top the Orlando Magic 93-78 and tie their first-round series 1-1. The Pacers outscored the Magic 30-13 in the third quarter to level the series heading into game three on Wednesday in Orlando.
