Dallas will try and control the tempo and slow this game down. There's no way they can run with the athletic Thunder, especially Russell Westbrook. When Dallas wins, they win games by holding teams under 100 points. The Thunder, if they win this series, will likely play the Spurs next. They'll have to be more of a half-court team to beat them so why not practice on the Mavericks?
