Dirk Nowitzki had 35 points and 11 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks used a late surge to spoil the debut of Kevin Durant's new bright orange sneakers and beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-86 Wednesday night.
Durant broke out Creamsicle orange KD2 sneakers for the first
time, and most of his teammates joined him in wearing the new Nike
shoes. But Durant, the NBA's third-leading scorer, matched his
lowest-scoring total of the season with only 12 points on 4-for-18
Erick Dampier swatted away Durant's layup try amid a 21-5 run
that put the Mavericks in control in the fourth quarter.
Reserve Josh Howard had 15 points, Shawn Marion scored 12 and
Dampier finished with 10.
Russell Westbrook led Oklahoma City with 16 points.
