Mavericks vs. Thunder score: Luka Doncic, P.J. Washington and Dallas win Game 3

The Dallas Mavericks took the lead in their playoff series against the top-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder thanks to a 105-101 Game 3 win on Saturday afternoon. The Mavs have handed the Thunder their first two losses of the postseason in back-to-back games to take a 2-1 series lead.

P.J. Washington once again had a big game offensively for Dallas, scoring a team-high 27 points and hitting five 3-pointers. Luka Doncic, who was originally listed as questionable for the game with knee and ankle injuries, had 22 points, while Kyrie Irving came alive in the second half to finish with 22 points and 15 rebounds.

The Thunder stormed out to a 10-point lead with a big run to start the third quarter, but couldn’t fend off the Mavs. OKC got a game-high 31 points from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Jalen Williams had 16 points around an ankle injury, but no other Thunder player scored more than 13 and OKC was out-rebounded 60-48.
