The Oklahoma City Thunder came to play and followed through to the finish in the 119-108 win over the Dallas Mavericks in Game Four of the NBA Playoffs.
Enes Kanter was unstoppable, leading the team with 28 points and six rebounds, Russell Westbrook added another 25 points and 15 assists.
Despite the thunderous command OKC held throughout the game, tensions between players continued to boil, culminating in the ejection of Kevin Durant in the final minute of play for a flagrant foul on Dallas' Justin Anderson.
Durant's drama wasn't the only of the night. Earlier in the game, Anthony Morrow refused to give an out-of-bounds ball to Salah Mejri, leading to a heated confrontation between players from both teams. Westbrook and Mejri got double technicals following the bout.
Not long after Durant's ejection, Serge Ibaka got a technical for contact with Charlie Villanueva.
But no matter how testy the test, the the Thunder prevailed and now lead the series 3-1.
OKC has the chance to advance to round two with a home win on Monday.
