Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : April 18th 2016 Contents Dallas scored its fewest points ever
in a playoff game, and its .298 field-
goal percentage was the worst ever
in a postseason game for a franchise
that has existed since 1980.
Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks
with 18 points. Game 2 will be today
in Oklahoma City.
Atlanta s Jeff Teague stymied
another big Boston comeback, taking
matters into his own hands in the
closing minutes to lead the Hawks
to a 102-101 win. Teague scored 23
points and doled out 12 assists, mak-
ing sure Atlanta maintained the
home-court edge after the gritty
Celtics rallied from a 19-point deficit.
With the game tied 88--88, Teague
worked the pick-and-roll to set up
a layup for Al Horford. The Celtics
missed and the Hawks again got the
ball to Teague, who found Paul Mill-
sap alone under the basket for a dunk
that pushed Atlanta to a 92-88 lead
with 2:56 remaining.
The Celtics had a chance to tie in
the final minute, but Evan Turner
missed an open 3-pointer.
Game 2 in the best-of-seven series
is tomorrow in Atlanta

On the opening day of playoffs, Indiana s Paul
George led the Pacers to victory at Toronto, Oklahoma
City routed Dallas, and Atlanta clung on to beat
Boston by a point.
The Warriors topped the Michael Jordan-led Bulls
of 1995-96, then immediately made one thing clear:
that mark will mean nothing if they don t bring home
back-to-back titles to the East Bay.
James Harden scored 17 points for cold-shooting
Houston, held to six field goals in the first quarter
of the rematch from last year s Western Conference

Oklahoma City dominated Dallas in a 108-70 vic-
Russell Westbrook had 24 points and 11 assists
while Kevin Durant added 23 points for the Thunder,

franchise has conceded in a postseason game.
