Oklahoma City Thunder dealt Dallas another heartbreaking loss in the NBA playoffs on April 30 to take a 2-0 lead over last season’s champions in a series that is threatening to boil over.

Jason Terry’s desperation three-pointer attempt bounced off the rim as Dallas fell 102-99 to the hosts, who opened the first round series with a 99-98 win after Kevin Durant got a friendly bounce in his last-second game winner on Saturday.

The Mavericks must regroup before the best-of-seven Western Conference series continues in Dallas tomorrow.

In the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers found their range in the second half to top the Orlando Magic 93-78 and tie their first-round series 1-1.

Meanwhile, Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points but his New York Knicks came up short as Miami’s ‘Big Three’ took charge to lead the Heat to a 104-94 victory.

Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 25 points, Chris Bosh made 21 and LeBron James had 19 plus seven rebounds and nine assists as Miami grabbed a 2-0 lead in the series.
