The Thunder face a must-win situation tonight after coming out strangely flat and losing game 3 on Saturday. Perhaps it's youth and inexperience, or maybe it's the Russell Westbrook drama that's wearing on them but that was a poor performance for a team playing at home after tying the series at 1. Tonight's game will show a lot about the heart of the Thunder. How will they respond?

Notes:

The Thunder are 26-6 in games following a loss this season and have not lost consecutive games in the playoffs. They hope for that trend to continue tonight.

ESPN's Jeff Caplan describes the stability and leadership Jason Kidd has brought to the Mavs.

Tonight's game:

Mavs at Thunder, 6PM PDT, ESPN. Mavs lead series 2-1.
