OKC made 3 shots in the final 10 min
Their shooting wasn't all that great the entire game. They were just getting the offensive rebounds until that last 5 minutes. OKC: 20 orb to DAL: 5 orb.
Also from the 9:02 to 5:05 in the 4th quarter, Dallas only scored 2 points whereas OKC, point flow matched what they did throughout the entire game. This tells me OKC wasn't really dominating more-so than Dallas missing shots. Then from 5:05 to the end, OKC had its drought and only scored 2 points.
A case can be made that both teams went on large droughts throughout that 4th quarter but it so happens OKC's offense went into scramble mode after Harden fouled out. I wouldn't call that a choke job more-so than missing a key player who has played well late in games and given them production at the right times during the series.
Also, in OT, it was tied with 2 minutes to go.
