DALLAS -- The clock shows 6:54 left in the first quarter and the Mavs have not hit a field goal, going 0-4. They're fortunate to be down just 12-6.
Drew Gooden just clanked another, make it 0-of-5.
And there it is, Josh Howard inside with 6:06 to go in the first quarter gets the Mavs' first FG. The Thunder is just 5-of-12 from the floor and lead 12-8.
But, yet again, it's another slow start for the Mavs on their home floor.
