OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A putback at the buzzer by Oklahoma City's Steven Adams that would have won the game was disallowed upon review, and the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Thunder 85-84 on Monday night to even their Western Conference playoff series at one win apiece.

Dallas had been embarrassed 108-70 in the opener on Saturday, but the Mavericks bounced back and held Oklahoma City to 33.7 percent shooting on Monday.

Raymond Felton scored 21 points and Dirk Nowitzki added 17 for the Mavericks. Deron Williams, declared doubtful on Sunday with a left abdominal strain, scored 13 points, 11 in the game's first 5 minutes.

Kevin Durant scored 21 points for Oklahoma City, but he made just 7 of 33 shots in one of the worst postseason shooting performances of his career.

Game 3 is Thursday in Dallas.
