Josh Richardson put up 16 points (5-14 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go along with six rebounds, four steals, and one assist over 35 minutes in the Mavericks 87-78 win over the Thunder on Wednesday.
Despite the poor three-point shooting (1-for-8), Richardson played a solid game for the Mavs. He picked up a season-high four steals, which proved to be huge in this poor-shooting slugfest. Dallas was able to do just enough, while missing superstar Luka Doncic, to pull off their third win a row. They head into the All Stat break with a 18-16 record and claiming the 8th seed in the Western Conference. J-Rich had a letdown of a first half, though, only averaging 12.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.6 assists while shooting a career-low 29.8-percent from three.
