Kevin Durant added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, who had lost four of their last seven games coming in.

"The last couple weeks have been choppy at times for us, but one thing you can say about our guys -- our guys compete," OKC head coach Scott Brooks said.

Shawn Marion netted 23 points to lead Dallas, which has dropped five of its last eight contests.

"I didn't think we had enough playmakers out there and we had some stupid turnovers, that always gets us in trouble," Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki said.
