OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Kevin Durant had 29 points and 10 rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder, helped when Dallas sat out its usual starters, beat the Mavericks 108-89 Wednesday night.
Thunder star Russell Westbrook was ejected in the second quarter after getting his second technical foul following skirmishes with J.J. Barea. Westbrook went scoreless, but had had eight assists and seven rebounds in 14 minutes.
With the Mavericks on the second night of a back-to-back after an overtime loss to Cleveland on Tuesday, Dallas coach Rick Carlisle chose not to play his five regular starters – Dirk Nowitzki, Wesley Matthews, Chandler Parsons, Deron Williams and Zaza Pachulia.
