OKLAHOMA CITY -

Russell Westbrook scored 24 points, Kevin Durant had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder blew out the Dallas Mavericks 112-91 Monday night while avoiding a third straight overtime game between the teams.
    
The Mavericks had tied the first two meetings this season with 3-pointers at the very end, but there was no such drama the third time around.
    
Oklahoma City led by at least 20 throughout the second half, winning for the 10th time in 11 meetings between the teams since Dallas beat the Thunder in the 2011 Western Conference finals on its way to the NBA championship. That includes a four-game sweep of the Mavs in the first round of last year's playoffs.
    
Shawn Marion was the lone bright spot for Dallas, hitting 10 of 14 shots and scoring 23 points.
