TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Russell Westbrook, playing parts of the first and third quarters, scored 19 points in 20 minutes to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 100-88 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night at the BOK Center.

Enes Kanter came off the bench to score 17 points and grab 11 rebounds before a sellout crowd, helping Oklahoma City treat a sellout crowd of 17,978.

John Jenkins, a free-agent signee, scored 26 points for Dallas on 11-of-18 shooting.

MAVERICKS: Center Zaza Pachulia, acquired in July from Milwaukee for a second-round pick, had 13 points, all in the first half. Rookie Justin Anderson from Virginia had 11 points. … The Mavs left six players home with injuries, including Chandler Parsons and Deron Williams. Dirk Nowitzki remained in Dallas to rest.

THUNDER: Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow added 10 points, while rookie guard Cameron Payne impressed with eight points with two assists in eight minutes. The Thunder outscored the injury-depleted Mavericks 25-14 in the fourth quarter.

STAR WATCH: Kevin Durant scored 10 points and showed no effects from his foot injury that kept him out of 55 games last season, though he shot just 4 of 12.

SURPRISING STATS: Jenkins has scored 61 points in the Mavs’ last three preseason games.

UP NEXT: Dallas is home against Atlanta on Friday. The Thunder are at Memphis on Friday.
