Russell Westbrook bounced back against the Dallas Mavericks with a huge triple-double to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 122-102 win.

After shooting just 4-of-22 in yesterday's 105-103 loss to the Mavs, Westbrook responded with 32 points on 13-of-24 shooting, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and four steals for his 10th triple-double of the season.

Paul George scored 22 points on the night, while Jerami Grant finished with 16 and Nerlens Noel with 15 off the bench.

George picked up where he left off yesterday, scoring 16 first-quarter points, while the Mavs struggled out of the gates, opening the game shooting 1-of-9. The Thunder took advantage of their slow start, extending the lead to as many as 22 points in the first half, thanks to some sloppy possessions and turnovers from the Mavs.

The Thunder pressured the Mavs on defence all night, forcing 29 turnovers, the most ever by an OKC opponent.

Harrison Barnes led the way for Dallas with 25 points, knocking down seven 3-pointers on nine attempts, while Doncic finished with 17 points.
