Thunder at Mavericks

7 p.m. Tuesday, American Airlines Center, Dallas

TV: TNT

Radio: ESPN/103.3 FM, KFLC/1270 AM (Spanish)

Records: Thunder 52-18; Mavericks 42-29

About the Thunder: They are riding a four-game winning streak, with three of the wins coming on the road. ... Kevin Durant averaged 40.3 points and 11.7 rebounds in those three road wins, including a 51-point outburst in a double overtime win at Toronto. Durant’s 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds remaining was the game-winning basket. ... Point guard Russell Westbrook left the Toronto game with a sprained right knee, the same knee he’s had surgically repaired three times within the past year. But an MRI exam revealed that Westbrook’s knee is fine. He didn’t play in Monday’s win over Denver but he is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday. .... OKC has the NBA’s second-best road record at 23-11. ... OKC’s 6.5-plus point differential ranks third in the league.

About the Mavs: With untimely losses at home, Dallas is in danger of not making the playoffs for the second consecutive season. ... The Mavs are tied with Phoenix for the final Western Conference playoff spot. ... The Mavs blew a 14-point lead Sunday and lost to the Brooklyn Nets 107-104 in overtime. Dallas also lost at home in overtime Wednesday to Minnesota, 123-122. ... Dirk Nowitzki made a season-low two field goals — in 12 attempts — while shooting a season-low 16.7 percent (2-of-12) from the field against the Nets. ... The Mavs are 1-1 against the Thunder this season, and both games were played in Oklahoma City. They lost to OKC 107-93 on Nov. 6, but beat the Thunder 109-86 on March 16. It was the worst loss of the season for OKC, which played without Russell Westbrook. ... The Mavs are 2-2 on their eight-game homestand. — Dwain Price
