Harden, Westbrook lead Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder finished off a sweep of the Dallas Mavericks during the NBA’s shortened preseason.

James Harden had 13 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Russell Westbrook added 12 points and the Thunder beat the Mavericks for the second time in three days, winning 87-83 on Tuesday night.

Oklahoma City won 106-92 at Dallas on Sunday, although Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd didn’t play for the Mavericks in that game. Both saw action Tuesday but mostly struggled.

Jerome Randle led Dallas with 17 points while Brandan Wright had 12. Lamar Odom shot just 3-for-10 in his second outing for the Mavericks and scored eight points.

Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant, a two-time NBA scoring champ, had 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting in 21 minutes. He sat out the entire fourth quarter, as did Nowitzki and Kidd.
