The Dallas Mavericks unleashed an offensive onslaught through three quarters of a 109-86 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.

The Mavs scored 29, 30 and 32 points in first, second and third quarters, and basically cruised to victory with their bench in the fourth.

Five players reached double-figures for Dallas, led by 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting from Shawn Marion. Dirk Nowitzki scored 17 on 6-of-12 shooting. And Vince Carter added 18 off the bench.

Only three Thunder players reached double-figures, led by Kevin Durant's 30 on 8-of-20 shooting.

The Mavericks will now start an eight-game home stand as they look to solidify their spot in the Western Conference playoffs.
