OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Monta Ellis scored 26 points, and the Dallas Mavericks withstood a triple-double from Russell Westbrook to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 135-131 on Wednesday night.

Westbrook finished with 31 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. It was his 10th triple-double of the season, the 17th of his career and his eighth since the All-Star break.

Anthony Morrow scored 32 points and Enes Kanter added a career-high 30 points and 16 rebounds for the Thunder. According to STATS, it was the first time a team had three players score at least 30 points in a game since Westbrook, Kevin Durant and James Harden did it for Oklahoma City on March 7, 2012.

Dallas shot 61.5 percent from the field, the highest percentage Oklahoma City has allowed this season.
