Dirk Nowitzki tallied 32 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals as the Dallas Mavericks edged the Oklahoma City Thunder, 128-119, in overtime on Tuesday.

Nowitzki netted eight points in the fourth quarter and seven in overtime, as Dallas outscored OKC 17-8 in the extra session.

Seven Mavericks reached double figures in the triumph, with Jose Calderon hitting six 3-pointers en route to 22 points and Monta Ellis and Vince Carter posting 17 and 16 points, respectively.

Despite the loss, Kevin Durant's scoring tear continued with 43 points on 15- of-27 shooting. Durant has now scored at least 25 points in 36 consecutive games, just four shy of Michael Jordan's all-time record of 40 games.

Russell Westbrook, who missed Monday's win over Denver to rest his surgically repaired right knee, returned to the court and tallied 23 points, eight assists and seven boards. The Thunder saw their four-game winning streak come to an end.
