OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.
DALLAS: GUARDS: DARREN COLLISON's jump shot might be shaky, but he can get into the lane at will. He'll be a much different look than Jason Kidd had been in Big D . . . O.J. MAYO becomes the second option in this offense. He'll have the ball in his hands a lot . . . VINCE CARTER will come off the bench. At this point, he's a three-point specialist, and not a very good one . . . DELONTE WEST will back up both guard spots. Don't be surprised if he overtakes Collison at some point . . . RODDY BEAUBOIS can heat up in an instant, but he has work to do to make this rotation . . . DAHNTAY JONES is roster filler . . . DOMINIQUE JONES enters the year on the roster bubble . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM will learn the point guard position watching from the bench as a rookie. FORWARDS: After a slow start last season, DIRK NOWITZKI looked like the Dirk of old in the second half of the year. He's still got something left in the tank, but it's still unclear if the swelling in his knee will require surgery, something that would shelve him for more than a month . . . SHAWN MARION is still an important cog in Carlisle's creative defensive gameplans, so he'll keep playing big minutes despite his dwindling offensive skills . . . ELTON BRAND is still relevant, even behind Nowitzki, because of his ability to play some center . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT will be in and out of the rotation again, but he's now relatively healthy and showed signs of being a serviceable rotation player a year ago . . . Rookie Jae CROWDER profiles as a potentially solid second-unit player, but he'll be buried on this depth chart. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN gives Dallas some offensive skill at center, but he's not exactly the defensive presence they've needed. He'll log the bulk of the minutes here, but there are going to be a handful of games where the Mavs have to sit him and go small for defensive purposes . . . 27-year-old rookie BERNARD JAMES could fill Ian Mahinmi's old role of a shot-blocker/fouler off the bench.

(EDITS eighth graf)

*Thunder-Mavericks Preview* ===========================

Oklahoma City (31-8) at Dallas (17-23), 9:30 p.m. EDT

Russell Westbrook looks far more confident lately than he did the last time the Oklahoma City Thunder visited Dallas.

The red-hot Westbrook will try to help the Thunder notch a sixth straight victory Friday night when they face the Mavericks on the road for the first time since last season's playoffs.

Two of Westbrook's five highest-scoring efforts have come in his last five games. He had a season-high 36 points in a 102-90 victory at Phoenix on Monday and 32 in a 117-97 home win over Denver on Wednesday.

"I come into the game confident, honestly, and I just come out and take the shots that's given to me," Westbrook said.

Westbrook's play is impressing teammate and Western Conference scoring leader Kevin Durant, who's averaging 32.4 points during the win streak.

"What can you do?" Durant said. "He's shooting the jump shot. If you pressure him, then he goes to the rim. It's like a nightmare when he's making that jump shot."

Oklahoma City (31-8) will play at Dallas (17-23) for the first time since completing a first-round playoff sweep there May 5.

Westbrook struggled in the two contests at the American Airlines Center, averaging 16.0 points and 35.5 percent shooting in the two contests. He scored 23.8 points a contest in the other 18 playoff games last year.

Westbrook came through the last time he faced the Mavericks with eight of his 16 points in the overtime of a 111-105 home victory Dec. 27. He redeemed himself after struggling to contain former UCLA teammate Darren Collison, who scored a season-high 32 points for Dallas including a 3-pointer that sent the game to OT.

Collison knows what to expect Friday.

"It's going to be a good game," he said. "Westbrook and Durant, they're very good players, we already know what they can do. They're going to be talented and explosive on the offensive end."

The Thunder have won seven straight meetings with the Mavericks including playoffs.

Durant scored 40 points in the first meeting while Dirk Nowitzki came off the bench for nine and shot 3 of 11 in his second game since returning from knee surgery.

Nowitzki is back in the starting lineup now, and he's regaining his past form in helping Dallas win a season-high four straight. He had 19 points and eight rebounds in a 105-100 home victory over Houston on Wednesday, and said his confidence is improving.

"I had some good looks," Nowitzki said. "That 3 at the end of the third helped me get my rhythm. Sometimes all you need is to see the ball go through the hoop one time."

The Mavs are trying to complete a perfect four-game homestand after holding their first three opponents to averages of 93.7 points and 39.5 percent shooting. The Thunder average 105.4 points and 47.9 percent.

"We're going to have our hands full," Collison said. "The most important thing is that we've got to be tied in like we have been."

The Thunder shoot a league-best 83.6 percent at the foul line while the Mavs yield an average of 26.1 attempts for the second-worst mark in the NBA.
