Three things to know
• Dallas forward Luka Doncic, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 draft, is leading all rookies in points per game (20.2) while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 40.3 percent from 3-point range.
• The Thunder’s lineup of Dennis Schroder, Terrance Ferguson, Paul George, Jerami Grant and Steven Adams is allowing just 85.7 points per 100 possessions, third in the NBA (min. 50 minutes played).
• Two of the Thunder’s 15 losses to sub-.500 teams last season came against Dallas.
