Oklahoma City Thunder thrashed the Dallas Mavericks to kick-start their NBA playoff in devastating fashion.

The home side blasted out of the game one blocks with Kevin Durant, Russel Westbrook and Serge Ibaka dominating proceedings.

The Thunder ended the first half 26-11 up.

Dirk Nowitzki tried to pull Dallas back into the game but to no avail as by halftime the gap between the two teams was a massive 26 points in favour of the hosts.

Westbrook and Durant continued to punish a lacklustre Mavericks side as the Thunder produced their most dominant postseason performance since moving to Oklahoma City in 2008 from Seattle.

Westbrook finished with a game-high 24 points while Durant added 23 as the Thunder demolished the Mavs 108-70.

The best-of-seven series stays in Oklahoma for games two on Monday.
