With former MVP Dirk Nowitzki back in the fold for the Dallas Mavericks, the team will try to snap its current three-game losing streak on Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Dallas hopes to avoid its first four-game losing streak of the season, while also avoiding going five games under .500.

The Mavs got spanked in San Antonio on Sunday, the first game back for Dirk Nowitkzi, who had eight points in 20 minutes. Dallas lost 129-91, the Mavs worst loss in quite some time.

"We need to keep on working," Nowitzki said. "We've got a lot of areas to improve. We might not be as talented as some teams on the top, but if we're not, you have to make it up with how you play and compete and it's just not there."

Oklahoma City has won six straight against the Mavs, including a sweep in the first round of last year's playoffs.
