Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins will be on the court and his usual scowling, fouling self for Game 3.

There are no penalties forthcoming against the Thunder big man who got into a dust-up with Dirk Nowitzki , the Mavericks have been told.

The incident in question was the first-quarter run-in that started with Serge Ibaka poking Nowitzki in the left eye after he canned a jump shot. He got irritated and after another jumper, he and Perkins got tangled up under the basket.
