The Oklahoma City Thunder finally are healthy, and they’re looking to get back to doing what they do best: wreaking havoc in the Western Conference playoffs.

The Thunder stormed onto the playoff scene with the tandem of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in 2010, taking two games from the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers. They followed that performance with three trips to the Western Conference Finals in the next four years, including an appearance in the NBA Finals in 2012. But injuries have derailed their ultimate goals for the past few seasons, and the team missed the playoffs altogether in 2015.

Now, their redemption tour officially begins with a Dallas Mavericks team that limped its way into the postseason and doesn’t stand much hope of winning another game, let alone the series.

ESPN is streaming the game online and through its app. Here’s how to watch Game 1 of Thunder vs. Mavericks:
