Warriors/Thunder Open Thread (Warriors 91, Thunder 108)

For what it's worth, the Thunder beat the suddenly human-seeming Warriors, with Westbrook taking the crown in the individual battle he had against Durant.

Owing to travel, I was able to just catch some of the first half and glimpses of the second half of the game, but what I saw was pretty subpar basketball from the Dubs.

Westbrook, who usually is animated anyway, was more talkative on the court than usual.

The two jawed at each other during their previous encounter in Oklahoma City past year and continued their feud on this occasion as things got heated. "I don't know", Durant said when asked if he'll be able to play. This time around however, Westbrook had a season-high 34 points, finished one assist shy of a triple double and the Thunder picked up a 108-91 win. And real passion is great for the game. "They brought the energy, brought the juice, brought the intelligence and we didn't bring any of that".




"I go out and compete, I got out and play at a high level, like I've been saying since Day One and that's what I did". Teammates for eight seasons in Oklahoma City, the two still have not spoken since Durant left for the Warriors in the summer of 2016 - outside of the basketball court, of course.

Durant told Bleacher Report ahead of the game that he believed Westbrook would check on him if he were laying on his death bed, and that's probably true. "We'll see how it feels in the morning but right now, it feels good".

The Thunder snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Warriors that dated back to the playoffs in May 2016, when Durant was still with OKC. "I'm expecting it again when we play 'em again, but it's all fun and games". Then they play the Kings on Monday before starting a six-game road trip in Los Angeles next week. It's not about who's in each other's faces.

The crowed chanted "cupcake" all evening, and Durant even engaged in a verbal exchange with Russell Westbrook. "All the fans, they're lying to you all".
