Going head-to-head, Russell Westbrook rules as KD's return a big loss

F Kevin Durant's status for Wednesday's game against his former team in Oklahoma City is uncertain as he recovers from a sprained left ankle.

"It's just great to get a win", Westbrook said. The Warriors are scoring 117.88 points per contest on average (1st in the NBA), while they are allowing 107.47 points in return (21st in the NBA). The Warriors were set to get the ball back, when Durant instead crept toward Westbrook, and began running his mouth. "They brought the energy, brought the juice, brought the intelligence and we didn't bring any of that". I go out and play at a high level. On the flip side, the Thunder triumvirate of Westbrook, Anthony, and George was magnificent, and the Thunder bench didn't hemorrhage points, a pretty shocking development considering the Thunder basically couldn't rest Westbrook last season for fear of coughing up big leads.

So Thunder General Manager Sam Presti went out and pulled off two stunning trades - landing George on the eve of free agency, and then Anthony on the eve of training camp.

The Warriors are 7-10 against the spread (4-5 away), while they are 9-7-1 on over/under (5-3-1 away), and considering their high-flying offense that scored 242 points in the past two matches; this one could produce more than 225 points.


In the third quarter, tempers flared even more.

Thunder: Westbrook had 11 points, five rebounds and five assists in the first quarter. Golden State is the best team in the league when it comes to field goal percentage (51.48%) and three-point percentage (40.38%), while they are among the best ten teams (8th) in rebounding (45.76). "Or maybe, as Westbrook would attest, it doesn't matter much because the trends will either solve themselves or continue independent of one November evening".

"The story is about the game". "We'll see how it feels in the morning but right now, it feels good". It's not about who was in each other's faces. That stuff is not real, so please don't believe it. "It's about basketball, and they played a great game, and we didn't". All the fans, they lying to you all. The wins have been by an average of 17.8 points.

Thunder: Host the Detroit Pistons on Friday.
