  • Watch: Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant Get In Heated Exchange During Third Quarter

Gone are the days when the Thunder and Warriors would step on the court with Golden State holding a massive talent advantage. "They brought the energy, brought the juice, brought the intelligence and we didn't bring any of that".

The Golden State Warriors let the game get away from them early, and it would not get any better as their poor shot selection and constant turnovers spelled their demise against a Thunder team that fired from all cylinders.

Durant is nursing a sprained left ankle, and is listed as questionable for tonight's battle against the Thunder. We, the media, always speculate and wonder about the relationship between the two stars. And since then? Warriors forward Draymond Green summed up, "he's just not anxious about all the other stuff". Even though Green failed fantasy owners in the points department, he at least contributed everywhere else.

Over the summer, Durant bashed his former teammates and coach Billy Donovan when he accidentally tweeted from his verified account, "he didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan".

Kerr, lightheartedly, broke down his team's issues afterwards.

CBS News fires Charlie Rose
Kelly confirmed this in Settle for More , which detailed his alleged inappropriate behavior. Rose since been fired by CBS and suspended from PBS and Bloomberg broadcast.

"I play the same way every night if it's against Kevin or if it's against Detroit", he said.

Warriors: Klay Thompson scored just nine points. C Steven Adams had 14 points and 12 rebounds. Their defense is also among the top five (3rd) in limiting the opponents from the field (43.23%) and in the 7th position in defending the perimeter (34.17%).

In Oklahoma City's thorough 108-91 victory over the Warriors at Chesapeake Energy Arena, he certainly looked like he wanted to prove a point. We lost. They kicked our a-. Paul George led Oklahoma with 26 points, five rebounds, four dimes, and tied the season-high with five thefts, while Russell Westbrook posted his fifth triple-double of the season with 22 points, 16 boards, and 12 dishes, adding three steals to his name.

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. Anthony will have more problems in a clash with Green, so Westbrook's performance could be vital on this one.
