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

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

"It's about the Thunder and the Warriors".

"It's just a regular game for me now", he said. It was a particularly ironic response given that, earlier in that same media scrum, Durant emphasized how one of his goals last night was to "not let emotion seep in" to his performance on the court.

Do things get any better than this?

Westbrook finished with a season-high 34 points to lead the Thunder to a shocking 108-91 win and give us something to look forward to for the rest of the year in a league that has too often recently been too easy to predict. After averaging 31.6 points (24.0 field goal attempts) during the 2016-17 season en route to his first Most Valuable Player award, he is now averaging 10.7 points and 5.7 field goal attempts less through 17 games. "They brought the energy, brought the juice, brought the intelligence and we didn't bring any of that". On the court, I don't got no friends.

'Two leaves' symbol allotted to EPS-OPS faction
In contrast, only 20 MLAs (18 disqualified), and three MPs each of the two Houses had backed the group led by V.K. Chennai: Reclaiming the Two Leaves symbol, is for sure, a shot in the arm for Chief Minister Edappadi K.

Then, in the middle of the third quarter, Durant and Westbrook found themselves face-to-face after another stop in play.

"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". The oversimplified but still apt summary of this game was that the Thunder wanted it more, and the Warriors caved. 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. "We'll see how it feels in the morning but right now, it feels good".

In a game that the Thunder controlled from the start, tensions initially started to bubble up in the second quarter after a turnover on a pass intended for Durant. They only played two Warriors-like halves throughout the four games. That stuff is not real, so please don't believe it. KD wasn't shabby either, posting 21 points and five rebounds on 8-of-17 shooting. Late in the second quarter, they took care of business on their own, and National Basketball Association fans around the world were treated to the type of star-on-star drama that they've come to expect.
