Warriors star Durant says he will play against Thunder
Nov 24 2017
Durant could be seen leaning in and calling Westbrook a pussy during that altercation. He appeared very animated throughout the game and yelled loudly at the crowd after any sort of interaction with the Warriors small forward.
Durant: "The story's about the game".
After a potential steal from Russell Westbrook on Kevin Durant went out of bounds, the former teammates had a bit of a conversation together, resulting in the two literally butting heads and having to be pulled apart from each other. Last season, Oklahoma City got trounced the four times it played Golden State, looking as if it had no business being on the same court with the Warriors.
Durant's Warriors have jumped out to a 13-4 start to the season behind 24.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game from the 2017 Finals MVP.
Kevin Durant will be a game-time decision with an ankle injury.
Westbrook on the other hand described the incidents as him letting Durant know he is "coming at your neck every single night".
"I'm done trying to convince people that I love being here, I love playing basketball here, I love growing as a basketball player and a person", Durant told reporters. "They brought the energy, they brought the juice, they brought the intelligence and we didn't bring any of that". "They've been playing at a high level in their careers all throughout". All that aside, KD is claiming that his supposed beef with Russ "is not real, so please don't believe it". "They kicked our ass, they played a great game". All the fans, they lying to you all.
Kerr benched his starters for most of the fourth quarter, conceding the loss.
Possibly in a way of damage control to scrub his uncharacteristic behavior from the minds of National Basketball Association fans, Durant chalked up last night to just two players playing ball.
After the game, there were no handshakes exchanged between the two teams. This is their first meeting since March 20th 2017, a game Golden State won by the score of 111-95 (Curry, Thompson combine for 57 points, 14 3s).
"Thirty-four points off turnovers, you can't win like that", Green said. Durant finished with 21 points and two dimes. We did it for a full game, rather than a half or a quarter.
