Full Kevin Durant press conference following 40-point performance against OKC

Katie RamirezJan 20, 2017

Combined, the "Splash Brothers" were just 13-for-28 (46.4%) from the field, including a 6-for-14 (42.8%) performance from deep. Yes, he only missed three shots all night! The beef between the two started in the offseason when Durant bolted from the Thunder to join their nemesis Warriors.

Wednesday morning - while wearing sandals with "Why Not?" splattered all over them after Oklahoma City completed morning shootaround - he was asked about Harden's play, and offered platitudes about his former teammate.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook says he plans on getting back at Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia after he received a hard foul in the second quarter of their game Wednesday night.

"I'm going to get (him) back", Westbrook vowed.

As it turns out, Westbrook was not pleased with the way Pachulia knocked him to the floor or the way in which he stared him down after the initial contact was made.

But the Durant-Thunder undercurrent will run through any game the teams play, this season and probably beyond.

"Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points with 11 rebounds, six assists and three blocked shots for the Bucks".

According to the Warriors, Durant is one of three players in National Basketball Association history to score 35 or more points in each of his first two games against his former team, joining John Williamson against in and Charles Barkley against Philadelphia.

The Warriors visit the Thunder on February 11 in Kevin Durant's return to Oklahoma City for the first time since leaving for Golden State in free agency last summer. They started the year sluggishly, sitting at 15-24 on January 8, before rattling off a 29-14 record the rest of the way that earned them the No. 5 seed. We all know what my game is, to play hard.

The Blazers aren't even in the playoffs now, falling a game behind Denver for the No. 8 seed which projects to be historically bad.

"We live for controversy in this world right now". Victor Oladipo was the third leading-scorer with 20 points.
