The win was both a message that despite early struggles OKC's new Big 3 could compete with the champs and a cathartic victory for the Thunder faithful who got to watch Westbrook finally take down Durant at home - and they got to see Westbrook and Durant get into it a little bit.
Westbrook was an assist short of a triple-double, recording a game-high 34 points and 10 boards.
Russell Westbrook is ... yes, let's just say it ... the best rivalry we have going in sports (LaVar Ball v. Donald Trump is rising quickly, though). "It was all good, and they deserved to win, and the crowd deserved to get the joy that they got out of this game".

This Thansgiving, a lot of National Basketball Association fans are thankful for some good old trash talking among former teammates turned rivals. "For the most part, I don't think we did that well tonight, and you've got to be ready for that challenge because they do keep coming at you".
The All-Star duo went forehead-to-forehead briefly in the third quarter and were each assessed a technical foul.
It also appears that Durant calls Westbrook a "p-sy" during the extra-curricular activities, proceeding to just laugh it off when Steven Adams and Draymond Green intervened. "I don't know", Durant said when asked if he'll be able to play. He scored 17 of his 33 points on Stephen Curry as his primary defender. It was a game that yielded more than its share of tense moments, including a nose-to-nose standoff between the two former teammates.

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). Oklahoma City is still trying to sort out the rest of its bench beyond what it should get from Patterson, as well as what it is getting from backup point guard Raymond Felton. All eight of its wins have been by nine or more points, and all nine of its losses have come by nine or fewer.
"The story is about the game", Durant said.
"It's not about who was in each other's faces". All that aside, KD is claiming that his supposed beef with Russ "is not real, so please don't believe it". All the fans, they lying to you all. Then they play the Kings on Monday before starting a six-game road trip in Los Angeles next week.
