Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder storm past Golden State Warriors

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

ESPN previews tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors: "The first star-studded meeting between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder takes place on Wednesday night in Oklahoma City in what resembles an All-Star game more so than a regular-season affair". They kicked our (expletive), they played a great game.

Coming into this game, the Thunder found itself in a rut.

And so it will go for the rest of this year - the teams play two more times before the playoffs - and we should be thankful for it. When Draymond Green was called for a foul shortly after that, the two really started jawing at each other.

In a game that featured games within the game, it was a 108-91 victory for the Thunder that produced multiple confrontations between former teammates Kevin Durant and Westbrook.

Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder finally got one on the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

"Just a coach being hard on himself, just like I'm hard on myself when I turn it over or have a bad game, or miss shots, or whatever the case is", said Curry post-game.

Westbrook may have rode that solo act to a historic season, becoming the first player to average a triple-double in over a half century and winning the league's MVP award, but Oklahoma City never had a chance to be a truly competitive team. We're just playing the game, and trash talking is part of it.

"The story is about the game".

Golden State turned the ball over 22 times. You should give them credit for how they played and we should be better.

"It's not about who was in each other's faces".

Or the opposite. But, I don't know, maybe that's actually the plan? All that aside, KD is claiming that his supposed beef with Russ "is not real, so please don't believe it". I just think it's too hyped. All the fans, they lying to you all.

The Thunder led 65-48 at halftime as Westbrook filled the stat sheet with 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists. The two teams will meet again on February 6.

Despite all of the tension between the two former teammates, Durant reminded reporters that it should be about the game, not about their scuffle.
