After all, Westbrook is averaging a triple-double, leading the Thunder to the playoffs despite the significant departure of Kevin Durant and is in a two-man race with James Harden for the MVP award.

Now one game past the halfway point, the Warriors are 36-6.

The 28-year-old, who spent nine years with the Thunder before departing Oklahoma City as a free agent in the off-season, also downplayed the significance of facing his former club.

"I didn't see that until just now, but I don't play that game", Westbrook said. "For most guys, you feel that little extra juice". "I'm not thinking about these kind of comments. He's got a lot of friends over there, and for sure he's motivated and it's a big deal".

Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City Thunder is guarded by Stephen Curry and Zaza Pachulia of the Golden State Warriors. Later during a break in play, Durant even nonchalantly approached Westbrook and said something. He also was victimized by a crossover move from Durant, after which they had some things to say to each other. "That's what they do". Thompson's excellent defense on Westbrook and Green's usual lock-down effort against everyone else sparked the Warriors' attack.

The Thunder host Golden State on February 11.

The Warriors shot 54 percent from the field, while the Thunder shot just 42 percent.

Rescue workers were not able to reach the area until the early hours of Thursday because of the poor weather conditions. Heavy snow hampered ambulances trying to reach the scene, which is deep in the Abruzzo region, popular with tourists.

"I thought it was a good steal, honestly, because I had the ball in my hands", Pachulia told reporters afterward.

There was more to it than that, Kerr insisted. Durant quickly found a rhythm in transition and half-court sets, and he shot the ball the same whether he was contested or not.

Thunder center Steven Adams' absence makes things even more hard for OKC on Wednesday night. In the Dubs' second meeting against his former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, KD tallied 40 points on 13-of-16 shooting Wednesday. "I guess the limit is six steps", Curry said.

The Warriors visit the Thunder on February 11, but Pachulia said he wasn't concerned with Westbrook's vow to get revenge. I'm just going to play.

Now, via ESPN, it seems the league will take a good, long, hard look at the entirety of that play. That was tied for the most points scored by a player in the first game against his former team in National Basketball Association history. We all know what my game is, to play hard.

To be completely fair, Westbrook still finished with a triple-double, so it's not like he was playing like a chump.

The Thunder drop to 25-19 on the season and have lost three of their last four games. Jerami Grant tied the game at 63-63 with a nice bucket out of the post, but Kevin Durant responded with a 3-pointer before Klay Thompson added five quick points as the Warriors ripped of a demoralizing 8-to-0 run.
