Kevin Durant: 'Time For Me To Stop Talking About [Thunder]'

Kevin Durant: 'Time For Me To Stop Talking About [Thunder]'

Westbrook's name will be who National Basketball Association fans around the country will be discussing as they sit down to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, both for his forehead-to-forehead jawing match with Durant in the third quarter and for his spectacular line of 34 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in 37 minutes.

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. Westbrook and Durant have clashed a few other times on the floor, with Westbrook yelling, "I'm coming!" at Durant during a run last season, and Durant replying, "So what?" "That's it. Just one game at a time".

Durant sprained his ankle during Golden State's come-from-behind victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday and missed the game against the Brooklyn Nets the following day.

The Warriors are hoping to extend the winning run to three matches, while the Thunder are looking to snap the two-game losing streak. He scored 17 of his 33 points on Stephen Curry as his primary defender.

They were teammates in Oklahoma City, but the two have not spoken since the summer of 2016 when Durant left for the Warriors. Should give them credit for how they played, and we should be better. He has averaged 20.1 PTS, 8.7 REB, 9.7 AST, 1.9 STL and 0.1 BLK with 4.5 TO. And since then? Warriors forward Draymond Green summed up, "he's just not anxious about all the other stuff".

Trump pardons Thanksgiving turkeys Drumstick and Wishbone
Trump's first turkey pardon marks the 70th year the National Turkey Federation has presented the President with a Turkey. But I guess the Thanksgiving tradition did offer some light in what seems to be a very dark end to the year.

Perhaps the most talked about moment came in the third quarter. "We'll see how it feels in the morning but right now, it feels good".

Oklahoma City continued a odd trend.

In a game that the Thunder controlled from the start, tensions initially started to bubble up in the second quarter after a turnover on a pass intended for Durant. It's not about who was in each other's faces. "It's the same atmosphere that they've always had, so we wouldn't expect anything different". The Thunder are scoring 103.19 points per contest on average (19th in the NBA), while they are allowing 98.56 points in return (4th in the NBA). All that aside, KD is claiming that his supposed beef with Russ "is not real, so please don't believe it".
