Kevin Durant, mother Wanda, say focus on OKC has gone too far

Kevin Durant (ankle) probable tonight vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

While it will take time for Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony to build chemistry, they earned an impressive 108-91 win over Kevin Durant and the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

Tensions were certainly high between the two, but according to Durant, their interaction was not a big deal.

Westbrook on the other hand described the incidents as him letting Durant know he is "coming at your neck every single night". On a number of occasions, Westbrook was very animated, while not directly talking to Durant, but yelling about plays. "It's the same atmosphere that they've always had, so we wouldn't expect anything different".

"It's OKC", said Wanda Durant, Kevin's mother, to ESPN's Chris Haynes following the game. You should give them credit for how they played, and we should be better.

With 34 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and four steals, the reigning NBA MVP led his team to its first win over the Warriors since Durant left Oklahoma City for the Bay Area in 2016. It don't matter who it is.

Durant - who recovered from an ankle injury to play - did have 21 points and five rebounds, but he was one of just three Warriors to score in double digits on the night.

President Mahmoud Abbas ordered all contacts with Washington on hold until Palestinian demands are met, sources within the PA government told RT.

After the game, Westbrook said the only friends he had on the court were his teammates and the basketball.

Owing to travel, I was able to just catch some of the first half and glimpses of the second half of the game, but what I saw was pretty subpar basketball from the Dubs.

"I go out and compete, I got out and play at a high level, like I've been saying since Day One and that's what I did". It was a game that yielded more than its share of tense moments, including a nose-to-nose standoff between the two former teammates.

"We've got to be better in that area ... especially this team playing in this building and especially playing against us". It's not about who's in each other's faces. That stuff is not real, so please don't believe it.

"The story is about the game", Durant said. All the fans, they lying to y'all.
