The matchup has been awaited for a while now. Russell Westbrook has been sending shots at Kevin Durant, because Kevin Durant departed Oklahoma City to play for the Golden State Warriors. They avoided each other pregame, and all the fans knew there could only be a winner. The game was in the former NBA MVP’s favor. Russell Westbrook has been making magical plays all season, but he was no match for his ex-teammate.
The Thunder’s Russell Westbrook was held to an “average” performance, though he put up a double-double. He dropped 20 points, only making four buckets all night. Warriors’ Kevin Durant dropped 39 points, and made 7 three pointers. This outstanding performance is a recipe for a win any night.
