Kevin Durant expects emotional Round 2 vs

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were Thunder teammates for eight National Basketball Association seasons, but the relationship between the two has become non-existent since Durant left OKC to join the Warriors in free agency.

Tonight, the reunion the National Basketball Association has been waiting for is finally happening. "It's never going to be a regular game for me (vs Thunder)". "I'm done with rivalry talk", said Draymond Green. "I'm not talking about that right now".

Durant and the Warriors are coming off a satisfying 126-91 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, while the Thunder were thumped 120-98 by the Clippers in its Monday game. "I'm just going to play". "I'm not assuming the worst by any means, but I recognize there's probably a good chance he's out a game or two, best case".The two still haven't spoken. Last summer, Kanter was forthcoming social media with his resentment of Durant choosing to relocate to the Bay Area after he spent eight seasons in OKC. "All that other stuff, I don't have anything to say". Westbrook became the undisputed leader of the Thunder with Durant's departure and is putting up historic stat lines but not quite as many wins. The teams met last postseason in the Western Conference Finals, which the Warriors won in seven games.

Joffrey Lauvergne, another big man who featured a lot in the defeat to Los Angeles and had 13 points and nine rebounds, is also another option for coach Donovan after he played a bench-leading 30 minutes on Monday. There's nothing serious. We got the first one out the way, and we're just going to play the next game. Thunder center Steven Adams (concussion) will sit out his team's fourth game of a six-game road trip. They're now in the seventh spot in the Western Conference standings. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson (family reasons) is questionable.
