Kevin Durant (ankle) rejoins Warriors' lineup for Thunder tilt

ESPN previews tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors: "The first star-studded meeting between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder takes place on Wednesday night in Oklahoma City in what resembles an All-Star game more so than a regular-season affair".

The Warriors, who have notched four victories already this season in games they've trailed by at least 15 points, have won nine of their last 10 games, including back-to-back wins over the 76ers and Nets this past weekend.

The game comes at a point in the season where both the Warriors and the Thunder have been, in their own ways, struggling a bit out of the gate.

Oklahoma City's fans are still sore over Durant's departure. When Draymond Green was called for a foul shortly after that, the two really started jawing at each other. Durant may have inflamed his former team when he critiqued Thunder coach Billy Donovan and a lack of supporting staff in a tweet written in the third person.

While Durant may say it was just ball, the usually mellow superstar's behavior may have proved he hasn't resolved some issues within himself.

This is not the first time Westbrook and Durant have had a heated exchange on the court. That's part of the game.

"The story's about the game".

It was a sloppy performance for Golden State, who matched 22 turnovers with 22 assists while shooting just 41.3 percent from the floor.

"I'm done trying to convince people that I love being here, I love playing basketball here, I love growing as a basketball player and a person", Durant told reporters. "Whether it's against Kevin, whether it's against. who we play Friday?" All that aside, KD is claiming that his supposed beef with Russ "is not real, so please don't believe it".

Or the opposite. But, I don't know, maybe that's actually the plan? All the fans, they lying to you all.

After the game, there were no handshakes exchanged between the two teams.

Curry had a team-high 24 points, and Durant added in 21 points. 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).
