Papagiannis has career game, but Westbrook dominates Kings in blowout win


Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors are mad at the Oklahoma City Thunder for exposing him to the elements.

Durant joined the Warriors from the Thunder last summer as a free agent in one of the most controversial moves in recent National Basketball Association history.

Haynes added the Warriors felt the lack of acknowledgement from anyone in the Thunder organization helped contribute to the hostile reaction Durant received from the Oklahoma City crowd last month. He is expected to be re-evaluated by doctors next week and the Warriors are hoping that he will be back before the end of the regular season. It seems like a long way to travel to relegate himself to a TV screen.

At the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, at 8:00 pm ET, Russell Westbrook and the Thunder will host Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Westbrook also is on pace to join Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double over an entire season as his averages sit at 31.4 points, 10.5 assists and 10.4 rebounds. Can he get a measure of redemption with Durant out?

Georgios Papagiannis had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Sacramento, which had a two-game winning streak snapped.

How will Westbrook handle seeing Zaza Pachulia again? . In the second Warriors-Thunder game of the season, on January 18, Pachulia delivered a hard foul on Westbrook and stood over him as the guard writhed on the court. Take your time. Get right.

Quotable: "We've played (in Oklahoma City) plenty of times".

While I understand wanting the best for your players, it seems a bit ridiculous being "furious" as an organization about how another team went about welcoming back a player that just left in free agency.
