KD wasn't shabby either, posting 21 points and five rebounds on 8-of-17 shooting.
His final chance for an assist came with just over two minutes to play when he drove to the basket and dropped the ball off to Steven Adams in the paint. However, all the talk after the game was about his confrontation with Russ in the above video and, to no one's surprise, Durant tried to downplay the severity of the exchange. "We like to go at it, both of us, and that's just part of the game, so I respect it", Durant said after the game, per ESPN.com. Whether the issues are from the infamous 3-1 blown lead to the Warriors in 2016, or that he regrets going to the Warriors, Durant appeared to take it personally, while Westbrook played intense as usual.
The Thunder produced their best and most complete performance of the season by dispatching the defending champions 108-91 at a raucous Chesapeake Energy Arena on Wednesday night.
Durant had missed the Warriors' previous game with a sprained left ankle, but had been upgraded to probable for Wednesday.

Bombing at Nigeria mosque kills at least 50
The town's name was changed temporarily to Madinatul Islam, or "City of Islam" in Arabic, during the brief Boko Haram occupation. A bomber struck inside a mosque packed with worshippers during morning prayers in the town of Mubi.
But aside from the impressive win for OKC, the game will once again be remembered for an on-court dust-up between Westbrook and former teammate Durant.
"I play the same way every night if it's against Kevin or if it's against Detroit", he said. Westbrook and Durant have clashed a few other times on the floor, with Westbrook yelling, "I'm coming!" at Durant during a run last season, and Durant replying, "So what?"
"The story is about the game", Durant said. Then they play the Kings on Monday before starting a six-game road trip in Los Angeles next week. Should give them credit for how they played, and we should be better. It's not about who's in each other's faces. So please don't believe it. And real passion is great for the game. Late in the second quarter, they took care of business on their own, and National Basketball Association fans around the world were treated to the type of star-on-star drama that they've come to expect.
