They were teammates in Oklahoma City, but the two have not spoken since the summer of 2016 when Durant left for the Warriors. We're just playing the game, and trash talking is part of it.
Westbrook, who usually is animated anyway, was more talkative on the court than usual. Heat center Hassan Whiteside is as good as it gets defensively for a big man in the National Basketball Association and he will match up with Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns which presents a very interesting battle on Thursday.
"I play the same way every night if it's against Kevin or if it's against Detroit", he said.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin tallied his first triple-double of the season with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists as his team snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 116-103 win over the Atlanta Hawks. After averaging 31.6 points (24.0 field goal attempts) during the 2016-17 season en route to his first Most Valuable Player award, he is now averaging 10.7 points and 5.7 field goal attempts less through 17 games.

Head coach Andy Reid talked about what the addition of Revis means for Kansas City's defense and the team overall moving forward. Revis is making $6 million from the New York Jets this season after they cut him previous year .
"We lost, they kicked our a-, they played a great game". Only friend I have is the basketball, that's it.
Then, in the middle of the third quarter, Durant and Westbrook found themselves face-to-face after another stop in play. And obviously my teammates. "Like I've been saying since day one, and that's what I do". But I go out and compete, I go out and play at a high level. "For the most part, I don't think we did that well tonight, and you've got to be ready for that challenge because they do keep coming at you". It's about the Thunder and the Warriors.
"The story is about the game", Durant said. On the other end of the floor, the Thunder gave the Warriors fits with their length, physicality, and their overplaying of passing lanes, a tactic which has been the Warriors' bane for much of this season. It's not about who was in each other's faces.
