One key transaction later, things have changed big-time.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (0) controls the ball against Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers (25) during the first half at Staples Center. The game was improbably tied at 56 at half, with the Warriors looking thoroughly disinterested. The Thunder also slowed Golden State's early offense by forcing seven turnovers.

"They get away with a lot of stuff, but it is what it is, man".

Westbrook finished with 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists for his 21st triple-double of the season, but Oklahoma City was routed by Golden State, 121-100. Later during a break in play, Durant even nonchalantly approached Westbrook and said something. "That's what they do". Klay Thompson, who flew to the arena after visiting his ill grandfather, was understandably off his mark, but he came back online as the game progressed. Durant jawed back and forth with his old teammates and it created a memorable game for the newest addition to Golden State.

There was more to it than that, Kerr insisted. Leveraging the talent of his teammates, Durant found himself getting very favorable matchups on the offensive end, adding in a heat check or two for good measure after he got going.

The Thunder missed Kiwi centre Steven Adams for the second game due to a concussion and his presence on the floor was clearly missed with the Warriors winning the rebound battle and physical battle.

"He's having a fantastic season, but it's kind of going under the radar". Durant got the green light against his former team and delivered a season high without breaking from the effortless efficiency that has defined his season. "I guess the limit is six steps", Curry said.

Afterward, Durant downplayed the role the opponent played in inspiring his big night. He is on pace to become the first player since Oscar Robertson in 1961-62, and just the second ever, to average a triple-double for a season. Westbrook, for the most part, has remained quiet on the issue.

The officials originally called it a common foul but determined it a flagrant foul on review because Pachulia made contact to Westbrook's head.

Westbrook was asked after the game if he's on speaking terms with Durant, and he replied flatly, "No". "But it's all right - I'm gonna get his ass back, straight up".

It's a amusing anecdote, but the full contact practices also could explain why Harden quickly became one of the NBA's best at drawing fouls and finishing through the contact.

Little did we know Zaza Pachulia would insert himself with mucho gusto into the middle of the rivalry.
