Early in the third quarter, on back-to-back possessions, Westbrook took advantage of Golden State miscues near midcourt and went right for the bucket, helping the Thunder stretch its lead to 19.

Connor Letourneau (San Francisco Chronicle) on Kevin Durant being questionable for the game: "After going through a light practice Tuesday with no problems, Durant - listed as questionable for Wednesday's game in Oklahoma City with a sprained ankle - is optimistic that he'll be able play just his second game as a visitor in the place he once thought he'd call home for the rest of his career".

Westbrook sparked the Thunder with his energy and seemed to direct a lot of it at Durant. "That's it. Just one game at a time".

Leading up to Wednesday night's game between Durant's Warriors and his former team, Oklahoma City, the 29-year-old superstar said, "It's about time for me to go ahead and stop talking about that stuff". The Thunder blew out the Warriors 108-91. Anthony had 16 points and George had 14 at the break.

Mark Medina (Mercury News) on KD feeling more at peace on this trip to Oklahoma: "But while the Thunder has changed its team identity since Durant last faced them in Oklahoma City, Durant believes he has changed his personal identity".

Warriors: Klay Thompson scored just nine points.

In the third quarter, tempers flared even more. Draymond Green, who hit only one shot on eight attempts on Monday, will likely bounce back offensively against Carmelo Anthony, but his main job will be to limit Melo as much as possible. Golden State is the best team in the league when it comes to field goal percentage (51.48%) and three-point percentage (40.38%), while they are among the best ten teams (8th) in rebounding (45.76).

Oklahoma City continued a unusual trend. 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). He's averaging 21.9 PTS, 5.9 REB, 2.8 AST, 2.6 STL and 0.4 BLK with 2.7 TO for the 2017-2018 season. You should give them credit for how they played, and we should be better.

"The story is about the game". It's not about who was in each other's faces. "All the fans, they're lying to you all".

"We lost, they kicked our a-, they played a great game".
