Warriors vs. Thunder odds 2017: Westbrook, Oklahoma City home underdog for Saturday

He did not end up resigning with the Thunder.

A late second-quarter surge gave the Cavaliers a 57-55 halftime lead over the Thunder, but Oklahoma City outpaced Cleveland, 63-52, after the break on the way to the victory. Rumor has it that one of they options they find particularly intriguing is Orlando Magic forward and free-agent-to-be Serge Ibaka.

There's an emotional component to matchups with Golden State.

The Warriors roster is stacked with talent. He is quietly turning into a double-double machine, recording two in consecutive games last Sunday and Monday.

Instead, Durant opted to sign with the Warriors and team up with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Some of the more passionate Thunder fans are going to wear T-shirts saying, "Koward" on the front.

Now, KD brings his act to the Peake Saturday for the first time in a blue and gold uniform. The look on his face. Will Oklahoma City Thunder fans cheer for him? Tonight he will be meeting his former team once again, according to ESPN. There's no way of shutting down everyone on the Warriors, but they do have bad shooting days, which is often part of the equation when they lose.

New Way Teens Using E-Cigarettes Could Harm Their Heath
Sixty-four per cent of the teens admitted they tried dripping to get thicker clouds of vapour so they could pull off smoke tricks. CT law makes it illegal for minors to buy or possess e-cigarettes, but as the Yale study shows, many have found ways around that.

The fact that he joined the 73-win super team would've left many people upset with Durant, regardless.

Prior to the Thunder, the closest thing Oklahomans had to a pro-sports experience was college football. Westbrook has been playing inspired basketball all year and he is on his way to averaging a triple double over the course of the season's long haul. And, from a distance, the mature Durant downplaying off-court drama seems like the right move, in contrast to the volatile Westbrook, who seemingly takes every single mention of the Warriors as personal slander.

Due to a tight window in Oklahoma City, Kleiman will make the rounds on Durant's behalf at the various foundations and organizations the superstar continues to support, a source said. Oklahoma City is having a strong campaign. "But usually once the game starts it goes back to normal and you worry about the game". They were 0-3 against the Cavs, Warriors and Spurs coming in and had also lost at the Peake to Houston. Durant does shoot horribly from three in Warriors losses (23.5% compared to 40.5% when they win). I'm not trying to come over and feel like everything just revolves around me. By joining the Warriors he took a crucial step towards bringing his dream to life. If the postseason began today, the teams would avoid facing each other until possibly the Western Conference Finals.

Fred Katz is the Thunder beat writer for the Norman Transcript and CNHI Oklahoma as well as the host of the Locked on Thunder podcast.

Russ decided this game would be a good game to show that he was capable of handling the team all on his own and did not need Durant to be successful.
