In his first game against his former team, Kevin Durant roasted Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder for 39 points in a 122-96 Golden State Warriors victory on Thursday night at Oracle Arena.
There was plenty of woofing going on as tensions were clearly high for the emotional game, although there was little to no interaction between Durant and Westbrook.
Rather, arguably the most notable interaction of the night was between Durant and Enes Kanter, who’s been critical of KD on social media:

After the game, Durant then fired away at Kanter:

Westbrook had some thoughts about some of the trash talking going on:

Hopefully these games will actually be closer in the future so things can get REALLY heated, but if KD and the Warriors play like they did last night there’s little contest.
