Kevin Durant disparages spat with Russell Westbrook

What's the story?

Kevin Durant comments on his spat with Russell Westbrook by saying that this kind of stuff is not real and recommends not to believe it.

In case you didn't know...

Things looked good this past summer but Kevin Durant's infamous tweets from his burner Twitter accounts might have reignited the beef.

The heart of the matter...

The Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant, when asked about the scuffles in the contest against Oklahoma City Thunder, asked the reporters "Did you watch the game or did you just try to watch for the scuffles?"

"The story's about the game. We lost. They kicked our a**. They played a great game. Should give them credit for how they played, and we should be better. It's not about who's on each other faces. That stuff is not real, so please don't believe it. All the fans, they lying to you all. It's about basketball, and they played a great game. We didn't." he added.

Durant had 21 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals in the 108-91 loss to his former club. On the other hand, his former co-star Russell Westbrook was the leading scorer for OKC as he ended with season-high 34 points to go along with 10 rebounds and 9 assists.

The two engaged in some heated moments, the most notable one being:


What's next?

It would be an intriguing contest as the two teams meet again on Feb 6, 2018, this time in Oracle Arena.

Author's take...

Russell Westbrook got his revenge this time on Kevin Durant. The Oklahoma City Thunder just showed what they are capable of doing when provided with the correct motivation. They played stellar defense and never allowed the Warriors to go on any sort of run. The rivalry is on and Warriors would like to strike back as the two teams meet again this time on Warriors home floor.
