What Had Happened Was: 1/19/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
It’s now 2-0 in the Kevin Durant-Russell Westbrook rivalry, and the games haven’t even been close. Wednesday night’s game ended in a 121-100 rout by Durant and Golden State, while the first game, back in November, was another Warriors blowout victory, 122-96. The last two games of this regular-season series will be played in Oklahoma City, where hopefully the Thunder can make it a slightly closer final result. This doesn’t mean the game lacked for interest, however.
