The Golden State Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 121-100 in what might have been Kevin Durant’s best game of the season. “Every player in the NBA wants to play well against his old team,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant’s performance. “For most guys, you feel that extra juice when you play against a team that you played on. I think it’s even more so with KD because of his history with that franchise.”

The blood was bad for much of the evening, and the game was good — initially. In the end, Oklahoma City was overwhelmed by Durant at his most dominant. Having scored 39 the first time he faced his old, scorned team, he continued the pain, this time scoring 40 on a mere 16 shots.
