The Western Conference has only one unbeaten team, and that’s the OKC Thunder, after Russell Westbrook led them to a 85-83 win against the LA Clippers to go 4-0.
Thunder’s next game is against the Golden State Warriors at the Oracle Arena on Thursday.
There is much hype surrounding the game, with former Thunder player, Durant playing against his former team for the first time since joining the Warriors.
Asked if there’s any extra level of excitement going into Thursday’s game, Westbrook said it’s just another game on the schedule.
“I play every game like it’s my last,” Westbrook said. “I play every game the same, always. Like I’ve been saying for years. And regardless of who we play, I’m going to play the same way.”
Thunder coach Billy Donovan offered his take on the matchup.
“It’s not just Kevin. We’re playing the Warriors,” Donovan said. “He’s part of that. That’s Klay Thompson. Steph Curry. Draymond Green. It’s Kevin. It’s all those guys. It’s their whole team we have to prepare for.”
