The line for this game is Golden State by 10.5 points.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook square off as adversaries for the first time in their NBA careers when Durant’s new team, the Golden State Warriors, host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday. Durant departed the Thunder as a free agent in the offseason and tension is high as he faces his former teammates for the first time.

Westbrook signed a three-year, $85 million extension after Durant’s departure and he has embraced the opportunity to finally be viewed as the face of a franchise. He had 35 points in the victory over the Clippers and is averaging 37.8 points, 10.5 rebounds and 10 assists but refused to answer any questions about Durant in the postgame session with reporters. But he did have this to say shortly after Durant left.

Durant is averaging 28.5 points and shooting 57.4 percent from the floor through four games with his new team. Coach Steve Kerr said Durant has seamlessly meshed with his new teammates.

The Warriors won all three regular-season meetings last season.

Oklahoma City SG Victor Oladipo was 3-of-11 shooting against the Clippers and is shooting just 32.8 percent from the field.

Golden State PG Stephen Curry has 28 points in Tuesday’s 127-104 trouncing of Portland and is averaging 26.3 points.
