Durant was 1 for 6 from distance and is 5 for 22 over his last three contests. Russell Westbrook - returning after missing 27 games following right knee surgery - got off to a quick start with a breakaway dunk in the first minute. He finished with 16 points over 24 minutes, though he was just 4 of 12 from the field and had four turnovers compared to two assists. The Thunder have won four of five from the Clippers (37-20), but split two meetings this season in November with each team winning at home. Durant totaled 61 points and 18 assists....

I hope Clippers beat OKC! Would be awesome if Clippers got their defensive groove in order and really play well.

We have a 0% chance of winning. So chalk this up as a W.

Also Kevin Durant is going to want to prove why he's the MVP after that Heat game, so I expect KD to get shutout by Dudley.

This team is so unpredictable.

Eric Patten ‏@EricPatten � 5h

"Would you believe in 17 matchups vs. Russell Westbrook, @CP3 has averaged more pts, rebs, asts AND stls. He's also got 10 wins head to head"

"Westbrook has also shot just 36.9% in 20 games vs. #Clippers. It's his 2nd lowest career FG% against an opponent (DET, 36.7% in 10 games)"

I expect CP3's win streak against Westbrook to continue.

Durant only took 22 shots in his last 3 games?

LMFAO! He took more than that in the All-Star game, surrounded by the best in the conference!

Seriously though, it probably means he's lived at the line.

Wouldn't mind posting up DJ early in this one. Their rookie center is a walking foul and we can leave them even shorter up front to level the playing field somewhat.

Nothing too horrible about the officiating crew (Scott Foster, Derrick Collins, Sean Wright). I never really liked Foster, but this year his numbers suggest he's favored road teams. We'll see.

Brad Turner ‏@BA_Turner 8m

Doc says its "50-50" CP plays today. Has sprained right thumb. CP shot before game

Why does Perkins have to be injured? Steven Adams is better than him and I'm sure he'll kill us tonight.

Lets keep attacking and getting to the foul line....but make the fts this time.

We shot 43 fts to the Grizzlies 15 on the road at that.

We really need to find our swag again.

If I were a coach I would let Deandre guard Ibaka and Blake on Adams.

I thought DJ was going to come out timid but he's doing a great job thus far. Team looks relaxed...Good sign.

Great start! Still can't help but feel nervous though after our recent struggles. This is going to be tough we can't let up!

DJ should back up with the player driving and wait till he releases the ball so he has a better chance to block or alter it.

Selfolosha has been hot garbage this year we want him shooting. I would shade off his side and help on Durant and Westrbooks drives every time they put it on the floor until they sub in jackson

5 offensive rebounds is the same amount we allowed Memphis through 3 quarters. We're half-way through the first.... lol

Defensive rebounds continue to be a problem for this teamm.. That and Dudley Defense is pretty hard to watch..

Okc doing a pretty good job on Blake so far

Blake needs to use his quickness, and not back down so much.
