Zaza Pachulia Says Whenever Russell Westbrook Wants to Throw Hands, He's Ready

Zaza Pachulia Says Whenever Russell Westbrook Wants to Throw Hands, He's Ready

In his two games against OKC, Durant has scored 79 points on 28-for-50 shooting.

Durant will have another chance to go after his former team and burnish his credentials as a Thunder Stopper when the teams meet on February 11 in Oklahoma City.

Westbrook, Curry, and Harden all had the same weighted score after the votes from fans, players and media were tallied.

Though Durant downplayed his production, his coach and teammates were not surprised he has been so good against the team with which he spent nine seasons. There were words exchanged and stare downs, and of course a few hard fouls - then an occasional smile to balance things out, like when Durant missed on a driving tomahawk jam and the ball shot back to midcourt. "The 6'3" guard joins Paul Arizin, Rick Barry and Wilt Chamberlain as the only Warriors to start in at least four All-Star Games. The Oklahoma City Thunder, who visit Golden State on Wednesday, already saw that type of performance once from the Warriors and will try to disrupt the rhythm with star Russell Westbrook going up against former teammate Kevin Durant.

Last season was the first time he averaged more than 10 assists in a season, finishing with 10.4, his career best rebound average is 7.8, also from the 2015-16 season.

"I'm going to get his ass back", Westbrook told reporters.

Last year's beaten women's finalist Serena Williams eased into the second round as the six-time victor beat Belinda Bencic . His serve was not so good, but his aggressiveness and movement were excellent. "She's a really good player".

The guards the players ranked above Thompson maybe are a bit more realistic: Chris Paul, C.J. McCollum, Damian Lillard, Curry, Harden and Westbrook.

When asked if he knew Pachulia was standing over him and staring at him after the foul, Westbrook replied: "No I didn't see that until just now, but I don't play that game". Thomas also is averaging more assists per game than Irving, and he leads the East in fourth quarter scoring per game, too.

Those two players are Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook and Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry.

With less than five seconds left in the second quarter of the Warriors' 121-100 win Wednesday over the Thunder, Pachulia leveled Westbrook. Adams wasn't with the team. The direct answer is that the fans preferred Curry, who finished first in fan voting.

This season there seems to be a consensus of the top three candidates, and it must come as a cruel irony for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
