Although he tried to record his sixth triple-double of the season, the fiery point guard fell just short, posting 34 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. But after losing soundly to Kevin Durant and Co. in all four meetings last season, the reigning NBA MVP sparked a different outcome at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
And this time he had help from All-Star additions.
In a game-high 39 minutes, Paul George recorded 20 points, 11 boards, four steals and two blocks. Carmelo Anthony chipped in 22 points.
Westbrook and Durant—who scored 21 points—squabbled on more than one occasion. They had an especially heated exchange during the third quarter, but Durant told reporters after the game that he has "nothing but love" for his former teammate, per The Athletic's Anthony Slater.
The victory snapped a two-game losing streak for the Thunder, who improved to 8-9, while the Warriors dropped to 13-5.
These budding rivals will meet again at Oracle Arena on Feb. 6.
