Durant has best game of season against Westbrook

Durant, who scored 39 points in the Warriors' 26-point win over the Thunder in November, was brutally efficient, connecting on 13 of his 16 shots from the field, including five of seven from three-point range.

Referees reviewed the physical play and charged Pachulia with a flagrant foul.

Sources told ESPN that the National Basketball Association, which reviews all flagrant fouls, ‎is expected look into the "totality" of the incident after Pachulia knocked Westbrook down in the second quarter of the Warriors' eventual 121-100 victory, which prompted Westbrook to say afterward of Pachulia that he's going to "get his ass back".

Golden State outscored Oklahoma City 37-22 in the third to turn the game into another blowout on the way to wrapping up 9-1 stay in Northern California over the past 3 1/2 weeks.

Westbrook finished with 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists to register his 21st triple-double of the season. The only Thunder to record a block through three quarters were Westbrook, Cameron Payne and Victor Oladipo, all guards who stand 6-foot-4 or shorter.

Gangasagar stampede: Six killed as pilgrims rush to board boat at Gangasagar
According to reports, several others were injured in the stampede, which occurred at the Kachuberia ghats. The region holds significance as the River Ganga enters into Bay of Bengal here.

The Warriors meet the Thunder once again this season on February 11 in what is bound to be a very emotional game not only because of Westbrook acting out his revenge.

"I'm gonna get his ass back", Westbrook said.

Then it appeared to turn on one of the weirder plays you'll see.

"I don't know. I'm up for anything", Durant said regarding whether he expects more jawing. You know he comes out here and gives it his all every night. "When we play well defensively, we're hard to beat". "For most guys, you feel that extra juice when you play against a team that you played on".

Of course the Thunder would be massive underdogs in said series, and the chances of winning would be somewhere between slim and none. And if Westbrook is on the court, make no mistake: he never expects to lose, and he isn't going to back down.
