The Golden State Warriors defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2015-2016 Western Conference Finals and then proceeded to steal the team's best player.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr denied Monday that his team is upset with the Oklahoma City Thunder because of how the organization handled Kevin Durant's return to Chesapeake Energy Arena in February. It's not guaranteed that these two will meet again in the National Basketball Association playoffs, so if the Thunder wants to send a message that they're on par with the best team in the league, they better light up the Chesapeake Energy Arena in scenic Oklahoma City. They're going to need him again on Monday night, as they face Taj Gibson for the first time in a Thunder uniform this season.
Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook missed out on his fifth-straight triple-double, but finished with a game-high 28 points, along with 10 assists and eight rebounds, while Doug McDermott scored 21 points off the bench. OKC has beaten its last five opponents by an average of 14.6 points per game, with three wins coming against teams projected to have homecourt in the first round of the playoffs (Raptors, Jazz, Spurs).

Think you can do better than Lawro? They prospered largely because of players who, to varying degrees, have been on the fringes. However, Antonio Valencia scored his first goal in three years to secure the points in stoppage-time.
On Sunday, ESPN's Chris Haynes reported that the Warriors were collectively "furious and bewildered" that Oklahoma City did not do more to acknowledge Durant's contributions to the franchise or encourage fans to treat him with respect.

Panetta said Trump has to have "the trust of the American people to accomplish anything". The British government strongly denied it.
Thunder general manager Sam Presti released the following statement after Durant announced his decision to leave for the Warriors. It's a class organization all the way, so I don't really pay any attention to a story like that unless there's an actual name that's put on it. Sources? So I don't know who that is. It's nobody with the Warriors.
"We know we have the talent to score the ball inside or outside", Thunder center Enes Kanter said.
