Excluding the NBA Finals rematch between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, this is the most anticipated game of the season. After spending his first nine seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics and Oklahoma City Thunder (1 season with Seattle and 8 seasons with OKC), Kevin Durant jumped ship to the Warriors in free agency.
To say that OKC fans were pissed about his decision would be the understatement of the century. And tonight, they will finally get the chance to let him know exactly how they feel about him when he returns to the Chesapeake Energy Arena for the first time as a member of the opposition. They’ve even made some hot fire shirts to wear for the occasion.
These two teams have already met twice this season, with both of the previous games taking place in Oakland. The Warriors (45-8) beat the hell out of the Thunder (31-23) both times, picking up 122-96 and 121-100 victories. But at least Russell Westbrook is winning the trash talking battle.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can watch the game.
