Russell Westbrook might say this is just any old game, but he sure doesn't act like it. After denying an entry pass to Durant, he gave a little bump and yelled "Nah!" into the crowd, quite emphatically. Durant just laughed.

Oklahoma City's Big 3 of Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony have 40 of the team's 51 points.

Courtney Lee has created 9 of the Knicks' 11 points so far in the second half. NYK seems to have made the right decision by not trading him over the summer, instead pairing him with Tim Hardaway Jr.

Fun first quarter in OKC as the Thunder lead 33-26. OKC shot 15-of-28, with Westbrook playing brilliantly (11 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists), though leading by only seven is a bit discouraging with the Warriors shooting 8-of-22 with six turnovers.

Golden State hasn't faced an atmosphere like this all season. These OKC fans are bringing it.

Once again, the Celtics are facing a halftime deficit. They'll need another second-half comeback in order to extend the winning streak to 17 games. At intermission in Miami, they trail the Heat by 13.

Westbrook blew by Curry on a crossover and finished an and-1 over Kevon Looney, then turned and had a few things to say in Curry's direction. Not even a quarter in and this is getting spicy.

Awesome sequence midway through the first quarter: Jerami Grant blocks Durant at the rim, Paul George nails a transition 3, then Durant comes right back with one of his own. Don't know how long it'll last, but this is fun so far.

It's still very early (second quarter just started), but the Celtics so far have looked out of sync. They've bobbled a few passes, one of which led to an awkwardly missed Marcus Smart shot. They've mishandled a rebound. A mixup between Daniel Theis and Marcus Morris on a ball it originally looked like Theis would shoot led to a turnover and subsequent Heat 3. Before the game, Brad Stevens praised Miami's physicality, saying it could be a concern.

The Knicks have to find a way to slow Toronto on the perimeter. Raps' penetration has helped them start the game 7-for-15 from beyond the arc. They enter play tonight ranked 23rd in 3-point field goal percentage.

Kevin Durant heard boos as his name was called in starting introductions, but definitely not anywhere in the same world as it was last February.

Raptors' Dwane Casey on Enes Kanter, who is 3rd in the NBA in offensive rebounds per 48 minutes: "Just one guy, I don't think, is going to box him out by himself because he's like the old-school Rodman, you know. Rodman goes to the boards, doesn't even look for his offensive shot and that's kind of Kanter," said Casey, whose Raptors held Kanter to 0 offensive boards Saturday. "He has that knack of finding you so we have to make sure we give him multiple bodies and he's one of the best of the world at the free throw line of just bulldozing his way in and running over whoever's in front of him to get a rebound. So we've got to make sure we put extra special attention to him at the free-throw line."
