A few minutes after the Thunder throttled the Golden State Warriors attention turned to a flight to Houston for the second game of OKC's first back-to-back of the season and a reunion with former Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook.
The former MVP is coming off the 139th triple-double of his career and his first not wearing a Thunder uniform. He had 28 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists in Houston's 126-123 win Saturday against the Pelicans.
Westbrook's former backup in OKC, Dennis Schroder, led the Thunder with 22 points against the Warriors and told reporters "it's going to be fun" going up against Westbrook but laughingly predicted he will 'try to go for our heads."
The game will also be a reunion for Chris Paul and his former Rockets teammates so there will certainly be a couple of fascinating sidebars to tonight's game. It tips off at 7:10 and you can see it on Fox Sports Oklahoma. The Thunder will be back inside The Peake Wednesday evening hosting Portland.
