A few stray thoughts from watching the Thunder smoke the young Timberwolves on a grainy internet stream:
- Kevin Durant and Russell Westbook picked up where they left off. It’s been a pretty simple thing every sane person has been saying the last eight months, but it played out as evidence tonight: When Westbrook and Durant are on the floor together, the Thunder be good. Very, very good. Westbrook was absurd in his 22 minutes, almost triple-doubling with 14 points, eight rebounds and 13 assists. Durant got going in the third quarter, finishing with 15 (5-8 shooting) and four assists. Both were a +21.
