Report: Thunder to Host Warriors For First Time on Feb. 11
Whenever Kevin Durant opted to join the Warriors in free agency last month, many fans in OKC wanted to know when exactly Durant would return back to Oklahoma to play against his former team.
Well it looks like that question has finally been answered.
According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Warriors will travel to Oklahoma City on Feb. 11, to take on Russell Westbrook and the Thunder.

It's a pretty long wait for those wanting to either cheer or jeer OKC's former superstar, but the Thunder will at least get a shot at the Warriors closer to the start of the season. Stein also reported that the Thunder will travel to Oakland to take on the Warriors on Nov. 3, which falls in the second week of the NBA season.
