Don't write them off just yet, Warriors lead down to 12 with 8:35 left #News9Thunder

As good as these fans have ever been. @NEWS9 @okcthunder

Warriors 105 Thunder 88 after three, Russ-41pts #News9Thunder

Russ just blew by his 3rd qtr break. Has as much to do w Payne's ineptness as needing Russ in game. #Thunder @NEWS9

CUPCAKE is here to stay. If #Thunder fans yell it when 20 down, they'll yell it forever. @NEWS9

KD doesn't have any friends on the OKC sideline, Dre and KD butt heads #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

Said it when Kanter went out, Russ' assist for triple doubles would go down. #Thunder really struggle finishes on should-be Russ assists

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

KD and Russ go one on one in the 4th, wouldn't that be great #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

Russ getting better of KD in this 1 on 1 exhibition. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Never would've guessed a year ago JMcGee would be schooling unsound #Thunder D. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Interesting .... looks like Kerr is having KD cover Russ. 3 straight possessions. @news9 @okcthunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

From 3: 21-0 GSW. Really, @okcthunder misses weren't close. And for the thousandth time. Roberson is 0-3. Why is he shooting? @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Warriors 73 Thunder 50 at half, the energy at the Peake is pretty much gone right now #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

Missing every 3-pt attempt & playing w/o Kanter makes is virtually impossible to beat a truly great team. Heck, an average team. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Scoring droughts against the Warriors are never good, Warriors up 20 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

45 points for the Warriors and not a single player in double figures. #News9Thunder

— Lee Benson (@LeeBensonNews9) February 12, 2017

For those keeping score, @okcthunder is 0-8 from 3. Losing basketball. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

And to think Livingston was once with the @okcthunder. He'd be a top player here now. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Game tied w Russ on floor. Minus 13 without. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

It's a 9 point game and OKC has Payne & Abrines trying to guard Livingston & Iggy. @NEWS9

Most glaring 1st quarter stat: Russ 5 turnovers. @okcthunder @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Tied when Russ left w 1:43 in 1st, @okcthunder down 6 after 1. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Warriors up 30-24 after one, turnovers haunting OKC with 7 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

Both teams combined, 0/11 behind the arc. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

Just when you begin a tweet saying all #Thunder except Russ playing well, Zero makes an And-1. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Sabonis with 5 quick points? Who guessed that one? Thunder up 13-8 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 12, 2017

As loud of boos as I've ever heard. @Warriors @okcthunder @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Gotta believe GSW teammates want this one for KD something bad....@DNEWS9 @okcthunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Definitely playoff atmosphere in Peake tonight. @NEWS9 @okcthunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

Apparently Cupcake Man in arena. I was 6' away when security ushered him out of way of KD entrance ..... pic.twitter.com/qLJqT7Gvou

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 12, 2017

... & out the floor of arena. No harm no foul. Cupcake was crowding KD entry - it's a zoo down here. @news9 #Thunder pic.twitter.com/d7nkmGCESG

It's a big night when Magic Johnson is in OKC for regular season & Lakers aren't playing. @news9 @okcthunder pic.twitter.com/RMCt0EPWFF

What boos? KD can't hear a thing. But loud boos greeted his return. @news9 @okcthunder pic.twitter.com/KD4d4WERiT

Chesapeake security just kicked person dressed up as cupcake mocking KD out of arena @News9 @okcthunder pic.twitter.com/KGaD7jYr1f

Hat tip to those of you who took "Willie Beamen jersey" (+4000) in the "what will Russ wear to tonight's game?" prop bet. https://t.co/SgHYj9fYjh

The infamous KD/steakhouse story has been confirmed. #News9Thunder https://t.co/h4iJVJtmJt

Big buzz in the air. @SteveMcGehee & I with live reports at 6:20/6:50 & 10:20/10:50 on @NEWS9 on KD's return. @OKCThunder v @Warriors.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 11, 2017

This yr. and last, OKC has played the Warriors 3 times in the 2nd of a back2back, tonight will be the first for GS during same time period.

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 11, 2017

I just saw a guy walking his dog wearing a Thunder KD jersey. Nice to see it survived the great jersey burning of July 4, 2016.

— Lee Benson (@LeeBensonNews9) February 11, 2017

I think it's fair to say that KD gets overwhelmingly booed early. Bigger ?: does he get booed every time he touches the ball all night?
