The season’s second reunion between Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant did not make for a particularly close game, but it was still plenty entertaining. The Warriors beat the Thunder, 121-100, and Durant had 40 points on 16 shots. Westbrook had a triple double (a quadruple double if you count turnovers), but the…
I don’t really know what to say about this Russell Westbrook travel, except that it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen.
Tonight, the reunion the NBA has been waiting for is finally happening. That’s right, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Anthony Morrow is making his return to the Warriors arena. How did the fans react? I don’t know.
Here’s how good James Harden has been this year: Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple double over halfway through the season for the first time in over 50 years, and yet the general consensus around the NBA is that the virtual MVP award is a tossup between Harden and Westbrook.

A quiz: Who had the best buzzer-beater tonight?
This morning, a U.S. District Court judge dismissed two lawsuits involving Jameis Winston, finally ending a four-year legal saga.

“If only you could talk to the monsters,” a now-infamous review once said of the original Doom. Here’s a thought, though: what if you could fuck them?
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Stay here.
Thanks to Ryan Thibodaux’s diligent ballot tracking, we already knew that Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines (thank God) were going into the Hall of Fame this year. Now that all of the ballots have been counted, we can see if anyone else will be joining them.
Amid the arguing over this year’s Hall of Fame, one of the weirder potential results involves no argument at all. Unless there’s a dramatic and unexpected late break in the voting, Jorge Posada—who as of this afternoon appeared on 10 of 239 known ballots in the ballot tracker—is going to miss the five percent cutoff…
No offense to Al, because all that’s available to issue a draft grade on his dog is this video, but those ball-collecting skills are a major red flag.
