Remember when Russell Westbrook vowed to get revenge for Zaza Pachulia knocking him to the ground and standing over him?
Well, tonight will not be the night when that happens as Pachulia remains out with a right rotator cuff strain, according to Warriors PR.

That subplot is pretty much the only drama that could have made this game even spicier.
Anyway, that means JaVale McGee will start once again, which can be fun if he keeps getting oops like the Klay Thompson gave him last night.

Let's hope this one lives up to the hype after months of anticipation about Kevin Durant's return to OKC.
