It started when Kevin Durant made the classy move, getting introduced first so Russell Westbrook could be the final pregame introduction — and the crowd goes wild.
After that Westbrook’s knee looked fine and he looked like his old aggressive self. He was rusty, missing some shots (5-of-16 from the floor) but he ended the night with 21 points and seven dimes. More importantly, the Thunder offense just looked better with Westbrook as a second option, you can see the team that is going to be tough to knock off in the West in there.

The Dallas Mavericks are looking for a center— desperately at times, they brought JaVale McGee into training camp to get a look. They will start Zaza Pachulia and behind him it’s probably Samuel Dalembert once he gets healthy.
Which is why Dallas may be the team interested in Larry Sanders — Mark Cuban is a guy known for giving second chances in the league. But there have been no talks, yet, reports Tim MacMahon at ESPN.
Multiple Mavs sources say they have nothing brewing with Larry Sanders. But they'd be in front of line if he wanted to play ball again.
