OKLAHOMA CITY —
The players had to be separated and Durant had to calm Westbrook down. That was not enough to pick up the energy level for the rest of the team. Even though the two teams combined for five technical fouls, it was a one-sided fight.
“It wasn’t a dirty foul,” Carroll said. “He had just hit six points. I was trying to stop him. That’s what defensive people do. You don’t let him keep getting a rhythm. I fouled him, but I don’t think it was a flagrant foul. I guess cause the crowd got into it, they had to call a flagrant.”
