Durant has finally entered into the fray between the former Oklahoma City Thunder stars....and it is not the one you may have thought. Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Durant, the brother of Kevin Durant, appears to have something against his brother’s ex-teammate, Russell Westbrook.

Tony Durant was on Twitter Thursday night talking about triple-doubles at the same time that Westbrook was locking down his 34th triple-double of the season. Tony appeared to be throwing some shade at Westbrook with these tweets:

Westbrook scored 24 points with 16 assists and 10 rebounds for his fourth consecutive triple-double. Oklahoma City meanwhile put together an impressive 123-102 win over the Toronto Raptors. The win made OKC 39-29 on the season, which has them a half-game behind the Clippers for fifth in the conference. That’s not bad at all for a team that lost Durant to the Golden State Warriors.

Stats may not be everything, but the Thunder are now 28-6 when Westbrook has a triple-double. That seems to be a pretty good indication that his strong all-around play results in Thunder wins. If Tony has something against Russ, it would make sense given that Westbrook has thrown some shade at Durant in the past.
