Thunder prove they can beat anyone without KD in win over Spurs

Christmas Day was a great example of who the Thunder are. Impressive with Russell Westbrook and dangerous when role players Steven Adams, Serge Ibaka et all chip in.

Westbrook mishaps lead to Thunder loss against Pelicans

If there are Russell Westbrook haters still out there among us, this game was for you. By now, such a person likely doesn't exist, but even the Westbrook supporters, and there are plenty of those around would admit Sunday wasn't much of a resume-builder for Westbrook.
