Russell Westbrook is refusing to answer Kevin Durant questions

Kevin Durant went some way to justifying his summer move from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

The 2014 MVP dropped in 39 points to lead the Dubs past his old team, but while he may have made some progress in a Warriors uniform, his relationship with former teammate Russell Westbrook, or lack thereof, remains strained.

In the build-up to Thursday's game at the Oracle Arena, Durant said that he had some regrets about the way he handled his departure from the Thunder and especially about how he told Westbrook via text.

Asked before Thursday's game if he saw the comments, Westbrook declined to answer.

"Like I said in Oklahoma City, I don't know if you guys know, but I'm not answering any more Kevin questions," he said. "If you want to talk about basketball, I'm more than welcome to talk about that. But other than that," Westbrook said, gesturing that nothing else would be acceptable.

Although initially, the media seemed to blow Westbrook's reaction to KD's departure out of proportion, in light of both men's recent comments and their refusal to acknowledge each other at the game, there are definitely some lingering problems there.

KD better make his move to Oakland worth it, and the only way to do that is to win a title.
