Kevin Durant's first game against the Oklahoma City Thunder was certainly a heated encounter.

He went head-to-head with Russell Westbrook and engaged in a back and forth with Enes Kanter, who spent most of the game on the Thunder bench.

Durant showed out against his former teammates, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 122-96 win. The 2014 MVP has not had much to say on his altercation with Kanter since the game at Oracle Arena, joking that the Swiss center would probably 'say something on Twitter'.

The 24-year-old has not taken to social media to continue the war of words but took a jab at KD when talking to the media about Russell Westbrook.

After Durant's switch to Oakland, Westbrook has assumed the role of leader in the Thunder dressing room but Kanter insists the point guard was the leader last season.

According to Fred Kratz, Kanter said: "He's the leader of this team this year, and last year." Before he yelled back, "I had to say it!"

It's going to be some time before the Thunder lock horns with the Warriors again. January 19 (18th in the US) is the next meeting between the two organisations, but the one we are all looking forward to is the only meeting in Oklahoma this season on February 12 (11th).
