Durant, Westbrook Preview Game vs. Celtics

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON, Massachusetts -

Back in November, the last time OKC and Boston met, former Oklahoma State star Marcus Smart scored 26 points in the Celtics 100-85 victory.

Smart also held Russell Westbrook to just 5-of-20 shooting.

"[Smart is] a terrific competitor,” said Kevin Durant. “He plays hard, a little guy that can defend every, you know, three positions. So, I got my work cut out for me. I've been looking forward to it. I've been watching this team a lot and they're scrappy, they play hard, they love their coach, they love their system, especially in this building they play with a lot of energy."

As for whether Westbrook has taken notice that Smart is an Oklahoma kid that’s now starting at the three for the Celtics, he says he hasn’t because he’s been too busy trying to figure out how to better his team moving forward towards the playoffs.

After the passing of his brother, Dion Waiters will rejoin the team for the matchup.

"Well I think it’s good but obviously with everything he's been through right now from an emotional standpoint [and] a physical standpoint, he hasn't done anything physically at all,” said Head Coach Billy Donovan. “He worked out a little bit yesterday, so it’s going to take him a little bit of time to get back."

Game time is set for 6:00 p.m.The game will be broadcast on SNE, FSOK and ESPN.
