Many die hard basketball fans would never consider the lengthy NBA veteran Kevin Durant a cupcake, but on his first visit back to Oklahoma City he received that reception, Cupcake, cupcake, cupcake.   

The Golden State Warriors put on a clinic last night as they walk away with a win 130.-114 on Saturday night.  Every Durant touch elicited boos and every missed shot cheers from the crowd became hackneyed. 

Durant ended the night with 34 points, 9 rebounds and three assists.  While Russell Westbrook didn’t do bad himself chipping in 47 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists.  Steph Curry added, 26 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists.

New York Giants bye week is spent and its back to business as usual, with Big Blue facing the Philadelphia Eagles next week after the eagles had an impressive outing on Sunday night versus the Dallas Cowboys. 

The Giants are in a pretty good position in the NFC East after a lackluster start of the season. 

This is not a rare position for the Giants who found themselves in the same position last season before tanking the rest of the season limping through the remainder of the season 2-7 over the final games.   Fans are hoping for a better turn of events for the current season, with a deep receiver roster and QB with an itchy trigger finger. 

Most of Big Blue nation are confident this season will see the Giants land in the playoffs.   And if today’s record were the deciding factor, New York would be in 6th place.
