The return of Kevin Durant from injury will be put to the test as they face the powerhouse San Antonio Spurs in the opening game of the season. This also marks the first regular season game for new head coach Billy Donovan.
Durant missed a large portion of last season due in part to a Jones fracture early on in the 2014-15 season. After spraining an ankle just 16 days after his return, Durant underwent surgery to relieve pain in his foot which turned into a season ending surgery.
While Durant was rehabbing in the off season, the Spurs were busy being very un-Spurs like in going after the NBA’s top free agent on the market, LaMarcus Aldridge, and ending up with not only Aldridge but savvy veteran David West as well.
If you are a basketball purist, then this game will be one that you should not miss. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Oklahoma City Thunder.
