Highlights: Golden State Warriors outclass Oklahoma City Thunder in entertaining encounter

Small forward LeBron James and point guard Kyrie Irving were voted Eastern Conference All-Star starters for the first time since uniting their forces in the summer of 2014.

Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden should be a starter in the Western Conference backcourt.

Westbrook is scoring a league-best 30.6 points per game to go along with his average of 10.4 assists and 10.6 rebounds.

Last night in Oakland, OKC Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook figured out where National Basketball Association refs draw the line on traveling.

Filipino fans also attempted to vote in Los Angeles Lakers Fil-American guard Jordan Clarkson but the late push fell short.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 121-100 on Wednesday night and one player can't wait until the teams meet again in a couple of weeks time.

"I guess the limit is six steps", quipped Warriors counterpart Stephen Curry.

It's natural that the negativity against the Warriors would trickle down to current players around the league.

Dan Quinn , the head coach for the Falcons , has confirmed that there will be no shady performances during this weekend's game. The Falcons , with Ryan having his best season, led the National Football League with an average of 33.8 points per game.

Westbrook took the inbounds pass and just started walking with it, like it was just business as usual.

What does the Western Conference voting look like?

"No, I didn't see that until just now, but I don't play that game", Westbrook said postgame, explaining that he wasn't aware of Pachulia's response to the foul until seeing a replay later.

The Thunder didn't carry over its composure after halftime, strangely chucking 3-pointers - three in the first 63 seconds.

The fan vote left Russell Westbrook off the All-Star starting line up.

Joining James in the frontcourt is Chicago swingman Jimmy Butler (third selection, 24.8 average) and Milwaukee standout Giannis Antetokounmpo (23.6 points, 8.7 rebounds). Now, fans get 50 percent of the vote with players responsible for 25 percent and select media members making up for the remaining 25 percent. However, the players had 25 percent of the vote and they had Westbrook and Harden in the back court. But, the idea that a player with this production is not starting in the All-Star Game is still a bit ridiculous. He finished as the top vote-getter at his respective position among all three voting groups.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be well represented at next month's NBA All-Star Game at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The game will reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages.
