The Oklahoma City Thunder are starting with their full squad post All-Star break.

Russell Westbrook has returned after missing 27 games due to arthroscopic knee surgery on his right knee.

The Thunder are hosting the Miami Heat in a potential finals preview.

At the half the Heat are leading 54-47.

Westbrook has played 13 minutes, tallying 11 points (3-6 fg), 3 steals, 2 rebounds, 1 assists and two turnovers.

Westbrook’s first bucket was a two-handed dunk on a fast break.

In 25 games Westbrook has averaged 21.3 points, 7 assists, 1.8 steals, and 4 turnovers a game.

Westbrook was originally injured during the first round last season against the Houston Rockets, but had to undergo surgery again this season.

Kevin Durant has just 9 points on 4-11 shooting in the half.

LeBron James ended the half with 21 points on 10-13 shooting.
