Davis issued an apology shortly after his suspension was announced, expressing remorse for his actions and accepting the punishment doled out by the team.

Russell Westbrook turned in a remarkable performance in the Oklahoma City Thunder's final regular-season game Wednesday night, posting six points, 20 rebounds and 19 assists in a 137-123 win over the Memphis Grizzlies to finish with his second-straight season averaging a triple-double.

"Brian has been here for a while". The Thunder play Game 1 against Utah on Sunday.

"But he definitely came in and talk [ed] to us".

What's great about this first round series is that it ultimately is a fight between two teams trying to show the rest of the league that they really are relevant and that getting to the playoffs wasn't some stroke of luck.

Paul George backed up Westbrook's comments, saying the team has to move on so they can focus on the playoffs. "That was it", George told the press. He took it head on.

"We've discussed it with the announcer and let him know that". We move on. We got something bigger to focus on and be anxious about. "But again, we feel strongly that it's inappropriate and offensive".

In a statement to ESPN, Davis apologized for the comment, explaining he has been suspended for one game.

Fox Sports Oklahoma play-by-play guy Brian Davis said he accepted his one-game suspension for his "insensitive" comments.

"While unintentional, I understand and acknowledge the gravity of the situation". I offer my honest apology and realize that, while I committed a lapse in judgment, such mistakes come with consequences. "This is an appropriate outcome for my actions".
