The Warriors made their return to Oracle Arena for a pre-season game that had some big buzz and a big win.

The Clippers took on the Dubs and for the first time, Warriors fans had a chance to see Kevin Durant sport blue and yellow. The Warriors beat the Clippers 120-75 and fans are hoping this is a preview of things to come.

He had them at hello. From the moment he stepped on the court, Kevin Durant was the focus of most everyone inside Oracle Arena.

It was his home debut, and Warriors fans were more than ready to welcome him.

"It's really hard to believe Kevin Durant, a superstar, has come to join this team with two or three other superstars on this team," said Warriors fan Maxwell Dixon.

"I'm really excited to see the new product out here on the floor, Mr. KD, Kevin Durant," said Warriors fan Bobby King.

In fact, Durant gear and his number 35 have taken over a sizeable portion of the Warriors team store and to say it's a hot seller is an understatement.

Durant's home debut happened to arrive on Steph Curry bobblehead night, the first 10,000 fans received the coveted dolls, prompting people to line up hours before tip-off.

The nearly 7-foot tall forward is of course the most celebrated addition to this year's team, one already loaded with talent, prompting some pretty bold predictions about the season ahead.

"Eighty wins, 80 wins," said one fan.
