Russell Westbrook, Steph Curry Mix It Up During Warriors-Thunder Fight

It was a game that was competitive initially but ceased to be after Oklahoma City lost contact against Golden State's reserve unit, a lineup that typically doesn't score in bunches. He shot 37.5 percent overall with 8.0 turnovers per game against Golden State this season. The Thunder and Warriors could meet in the second round of the playoffs, so OKC needed to know they could win.

Thompson poured in 34 points on 12-of-21 shooting.

The offense, so good these last few games, betrayed the Thunder. "It's as simple as knocking them down".

The Warriors, though, would have the last laugh as Curry drained an open 3 at the buzzer and ran towards the locker room.

Two weeks ago, Steve Kerr chose to rest Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala in a nationally televised showcase game against the Spurs.

Oklahoma City's Victor Oladipo scored a team-high 17 points, but Russell Westbrook had a subpar night.

The Thunder preferred to play Enes Kanter down the stretch, partially due to garbage time, but also because he was the better performer on the day with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

"It was just one of those nights", Westbrook said. "By all means, we can't go around them or go on the side of them". With Westbrook guarding him, he dropped in 11 points in the first quarter. That seemed to fall right into the Warriors' game plan.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may limit Gabon involvement for Dortmund
The win consolidated third spot in the table for Dortmund, who are three points adrift of RB Leipzig and four clear of Hoffenheim. After good work by Marcel Schmelzer on the left, Aubameyang confidently prodded Schmelzer's cross past Martin Hansen.

With Kevin Durant seated on the bench, healthy enough to travel with the team but not quite healthy enough to take the floor, some of the drama surrounding the final regular season matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder was supposed to dissipate. Both Westbrook and Curry needed be held back as Draymond Green joined the scuffle. "Once I see something going down with my teammates, I'm hopping in". "That's what was going through my mind".

Outside of Klay, Steph, and JaVale, not a single other Warrior was in double figures, and the Dubs won by 16.

Bounding up the court after the ball-up, Curry perched himself just beyond the three-point arc. As soon as it went through the net, he sprinted off the court with Golden State leading 59-39.

The lead eventually climbed to 27 before the fourth quarter filled with bench players. "Don't underestimate my arm".

There were other moments when things turned testy, suggesting that these teams are competing beyond the game. He really did not look back. Westbrook got knocked in the face inadvertently a couple of times.

It was McGee who turned the tide with his work on the offensive glass.

Klay Thompson fetched the ball as it headed out of bounds, flung it to Curry who calmly potted the shot. It's abundantly clear that team is the Oklahoma City Thunder. "We knew it", said Thomas. Like fans buying tickets, they are shelling out a lot of money for these games only to find out they are not getting the product they thought they were purchasing. He just got his hand on the ball and created extra deflections for us.
