Two of the top teams in the Western Conference face off in Oakland on Saturday evening when the Golden State Warriors host the Oklahoma City Thunder at ORACLE Arena.
The Warriors have been the runaway favorite to claim a second consecutive NBA title, and are on pace to set the NBA record for most wins in a single regular season.
The Thunder are an elite team themselves, and enter this contest having won five in a row and 12 of 13. They enter this contest riding that hot streak and chasing down the top two teams in the West, while sitting comfortably in third themselves.
Oklahoma City Thunder:
The Thunder are coming off a thrilling finish in a 117-114 win over the Orlando Magic.
The team saw Russell Westbrook put together his third consecutive triple-double in the game, as the All-Star point guard posted 24 points, 19 rebounds, and 14 assists to go along with two steals.
The team won the game on a walk-off three-pointer from Kevin Durant. Thunder coach Billy Donovan elected not to call a timeout with Oklahoma gaining control of the ball with time the game tied 114-114 and enough time to hold for the last shot.
Durant carried the ball up the court and knocked down a triple to win it. He finished with 37 points on 12 of 25 shooting, knocking down 6 of 12 points from beyond the arc.
Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry has been impressing onlookers all season long, but Wednesday night’s 134-121 win over the Washington Wizards was one even he’ll want to remember.
Curry put up 51 points on 19 of 28 shooting, hitting on 11 of 16 shots from beyond the arc, adding seven rebounds, two assists, and three steals.
The Warriors also got 12 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds from Draymond Green for his second consecutive triple-double. Klay Thompson hit on 6 of 13 attempts from beyond the arc, finishing with 24 points.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The over is 5-3 in the Warriors’ last five games overall.
- The over is 6-1 in the Thunder’s last seven games overall.
- The over is 7-2 in the Thunder’s last nine games overall.
- The over is 9-5 in the Warriors’ last 14 games overall.
Free NBA Prediction:
In winning their last five games, the Thunder have put up 120.2 points per game.
That increased effort at the offensive end has come at the expense of their play on the defensive side of the ball, as seven of their last eight opponents have scored at least 100 points, with none scoring fewer than 95.
Now that defense will try to slow a transcendent Warrior offense that can shoot the ball over the top of even the best of defenses.
