The Thunder got a step up on the NBA regular season record setters and will now look for a win in Game 4 as they try to take complete control of the series.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Not too many people were giving the Oklahoma City Thunder a chance against the Spurs last round. Almost nobody was giving them a chance against the Golden State Warriors here.
The Thunder absolutely obliterated the Warriors in Game 3, en route to a 133-105 victory.
Oklahoma City did everything right in the win. They turned every bad pass or quick shot into a transition bucket the other way.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both dominated, as what usually happens when the Thunder win. The duo combined for 63 points, 16 rebounds and 14 assists. If they’re putting up numbers like this, there is no chance of slowing this team down.
Oklahoma City will also look to repeat their free throw story as they were 33 of 37 in Game 3.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State went back to their Game 1 ways.
They continued to rush shots, turn the ball over, and allow the Thunder to do pretty much anything they wanted on both ends of the floor.
The Warriors do know a thing or two about being down 2-1 though. Golden State went down 2-1 twice in last year’s postseason, one of which included the NBA Finals. This team has plenty of players who have been through just about everything so there is no reason to panic just yet.
However, Draymond Green may want to worry a bit. Green gave a kick to the groin of Steven Adams in the 2nd quarter and received a flagrant one. While he said he wasn’t intentional by any means after the game, the tape certainly says otherwise. The league has yet to comment on it. A suspension of him would certainly hurt the morale and lose the Warriors one of the biggest parts of their team.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
Golden State isn’t in a must win spot, but going down 3-1 is not something they want to endure against Westbrook and Durant.
Look for Golden State to do what they did in Game 2, by not rushing shots and taking care of the ball.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Warriors -1
The low number is worth a play here. Golden State has more experience and still more talent despite their Game 3 struggles.
