Well, this is the early season game we have all been waiting for with the Warriors and their new star in Kevin Durant playing host to his old team in the Thunder.
Not many would have predicted that the Thunder would have the better record after 4 games, but they have yet to lose and came up with a big 85-83 road win over the L.A. Clippers in their last game.
The Thunder have gotten back on track after getting crushed at home in their season opening loss to the San Antonio Spurs by winning 3 straight.
The Warriors are also coming off a solid win crushing the Portland Trailblazers on the road 127-104.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder rank 16th in the league in points per game and 7th in opponents’ points per game.
While the Thunder did not have a good shooting night in the win over the Clippers they held L.A. to a FG% of only 39.1%.
Russell Westbrook has been a monster so far this season averaging a triple-double and in the win over the Clippers he went for 35 points with 6 rebounds and 5 assists even though he turned the ball over 10 times. He was the only player for OKC that scored in double figures for the game.
OKC has 4 players averaging in double figures with the 2 centers of Steven Adams and Enes Kanter. Victor Oladipo is the 2nd leading scorer on the team putting up an average of 15 ppg, but was only 3/11 for 9 points in the Clippers win.
The Thunder have played solid D on the season and especially in the L.A. game and they will have to do so tonight to pull off the big road upset facing a Warriors’ squad that is the highest scoring team in the league.
The Thunder have won both of their road games this season.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors rank 1st in the league in points per game, but only 26th in opponents’ points per game.
In their blowout win over the Blazers the Warriors were legit on both ends of the floor shooting a scorching FG% of 56.2% while holding Portland to 43% shooting.
Durant and reigning MVP Steph Curry combined for 48 points in the win over the Blazers, but KLay Thomson’s early season struggles continue, as h has failed to shoot at least 39% from the floor in 3 of 4 games this season including his last 2.
Durant, PF Draymond Green, and C Zaza Pachulia will have to hit the boards tonight and play good D against the OKC C duo of Adams and Kanter.
The athletic Thunder must play good perimeter D against the great shooters of the Warriors and also force turnovers. Speaking of turnovers they have to be more careful with the rock then they were in the Clippers game when they had 22 of them.
The Warriors have only played 1 game this season at home and that was the opener when they were embarrassed losing to the San Antonio Spurs 129-100.
