Oklahoma City is the wold card in the West. With the stars they have they could easily put a scare into one of the more highly thought of contenders.
And they still have some time to get things the way they want before the playoffs start.
Golden State is still the creme of the league but they have lost to OKC twice already this season. They want to stop that streak before it becomes a thing.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder opened the second half with a win at Sacramento. They had a huge first quarter then gave it all back in the second and third before winning it late. Interesting game makeup coming out of the break.
Russell Westbrook closed the first half with a triple double and then opened up the second half with one. I wonder if that has ever been done before. He has been amazing of late.
The same goes for Paul George who has scored 25 or more in seven straight games and almost had a triple double himself.
Even though this team has a lot of mouths to feed they will share the ball.
I know he gets a bad rap but is there a better third scoring option than Carmelo Anthony? He can still take over games for stretches and seems to be fitting in better all of the time.
Those three will need additional support if they are going to beat the Warriors for the third time this season. OKC won easily both times.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State won their first game out of the break but didn’t dominate against the Clippers. This game might hold more of their attention as this proud group doesn’t want to give any potential playoff opponent to confidence to think they can hang with the champs.
There was no rust on Steph Curry due to the break. He dropped 44 points on the Clippers. He barely missed from the field and dished out 10 assists as the Warriors scored 134 points.
The defense was absent though as they gave up 127. That was to a team that doesn’t have near the offensive talent of the Thunder.
The Warriors are now giving Jevale McGee some run in the starting lineup. He gives them better defense at the rim and knows that he is just there to pick up the scraps on offense.
I like the move as it makes the team way more athletic. David West is really the only big they expect points from anyway.

Of course even though the Warriors are losing the season series they are solid favourites here.
I didn’t see enough of those early games to see if there is a fatal flaw in this matchup or whether it is just one of those things.
