Last night, the Golden State Warriors defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 111-95, sweeping the four game season series against the Thunder. Stephen Curry finished with twenty-three points on 8-17 shooting from the field and 7-12 from the three-point line. Klay Thompson exploded for thirty-four points on an efficient 12-21 from the field and 7-15 from the three point line. Javale McGee also had a good game adding in ten points and five rebounds of his own in just thirteen minutes of play.
The Golden Warriors have now defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder by an average of fifteen points in each of the four meetings this season and have led by at least twenty-five points at one point of the game in each of the four games. With 5.6 seconds to go in the first half, Stephen Curry and Semaj Christon engaged in a shoving match, fighting for position on a jump ball. Curry’s teammates immediately jumped in to protect the reigning MVP from any injury and possibly prevent Curry from throwing punch, which would lead him to being ejected from the game. As soon as everything was sorted out and the balls was jumped up from the Thunder foul line, Klay Thompson immediately grabbed the ball before it headed out of bounce and quickly tossed it ahead to Curry who then hit a three-point shot at the buzzer, ending the first half. Curry quickly ran off the court to the locker room as both the Thunder and their fans were still processing as to what they just witnessed. All I got to say is Stephen Curry and the team have officially gotten their swagger back and they have gotten back at the right time. Catch the next Warriors game as they head to Dallas to take on Harrison Barnes and the Mavericks. Tip-off is at 5 p.m.PT/8 p.m.ET on CSN Bay Area.
