Through 3 Quarters

The Golden State Warriors were the heavy favorites here for a reason. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Oklahoma City Thunder as the Dubs lead 87-58.

Point guard Stephen Curry (20 points) has been the top scorer for the Warriors. Oklahoma City has enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and shooting guard Luguentz Dort. The former has 15 points in addition to five rebounds, while the latter has 14 points.

This is the least points OKC has had yet this season going into the fourth quarter.

What to Know

After a three-game homestand, the Oklahoma City Thunder will be on the road. They will take on the Golden State Warriors at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Chase Center after having had a few days off. Oklahoma City hasn’t won a contest against Golden State since Nov. 25 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought.

OKC was able to grind out a solid win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, winning 123-115. The Thunder were down 41-19 at the end of the first quarter, but the squad rallied to mount a comeback. They relied on the efforts of shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who shot 5-for-11 from downtown and finished with 27 points, five dimes and nine rebounds, and power forward Darius Bazley, who had 20 points along with six boards.

Meanwhile, the Warriors fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 104-101. The Dubs were up 37-20 at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. The losing side was boosted by point guard Stephen Curry, who had 36 points and eight assists in addition to seven boards.

The Thunder are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Oklahoma City’s opponents whenever they hit the road.

Oklahoma City’s victory lifted them to 1-4 while Golden State’s loss dropped them down to 4-1. We’ll see if Oklahoma City can repeat their recent success or if the Warriors bounce back and reverse their fortune.
