OKC Runs Past Golden State, Continues Dominance Of NBA Contenders

, ,

Tuesday night’s win over Golden State shows just how good OKC can be.


OAKLAND – Did you hear the Thunder a few nights ago! It happened late Tuesday night after OKC’s win against the Warriors, 125-105. It’s the second time that the Thunder have dominated the Warriors and, this time, they did it on the road … and without Andre Roberson (knee) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle).

Russell Westbrook and Paul George led the Thunder with a combined 72 points. Westbrook dished out 9 assists, and George was locked-in defensively with 6 steals.

The Thunder limited the Warriors to 28% shooting from beyond the arc, forced 25 turnovers, and had a 38-12 advantage in points-off-turnovers. The Warriors never led.

“Tonight, we put a full game together,” Carmelo Anthony said after the game. “It was clicking on all cylinders, offensively, defensively, I mean we put it together every game like that we’re a tough team to beat.”

The Thunder are 5-0 with a 16.6 average victory margin v. the Cavs, Raptors, Rockets, and Warriors.

OKC now stands 5th in the West, 3 games behind the Spurs. If the Thunder can continue playing like they did Tuesday night in Oakland, there’s no telling how far this team can go.
