Oklahoma City Thunder's Latest Performance :
The Thunder are coming off a loss against the Kings as they ruined Westbrook return to the team. He finished with 29 points and grabbed 13 boards and dished out 7 dimes. Paul George scored 27 points but shot poorly from the floor hitting 9-of-24. He has now scored at least 27 points in each of his last four games, over the last two he’s just 18-of-46 from the field. In the first two games of this run, he shot a combined 24-of-41. He will be looking to have an efficient night against the Warriors since he will be matched up with Kevin Durant. Both teams are coming off a loss but the Thunder are a better team in the these last few weeks winning eight of their last ten games. With Russ return means Schroder will be sent back to the bench as he scored only six points in 29 minutes played. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot is making his way back into the Thunder rotation he scored 11 points against the Kings as he will play a factor against the Warriors on the road.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors are hoping to snap their three-game losing streak against the Thunder. All eyes will be on Kevin Durant in this game as he is going up against his old team and the Warriors are still without their leader Stephen Curry. The Warriors really miss his presence on the floor because he is the difference maker on the team. Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson is the only two scorer on the team without Curry on the floor. Durant in his last time out was held to 8-of-25 shooting for 26 points. He has been living at the free-throw line lately but he’s out of rhythm from downtown he made 1-of-8 tonight and is a combined 1-of-17 over the past four games. He is hoping to heat up from distance against the Thunder. The Warriors don’t need to panic because there is plenty of basketball left to played and they are still champions. Playing against the Thunder with Westbrook returning after missing six games should be a great game.
