Warriors Take Round Three Against Thunder, Avoid Season Sweep

After an embarrassing 20-point loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this month, the Golden State Warriors dominated the Thunder with a 112-80 win. The Warriors went on a 31-7 run midway through the third quarter and never looked back, avoiding a season sweep to the Thunder.

Kevin Durant scored a game-high 28 points and Stephen Curry had 21 points, nine rebounds, and six assists. No team has beaten the Warriors three times in a season since Steve Kerr has been head coach.

Durant and Carmelo Anthony received double technical following an altercation with 2:12 left in the first half. Warriors forward Draymond Green, who leads the league in technical fouls, received his fifteenth technical foul as well. Green will be suspended one game if he gets another technical.

The Thunder struggled offensively, shooting 3-of-18 from the field to start the game and scoring a season-low 80 points.

Thunder small forward Paul George shot 0-for-9 in the first half, the worst shooting stretch in a half in his career. George finished with five points. Russell Westbrook finished with 15 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists but shot 4-of-15 from the field.
