Thunder Beats The Warriors By 28
OKC Thunder destroyed the Spurs and is already making another team suffer, and plenty, the Warriors. The West Finals traveled to Oklahoma and Billy Donovan squad had no pity for the rival, whom they crushed unceremoniously by winning 133-105 to get ahead 2-1.
And it could have been worse. Thunder broke the game in a fantastic second quarter, but had warned of his power in the first. In the third, they massacred more Californians and last, the basketball powerhouse lifted his foot off the accelerator. If it had not, the final advantage would not have been ‘only’ 28 points.
They had never received such a corrective lesson this season, Steve Kerr’s squad . A very hard beating in a conference finals. A real drubbing in which no one was spared, not even Stephen Curry (24 points) and Klay Thompson (18), who were the top scorers for Golden State.
On the far side, in the negative, Draymond Green. The visitor power forward had to be sent off in the second quarter after giving Steven Adams a kick in the genitals, was deranged and off-site throughout the match. This included a mindless foul that cost his team 3 points before the break and frankly poor performance from start to finish.
Durant and Westbrook crushed
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were at odds with Green. Between the two totaled 63 points, 16 rebounds and 14 assists. They dominated the court at will. The forward finished with 33 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks. He was almost infallible. The point guard made 30 goals, 12 assists and 8 rebounds. They totaled 20 of 34 in shooting from the field and 21 of 23 free. They had no opposition.
With that momentum, its two local stars, gained 13 points during the first quarter (28-15), but Warriors recovered. It was a warning, because in the second act a 38-19 took the game to halftime with a resounding 72-47 after the break, and a 13-0 finish.
In addition to Durant and Westbrook, Serge Ibaka good game of -14 points, 8 rebounds and a tremendous mate in the first act, his best period- and Dion Waiters in the first part, Enes Kanter (double in 18 minutes) and Andre Roberson.
