Round two of the two most prolific offenses in all of basketball didn’t disappoint. However, the Thunder let one slip away losing 121-118 to the Golden State Warriors in overtime.
Reigning MVP Steph Curry overcame an ankle injury in the third quarter to score 46 points, tie the NBA single game record for three pointers made with 12, and then break his own record for most three pointers in a season.
His game winner he hit from 32 feet out leaving just six tenths of a second remaining.
Russell Westbrook couldn’t connect on a game tying triple on the other end in overtime ensuring the three point loss. Westbrook played great though scoring 26 points, adding 13 assists and seven boards.
Kevin Durant played to his MVP form scoring a team high 37 points and hauling in 12 rebounds. However, with the Thunder leading by two with under 10 seconds to play, Durant turned the ball, the Warriors snagged it up, Andre Iguodala shot as time expired trying to tie it, but he missed and a foul was called on KD. It sent the game to overtime and helped Durant foul out in the first minute of the bonus session.
Klay Thompson scored 32 for the Warriors despite not hitting anything behind the arc until the fourth quarter. He hit a crucial and one layup in OT which tied the game at 118, before Curry’s incredible game winning three.
Six Thunder players finished in double figures including Serge Ibaka who had 15 points and 20 rebounds. In fact, the Thunder out rebounded Golden State by 30, 62-32.
The loss means Oklahoma City has lost four of their last five games since the all-star break. Next up, the Thunder they face Sacramento on Monday in California.
