Oklahoma City did something only two other teams have done in 2016. They went to Oracle Arena and beat the Golden State Warriors 108-102.

The win gives them a 1-0 series lead in the Western Conference Finals.

Russell Westbrook overcame a brutal first half that saw him go one of eight from the floor, and three points turn into a game high 27. He scored 19 in the third quarter alone.

Not only that, but Westbrook added 7 steals.

The Thunder allowed 51 percent shooting in the first half only to stifle Golden State in the 2nd half. The Warriors shot 36 percent including 23 percent from deep only scoring 42 points.

Kevin Durant iced the game in the 4th with a tough jumper from the elbow, but he struggled in the final stanza. He was just one for his last eight when he hit the shot. He hit it when it counted though giving OKC 26 points.

The Thunder trailed by 13 at the half which was due in large part to them turning the ball over 10 times. They finished the game with just 11 turnovers.

Steven Adams proved to be OKC's most efficient player scoring 16 points and grabbing 12 boards. He was plus 19.

The win is the first time in franchise history the Thunder have won a game one on the road. They were previously 0-12.

Game two is Wednesday night in Oakland at 8pm as the Thunder look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead.
