OAKLAND- Much like one of Steph Curry's shimmies, the Golden State Warriors shook the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Two of the Western Conference Finals, final score 118-91 Golden State.
The Western Finals are now tied at one game a piece, and the Warriors have reminded the world why they hold the best regular-season record in NBA history.
With the Warriors took a seven point lead into the locker room at halftime, and then they ran away with it in the third, off into the California sunset. There was no looking back in the fourth.
The Thunder held a lead of one point for a grand total of 12 seconds in the second quarter of game two.
Unlike game one, Kevin Durant was able to turn it on, but it was clearly not enough, as he led the Thunder with 29 points and six assists. But Stephen Curry got his hot hand back too, the MVP dropping 28 points (5-8 three pointers) in Wednesday's shellacking.
The Warriors beat the Thunder at their own game, perhaps most importantly, dominating the glass. Golden State out-rebounded the best rebounding team in the NBA, 45-36 (15-7 in offensive boards). The Warriors consequently led the Thunder 15-5 in second chance points.
Game Three is Sunday in Oklahoma City.
