Kerr says Warriors need Bogut in Game 5

With the Warriors on the brink of elimination, head coach Steve Kerr used Wednesday’s media session as a chance to issue an all-points bulletin on center Andrew Bogut. The Warriors trail the Thunder 3-1 in the Western Conference finals - a best-of-seven series that is being decided by effort, rebounds and defense. The Warriors have chosen to dare Andre Roberson to beat them, and the Oklahoma City shooting guard is doing it. With the Warriors sagging off the third-year player to instead double-team Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, Roberson is averaging 15 points, nine rebounds and...

Recap: Same problems push Warriors to the brink

Turnovers, fouls, and rebounding issues plagued the Warriors in similar ways to the third game of the series. The Warriors haven't looked comfortable for most of the series, and still have no answer to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, losing 118-94. But most importantly, Stephen Curry isn't whole. I'll keep this recap short. The Thunder are still killing the Warriors on the glass and racking up fouls at the rim.  Draymond Green, the foundation of the Warriors' unique small ball style, is playing the worst he's played all season.Secondary role players like Andre Roberson and Dion Waiters...

Thunder roll, push Warriors to brink of elimination

Thunder roll, push Warriors to brink of elimination The Warriors set their sights on swiping one game in Oklahoma City and regaining homecourt advantage in these Western Conference finals.

Russell Westbrook scored 36 points and Kevin Durant added 26 as the Thunder steamed to victory in Game 4, taking a 3-1 lead in the series. The Warriors absorbed consecutive losses for the first time all season, in their 96th game. Draymond Green, after dodging suspension, had another...

Russell Westbrook had some kicks of his own in past playoffs

Good news for Warriors fans with the development that Draymond Green averted a suspension for his kick of Thunder center Steven Adams. The infamous kick inspired hours of discussion and even some words from the players themselves. However, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has no right to complain about Green after he kicked Spurs forward Tim

Thunder vs Warriors, quick recap: OKC resoundingly responds with 133-105 thrashing over Golden State

The Oklahoma City Thunder bounced back in a big way after a disappointing showing in Game 2 against the Golden State Warriors. The Oklahoma City Thunder have defeated the Golden State Warriors in game 3, 133-105. Following a game 2 loss which led many to think OKC had little chance of pulling out the series, the Thunder responded with their most impressive win of the playoffs. They now take a 2-1 series lead into game 4 on Tuesday night. How did it happen? Three Andre Roberson threes! 30-plus points from Kevin Durant AND Russell Westbrook! Enes Kanter double-double! Good Dion Waiters! The...

Russell Westbrook, Draymond Green masters of the triple-double

Russell Westbrook, Draymond Green masters of the triple-double Westbrook had 18 triple-doubles in the regular season, tied for the eighth-most ever (Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain occupy the top seven spots). Green had 13 in the regular season, has one more in the playoffs, and Friday was awarded the Most Annoying Player Award by Oklahoma City center Steven Adams. While Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant might score more points for the two teams in the Western Conference finals, it’s their two teammates who are always around the ball who could well decide who breaks the 1-1 tie and...

Durant did his job, but got little help in Thunder loss

Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan stressed before Game 2 of the Western Conference finals that the key for his team was getting contributions across the board. Donovan and the Thunder will fly back to the Midwest with the series tied 1-1 and that goal still on the to-do list. Oklahoma City got its nightly big game output from Kevin Durant (29 points), but Russell Westbrook tumbled back to mortal status with a 16-point, 5-of-14 shooting game, and no one else on the Thunder managed to score more than nine in a lopsided 118-99 loss. “Obviously, with the way that Golden State played tonight,...

Warriors-Thunder Game 3 by the numbers

Record for the Warriors after losses this season, including 3-0 in the playoffs. Points for Stephen Curry in the third quarter of Game 2. Points for Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, who scored 19 in the third quarter alone in Game 1. Rebounds for the Warriors, only the second time this postseason the Thunder (36) have been outrebounded (OKC lost both). Points for the Warriors’ center tandem of Festus Ezeli (12) and Marreese Speights (13), who combined for four in Game 1. Three-point shooting by the Warriors.
