Steph Curry, Semaj Christon Scuffle in OKC

  • Steph Curry, Semaj Christon Scuffle in OKC

With both sides preparing for a jump ball, Curry and Oklahoma City guard Semaj Christon began jockeying for position, and when things got physical, Westbrook jumped in.

With Gibson standing in the middle of it all, playing peacemaker with his arms around Curry, coaches and security personnel from both teams stepped onto the court to separate the players.

The first game of the season between Golden State and Oklahoma City had Russell Westbrook vs. Kevin Durant, photography outfits and a blowout. It was Westbrook's 15th technical of the season. Klay Thompson fired his way to a game-high 34 points on 12-21 shooting from the field; Stephen Curry led the vanguard with 23 points of his own. "Just one of those nights", he said. He made just four of 16 shots en route to 15 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and five turnovers. "Westbrook kind of gets a head of steam and gets going when Zaza's in the pick-and-roll".

"I was running so fast, I felt like Usain Bolt", Harden said of his electrifying late break effort that clinched victory with 4.2 seconds on the clock. When order was restored, Curry drilled a three-pointer at the buzzer.

"We lost Thompson a few times in transition", Donovan said. Green's technical was his 13th of the season. I don't know. Nothing surprises me at this point when it comes to anything like that.

Fred Katz is the Thunder beat writer for the Norman Transcript and CNHI Oklahoma as well as the host of the Locked on Thunder podcast. "So I don't see a problem with people watching", LeBron said. "If I'm anywhere in the area, I expect it". It's about Pachulia's iron screen on Westbrook earlier this season that prompted the OKC guard vow revenge.

Just 10 months back, the Thunder had the 73-win Warriors on the brink of extinction, up 3-1 in the West Finals and looking like the better team.

Curry and Thunder shooting guard Victor Oladipo exchanged bumps under the Warriors' basket only minutes before the jump ball.

I don't often comment on other teams, especially since I don't follow them closely enough to draw farsighted conclusions from their play, but the Thunder stand out as a team that could be so much more than the sum of their parts if they had a few more shooters and weren't so reliant on hero ball. While he didn't pull down the rebound, he was able to tip the loose balls out to Thompson, who made the Thunder pay with several shots from behind the arc. Klay Thompson is leading the way with 18 points, but Steph Curry is right behind him with 17 - including this dagger right as time expired in the second quarter.
