Despite 19 3rd quarter points from Klay Thompson the Oklahoma City Thunder have taken game 4 and are on the verge of advancing to the NBA finals. Steph Curry & Draymond Green in particular have been playing well below the level they were able to consistently reach throughout the regular season. Green had as many turnovers as points and was -30 whilst on the floor, a blessing in disguise he was not suspended perhaps? Curry for the second straight game shot 20% from behind the 3 point line and was relatively ineffective. Meanwhile OKC have continued to roll, they have no beaten the 67 win spurs & have just handed the 73 win warriors their first back to back loss of the season.
Kevin Durant was everywhere defensively with 3 blocks & 4 steals, as well as chiming in with timely buckets. Russell Westbrook was unstoppable with another triple double (36/11/11). GSW have no one that can guard him, neither did the spurs, and for what its worth neither do the Cavs. If the Warriors are eliminated it means we will have a first time NBA champion in June. With the supporting cast now stepping up around these two stars OKC have become the favourites to add that golden patch to the back of their jersey and hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy.
