Oooh... #FlashbackFriday pic of Stephen Curry in his "Gangsta" years.

The biggest challenge for our Dubs current road trip has our squad in Oklahoma City tonight as they face the Thunder. With our depleted roster, it’s gonna be one hell of a challenge in OKC as Kevin Durant & company look for payback after our last meeting at the Roaracle. Wariors vs Thunder: Lets do this!

How to win on the road against the best:


• Force turnovers Dubs, don't create them. 19 turnover against the Dallas Mavericks pretty much cost us the game. Create points with each possession & we can actually keep it close!

Stephen Curry's gonna have to have an incredible stat filled performance tonight on the road. Treys, assists, steals and a gang of points on the board can get this team going.

• Shock the world type mentality. Hand OKC their first loss in 5 games. How? I'm thinking miracles since we're on the road, lol but anythings possible in the NBA. (having no Andre Iguodala is gonna make a win more challenging of course) Kevin Durant is putting up some crazy numbers at the moment, if we can bring him back to earth & put some stops on key plays, keeping it close than sneaking a win would be incredible.

• Effective 3-point shooting, & lots of it from our Splash Brothers. We're ranked top dog in the NBA at 43.7 percent.

Predictions:

• Jermain O'Neal is going to be our x-factor. 15+ points and 10+ rebounds in 20-30 min off the bench, he's been tremendous off the bench.

• Insane Block Party at the Chesapeake Energy Arena courtesy of Andrew Bogut

Harrison Barnes is gonna get some serious points tonight. Most importantly, create a spark that's gonna keep this game alive if bot give OKC a run for their money. I feel like every time he's handed that ball, a nasty dunks will be the outcome!

• We're in for a treat: fast paced game, high scoring game from both squads with a lead that can go up & down.

• Games like this is when Stephen Curry will be on the highlight reel on ESPN. I'm expecting a great game from him.

• Warriors barely win by 4. C'mon, I can't predict a loss! LGW!
