OKC got their first win of the year by bullying the hapless Dubs in Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma City Thunder dominated the Golden State Warriors 120-92. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 23 points and 8 rebounds in three quarters of work before being sat out for the final quarter of the blowout.

The Warriors shot 32% from the field, 15% from beyond the arc. YIKES. Meanwhile, OKC shot 55%, and made a scorching 15 of their 32 shots from downtown.

First Half

The Thunder jumped out to an early double-digit lead despite Curry tallying 10 points and 5 boards in the first frame.

The Thunder ripped off 12 points off turnovers in the first frame, capitalizing off of several Golden State mistakes.

The second quarter wasn’t any better, as the Warriors fumbled their way through the offense.

On the other end, Oklahoma City attacked the Warriors defense with reckless impunity.

The Warriors shot 11-of-40 from the field (3-of-19 from downtown) at the half, while the Thunder cruised to 56% shooting with 30 points in the paint.

Thunder 70, Warriors 37

Second Half

D’Angelo Russell picked up two quick techs in the third quarter and his night ended with six points.

The Thunder took a 105-68 lead into the third quarter and it was pretty much a done deal from there. The Dubs fought hard in garbage time to make the score slightly more respectable; maybe they will take that energy into the next contest?

Tough night for the Dubs, eh? The Warriors will get a chance to work on their mojo tomorrow night with a quick turnaround against the New Orleans Pelicans. This young team is taking their lumps...as expected.
