Warriors vs Thunder aired on February 27, 2016.
Durant’s first block on Westbrook wasn’t really a block. On replay, it didn’t appear as though KD got much, if any, of the ball. But it looked fun and exciting in real time, and of course it fit the storyline coming in.
King Joffrey did some nice things out there. Shot with confidence. Moved his feet and rotated well on D. Ran the floor hard. Rebounded well. Hit the open man. Pleasant surprise, particularly given the game’s magnitude and the fact that he’s never experienced something like it, at least in the NBA. There’s clearly some real skill and versatility there. Looking forward to watching him as the season progresses.
Man, those two fouls on Curry 3-pointers midway through the second really hurt…and the Thunder fouling Golden State on 3-pointers looked awfully familiar.
The Thunder needed to do a better job of defensive rebounding in this one. It wasn’t terrible. But it was bad enough that it coupled with so many other things in contributing to the eventual rout. Golden State had 16 offensive boards, which led to 23 second-chance points. You can’t give an explosive offense that many second and third opportunities. The Warriors came up with seven offensive rebounds in the second quarter. They led to 12 points. The Thunder scored 11 points total in the second period.
Marv Albert after KD’s 3 with four minutes left in the second that came off a behind-the-back feed from Curry: “They are not enjoying this in Oklahoma City.” You got that right, Marv. Warriors 58, Thunder 41. And the house was now on fire.
What do you know? Marv mistook Grant for Morrow late in the second. That’s three cases of mistaken identity according to my count. All in the first half.
Durant’s second block on Russ was sketchy, too. Draymond Green swatted it first, then KD came and threw it out of bounds as it lingered in the air. Still, nice play and incredible sequence for the storyline.
Green got the most predictable T in NBA history following the double rejection. It was hard to tell what he did, but one Warrior could be heard screaming “Get that s*** out of here.” Can’t tell if it was Green or Durant. Making the penalty more confusing is the ref farthest from the play appears to have called the technical, not the ref who stood two feet from Green.
