The Thunder were coming into Game 3 against the Warriors on a terrible loss that they had to sit with for days. The Thunder also knew that they were coming back home to a Chesapeake Energy Arena ready to erupt. The Thunder came out with a huge burst of energy as KD and Westbrook wanted to impact the game early. The person that impacted the game the most was Draymond Green when he kicked Steven Adams in the groin area. The play was reviewed by the referees and at this point Golden State was trying to gain some momentum to climb back in the game but it was ruled a flagrant 1.

That play right there shifted the game and it was able to propel the Thunder to this victory. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 63 points tonight. Russell Westbrook was locked in from the start of the game and was unguardable. Westbrook was only 2 rebounds away from his first triple double of the postseason this year. Kevin Durant was able to do anything he wanted on the court without hesitation. Andre Roberson played a huge roll and has been on a good streak as of late. His teammates are finding him in his sweet spot and he’s making the Golden State Warriors pay for leaving him wide open. Andre Roberson had 13 points tonight but he was able to be a pest on the defensive end as well. Kevin and Russ told the media “We trust Andre ” and that trust has been showing out of all the players lately. The Warriors had no answer for the Thunder’s flurry of runs in the 2 quarter and beyond. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 42 points and weren’t able to get anything going as OKC shut down the bench players.

The Thunder were able to get to the line 37 times compared to the Warriors 25 times. Warriors actually shot 4 free throws in the first half. The Thunder came out a lot more aggressive and were able to make sure that OKC went into Game 4 with a series lead. The Thunder are finally getting help from their supporting cast and with them being able to step up to the plate and help Durant and Westbrook theres no stopping OKC.

Going into Game 3 the Thunder were the underdogs and their okay with that because they’ve been counted out all season. They will have a strangle hold on this series if they can take care of business in Game 4 on Tuesday.
