Oklahoma City Thunder vs Golden State Warriors Preview

If they were to overcome the Denver Nuggets, the Warriors needed a big scoring effort from somewhere. Who else then, then two-time MVP point guard Stephen Curry - 53 points on 14-of-24 shooting - to pass Wilt Chamberlain for the most in franchise history. On the achievement, the 33-year-old said:

"To be anywhere near him in any record book or now be on top, it's surreal and it's wild. If you grow up in the game of basketball and you hear his name, you know it's something extremely special, no matter what it is."

Draymond Green had a season-high 18 points, alongside seven assists and joint game-high four steals (alongside Facundo Campazzo). Simultaneously, SF duo Andrew Wiggins and Kent Bazemore provided scoring help despite shooting less than 50% from the field. 

They were 116-107 winners in the end, against a Denver side who saw their championship aspirations take a considerable hit after starting guard Jamal Murray injured his left knee in the final minute, landing awkwardly as he drove to the basket through traffic. 

An MRI determined he tore his ACL in his left knee, an injury that will sideline him for the remainder of 2021 and potentially beyond. He was averaging career-highs in points (21.2), FG% (47.7), 3P% (40.8) and steals (1.3). 

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Golden State Warriors Betting Tips

Steve Kerr described the victory as a "big game" for Golden State, who have a chance to "get on a little run" in the first of a five-game road trip in Oklahoma overnight. With Curry playing like this, why not? 

James Wiseman (meniscus), Kelly Oubre Jr (wrist) are both sidelined, though that doesn't compare with OKC's injury list. Highly-rated small forward Luguentz Dort made history with a 42-point effort, despite their 106-96 road defeat in Utah overnight. It goes without saying that he needs more help, so I'm backing a Warriors win here.
