Warriors vs. Thunder Details
Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
The Warriors and Thunder are regularly two of the best teams in the Western Conference, but it’s fair to say that the budding rivalry between the two teams is centered around one player: Kevin Durant.
Durant was drafted second overall by the Thunder in 2007 (back when they were still the Seattle Supersonics). He and teammate Russell Westbrook blossomed into two of the best players in basketball, and the Thunder made several deep playoff runs, including a trip to the NBA Finals in 2012, where they ultimately lost to the LeBron James-era Miami Heat.
Durant played nine seasons for the Thunder before leaving as a free agent to sign with the Warriors. The Warriors were coming off a record-setting 73 win season, and adding Durant made them instant championship favorites. Even without Durant, though, the Thunder were still a competitive team in the Western Conference. Russell Westbrook was the NBA’s MVP in the 2016-17 season and averaged a triple double for the year.
When Durant joined the Warriors, he joined an already stacked lineup that included Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Though the Warriors’ regular season record didn’t match their record-breaking 73 wins from the year before, they won 15 consecutive games in the playoffs and lost only once in the NBA finals en route to the NBA Championship title, the first of Durant’s career
The Warriors have had the edge in this matchup since Kevin Durant came over from OKC, but the Thunder have added some additional talent for the 2017 season. Paul George and Carmelo Anthony have joined reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, and the Thunder will try to give the Warriors a run for their money in the Western Conference.
Historic Thunder vs. Warriors Games
Durant’s Last Game with the Thunder: The Thunder made a deep playoff run in Kevin Durant’s last season with the team: they took the top-seed Warriors to a game seven in the Western Conference Finals. The Warriors, who at one point trailed three games to one in the series, won the game 96-88 and advanced to the Finals.
Durant’s First Game Back in OKC: After the Warriors won the first two games (both in Oakland) of the season series against the Thunder, Kevin Durant made his return to Oklahoma City and played his first game as an opponent at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Though Durant attracted some boos from his old hometown crowd, he played a dominant game and scored 34 points. The Warriors’ depth proved to be too much to handle for the Thunder, even though Russell Westbrook scored 47 points in the game. The Warriors won the game 130-114.
