okc on steph.jpgRussell Westbrook led his team to a game one victory over the Golden State Warriors. Four of the Thunder starting five had a double-double. Stephen Curry neared a triple-double for the Warriors, but was the only player on Golden State who had a double-double. Kevin Durant played a whopping 46 minutes! At the end of the first half the Warriors had a lead 60-47, but the Thunder came back and the Warriors only led by three at the end of the third quarter. With 2:08 to go in the fourth Harrison Barnes cut an OKC lead to one, but the Thunder went on a 7-2 run to close out the game. Steph Curry finished with a playoff career-high for rebounds with 10. Oklahoma City shot 47% from three to a Golden State 36%. Westbrook had 19 third quarter points. “We just stayed with it on the defensive end and when we got the shots late in the game we were able to focus in and knock  then down,” Durant said. “We’re just a resilient group and keep fighting  ’til the end.””We got rushed and tried to go for the home-run plays. Sometimes it works,” Curry said. “Defensively we were getting enough stops and rebounds. We got out of character a little bit. It’s something we’ll learn from going forward.” Game two is at Oracle arena on Wednesday.
