Well, the day we’ve been waiting for since the 4th of July when Kevin Durant announced he would be joining the Golden State Warriors is finally here.
Its the Warriors against the Thunder, super team vs one man team, beauties vs the beast, will the warriors and their sleek ball movement win or will the one-man wrecking crew that is the Beastbrook prevail? Basically its gonna be lit.
The Warriors come into this game on a three win streak, with their 127 -104 beatdown of the Portland Trailblazers the most recent, the Warriors haven’t looked like the force they were at the start of last season but it looks like it’s all coming together now. The Thunder however are unbeaten this season with a 4-0 record and they’ll be hoping to make it 5-0 when they face the warriors.
Last night, the Thunder relied on their superstar for an 85-83 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, as Westbrook finished with 35 points, no other Thunder player finished in double figures for scoring as the closest to him was Victor Oladipo with 9 points. Would they be able be to let Westbrook carry the entire load against a team with four All-Stars and still win? Unlikely.
Let’s not forget the battle within the war, former teammates/brothers turn foes, Kevin Durant vs Russell Westbrook.
The game tips off at 3:30am so set your alarms and prepare your midnight snacks.. Its going to be basketball at its finest.
