OKLAHOMA CITY — Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Draymond Green vowed that their record-setting team won’t go out meekly after their poor performances in Tuesday’s Game 4 played prominent roles in the Oklahoma City Thunder taking a 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference finals.
This series has been a complete surprise to me. I knew that Oklahoma City was tough, but I didn’t believe they could manhandle the defending champions like they have in this series. What everyone is seeing is the two top guns for the Thunder (Durant and Westbrook) are playing at the top of their game and their teammates are following suit. In addition, the length and athleticism of the Thunder has really disrupted the Warriors. Now they face the daunting task of trying to rebound and win the series being down 3 games to 1. By the way, nine other teams in NBA history have accomplished that feat. Will Golden State be number 10? We will see!!
