NBA: Golden State Warriors silence Oklahoma City Thunder
The Golden State Warriors underscored their dominance in the NBA`s Western Conference on Monday with a 117-91 pounding of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Stephen Curry scored 19 points, pulled down nine rebounds, handed out six assists and had four steals for the Warriors, who have reeled off four straight home wins by an average of 25 points.
The Warriors connected on 15-of-28 from three-point range.
Klay Thompson also scored 19 points, Harrison Barnes made all five of his three-point attempts for a team-high 23 points and Draymond Green added 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors.
Golden State led by 20 points at halftime, keeping reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant and Russell Durant in check and limiting the Thunder overall to just 30.6 percent shooting.
The Thunder had been clicking of late with Durant and Westbrook finally healthy, and had won four of their last five coming into the contest.
However, with the defeat they failed to move above .500 for the first time this season.
Westbrook finished with 22 points while Durant had 14 points and 10 rebounds but connected on just three of his 16 shots from the floor.
