There might not have been a storm in Oklahoma City last Sunday, but the Thunder sure did show up. After the series was tied 1-1, Kevin Durant and company silenced the defending champions, and especially Steph Curry. While Durant and Westbrook scored a combined 63 points, Curry seemed to fizzle, making only 27.3% of his three pointers, miles away from his season average of 45.4%.
Steph Curry wasn’t the only one who looked out of sync. Draymond Green only made one field goal the whole night, and is facing a fine for his second low blow in two games. Some believe Green should be suspended for what they think is obviously an intentional kick to the groin. While the NBA has decided that no suspension will be handed down, the Thunder definitely won’t forget about it.

OKC fans with the humorous chant of “Kick him out.” #Thunder

Steven Adams is taking a beating in this series. I believe Draymond has reached “peak annoyingness” early in this game #Warriors
