Durant's big game leads Warriors past Thunder

Durant's big game leads Warriors past Thunder

The Warriors (56-21) will try to avoid losing the season series to the Thunder (45-33), who have beaten Golden State twice before being routed 112-80 in Oakland on February 24.

The Golden State Warriors traveled to the Chesapeake Energy Arena in downtown Oklahoma City on Tuesday night to play out the final game of their regular season four-game series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Of course, the rivalry between the two teams has heated up since Kevin Durant left the Thunder to join the Warriors almost two years ago. Russell Westbrook was outstanding in the win for OKC, notching a triple-double with 26 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists.

Zaza Pachulia is set to start at center against Steven Adams and the Thunder.

Westbrook and Paul George accounted for most of the Thunder's scoring, with Westbrook's 44 including three three-pointers.

Carmelo Anthony continued an apparent decline, scoring just 12 points on 4-16 from the field, including 0-9 from three point range. They would play the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs as things stand.
