Oklahoma vs GS Warriors by Rahul
The Warriors have surprisingly jumped to being the 3rd best team in the NBA behind Memphis and Toronto, only due to the fact they have played 2 games less than them. The Championship pedigree that Steve Kerr brings to the Warriors is exactly what they need as their biggest improvement has come on the defensive end. They have held their opponents to under 97 points (top 12 in the NBA) and under 41.5% field goals percentage (2nd in the NBA). The improvement in their defense is leading to much more frustration from their opponents, and they are often able to score easily on fast breaks, where they rank no.1 in the NBA with 20.4 points per game, with Boston the next best, 3 points behind.
In the scoring department there is the continued progress of the splash brothers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, as well as the supporting cast of Barbosa, Livingston and Iguadola are helping them to 3rd spot in the NBA. Thompson has clearly improved his play taking his scoring average from 18 ppg to 22 ppg, while improving his no. of free throws attempted and scored. The Warriors will definitely be a high scoring team as they attempted 18 3-pointers per game, netting around 7 per game on average.
The Warriors will look to take advantage of this struggling OKC Thunder team, who especially tend to lose concentration in the 2nd half, as they drop a lot of games from winning positions; and I think the Warriors should easily be able to cross the 100 point barrier tonight.
