Golden State Warriors will be up against Oklahoma City Thunders in the Western Conference Semi-Finals today.
With 2-time MVP Stephen Curry leading the Warriors, they will face off Oklahoma City Thunders with Russell Westbrook at ORACLE Arena, Oakland, California.
Golden State Warriors came to the Western Conference Semi-Finals in a breeze, winning against Rockets and Trail Blazers in just 5 games. Their win for the most part was done Curry-less. Stephen Curry came late to the games after nursing his ankle and knee injuries, NBA reports.
NJ.com fearlessly predicts the Golden State Warriors will easily triumph over OKC if Curry can keep his limbs safe from injury and continue being the lead scorer of the team.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma City Thunder won’t go down without a fight. Counting on hitting the Warriors from the inside and counting on the rebounds, OKC can still beat the Warriors. While Russell Westbrook is their main man when it comes to breaking them out of the tight spots, Andre Roberson and Dion Waiters in the court also do an excellent job of taking one for the team.
Whoever wins the best of seven games will face either Toronto Raptors or Cleveland Cavaliers. The two are meeting on the Eastern side of the conference.
