Just when everyone thought the Golden State Warriors will easily defend their Western Conference title from last year, the Warriors are now going to Game 5. While the Warriors seeks to regain the title, OKC seeks to end their flourishing season with a title.
For Warriors vs Thunder Game 5, Dub Nation will be hosting Rip City in the Oracle Arena.
While Warriors believes this is not the way it will go out, OKC has definitely shown itself as a stronger and improved team overall.
With Russell Westbrook leading the team and letting other players make the shot, Rip City has proved to be a formidable team to defeat this season.
Stephen Curry has said that it’s a terrible feeling going into Game 5, letting their quest for the Western Conference title stretch this far, NBA reports.
While Game 2 and Game 3 have been marked with Draymond Green’s flagrant fouls and a suspension threat, Golden State Warriors had luck on its side when the NBA officials decided that Green’s offenses only merited an upgrade to his flagrant foul and fine.
Dub Nation’s A-team is complete on the floor, starting with Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, SB Nation reports. Their starting team needs to pick up their game and make sure that OKC does not pummel them into defeat again.
Meanwhile, Rip City needs to secure a grip on their winning streak after Game 4’s success. Cashing in on their offensive game, the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Steven Adams brought a Game 4 win at 118-94.
Will this be the end of the Golden State Warriors’ remarkable 73 regular season game-winning record? Or will Oklahoma City Thunder let Dub Nation push it for a Warriors vs Thunder Game 6?
