Golden State Warriors Adjusts Gear and Crushes Oklahoma City Thunder
I find it highly attractive to see defending Golden State Warriors league champion face one of the best and most defensive teams in the west Oklahoma City Thunder on a stellar Saturday night that will bring us this exciting duel. Source Game Summary Warriors would come out with a lot of rhythm and they were precise in the offense in the first laps of the encounter they would take advantage of 10 digits, against a Thunder that was still difficult to enter with their dynamics of game, they would try to discount but the offensive volume of Warriors was extremely powerful and they would win the partial of the first period. Source Thunder would begin to work on a reaction that would seek to prevent the Warriors continue to move away, although the bay were showing a great fluidity in attack and imposed their forceful game against Oklahoma, would finish the first half 64 - 46 Warriors above. Second Half Golden State continued to play very well and executed effectively to maintain the advantage over the Thunder, who looked a bit lethargic with little response capacity, Thunder wins the quarter partial by a possession but Warriors led the match. Source At a steady pace the Warriors continued their excellent performance in both defensive and offensive play and in this last quarter became complicated a reaction of the Thunder who were lacking energy in this encounter, without reaction of their key pieces, with several minutes to play the teams would leave their respective benches in play, would end the 110 - 88 duel in a victory with forcefulness of the Warriors over the Thunder. Details and Personal Analysis Warriors are playing very well increasingly geared and it should be noted that they have obtained excellent victories and even lacking a key and stellar piece as Kevin Durant is, the performance of Cousins, Thompson and Curry has been excellent in these last games, in this specific encounter against Oklahoma they demonstrated their great offensive and defensive potential with so much forcefulness that the Thunder were seen dejected without a clear reaction from their stars who succumbed to the power of the Warriors, I believe in the personal thing that the team of the bay is savoring the arrival of the playoffs and they are coupling in great form the machinery for the future battle. Best Performances Stephen Curry 33 Pts. 7 Reb. 3 Ast. Klay Thompson 23 Pts. 8 Reb. 4 Ast. DeMarcus Cousins 12 Pts. 8 Reb. 6 Ast.

Paul George's Hypocritical Few Days
Paul George complaining about officiating is a bit ironic. He and Russel Westbrook get their fair share of superstar calls and phantom contact and ones. Paul George, of course, is the man who shot 20 free throws March 7 against Portland and delivered this elbow to Jusuf Nurkic’s jaw. It might not be a strike from Jon Jones, but in today’s NBA that was a flagrant foul, and at the very least an offensive foul. The following day Oklahoma City played The Los Angeles Clippers and lost 118-110. George, Westbrook, and Steven Adams all fouled out, and the Clippers shot 20 more free throws than the Thunder. I would argue that George and Westbrook do get this share of calls as a team since they shoot the third most free throws in the NBA with 25.9 and the teams ahead of them are the Philadelphia 76ers and the team they faced that is 28.8. Not only that but George is number eight getting 7.13 free throws per games as of Saturday morning March 3 and Westbrook is number 14 with 6.5 free throws per game. Against the Clippers, Oklahoma City shot 44 three-pointers, and the Clippers took 26. Los Angeles took it to the basket a lot more, and the Thunder consistently shot from behind the arc. The thing that I think makes this even more ridiculous is how athletic these two are and if you watch Westbrook he is so fast and athletic that he avoids contacting by hanging in the air longer than his defenders do and over the last 40 games or, so George has been shooting and scoring at an MVP rate. However, George is angry and hurt. I just thought it was such a ridiculous outrage after the game against the Blazers that someone needed to call PG-13’s bluff. So Paul have a Snickers you aren’t yourself.
