The Warriors have struggled lately though losing two of their last three games. Their lone win came against the Detroit Pistons, which they beat 113-95 led Curry who had 25 points and 8 assists; Lee with 17 points and 9 rebounds; and Iguodala with 8 points and 11 assists.
Meanwhile, the Thunder lost to the Los Angeles Clippers after building a nine-point half time lead but couldn’t sustain in and lost 111-103.
Serge Ibaka was a perfect 6-of-6 from the field with 13 points but was ejected in the 2nd quarter after a scuffle with Matt Barnes and Blake Griffin. Kevin Durant had 33 points and 10 assists while Russell Westrbook had 19 points and 10 dimes as well.
