The Thunder did something that no other team in the NBA has done all season tonight. They handed the Golden State Warriors their second straight loss. They put the Warriors on the brink of elimination. They proved that this 73 win team is not as good as everyone though all season. They won game four by a score of
The MVP for the Thunder in this one? That’s right, just a normal day at the office so it is none other than Andre Roberson. Wait… What? Andre Roberson? Yup. Roberson came out and had a huge game. He managed to put up 17 points and 12 rebounds. He also helped the Thunder shut down Steph Curry, who had a poor shooting night and only scored 15. Everything the Thunder could ever ask of Roberson they got.
Russell Westbrook deserves a mention in this one too. Westbrook went out there and somehow put up a triple-double without anyone really noticing. Westbrook would finish the game with 36 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists. It is the Thunder time in his career that Westbrook has had those kind of numbers and only Michael Jordan and Oscar Robinson have done it more than him.
Kevin Durant would finish with 26 points and 11 rebounds, Serge Ibaka with 17 points and seven rebounds, and Steven Adams with 11 points and seven rebounds. One of the most impressive plays of the game came from Steven Adams. He was able to throw a complete dart to Andre Roberson for an easy bucket. It looked like Adams had taken a page out of the book of Russell Westbrook.
The Thunder will now travel to Golden State with a 3-1 series lead in hopes of putting the Warriors down for good in front of the Warriors’ home crowd. If OKC wants to win that one that will have to bring an incredible energy and silence their fanbase quickly. The Warriors will not go down quietly so OKC will have to have lock down defense and an offense that gets everyone involved. This Thunder team win this series, they have the control, now to put the final touches on it.
