Sports News Review – Oklahoma defeated Golden State!

Sports news review starts with NBA playoffs, where Oklahoma City Thunder defeated Golden State Warriors by 133:105 and now leads by 2:1 in the series.

Everybody expected an interesting match and Golden State was regarded as a slight favorite to win it, but Oklahoma played possibly their best game this season and completely destroyed the reigning champions. The fact they scored 83 points in the second and the third quarter looks unreal, but Thunder All-Stars Westbrook and Durant made it happen. Both players were amazing, Westbrook scored 30 points and made 12 assists, while Durant scored 33 points and recorded 8 rebounds.

On the other hand, Curry and Thompson again failed to shoot like they used to do it this season and recorded 24 and 18 points. Draymond Green was even worse, with only 6 points!
