Stormers show title credentials with season ending game-winning shot
The Warriors (20-4) have won six consecutive games and 10 of their last 11 in this series, including wins over the Rockets (20-13) and Spurs (19-12), and are seven-game winless in their last eight meetings with the Thunder. They are allowing 112.9 points per game to rival teams in a five-game stretch, and have outscored their opponents 89-29 in the process, including 10-for-19 in the third quarter.
„It’s a fantastic feeling. I’m still nervous when I don’t play. I’m just trying to find out if I can be confident. Obviously, the last game against Houston was awesome because that was our only loss in the last couple of years, so you just got to be ready to play,“ center Tony Allen said.
Westbrook has turned in his finest performance against Houston’s frontline, which included a season high-tying 14 assists — the most by any player in that time period — to go with seven rebounds and six assists. Durant had 32 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists to lead the way for the Rockets, who shot 42.3 percent and were 5 of 16 from 3-point range.
The Thunder’s defense made up the difference in the fourth quarter, holding the Warriors to just nine points on 3-of-14 shooting for the game.
„One thing that’s come in the l월드 카지노ast two games, particularly in those games agains경주안마t the Spurs and the Rockets, we talked and said you could really get the momentum back in any game once you put the ball in their hands,“ coach Scott Brooks said. „That was a huge difference to the last game, and they stepped up, and I think it was really an indication of how solid and determined we are and how much we want to get back in there and make a run.“
