After Russell Westbrook put up a deep three that looked to end the game in Oklahoma City’s favor, Andre Iguodala sunk a cold-blooded, baseline jumper at the buzzer to secure the win 116-115 for Golden State, in what was a thrilling match up between these two Western Conference foes.
For the Thunder, Russell Westbrook led on the night, with 31 points, nine rebounds, five blocks and three steals. His then-dagger at the buzzer came with 2.3 seconds left in the game, and after Oklahoma City trailed by 14 in the fourth quarter. Serge Ibaka and Kevin Durant had 27 and 20 points, respectively, while Ibaka also had a double-double on the night, with 13 rebounds.
Golden State’s shooters had a heck of a game as well: at one point, the Warriors had made 12 of 14 three-pointers, and finished shooting 60-percent from beyond the arc. Klay Thompson led the team with 27 points, and made six of his first seven shots for 20 points. David Lee also had a big night, putting up 20 points, and Stephen Curry had 22 on the night, with four of eight threes.
As exciting as the game was offensively, the defensive effort left much to be desired.
With the loss, OKC falls to 5-3 on the season. The Thunder have a couple days off before traveling to Milwaukee on Saturday, Nov. 16, to challenge the Bucks at 8:30 p.m. ET.
