In regards to the rivalry, many OKC fans are still frustrated with the departure of Kevin Durant in the summer of 2016, right after OKC lost to the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. Since then, tensions have been high between the squads and have resulted in many clashes on the court and in social media. While things may have cooled down for the time being, OKC still yearns to overcome the Warriors.

In terms of skill, the Golden State Warriors are a super team with excellent accuracy both inside and outside the three-point line. The Warriors also added DeMarcus Cousins to their roster, furthering the point that they are a super-team that is almost impossible to stop.

The Golden State Warriors will not only provide great games to watch, but also provide a litmus test for Oklahoma City’s overall skill with the updated roster. Fittingly, the teams are featured via the NBA opening night, reinforcing the fact this game is one that should not be missed.
