The Golden State Warriors took a beating from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday’s Game 3. That win gives the Thunder control of the series and can put the defending champs in a huge hole. The Warriors look vulnerable but don’t count Golden State out just yet. The Dubs haven’t lost consecutive games all season. The thought that they are invincible that carried them to a record number of wins is gone. The Warriors can get it back, and while it will be difficult, they are the defending champs for a reason. The matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder will take place on Tuesday, May 24, 2016, at 9 p.m. ET at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The game will be televised on TNT.
The Warriors power forward Draymond Green kicked the Thunder center Steven Adams in the jewels with his foot again during Game 3. Adams was able to get up and to return to the game. Following a review of the play, the officials gave Green a Flagrant 1 foul. After the Green foul, the Thunder went on a 24-5 run to close out the half. After half-time the Thunder went on to a 45-point third quarter to build a lead of as much as 41. Green did not have a good game and was a non-factor. He made just 1 of 9 field goals for six points and was minus-43 on the floor. The Dubs need Draymond Green to play at the same level he has for the entire year, along with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to pull off this series against the Thunder. The Thunder superstar power forward Kevin Durant has beaten the Dubs by his relentless performance in Game 3. Top Sports Blog believes the Warriors edge may be missing but no team bounces back better than Golden State. The Warriors will come out with a sense of urgency and if the Thunder isn’t ready to answer, this series may come back to Oracle Arena all tied up.
