In 28 games this season, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry have combined for 172 threes. Between the two of them, they attempt 15 threes per game, and knock down 6.5. They are also both shooting over 41.5 percent from the perimeter, which is just terrifying. So what I'm trying to say is that you could say - if you really, really want to - that they are living up to their "Splash Brothers" nickname.
The Golden State Warriors scored over two points per possession in the fourth quarter. Because, you know, why not?
Last season's second round match-up between the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs may as well just be referred to as, "The Harrison Barnes Coming Out Party." In those six games, he was a headache for Gregg Popovich. But why, after having a solid-but-unspectacular rookie season, did Barnes explode in those six games?
Friday against the Golden State Warriors, Westbrook nailed a trey that put Oklahoma up by one point and left just 0.1 seconds on the clock. The game-winner secured a win for his rolling squad and left us speaking in tongues. Let's not allow the electricity of the moment to confuse us, though. This was not the play of the game, or even his. Westbrook's defining imprint on the game seconds before the shot when he flung into the air and lunged for an offensive rebound that would have otherwise belonged to the 6'11 Jermaine O'Neal.
The Warriors used Marc Gasol's knowledge of their tendencies against him on Wednesday night to get an easy alley-oop for Andrew Bogut.

You weren't dreaming; that game between the Thunder and Warriors really happened.
Or were you?
