Thunder simply tell teams that Paul George is 'untouchable'

Thunder simply tell teams that Paul George is 'untouchable' Thunder simply tell teams that Paul George is 'untouchable'

Kevin Durant admitted, "They just came out with a lot of energy, and we didn't".

Golden State became the first team to have four starters voted into the All-Star game in consecutive years. After picking up two on Tuesday night, Green has 13 on the year.

The Thunder never trailed, 7-0 and 9-0 runs in the first quarter to build a 42-30 lead after the first quarter.

Still, Oklahoma City owns the NBA's No. 5-ranked defense and No. 11-ranked offense, a massive improvement since the season's viscous start. Westbrook missed just two shots in the first quarter, finishing with 21 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds. "He put us on his back and established a no-quit mentality, a no-back-down mentality, and everybody just followed suit".

"We just gotta do a better job of coming ready to compete on a consistent basis against the teams under.500", Anthony said.

When Durant and the Warriors faced his former team the Thunder Tuesday night, the refs called a foul on Durant, believing he had tripped former teammate Russell Westbrook. But the Warriors had plenty of time to overcome the deficit with another half still to play.

"It don't catch my attention", Anthony said when asked afterward if he was surprised that the Thunder have been able to secure some big wins during the regular season.

And after Tuesday's loss, the Warriors can no longer pretend that everything is hunky dory.

Anthony walked with a slight limp out of the Thunder locker room in postgame, but didn't appear to be wearing a heavy brace on his right ankle. Paul George led the way with 38 points (11-23 from the floor; 6-11 from three-point range) followed by Westbrook who finished with 34 points (13-26 from the floor). The Thunder had played a near ideal couple of quarters, locking down the league's most explosive offense - save for former MVP Kevin Durant's 24 points - and dropping a 70 spot behind their own explosion from Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

Fans may be quick to blame some of the suspect calls for Golden State's poor game.

"Obviously, they're a hard team to guard with all their movement and their ability to stretch it and drive it", Donovan said. "We've got to try to find, when he's out there, we've got to try to find him a few more threes".

And yet, the Thunder represent everything Golden State struggles to handle.

The All-Star forward leads the National Basketball Association with 13 technical fouls this season, two more than teammate Kevin Durant, Westbrook and Charlotte Hornets center Dwight Howard, who are tied with 11 each.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers have been in great form as they've won seven of their past nine games and they will be aiming for a fourth straight win after blowing past the Suns in a 112-93 home win on Tuesday.

Steve Kerr, who was in no mood to celebrate his 300th game as the Golden State coach afterward, insisted the referees weren't the reason his club had suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time this season.

"This isn't anything we haven't been through in the last 3 years". "We're not playing the way we normally do".

It was nearly hurtful to watch Westbrook play against the Warriors last season.
