After knocking off the San Antonio Spurs in the second round, OKC continues to come up huge on the road. In the regular season, the Spurs and Warriors combined for a 79-3 home record. So far in the postseason, they’re 1-3 at home against the Thunder. That’s pretty damn impressive.

Normally the Warriors play their best when the game is on the line, but that wasn’t the case in the series opener. The dynamic backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson missed nine of 10 shots in the final period in which Golden State went 6-for-23 from the field.
Bouncing back after a loss has become commonplace for the Dubs. In Golden State's last 12 games coming off a loss, they're a perfect 12-0 SU.
