Thunder dominate Warriors, Draymond gets tossed again

Green collected his league-leading 13th technical, as the flustered Warriors were being throttled from the opening minute.

Paul George and Russell Westbrook lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 125-105 gas-grill cooking of the defending champion Golden State Warriors, while also snapping a four-game losing streak.

Westbrook had 34 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists. George scored 38 points, and got the proceedings going early and often. The Thunder would score 42 in the first.

That was the game right there, the first quarter and they have 42 points. You've got to give them credit, they came out with a lot of energy and we didn't match it.

In the highlight of the night, George got a steal, and came down and put Kevin Durant on a rotisserie, nailing a three after series of dribbles that had the Warrior superstar imitating a vintage Gregory Hines.

Durant scored 33 points, but Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson had a rough go, combining for 33 points on 11 of 27 (4 of 15 from 3) shooting.

The Warriors collected five technicals, including two by Draymond Green - who now has league-leading 13 on the year.
