Fans can watch the Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder live online and see if the two teams can follow up what was one of the best games in the NBA this season with another classic.
The last time the teams met, it was Stephen Curry hitting the game-winning shot from 37 feet as time expired in overtime, an amazing shot, even for a player who makes 30-plus footers seem ordinary. They meet again on Thursday at 10:30 p.m. ET in a game that could be drastically different.
The Warriors are putting their perfect 25-0 home record on the line against the Thunder, but may be without their MVP. Curry sat out the team’s 109-105 overtime win against Atlanta on Tuesday after suffering an ankle injury in the Oklahoma City game last week.
It could be a huge blow if Stephen Curry isn’t on the floor, as the Warriors have a chance to set the NBA record for longest home winning streak. As ESPN pointed out, Curry was having an amazing week, even by his standards.
“With three straight 40-point games, he was unsurprisingly named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday after averaging 43.8 over four games as the Warriors improved to 14-0 over the past two seasons when he reaches 40.
“It’s the most productive four-game stretch (175 points) since Kobe Bryant in February 2003, and it was also a week in which he tied the single-game 3-point record with 12 against the Thunder, broke his own single-season mark (288) and set an NBA record for consecutive games with a 3 (129).”
Kerr said the team would make a decision around game time depending on how Curry feels in the pre-game shootaround. Here is his full explanation, in the form of a tweet.

If Curry can play, the Warriors vs. Thunder matchup has all the makings of a classic. Curry hit an NBA-record 12 three-pointers in Saturday’s matchup, as he looked seemingly unguardable. But Kevin Durant and the Thunder are looking to extract a measure of revenge and prove that they are among the Western Conference’s elite.

The Warriors have now won 43 games in a row inside their home building, winning by an average of 15.2 points. Those who watch the Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game live online will see the team take a crack at setting the NBA record.
Coach Steve Kerr said it’s been so long since the team lost at home, it’s tough to keep track of it all.
“I said, ‘How many home wins in a row is that?’ And everybody had a blank stare on their face, so our guys have no clue how many we’ve won in a row,” said Kerr, whose Chicago Bulls team held the record at 43. “It’s a source of pride controlling our own floor. We’ve done an incredible job of that since last year.”
Fans who watch the Warriors vs. Thunder game online could likely be seeing a preview of the Western Conference playoffs, as the Thunder currently sit at No. 3 but far behind the league-best Warriors and the perpetually excellent San Antonio Spurs. The Thunder know that the road to the NBA finals will go through Oracle Arena, and a win on Thursday would be an important confidence boost.
