The Golden State Warriors just got destroyed in Houston last night, giving up 140 points and 23 three-pointers. That's with center Andrew Bogut, who can't play back-to-back game sine coming off ankle surgery. He won't play tonight which puts a bigger damper on a mediocre defensive team. This is also a revenge game for Oklahoma City, who suffered a 104-99 loss at Golden State on Jan. 23. OKchas scored at least 105 points in four of its five games since. Kevin Durant had 33 points in that meeting but he and Russell Westbrook committed key turnovers in the final minute to sink Oklahoma City. On the road, the Thunder have had their issues lately, but at home, Oklahoma City averages 108 points compared to 103.8 on the road. Westbrook is shooting 52.7 percent over the last three games and has cut down his turnovers in the last two to take some of the burden off Durant, who is suffering through bruised ribs. On Nov. 18, Durant had his first triple-double as the Thunder beat Golden State, 119-109, giving 9.5. Expect a bigger beating on Wednesday night.
