INJURY TO WATCH
The only injury the Thunder have to report is shooting guard Andre Roberson, who had his season end Jan. 27 when he ruptured his patellar tendon. As for the Warriors, power forward Draymond Green is dealing with a shoulder ailment but is expected to play tonight.
The gloves are always off when these two teams meet, with the Thunder scoring an impressive 125-105 victory at the Oracle on Feb. 6. But don't expect a repeat performance tonight against a Warriors squad that looked focused and ready to get into playoff form their first game after the All-Star break when they downed the Clippers 134-127 at home in a game that wasn't as close as the final score indicates. Although Golden State has looked vulnerable at times this year with 14 straight up losses and a 26-32-1 ATS record, it is a team that can turn it up in big time matches. Look for the Warriors to be on their 'A' game tonight to avoid a second straight home loss against OKC.
