INJURY TO WATCH

Small forward Kevin Durant (ribs) and shooting guard Klay Thompson (thumb) are both probable to play tonight. Small forward Chris Boucher (ankle) is questionable. Small forwards Andre Iguodala (knee) and Kevon Looney (flu) are doubtful. Shooting guard Patrick McCaw (back) and small forward Omri Casspi (ankle) are both out indefinitely. Point guard Steph Curry (ankle) is out until late April. For the Thunder, shooting guard Andre Roberson (patellar tendon) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

Golden State is the walking wounded, but at least it sounds like Durant and Thompson will be active tonight. They'll be needed for huge contributions in order to take down an OKC team that always gets up for the Warriors due to Durant's status as a former Thunder star. Golden State is firmly slotted into the second seed in the Western Conference, while Oklahoma City has much more to play for with its seed for the playoffs. Go with the Thunder tonight to cover the 4.5.
