Warriors Vs Thunder Game 3: The Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder lock horns in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals at Chesapeake Arena Sunday night.
With the series tied at one win apiece, tonight’s game is pivotal for both teams. After stealing Game 1 in Oakland, Thunder seized home-court advantage but would lose it if they don’t win the next two games in front of their fans. The momentum is with the Warriors after a 27-point victory in Game 2 which saw Stephen Curry score 15 points in a two-minute span in the third quarter.
The Warriors endured a scare when Curry injured his elbow during the second quarter Wednesday, when the reigning MVP sprung into the stands in pursuit of a loose ball. Luckily for the Warriors, Curry took part in Saturday’s practice sessions wearing a sleeve. “I’ll be fine,” Curry said after an intense scrimmage. “I’ve got stuff to deal with, but so does everybody else, so I’m fine.”

Warriors Vs Thunder: Curry’s elbow not an issue
Curry, who became the firs-ever unanimous MVP in NBA history earlier this month, acknowledged that it’s important to play through injuries in the postseason. “I mean, there’s no time really in between games to gain a lot of ground, when it comes to rehab and recovery and all that.
“When you play, playoff intensity, ever since I been back, there’s the grind of it. When I’m out there, I’m not thinking about it. I do it feel it the next day after every game. Like I said, you can poll most guys in the league, in these final four teams, most have things they got to deal with, so I’m in that boat.”
Meanwhile, the Thunder are determined to compete on the glass in Game 3 after allowing Warriors to collect 15 offensive rebounds and 15 second-chance points in the previous game. ”I think they just got all the 50-50 balls on the offensive glass. It kind of surprises when guys are running in there because we’re so good in transition. But they were in there and able to get their hands on some basketballs, so you have to give them credit,” Thunder forward Kevin Durant said Saturday.
