Moore’s NBA Predictions: Golden State Warriors and the Mirage of Non-Inevitability

Moore’s NBA Predictions: Golden State Warriors and the Mirage of Non-Inevitability”

Stephen Curry led the way with 32 points while Kevin Durant recorded 27.

Golden State squandered a double-digit half-time lead but re-took control in the fourth quarter and held on for a 108-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.

"I don't think I'll ever be at a point where it's kind of a "blah" moment when you're receiving a ring and seeing a banner come down and seeing all those trophies".

Speaking after the game, Curry reflected on the occasion and how he used to look up at the rafters of the Oracle Arena and only see the championship banners from the past, but has since contributed with three championships in the last four years.

The father told detectives that when the child hadn't arrived in the afternoon, he assumed plans changed and left for the evening. The woman then knocked on the door before turning around and running away, leaving the boy behind at the doorstep.

The Warriors showed a photo of late Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen on the big screen wearing a Portland hat, offering a tribute and moment of silence.

The Golden State Warriors are once again reigning National Basketball Association champions, and backup point guard Quinn Cook is making sure everyone knows it.

Russell Westbrook won't play in Oklahoma City's season opener. He came out of the locker room and torched the Warriors for 15 points on 6-for-10 shooting in the third quarter and brought the Thunder back into the game.

If we consider the brain trust's thought process they wanted to kick off the season with a bang. But figure on San Antonio starting fast, as the Spurs are 19-2 in season openers under Gregg Popovich, who begins his 23rd season to tie Utah's Jerry Sloan for the most seasons coaching one team. The Warriors did a solid job of defending George in the first half, but he erupted in the second, on his way to a 27-point, five assist night. When was the last time a top-three player in their prime was traded?

Before the afternoon notes went out, the Thunder was talking like a team that on one side had no idea about Westbrook's status and on the other side may have been playing coy.

At the end of the ceremony, Curry took the microphone and called out longtime equipment manager and director of team operations Eric Housen to receive his ring in a lovely gesture to someone so important to the operation behind the scenes.
