Ton of times @thunder could've used the dependable 2-way wing we've heard so much about. Wide open looks when KD's on like this. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) February 28, 2016

Impressive, Thunder 9/17 from the charity stripe, 18 turnovers and lead by 5. KD's six 3's coming in handy. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 28, 2016

and we're tied at 75, KD back in. #News9Thunder

Steph Curry about to check back in for Warriors

— News 9 Sports (@News9Sport) February 28, 2016

How dangerous would the Thunder be if Andre Roberson could consistently hit the corner 3? #GSWatOKC #Thunder #Warriors

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) February 28, 2016

Curry rolled an ankle and now in the locker room. If he stays out, would look really bad if Thunder lost the game.

— Brad Galbreath (@bradgalbreath) February 28, 2016

I can hear it now... Thunder won, but Curry got hurt. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) February 28, 2016

These fans were raised on championship defense. Many were so proud of suffocating D Eddie Sutton & OU football teams played. #Thunder @News9
