Westbrook to miss season opener vs. Warriors

OKC's Steven Adams is listed as'questionable for the NBA season opener

"Personnel from the Clippers are expected to attend a high number of Warriors games this season, sources said", Haynes wrote.

San Antonio usually enters the season as a sure thing, but the Spurs this time are a question mark.

Prior to a 108-100 season-opening win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, the 2017-18 champs received their rings to commemorate their third title in four years.

"It's a great move for the organization". They discussed the obvious fights with boredom they had on a daily basis to drag themselves through a meaningless 82-game regular season to return to the playoffs - to the point that Warriors Coach Steve Kerr allowed his players to coach a game.

Klay Thompson shot just 5 of 20 for 14 points while center Damian Jones scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting for the Warriors in his first career start and 26th game. It's not surprising either. Obviously, we're still trying to go for more.

"It's a huge night, an emotional night".

"We played a solid game, nothing spectacular, we had a lot of mistakes", Curry said.

"We're kind of reminiscing the journey in those little moments".

All of this happens before the Warriors take to the court to face the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Curry says it is an awkward experience.

That last slot is typically designated for Stephen Curry, the cornerstone of the franchise and leader of its historic turnaround.

Durant has averaged over 25 points per game over the last two seasons, also seeing his assists marginally increase. His contract runs out and the end of the 2018-19 season and adds more issues to a financially-strapped team.

Oklahoma City All-Star forward Paul George dealt with a similar situation past year when he was constantly bombarded with questions about his pending free agency.

Adams had a double-double for the Thunder with 17 points and 11 rebounds. The Thunder were outrebounded 57-46 but grabbed 16 on the offensive glass. Adams doesn't have a history of back troubles, leaving the big man likely to play through any minor discomfort on Tuesday night.

Donovan attributed the Thunder's success in turning over the Warriors to length on drives and players pulling across and defending together when the ball changed sides of the floor.

The team got reversible rings with 74 sapphries on one side of the ring.
