The Warriors lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night in a close game that ended 108-102. The win marks a major victory for the Thunder who now hold a 1-0 series lead in the Western Conference Finals and put all the pressure on the Warriors to win one at home.
The news wasn’t all bad for the Warriors though. While he would obviously have rather come away with the win, Steph Curry set yet another record in the 3-point category by passing Reggie Miller for most consecutive playoff games with a 3-pointer at 45 straight. We’ll see how long he can keep this streak going.

The series continues on Wednesday at 9:00pm (EST). Even though the Warriors are more than capable of winning a couple on the road, the general consensus has to be that the Warriors need this win in Game 2 if they stand a chance of going to the finals. The Thunder have already taken down the Spurs, the team previously expected to be the biggest threat to the Warriors back-to-back championships. Let's see if they can do it again.
