Shai Gilgeous-Alexander made some silly ones out of isolation on his way to 30 points against the Warriors. He’s so big and long, and has such ridiculous change of pace. Hard to stay in front of him. Hit four 3s, too. He was the reason OKC stayed competitive tonight vs. GSW pic.twitter.com/wCDk09ls7Q1:20 AM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
I think Eric Paschall is clearly a good fit for this team. He’s playing terrific defense and he’s been a ball mover offensively. Makes really good reads off the short roll in 4 on 3 situations. Feels like he’s learned a lot from Draymond Green in his time with GS – 12:50 AM

Steve Kerr: Draymond at the five has been our best lineup for many years. It unlocks Steph. It unlocks spacing. I love Looney starting the game for the way he handles the defense… But ultimately, down the stretch. We’re usually going to go small. It’s our most potent lineup. – 12:22 AM

Kerr on Damion Lee: “I thought Damion was fantastic. Kenny Atkinson just called him Rod Carew for you old time baseball fans. Just every game he gets a couple hits. He’s just so rock solid in every way.” – 11:48 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Stephen Curry on Damion Lee: “He’s consistent. He knows our system, and he’s got so much better since he left Santa Cruz. He’s healthy available and confident…It’s huge for us to have a spark plug like that off the bench.”

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Sit Anthony Davis tomorrow night. Oklahoma City has no bigs. They’re one of the few teams in the NBA the Lakers could get away with 48 Dwight+DJ minutes against. Hell, could maybe even try some Melo at center minutes. – 11:11 PM

Lakers WIN in OT, 125-121…This team has a long way to go, no question about it…Got to improve on the Defensive side…

Final: Lakers 125, Spurs 121 (OT)
The Lakers improve to 2-2 behind big performances from Anthony Davis (35/17/4) and Russell Westbrook (33/10/8) — and w/o LeBron — in their first road test. Malik Monk and Austin Reaves stepped up in crucial moments.
Up next: at OKC tomorrow. – 11:08 PM

Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Also, was having this conversation with an NBA person tonight, but I think the Warriors are my favorite team to watch in the NBA right now. So much ball movement and high IQ play. Smart defense. The Steph factor every night. They’re such a fun watch this early in the season. – 10:49 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Kenrich Williams on the standing ovation after the game “I think it was helpful. The crowd was the sixth man for us, creates that energy that we need. We appreciate the fans.” – 10:49 PM
John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann
OKC pbp guy calls Jeremiah Robinson-Earl “J.R.E.” & I keep thinking he’s saying “J.R. Reid.” (I’m old.)
He seems to have dropped the “Shaigilgeous” thing, though. – 10:47 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mark Daigneault on SGA: “They were throwing two guys at him at the end of the game. That’s because he was a handful tonight.”
SGA scored 30 on Wiggins, Curry and anyone the Warriors tried and failed to stop him. – 10:45 PM

Mark Daigneault on the OKC crowd: “I’m not Oklahoman but I’ve been here for 8 years and I know Oklahomans have a pride for work ethic and rolling your sleeves up. We have a lot of faith this fanbase will grow with us.”
Loud City gave the team a standing ovation tonight. – 10:42 PM

Thunder fans give a nice standing ovation as the buzzer sounds on a close loss to the Warriors. They recognize the effort from OKC tonight. Really played well in large stretches of the game. – 10:22 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
How good will the Warriors be when Klay Thompson, James Wiseman, and Jonathan Kuminga join the team?
#DubNation10:22 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
There are only two 4-0 teams in the NBA:
The Golden State Warriors and the Chicago Bulls. – 10:21 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors are 4-0. Road wins over the Lakers, Kings and now Thunder. Their next eight games are at home: Grizzlies, Thunder, Hornets, Pelicans, Rockets, Hawks, Wolves, Bulls. – 10:21 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Season-high 30 points for SGA. And his most efficient game: 11-of-19 (4-of-5 from three) – 10:21 PM
Golden State Warriors PR @WarriorsPR
Damion Lee has 20 points in 25 minutes off the bench on 8-of-14 from the field (4-of-7 3FG), his 15th career 20-point game. – 10:20 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Thunder legend Moses Brown just had a slam for the Mavs and I think his entire team just greeted him to congratulate him before the timeout. – 10:18 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
My two big observations from the 4th quarter of Thunder-Warriors is that Mike Muscala has a Super Mario tattoo on his left shoulder blade and Mark Daigneault looks like he’s wearing an oversized baggie gray sweater – 10:17 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was the best player on the court in a game featuring Steph Curry and that’s the only win/loss that matters to OKC. – 10:17 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Wiggins was big time tonight. 21 points and counting. – 10:16 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
A lot of the big shots the Warriors have hit down the stretch of this game have been made by players off the bench — Iguodala, Lee, Porter JTA. Last year, only Steph could have saved this team. A welcomed change. – 10:16 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Warriors just threw like all 5 guys, Al Attles, Rick Barry, and Chris Mullin at SGA – 10:16 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Thunder has closed with Muscala over JRE and Kenrich Williams over Bazley. – 10:15 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Damion Lee: 15, 11, 11 and now 18 points the first four games of the Warriors season. Steady defense, regularly in closing lineup. He’s been one of the league’s biggest impact bench players the first week of the season. – 10:14 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Big shots by Iguodala, Toscano-Anderson, Lee and Porter when the Warriors have needed them here late. Still a long ways to go in the year — but this bench has shown some early signs that it is going to give the group a huge lift — especially compared to last year. – 10:13 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
If this is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander “looking like a player who knows OKC is playing for nothing” as Twitter said *Sunday* then I hope he always has this look in his eye. This version of SGA is a star. – 10:07 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Jordan Poole figured out the way to salvage a brutal start on offense is to get to the cup. Back to back driving layups put Warriors up 93-84, 6:17 remaining – 10:05 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Jordan Poole’s 0-of-7 from 3 tonight, but finally making an impact on the drive. Up to 10 points. Needed 19 from Andrew Wiggins on 8/15 FG. It’s been enough, next to Steph Curry, for Warriors to jump nine up on Thunder, mid fourth. – 10:04 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Poole has to go to the hole more often. – 10:03 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander off balance 3’s are so fun. – 10:03 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
If Josh Giddey can make those catch-and-shoot 3s in rhythm without dropping the ball on his gather and just firing, he’s going to be awesome. – 9:58 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Josh Giddey catch and shoot 3 in the corner, you love to see it. – 9:58 PM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
I counted 8 players for OKC that are wearing Kobes. – 9:58 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Another incredible pass to the corner by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander but Kenrich couldn’t hit the 3. – 9:56 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Lakers struggled to close quarters, much like they did in the opener vs. GSW.
Spurs were +8 in the final 2:30 of the 1st Q, and +6 in the final 2:30 of the 2nd Q. – 9:53 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
12-2 run by the Warriors to end the third and take their first lead of the night. Damion Lee and Otto Porter Jr. came in and finally knocked some shots down for GSW, and it’s given them all the momentum. – 9:50 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Warriors closed the third quarter on a 17-2 run. – 9:49 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Otto Porter’s biggest sequence since joining the Warriors: Two late third quarter 3s to bring the Warriors from one down to five up in OKC, sandwiched by a help side block on the defensive end. – 9:48 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Otto Porter 3-ball gives Warriors their first lead (78-76) in final minute of third quarter – 9:47 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Golden State has its first lead of the game with one minute left in the third. 78-76 Warriors. – 9:46 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Assistant coach Kenny Atkinson came racing off the bench when they didn’t give Steph that continuation. “Can we challenge that?” When told no — nobody on Warriors bench could believe the call. Steph still asking about it. – 9:45 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
As bad as the Warriors are playing, it’s still close. A Stephen Curry flurry of points could take over the game. – 9:42 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Steph Curry cannot defend Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.*
Anytime Curry gets switched on to SGA, Shai immediately drives to the lane or shoots over him.
*To be fair, not sure who can. – 9:38 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Me all off-season long: Darius Bazley, please be more aggressive
Darius Bazley: *becomes a fullback while driving to the rim* – 9:37 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
On the contrary, big voice guy, we are NOT watching thunder basketball on Bally sports Oklahoma. – 9:36 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
A lot of Steph jerseys all over the building tonight in OKC. Also, a lot of empty seats all over the place. – 9:36 PM
Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Does Giddey look like a discount Timothee Chalamet or have I been watching too much Dune – 9:30 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Tre Mann wearing Nike’s is so interesting. A few times this summer he posted on Instagram Converse care packages which I assumed would mean he would be rocking converse on the floor like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. I do like the green Nike’s I’m choosing to believe it’s for Paycom. – 9:30 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl stock skyrocketing – 9:29 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Bazley should have asked for a religious exemption as Wiggins dunked on him – 9:21 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Warriors losing by double digits at the half to a Thunder team that were all high schoolers during the 2016 WCF. – 9:19 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Looking like an NBA squad fresh off the South Beach ‘tour,’ undefeated Warriors trail winless Thunder 59-48 at halftime.
GSW: 39pct FG, 28.6 pct 3p; OKC: 54.5/43.8
OKC 30-20 adv in the paint – 9:08 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Really poor defensive effort from Warriors in first half. Young Thunder beating them up and down the floor. Steph has 16 — rest of Warriors offense has been hard to come by. Warriors just 6-for-21 from beyond the arc. – 9:05 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
It got really loud in here after the JRE dunk on the dish from SGA.
Thunder lead Warriors 59-48 at the half. OKC shooting 55% overall and 44% from three. By far its best offensive half of the season. – 9:05 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Only 48 first half points for the Warriors in OKC. Sixteen for Steph Curry, not much help. Jordan Poole a quiet 2/8 FG, missed all five of his 3s. Thunder up 11. – 9:05 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Folks…
That was a really good and fun half of basketball by the Thunder – 9:04 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has built well off his second half on Sunday and looks like that all star level player, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl has been awesome, Bazley has been aggressive, the team has energy and defense, they lead the unbeaten Warriors at halftime, 59-48. – 9:04 PM
Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
what a hideous close to the half for warriors – 9:04 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Another awesome pass by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander sets up a huge Dort dunk cutting baseline hard. Dort’s been way better at the rim this year. – 9:01 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Steve Kerr just threw his hands up. Seems quite frustrated with Golden State’s effort. The Thunder are getting some easy looks. – 9:01 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Darius Bazley and JRE set a double screen, JRE goes to the corner Bazley cuts to the rim Giddey finds Baze for a easy bucket. Amazing things happen when Baze isn’t suppose to just stand in the corner. – 9:00 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors trailing OKC 46-31, 7:15 Q2.
-GSW chucking from deep, not getting much
-Thunder dicing up languid GSW defense beyond the arc and at the rim. Even back cuts
-Another Kerr timeout – 8:49 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
The Thunder are out-Warriorsing the Warriors in this first half – 8:47 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Mike Muscala is a smooth 6-of-8 from three this season. – 8:45 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Poku scores over former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who won that award based largely on his defense on LeBron James. – 8:42 PM
Mike Richman @mikegrich
The Warriors broadcast calling Poku, a career 28% 3-point shooter, “a shooter who isn’t shooting well right now” is the type of grace we all deserve. – 8:41 PM

GP2 was pleading with Kerr to challenge that play. “Coach! Coach!” he said. Kerr just smiled knowing it was too early in the game to burn the challenge. It was Draymond, of all people, who calmed down GP2. – 8:30 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors starting lineup — Curry, Poole, Wiggins, Draymond, Looney — is now -9 in 41 minutes together to open the season. Down seven to the Thunder early. – 8:25 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Gary Payton II getting a first quarter stint. In the rotation tonight again, even with Andre Iguodala back. – 8:22 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl is a shooting threat at the center position and it opens up more space for SGA, Giddey and Dort to drive the lane.
Thunder up 16-6 on the Warriors after Baze’s monster putback dunk. – 8:21 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Thunder off to a fast start in this one. Warriors call timeout down 16-6 midway through the first quarter.
JRE is giving the starting lineup a new look. – 8:20 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors open in sleep mode, down 16-6 to pitiful Thunder. Kerr wants a timeout. 6:40 left in the first. – 8:19 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
A brutal start for the Warriors. They are 3/11 from the field, 0/5 from the three-point line. Looking pretty lifeless on defense early. – 8:19 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Warriors are basically going through the motions and the Thunder are playing fun basketball out there. – 8:19 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with a BEAUTIFUL pass to Giddey that couldn’t complete a tough lay up but an aggressive Bazley cleans it up. – 8:18 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
On the last Dubs Talk Live, I said that coming into this game against OKC, my biggest concern for the Warriors was that they would take their foot off the gas and play down to the level of their opponent. So far, they’ve done exactly that. – 8:17 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Good things happen when Darius Bazley is aggressive. – 8:14 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl is that guy. – 8:13 PM

Darius Bazley coast to coast dump off to JRE. My heart. Building block Bazley. – 8:12 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Loud boos for Draymond Green pregame. Loud cheers for Steph Curry. – 8:06 PM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
Steph Curry continued his hot start to the 2021-22 season with a 27 point performance in a win over the Kings on Sunday. Here is a look at the stats and highlights. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/25/ste…8:00 PM

Embiid and Curry are a combined 1-for-7 shooting. Sixers lead 22-19. – 7:57 PM

Vogel said LeBron will be listed as questionable for Lakers at OKC – 7:05 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Frank Vogel says LeBron James will be questionable tomorrow vs. OKC. He added that while this ankle injury is the same leg as LeBron’s ankle injury last season, the injury is in a different spot and of a different severity. – 7:04 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Liked this quote from OKC coach Mark Daigneault on Steph/Draymond: “Those guys are kind of like jazz musicians out there. They just kind of play off each other in a pretty synergistic way.” – 7:04 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Vogel confirmed it’s the same ankle that LeBron hurt last year, but a different injury in a different spot. He will be questionable for tomorrow’s back to back at OKC. – 7:02 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Sixers starters tonight against the Knicks are as expected: Tyrese Maxey, Seth Curry, Danny Green, Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid. Andre Drummond, who missed Sunday’s win in OKC, is also active. – 7:02 PM

LeBron James is OUT in San Antonio tonight, the Lakers play the Thunder tomorrow in OKC. – 7:01 PM

Josh Giddey highlights from the Philly game… some really high level stuff in here from a 19-year-old in his third game. That floater could really be a considerable weapon for him. youtu.be/HLrqFaZyQ-85:14 PM
