Thunder 108, Warriors 102 (OKC leads series 1-0)

Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals is officially in the bag…and it was the Oklahoma City Thunder that walked out with a win. A come-from-behind win. On the road. Against the Golden State Warriors.

Four Thunder players finished with double-doubles in Game 1: Kevin Durant (26 points, 10 rebounds), Serge Ibaka (11 points, 11 rebounds), Steven Adams (16 points, 12 rebounds) and of course, Russell Westbrook (27 points, 12 assists).

The Warriors were led by MVP Stephen Curry (26 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists) and Klay Thompson (25 points, 9 rebounds). But despite the Splash Bros. combining for 51 points at the Oracle, Russ, KD & Co. wanted to take Game 1 for themselves. And they did.

Game 2 is Wednesday at Golden State.
