Warriors’ Steve Kerr says ‘it’s doubtful’ Kevin Durant plays vs. Thunder on Saturday

Saturday's tipoff is set for 8:30 p.m. ET from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

With the win, the Warriors officially clinch a playoff spot, as they can finish no worse than eighth place in the West even if they lost all of their remaining games.

Golden State had struggled in the first quarter for a stretch until recently, being outscored by 28 in the first quarter over a 10-game stretch.

In 65 games this season for the Dubs, Kevin Durant is averaging 27.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per contest. Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Thunder vs. Warriors spread to jump on, all from the advanced model that is up more than $4,000 on its National Basketball Association picks this season, and find out.

All three games this season between the teams have been missing All-Stars.

Raonic Beats Kecmanovic To Reach Indian Wells Semi-final
In the victory, Bencic won 78 percent of her first serve points and 45 percent of her second serve points. Andreescu, a wild-card entry at Indian Wells, beat a top 50 player for the ninth time this year.

The win was the second consecutive for the Warriors to start a four-game road trip. Golden State has dominated the series since 2015-16, winning 10 of the past 13 meetings. The Warriors have also won five of the past seven in OKC.

That's because the Thunder are 23-9 at home this season and 25-20 against conference opponents.

They continued that trend Saturday with 40 first-quarter points, Golden State's most points in any quarter since February 6. The 40-point quarter is the most the Thunder have allowed in a first quarter this season. During the 2014-15 season, Westbrook picked up a 16th but had it rescinded the following day to avoid the suspension. Curry now has 16,027 career points, trailing only Wilt Chamberlain (17,783 points), Rick Barry (16,447), Paul Arizin (16,266) and Chris Mullin (16,235) on the Warriors' all-time scoring list... They are the most opportunistic team in the league, scoring an NBA-best 1,349 points off turnovers. Curry owns four of the top five three-point season in National Basketball Association history, including the National Basketball Association record with 402 threes in 2015-16.

Andre Iguodala made his 13th start of the season (second consecutive).
