Bad blood continues to boil over in the Warriors-Thunder rivalry.
At the end of the second quarter of Monday night’s game, Golden State point guard Stephen Curry got into a shoving match with Oklahoma City’s Semaj Christon.
The teams were preparing for a jump ball when Curry positioned himself in front of Christon.
Christon gave him a one-handed push and Curry pushed back and the next thing you know a mini-fracas broke out with the two shoving each other.
Russell Westbrook immediately jumped in between them to separate the two before he started shoving Curry, too, which led Draymond Green to get into the mix, pushing Westbrook back.
The rest of the players on the court did their best to restrain everyone before the scuffle elevated to a brawl.
No flagrant fouls were given but Curry, Green, Westbrook and Christon were assessed with technical fouls.
Intensity is always high when the Thunder and Warriors play each other, especially since Kevin Durant bolted Oklahoma City to team up with Golden State.
Durant is currently out the remainder of the season with a knee injury, but it’s clear he doesn’t need to be on the floor to spice things up between these two teams.
Once order was restored, Curry was able to deliver one more blow, nailing a three-pointer at the buzzer and sprinting into the locker room as the Warriors took a 20 point lead into the half.
