Thunder Vs. Warriors Halftime Score: OKC Leads By Five Over Golden State

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are being the usual scoring duo for the Oklahoma City Thunder as the two have 15 and 14 points respectively, but it is James Harden who has scored 12 points off the bench in the first half. With Harden's big first half the Thunder are leading the Golden State Warriors 57-52 at the half.

The Thunder are also leading this game because they are getting to the basket and getting to the free throw line and have made 18 of 20 free throws compared to six of eight for the Warriors. That free throw disparity is offsetting the three-point discrepancy where the Warriors have made six of 15 compared to the Thunder who has made one of six.
