Warriors get most out of … Speights?
Golden State were playing with one big on the court for 37 of the 104 half-court plays against the Thunder, 24 of them with Marreese Speights.
With Speights on the court as the lone big, the Warriors:
- Outscored the Thunder by 11.
- Shot 12-of-19 from the field.
