Three Thunder players were injured and Oklahoma City still left Oracle Arena with a lopsided win against the ailing, slumping two-time defending National Basketball Association champions. Diallo went down and had to be helped off the floor and, understandably, those around the league feared the worst. Warriors team physicians ruled out any severe lower-body injuries, and teammate Paul George referred to Diallo's injury as a sprained ankle, though the team would have no official diagnosis until after further tests Thursday in OKC.
Dennis Schroder scored 10 of his game-high 32 points in a second-quarter run that gave the Oklahoma City Thunder the lead for good Wednesday night in a 123-95 blowout of the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, Calif.
Clearly in pain, Diallo moved himself off the court and was under basket for several minutes.
Diallo's left leg was stabilized as he was wheeled away to applause from the Oracle Arena crowd.
Westbrook began one for six, then hit stride, finishing with 11 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds.
He has struggled on the court during the Warriors' 1-4 stretch, shooting 3-for-21 from 3-point range.
Adams had 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Grant put up 14 points and 11 rebounds, helping the Thunder win for an 11th time in their past 13 games after an 0-4 start.
The Thunder cruised to the 28-point win behind a big fourth quarter where they held the Warriors to just 16 points.
Still playing minus injured superstars Steph Curry (left groin) and Draymond Green (right knee), the Warriors rolled to their fourth straight loss - a first since the 2012-2013 season - and their sixth setback in the last 8 games.
The Thunder are next in action on Saturday when they face the Charlotte Hornets. G Alex Abrines was out with a viral illness.
