Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have extended their perfect start to the season and clinched their fourth win in their fourth game at 106: 98 against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Stephen Curry scored 23 points, Damien Lee from the bench 20. OKC, without a win, did not help Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 30 points either.
