Rehabbing Russell Westbrook out for Thunder opener

Kevin Durant is one of the big stars Golden State will roll out in the upcoming NBA season

Stephen Curry had 32 points, eight rebounds and nine assists for the winners, with Kevin Durant adding 27 points, eight boards and six assists. "I think we're ready for it".

"It's special", Curry said about ring night after the game.

Their roster gained more experience than they ever could have imagined last postseason with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward out, and that will prove to be invaluable down the stretch of this year's playoffs.

Golden State has now reached the NBA Finals in four consecutive seasons, becoming the fifth franchise in league history to do so. Obviously, we're still trying to go for more. "We understand the process of kind of building up". Check out what the NBA's most hyperactive player was caught doing during his downtime on the bench Tuesday night.

"I was really encouraged and pleased with the way we came out in the third quarter", coach Billy Donovan said. Joel Embiid scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the 76ers while Australian guard Ben Simmons, last season's NBA Rookie of the Year, contributed 19 points, a game-high 15 rebounds, eight assists, four steals and two blocked shots.

The Warriors defeated visiting Oklahoma City Thunder at Oracle Arena 108-100 in a Western Conference showdown to start the season with a win.

They added it all was worth it to now have a souvenir of the time Prince Harry kicked them off the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Harry and Meghan will also visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand during their 16-day tour.

These teams met in a season opener for the first time - though the Warriors won on the road against the Seattle SuperSonics in 1983.

"Last year, at times it was a struggle for us".

Adams had a double-double for the Thunder with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Adams had been listed as questionable to play prior to tip off with back stiffness, but was given the all clear.

The Warriors will be presented with their rings, before a celebratory banner is unveiled.

Durant, who can decline his $31.5 million player option for the 2019-20 season and become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019, was surprisingly the last player introduced to the sold-out crowd during the team's championship ring ceremony. For Durant, it's his second-straight crown after winning Finals MVP honors in both triumphs over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
