NBA: Emotions already high between Golden State and OKC

By Brian Yalung

Steph Curry and Semaj Christon almost came to blows following some nudging during a jump ball in Oklahoma City.

With only 5.3 seconds left before the half, both almost went at it as both were jockeying for position.

Draymond Green and Russell Westbrook would soon join the fray as they tried to defend their respective teammates. Players from both sides joined into pull away all the player involved.

All four players were given technical fouls. When order was restored, Curry drilled a three-pointer at the buzzer.

That shot allowed the Warriors to take a commanding 59-39 lead at the half.
