Oklahoma City Thunder regained control of their best of seven Western Conference final against the Golden State Warriors after winning game three.

After a series-opening victory, Oklahoma were pulled back by Steph Curry and the record breaking Warriors on Wednesday in game two.

However Oklahoma produced a stunning performance on home court on Sunday to move a step closer to the NBA championship game.

Like in Game one Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook did the damage against the Warriors.

Durant scored 33 points, making 10 of 15 shots on the night while Westbrook chipped in with 30 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds as Oklahoma cruised to a 133-105 victory.

The Warriors – who set a new NBA recrod with 73 victories in the regular season – will now look to level the series again in Tuesday’s Game four which stays in Oklahoma City.
