The Oklahoma City Thunder are just one win away from a major upset and a place in the NBA championship game after beating the Golden State Warriors in Game four of the Western Conference final.

The Warriors – who set a new NBA regular season record of 73 wins – are on the brink of elimination after going 3-1 down in the best-of-seven series.

MVP Steph Curry was limited to just 19 points on the night hitting 6 from his 20 shots.

Contrasting performance from Russell Westbrook who hit a game high 36 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for the Thunder.

It was his first triple-double of the playoffs after posting 18 in the regular season.

Kevin Durant added 26 points while Andre Roberson chipped in with a career-high 17 points and 12 rebounds.

Oklahoma were in dominant mood on home court and that was highlighted by their 118-94 victory.

The Warriors must win Game 5 on Thursday in Oakland to keep their season alive while one more win for the Thunder will put the franchise in it’s fourth NBA final and first since 2012 which they lost to the Miami Heat.
