Could the Warriors finally be embracing their role as the NBA’s villains? The first half of Monday’s game in Oklahoma City was a good start.

With 5.3 seconds to go in the first half, Steph Curry got into a heated exchange with the Thunder’s Semaj Christon before a jump ball. Russell Westbrook quickly intervened and the incident escalated from there. Both Westbrook and Curry needed be held back as Draymond Green joined the scuffle.

Curry, Westbrook, Green and Christon were all assessed with technical fouls, but no punches were thrown and no players were ejected.

The Warriors, though, would have the last laugh as Curry drained an open 3 at the buzzer and ran towards the locker room.

That was one way to silence the crowd.
