Kevon Looney (illness) ruled out for Warriors on Tuesday

Kevon Looney (illness) ruled out for Warriors on Tuesday

Zaza Pachulia is set to start at center against Steven Adams and the Thunder.

Golden State Warriors power forward Kevon Looney (flu-like symptoms) will not play on Tuesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Warriors second unit scored 38 points between them on 18-26 shooting to blow away a Thunder bench which scored just 14 points in a combined 68 minutes of play.

Quinn Cook followed up a great season in the G League with yet another impeccable display, becoming the first player in the league's 17-year history to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor, 40 percent from three and 90 percent from the free-throw line throughout the season. A versatile defender who can defend guards switching off ball-screens, Looney averaged 6.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.2 steals in March.

The Warriors built a 12 point lead in the third quarter, before the Thunder took the lead late in the quarter on a 3-pointer by Russell Westbrook, who had 44 points and 16 rebounds, plus 6 assists.

Westbrook didn't get much offensive help, with Paul George scoring 20 points, but making just 5 of 19 from the field.

Oklahoma City, which is a half-game behind the fourth-seeded Spurs and a half-game ahead of the sixth-seeded Jazz, is coming off a 109-104 win over the Pelicans on Sunday.
