OKLAHOMA CITY: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in first round.
COACH: Billy Donovan (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Russell Westbrook (25.4 ppg, 10.3 apg, 10.1 rpg), G Dennis Schroder (19.4 ppg, 6.2 apg, Atlanta), F Paul George (21.9 ppg), F Patrick Patterson (3.9 ppg), C Steven Adams (13.9 ppg, 9.0 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Carmelo Anthony, C Nick Collison
KEY ADDITIONS: Schroder, C Nerlens Noel, G/F Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Schroder. He was a dynamic scorer in Atlanta with a less talented team around him. He'll begin the season as a starter as Andre Roberson recovers from a knee injury and he'll get a chance to seize the job, especially if he can improve defensively. He has been outstanding as a scorer and as a facilitator in the preseason. He could have a big season with Westbrook and George drawing most of the attention. His addition means the Thunder will have five capable scorers in the starting lineup, a rarity for the franchise in recent years.
OUTLOOK: The Thunder shocked many when they were able to keep George this summer, and they also kept versatile, athletic forward Jerami Grant. By making the deal to move Anthony and add Schroder, the Thunder became younger, more athletic and more dynamic. If they can find some outside shooting this season to take advantage of their multiple shot creators, they could make a deep run in the West.
GOLDEN STATE: LAST SEASON: 58-24, NBA champions.
COACH: Steve Kerr (fifth season)
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Stephen Curry (26.4 ppg), G Klay Thompson (20.0 ppg), F Kevin Durant (26.4 ppg), F Draymond Green (11.0 ppg), C Kevon Looney (4.0 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C JaVale McGee, C David West, C Zaza Pachulia
KEY ADDITIONS: C DeMarcus Cousins, G Damion Lee, G Jacob Evans, F Jonas Jerebko
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Once Cousins returns to full health from his recovery after left Achilles tendon surgery, the Warriors could have an all-All-Star starting five. Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney made key contributions during the playoffs and will certainly be more heavily featured in Kerr's rotations given the departures of McGee, West and Pachulia.
OUTLOOK: With two straight titles and three in the past four years, Kerr has been stressing that his players must enjoy their time together because there are no guarantees of what could come next after this season with unsettled contract situations for Durant, Green and Thompson to name a few. Curry is coming off what he considers one of his best offseason training programs and Durant has captured the past two NBA Finals MVP crowns. With LeBron James now on the Lakers after four straight finals against Golden State with Cleveland, has the West made big enough offseason strides to keep up with star-studded Warriors?
Warriors begin quest for 3rd straight championship against Thunder

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors begin their quest to be the first to win three straight NBA championships in nearly two decades when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in the nightcap of the league's opening day double-header on Tuesday night.

Kevin Durant will go up against his former team for the eighth time since leaving as a free agent in 2016, but likely won't go head-to-head with longtime teammate Russell Westbrook, who is expected to begin the season on the sidelines following arthroscopic knee surgery.

The club split their four-game season series a year ago, with the Thunder winning the first two contests, including a 20-point blowout at Golden State on Feb. 6.

Oklahoma City newcomer Dennis Schroder, who was imported from Atlanta in a three-team deal in July that saw Carmelo Anthony eventually wind up in Houston, recalls watching previous Thunder-Warriors matchups for their high drama quotient.

"It was always entertaining," he said. "Watching that game, you were already excited at home because it's so much intensity they're playing with."

Schroder is expected to team with Westbrook in the backcourt this season. For now, he'll be paired with Terrance Ferguson, who played 64 minutes in the preseason and took just eight shots.

More of an offensive burden will fall upon Paul George, who averaged 29.0 points in Oklahoma City's two wins over the Warriors last season, but was held to 12.5 points per game in the two losses.

The Thunder had a penchant for knocking off the big boys last season, going 6-3 against the clubs with the three best records in the regular season -- Golden State, Houston and Toronto.

The Warriors, meanwhile, open the season at home in a marquee matchup for the third consecutive season. The previous two have not gone well, with San Antonio and Houston ruining ring-ceremony night with stunning wins the last two years.

Playing at home wasn't necessarily an advantage for the Warriors last season, as they finished with the same record in Oakland (29-12) as on the road (29-12).

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, whose team won nine fewer games in the regular season last season than the year before while leading the league in technical fouls, has stressed having fun as the goal of this year's regular season.

"I'm going to soak it all up," assured Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, one of the team's three key pending free agents this season along with Durant and DeMarcus Cousins. "We just have to stay focused and enjoy every night. If we have the joy and focus, we'll be great."

The Warriors are seeking to become the first team to three-peat in the NBA since the Lakers did it from 2000-02. They will do so with basically the same core as last season, until Cousins returns from Achilles surgery probably sometime between Christmas and the All-Star break.

The opener pits last season's league leader in turnovers forced (Oklahoma City, 16.0) against the club that committed the fifth-most giveaways (Golden State, 15.4).

The Warriors totaled 47 turnovers in their two losses to the Thunder last year, then took better care of the ball in the final two meetings, losing it just 27 times.

The Thunder has won all three of its season openers since Billy Donovan took over as coach, beating San Antonio, Philadelphia and New York.
