The Oklahoma City Thunder witnessed a potentially scary injury take place on Wednesday night, the day before Thanksgiving, in a game against the Golden State Warriors.

Paul George had 25 points, nine rebounds and five assists and Steven Adams contributed 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Thunder sent the Warriors to their first four-game skid in almost six years.

The Thunder led from start to finish as they notched their 11th win of the season, handing the Warriors' their fourth-straight loss in the process.

The only downside for Oklahoma City was an ugly injury sustained by Hamidou Diallo.
