Stephen Curry is hoping to be 100 percent in time for game one vs. Oklahoma City

The Golden State Warriors are preparing for their Western Conference Finals showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Their series with the Portland Trail Blazers was one of the cloest five-game competitions you're every likely to see and the five day break before their first outing against Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and co. will have done them the world of good.

Especially for Stephen Curry, who is still not at his peak having suffered a knee injury during the series with the Houston Rockets.

He returned after two weeks on the sidelines to score an NBA-record 17 points in overtime as the Warriors beat the Blazers in game five, however, he is still not at full capacity. But, speaking at practice on Friday, Curry said: ''Hopefully, it [his knee] will be close to 100 percent by Monday night.''

The Dubs will need a 100 percent Curry if they are to overcome the Thunder in what promises to be a series full of excitement and passion.

Westbrook and Durant look like they mean business in the postseason and sent the Spurs, who were coming off a franchise-best regular season, packing in six games.

Golden State have got this far with Curry missing a lot of the action, but now is the time for the back-to-back MVP to show why he is the man of the moment.
