It may only be pre-season but the Golden State Warriors gave everyone a glimpse of their capabilities last night against their division rivals the L.A. Clippers. 

After falling to the Toronto Raptors in their opening exhibition game, the Dubs returned to the Oracle Arena and cruised to an emphatic 120-75 win off the back of big scoring nights from Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson.

The Olympic gold medal-winning duo combined for 51 points, shooting 9-13 from three-point land, as Stephen Curry also chipped in with 14. 

Los Angeles limited the minutes of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul but it was still a devastating display from the 2015 champions as everything clicked in KD's first home game.

Thompson led all scorers with his game-high 30 points coming from a 71.4 field goal percentage and found himself open on numerous occasions as the Clippers failed to live with their fluidity. 

With less than six minutes gone in the opening quarter, all four of the Warriors' All-Star starters had found their range from behind the arc - a sight you can expect to see throughout the season.

It's too early to get overly excited about this performance, after all, they lost game one of pre-season, but it's clear to see the Warriors will hand out some huge beating during the campaign.
