Kevin Durant exploded for a career-high 54 points, stealing the show.
Steph Curry dropped in an easy 37, his shot allergic to the rim.
Klay Thompson poured in 26, drilling six threes in an overshadowed performance.
The Thunder and Warriors combined for 248 points on Friday night, with OKC pulling out a 127-121 shootout in front of a raucous home crowd.
For both teams, the stars played like stars, the secondary guys filled their roles and the game turned into one of the more entertaining showdowns of the season.
But when assessing this matchup — this budding Thunder-Warriors rivalry — it probably wasn't even the pair's best duel this season.
Maybe not the second-best, either.
In their first two games, both in November, the Thunder and Warriors played to an almost impossible standstill.
Out in Oakland, the Warriors won the first game 116-115, needing a desperation fadeaway buzzer-beater from Andre Igoudala to pull off the victory.
Fifteen days later, in eerily similar fashion, the Thunder capped a wild late sequence with an equally tough Russell Westbrook fadeaway, stealing a 113-112 overtime win in OKC.
The combined score through two games: Thunder 228, Warriors 228.
The combined score after Friday night: Thunder 355, Warriors 349. Lotta points, not a lotta separation.
“They've been great games,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. “I'm sure Scott (Brooks) would say the same. As a fan of the game, it's great to watch. These are two teams playing the right way, getting after it, with a lot of respect for one another.”
What Friday night's game lacked in late drama, it made up for with individual greatness.
Durant had arguably his best game as a pro, putting up those 54 points on a ridiculously efficient 19-of-28 shooting.
And the reason he needed all 54 were because of Curry and Thompson, the sharpshooting duo, nicknamed the Splash Brothers, who combined for 63 points and 12-of-19 from three.
Three Thunder-Warriors games. Three classics.
The saddest part about a great night at the arena: It's the last game between these two in the regular season.
Now let's hope we can get seven of these come mid-May. That'll really give this budding rivalry, filled with stars who have yet to enter their prime, a warranted stage.
