The Thunder are back in the Western Conference Finals for the fourth time in six years.

Oklahoma City and Golden State tip off Game One Monday at 8 p.m. CT in Oakland.

The season series between these two teams didn't fare well for the Thunder as they went 0-3 against the Warriors. While OKC may not have beaten Golden State on the court, Thunder players did score more on payday.

In fact, Oklahoma City had the second-highest payroll in the NBA with $97,749,910. Kevin Durant led the way with a little more than $20 million this season.

Meanwhile, Golden State had the fourth-highest payroll in the NBA with $93,248,622. Surprisingly, Stephen Curry was only the fifth-highest Warrior in terms of salary.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were the team with the highest payroll for the 2015/2016 season at $108,593,052.
