Warriors 108, Thunder 101 (Series tied 3-3)

In one of the best postseason games in recent memory, the Warriors embarked on a late 9-0 run to steal victory from the Thunder at the Chesapeake Arena. Despite Russell Westbrook’s best efforts (28 points, 11 dimes, 9 boards), Klay Thompson was simply too much for OKC to handle. Thompson hit an NBA postseason record 11 3-pointers and finished with 41 points, propelling the Warriors to a deciding Game 7 at Oracle Arena. After the game, Thompson described his feelings succinctly:

“What a game. What a game. The NBA should thank us for that game.”

Despite finishing with 29 points, Kevin Durant shot a woeful 10-31 from the field while committing a crucial turnover late in regulation. Golden State received double-doubles from Draymond Green (14 points, 12 boards) and Stephen Curry in the winning effort (20 points, 10 rebounds). Tonight’s stunning development has set up a Game 7 showdown on Memorial Day…who can be mad at that?
