The Thunder came into this game knowing that they had to play the Golden State Warriors for a chance at the NBA Finals. What the Thunder didn’t know is that they’ve been watching the wrong Splash Brother in this series. Klay Thompson came out tonight and carried the Golden State Warriors to a victory over OKC. The Thunder had a great pace going the whole game where they had the lead between 3-8 points throughout. The defending champions saw that as an opportunity to make sure that the door was still cracked open. Klay Thompson had 41 points tonight and also set the record for most 3 pointers in a playoff game with 11. The previous record was 9 3 pointers and he said in the press conference “I felt I should of had 13 3 pointers”. The Warriors will have home court advantage bringing this back to Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Thunder still are holding their heads high knowing that they will have a chance to actually play them again in an arena they’ve won at already.

The Thunder will need their supporting cast and the dynamic duo to come out to play if they want to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals. KD and Westbrook combined for 57 points and they needed a couple more points to try to hold off the Warriors. KD and Westbrook both had turnovers in the 4th quarter that were crucial but those won’t be the case on Monday. They both look determined to try to make sure this series doesn’t affect their legacies. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook know its win or go home and their looking forward to the challenge.

Game 7 will be on Memorial Day at 8pm as the winner will be crowned the Western Conference champions and go on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.
