NBA playoffs: Warriors prevail in Game 7 to win Western Conference Final


05-31-2016 15:56 BJT

With basketball and Game 7 of the Western Conference Final as the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors were hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder. Reigning MVP Steph Curry and the Dubs clawed back from 3-1 down in the best of seven series after the Thunder threatened to put a sad end to their record breaking 73 win regular season. But only nine teams in the history of the NBA have ever come back from such a deficit, so could the Warriors become number 10?

Klay Thompson set an NBA playoff record with 11 threes in Game 6, and Kevin Durant knows he needs a big night at the Oracle Arena.

And it would be all Thunder in the first half as Russell Westbrook lobs to Andre Roberson for the flush and OKC lead by 13.

But Thompson leads the comeback with four triples in a row including this one. 21 for Klay this night.

Dying seconds of the second quarter and Westbrook somehow gets this to go plus the foul. Tremendous reactions from Russ who would have 19 points.

But the warriors will get the last laugh before half when Curry streaks down the court and throws it up high off the glass. Count it, but G-State trail by six.

Now tied at 54 with six minutes left in the third, and Curry from the land beyond, one of seven threes for the MVP in this game.

And when Anderson Varejao scoops in this deuce, it's 12 unanswered points from the champs who lead by 13.

But the Thunder find their way back in the fourth quarter as Durant stops and pops for two of his team high 27 points and the lead is down to four.

Thirty seconds left on the clock and Curry looking to extend the posession, but he gets free with a quick move and then knocks down the dagger. Game high 36 points for the Chef as he buries the Thunder with yet another trey.

Heartbreak for Durant as Golden State wins 96-88 to become only the tenth team to comeback from a 3-1 series deficit. The Warriors claim the Western Conference trophy for the second year in a row and will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals with Game One in Oakland on Thursday night.
