The Unworthy One - Warriors owner Joe Lacob, Klay Thompson
Less than a week ago, the possibility to go to Game 7 seemed very unlikely. A scenario eerily similar to the 2012 San Francisco Giants in the National League Championship series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Like the Warriors, the Giants were down 3 games to 1.
Warriors-Thunder Game 5 took place in Oakland, and the Warriors won, 120-111.
Game 6 returned to Oklahoma City. An away game and having been blown out 2 previous times, the Warriors would have to win, or end a record-breaking 73-9 season and go home.
Go home, yes. Eliminated, no.
Oklahoma City held the lead for most of Game 6. The quieter Splash Brother sinks 11 3-point goals, his most important one, was to take the lead for good at 104 - 101 with 1:35 left in the game. He finished with 19 of his playoff high 41 in the 4th quarter.
This game is adding to the long library of unforgettable games in Warriors franchise history.
