24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The Warriors and Thunder went at it in an exciting Game 5 at Oracle Arena on Thursday night. Kevin Durant dropped 40 points to go with 7 rebounds, but, it wasn’t enough to close this series out and return to the NBA Finals for what would be the first time since 2012.
League MVP Steph Curry went off for 31 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals to save the Warriors season. Klay Thompson added 27 big points to help lead the defending champs to the 120-111 win.
After forcing two consecutive clutch Kevin Durant turnovers, Curry was fired up as he walked over to the sideline screaming “We ain’t going home!”.
The Warriors are set to play the most important game of their lives on Saturday in Oklahoma City.
