Klay Thompson made a playoff-record 11 3-pointers and scored 41 points, and the defending champion Golden State Warriors forced a seventh game in the Western Conference finals with a 108-101 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. Stephen Curry bounced back from a slow start to finish with 29 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Oklahoman/AP
Kevin Durant scored 29 points and Russell Westbrook added 28 for the Thunder. But Durant made just 10 of 31 shots and Westbrook was 10 of 27. Trying to become the 10th team to overcome a 3-1 deficit, the Warriors trailed much of the game and were behind by eight going to the fourth quarter. Oklahoman/AP
Q: How frustrating was the loss to the team? Andre Roberson: "It is definitely a little frustrating, especially losing in front of your home crowd. The chance to clinch the Finals berth and losing on your home court is definitely kind of frustrating, but we know we've still got a chance to go out there and win the last game. We have won there before. Why not do it again?" Oklahoman
Andre Iguodala is always a calming influence for the Warriors. In Saturday night’s Game 6, he managed to completely fluster the Oklahoma City Thunder on their home court. Iguodala channeled the 2015 NBA Finals MVP version of himself in the closing minutes of the Warriors’ 108-101 victory, a win that tied the Western Conference finals 3-3 and sent the series back to Oakland for Monday’s Game 7.
