Warriors Take Game 5
The Golden State warriors keep their title hopes alive as they pull of the 120-111 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.
Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors with 31 points, seven rebounds and six assists as teammate Klay Thompson poured in 27 points of his own.
"We just did what we're supposed to do. We're supposed to win at home," Curry said. "We know what we still have to do going forward. We knew if we didn't win we were going home. There's no other motivation you need."
The warriors were excellent from the free-throw line as they went 31-of-34 on the night.
The Warriors were able to bypass the onslaught of Kevin Durant (40 points and 10 rebounds) and Russell Westbrook (31 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds).
"We didn't shoot a particularly good percentage when we got into the lane and got into the deep paint," Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. "We had our opportunities."
The Thunder will now host game 6 on Saturday night as the Warriors try to push the series to a decisive Game 7.
