After a Game 5 win in which the back-to-back MVP screamed “We ain’t going home,” in those final moments, the defending champions pulled out a 108-101 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6 at Chesapeake Arena on Saturday night that left the sellout crowd of 18,203 stunned and, one can expect, scared. “About time we had a stretch in this building where we imposed our will,” Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.
Thompson did everything he could to get the Warriors to a Game 7, hitting 11 three-pointers to set a single-game postseason record. He finished with 41 points (14 of 30 shooting), while Curry had had 29 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. The Thunder, as always, were led by Westbrook (28 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds) and Durant (29 points seven rebounds, three assists). But they shot just 42.2%. “They switched everything, they closed up the paint and they got hot from three,” Durant said about the final few minutes.
