OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Golden State Warriors have forced a Game 7 in the NBA's Western Conference finals with a fourth-quarter comeback at Oklahoma City.
Klay Thompson poured in 19 of his game-high 41 points while the Warriors outscored the Thunder 33-18 in the final period of a 108-101 victory. Thompson drained a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:35 remaining and added a pair of free throws in the closing seconds to ice the win.
Thompson set an NBA playoff record by hitting 11 3-pointers. Golden State shot 21-for-44 from beyond the arc.
The Thunder led 97-93 until Stephen (STEH'-fehn) hit back-to-back 3-pointers to tie it with under three minutes to play. Curry shot just 8-for-21 but finished one assist shy of a triple double, providing 29 points and 10 rebounds.
Draymond Green had 14 points and 12 boards for the Warriors who lost their previous two playoff games in Oklahoma City by a combined 52 points.
The Thunder outscored the Warriors in each of the first three quarters to take an eight-point lead before Golden State won for the second straight game. Kevin Durant scored 29 points and Russell Westbrook added 28, but they shot a combined 34 percent from the field and were a miserable 1-for-13 from 3-point range.
Game 7 is Monday in Oakland, where the Warriors will attempt to become the 10th time in league playoff history to win a series after trailing 3-1.
