Ryan is a Farmington native who enjoys all things basketball, particularly when it involves the Detroit Pistons. He spends much of his free time combing through NBA archives and curating footage of meaningless late-90's regular season performances for mass consumption.

Klay Thompson connected on an NBA playoff record 11 3-pointers, dragging his team back from an eight-point fourth quarter deficit and leading the Golden State Warriors to a 108-101 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, forcing a do-or-die Game 7 in what has been a back-and-forth Western Conference Finals series.

Thompson, who was 11-of-18 from the arc in all, scored 19 in the final period, combining with backcourt mate and unanimous MVP Stephen Curry to score 70 of their team’s 108 points. Curry countered Thompson’s playoff career-high 41 points with 29 points of his own (8-of-21) while falling one assist shy of a triple-double in the process.

Oklahoma City held a three-point lead with under three minutes remaining on Saturday, before Curry broke loose for a game-tying triple near the top of the key. Moments later, with the game knotted at 101, Thompson wasted no time in turning a Russell Westbrook turnover into a lead-seizing triple at the other end.

Nursing a three-point lead of their own in the game’s final seconds, Curry sealed the deal with a right-handed floater off the glass over the outstretched arms of Serge Ibaka, wrapping up five minutes of agony for the Thunder.

The two teams now head to Oakland for Game 7 on Monday, when Golden State’s last stand tips off at 9:00 p.m. ET. A road team has not won in Game 7 of a conference finals series since 2005, when the Detroit Pistons eliminated the Miami Heat.
