MANILA, Philippines – The Golden State Warriors had spent the previous 3 games on the verge of elimination, on the verge of having their record-setting 73-9 regular season go for naught. In the end it came down to a dominant second half march by the defending NBA champions, which was capped off by this 3-pointer by Stephen Curry in the dying seconds of Game 7 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Stephen Curry had another NBA MVP-esque performance, scoring 36 points on 7-of-12 shooting from downtown, to go along with 8 assists and 5 rebounds, while Klay Thompson scored 21 points on 6-of-11 3-point shooting to defeat the Thunder, 96-88, in Oakland, California on Tuesday, May 31.
Curry’s final heartbreaker came with just inside of 30 seconds to play as he danced around Andre Roberson before burying the triple.
The Warriors will next face the Cleveland Cavaliers in a rematch of their 2015 NBA Finals series, which the Warriors won in 6 games. – Rappler.com
