8:56 – No long-winded intro is needed tonight, folks. The Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder are facing off in a winner-take-all Game 7. The winner advances to the Finals and the loser goes home. Let’s get this show on the road!
9:00 – In honor of Memorial Day, here’s the GOAT national anthem performance.


9:03 – Wow, bold move from Kerr.

1Q 6:09 – The Thunder are up 11-10, and it’s been a very entertaining first 6 minutes. Steven Adams had a huge dunk, and Steph Curry hit a 3 from the parking lot.

1Q 2:34 – OKC’s up 21-15. Kevin Durant has definitely made a concerted effort to get his teammates more involved tonight.

And so far, so good.
End of 1Q – The Thunder are up 24-19, and they couldn’t have asked for a much better 1st quarter. After blowing Game 6 and playing in a hostile environment tonight, a fast start was an absolute necessity for OKC.
This pick-and-roll would make Stockton and Malone proud.

Nasty move, but Curry couldn’t finish it off.
2Q 9:49 – OKC’s up 28-19. Durant leads the Thunder with 7 points on a perfect 3-3 from the floor. Curry leads the Warriors with 8 points on 3-8 shooting from the floor. Game 6 hero Klay Thompson is struggling so far tonight, as he’s scored 1 point on 0-5 shooting from the floor.

2Q 7:01 – The Thunder are rolling! They have a 35-22 lead, and the Oracle Center sounds like a library right now. Kanter is giving OKC some big minutes off the bench. The center already has 8 points.

2Q 5:43 – OKC’s up 35-25. Westbrook and Roberson connected on a picture perfect alley-oop.

2Q 4:08 – And here come the Warriors! They’ve cut OKC’s lead to 4 points, and Thompson is heating up. After an 0-7 start, Thompson has hit 3 straight 3-pointers.

Game 7 emotions in a nutshell.
Halftime – OKC’s up 48-42. Russell Westbrook is a baaaadd man.

Adams and Green got tangled up.
That definitely looked like a quality DDT.

Ibaka had a huge block on Curry.

But Curry finished the half with an absurd buzzer beater.

Westbrook lead the Thunder with 14 points on 5-14 shooting from the floor. He also chipped in 4 boards, 7 assists, and 2 steals. Durant had 9 points on a super efficient 4-5 shooting from the floor.

Thompson had 13 points on 4-11 shooting from the floor, and Curry had 12 points on 5-11 shooting from the floor.
The Thunder are only 3-11 from 3-point range, while the Warriors are 7-17 from 3-point range. But OKC is winning the battle on the glass, as they’ve out-rebounded Golden State 29-24.
Such an underrated player.

3Q 7:57 – The GSW have cut the Thunder’s lead to 54-51 after hitting 3 straight 3-pointers. Curry, Thompson, and Iggy knocked them down.

3Q 4:16 – The Warriors are cooking right now, and they’ve taken a 59-56 lead. Golden State is 5-7 from 3-point range in the 3rd quarter.
3Q 2:07 – Golden State is up 64-58 and its their biggest lead of the night. Shaun Livingston had a nice and-one dunk.

End of 3Q – It was all Golden State in the 3rd. The Warriors outscored the Thunder 29-12 in the quarter and now have a 71-60 lead. You know it’s bad when Anderson Varejão is making you look foolish.

4Q 9:14 – The Warriors are up 73-66 with Ibaka at the line trying to finish a 3-point play. Waiters had a filthy step-back.

4Q 5:26 – Golden State’s up 82-75, and Steph Curry is a damn assassin.
4Q 2:57 – The Warriors are up 90-79, and the Thunder look done. They just don’t have any answer for Curry or Thompson.

4Q 1:40 – Durant just went on a 7-0 run to cut the Warriors lead 90-86. And the plot thickens.

4Q 26.8 – Golden State’s up 96-86. Curry just scored 6 straight to put this game on ice.
Final – The Warriors complete the 3-1 comeback with a 96-88 win. What a series.

The 3rd quarter did the Thunder in tonight. In the 1st, 2nd, and 4th quarters, OKC outscored Golden State by a total of 9 points. But unfortunately for OKC, they got smoked 29-12 in the 3rd.
It’s party time in the Bay Area!
Curry was unstoppable tonight, scoring 36 points on 13-24 shooting from the floor and 7-12 shooting from 3-point range. He also had 5 rebounds and 8 assists.
Thompson got off to a brutal start, as he missed his first 7 shots. But he ended up finding his stroke and finishing with 21 points.
Durant had 27 points on 10-19 shooting from the floor, and Westbrook had 19 points on 7-21 shooting from the floor.
3-pointers were clearly the difference tonight. The Warriors went 17-37 from 3-point range, while the Thunder went 7-27 from 3-point range.
The record-setting Warriors’ season will continue Thursday night in a Finals rematch against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
