Down eight points on the road entering the fourth quarter and facing elimination in the Western Conference Finals is not a great place to be — unless you’re Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors. A hot-shooting Thompson kept his squad in the fight burying six 3-pointers through three periods in Game 6 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, yet the record-setting, 73-win Warriors still found themselves on the ropes with 12 minutes to play. Then Thompson really started cooking as he hit one big shot after another, shooting 6 of 9 from the field and 5 of 6 from downtown to bring Golden State back from the brink. His final triple of the fourth off an assist from Andre Iguodala was the dagger that broke a 101-101 tie with 1:35 remaining, and the Thunder never scored again as Thompson and company ended the game on a 9-0 run. Thompson shot 11 for 18 from beyond the arc for a playoff career-high of 41 points, and the 11 treys were a single-game postseason record at the time. Golden State kept its season alive thanks to Thompson’s long-range heroics with a 108-101 victory on May 28, 2016, picking up a Game 7 triumph two nights later to advance to the NBA Finals for an unforgettable showdown with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
