Golden State Warriors beat Thunder, advance to NBA Finals

The Golden State Warriors completed their NBA Western Conference Finals comeback on Monday night, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-88 to set up a face-off with LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals for a second year in a row. Warriors guard Steph Curry notched 36 points, plus eight assists and five rebounds, while Klay Thompson scored 21 points, while the Golden State defense muted the Thunder. Kevin Durant had a pretty good night, scoring 27 points, but his team shot just 38 percent overall. The Warriors are only the 10th NBA team to come back from a 3-1 deficit in a seven-game series.
