Golden State Warriors awoke after sleeping through most of the first three quarters to send Memphis home and terminate their season.
The Golden State Warriors didn’t want to return to Memphis for Game 7. But you’d never know it from the first three quarters of Game 6.
The Golden State Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies 32-19 in the last period of Game 6 despite a slew of errors and bad shooting from Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole. Golden State eliminates the Grizzlies with a 110-96 victory and advances to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in three years.
The Warriors tries to re-establish themselves at Chase Center Friday night. After getting run out of the arena in Game 5 and falling down by more than 50 points. With a Game 6 comes Game 6 Klay, of course.
Thompson led all scorers with 17 points in the first half. But the Warriors were only able to take a 2-point advantage into halftime due to 12 turnovers. Thompson led the club in scoring with 30 points on 11-of-22 shooting from the field.
Meanwhile, Jordan Poole, who excelled in the first round of the playoffs against Denver. Had a dismal shooting night for the Warriors. He went 4-for-15 from the field on Friday, including 2-for-11 from outside the three-point line.
Curry, who had 14 points in Game 5, had a sluggish start as well. However, he scored 11 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter. Helping the Warriors to an 18-3 lead late in the game.
The Warriors have now advanced to their sixth Western Conference Finals in eight seasons, the most recent being in 2019. They’ll face the winner of the series between the Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks. Which is set for a Game 7 on Sunday.
