The Golden State Warriors have forced a game seven in the Western Conference Finals after a 108-101 road win at the Chesapeake Energy Arena against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Thanks to a magnificent effort from Klay Thompson - who dropped a playoff record 11 three-pointers en route to 41 points - the Warriors remain in with a shout of retaining the Larry O'Brien trophy after appearing dead and buried after four games.

With the series now tied at 3-3, the top-seeded Warriors now have the chance to advance to the NBA Finals on Monday night at their Oracle Arena.

For long spells, it had looked like the Thunder would go on to finish the job and they opened up a 13-lead in the first quarter.

However, Thompson was scorching hot from deep and went 11 of 18 from beyond the arc to make Oklahoma City pay for all their missed opportunities down the stretch.

Russell Westbrook had four turnovers in the final 1:40 of the game and Stephen Curry took advantage of a Kevin Durant turnover to level the game up at 99-99 with 2:47 remaining.

The final minutes were key to this game and the Thunder looked like a side who did not know how to go on and see the game out. The Warriors, on the other hand, showed their true class in the closing stages and all the momentum surely switches back to the defending champions after their back-to-back victories.

Curry ended up on 29 points, the exact same as Durant, while Westbrook dropped 28 of his own with 11 assists and nine rebounds, but to no avail.
