The Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors Western Conference Finals series has been one of the best rivalries in recent memory.

It's been a ding-dong battle thus far and when the Thunder was leading the series 3-1, the reigning NBA champions looks to be in a precarious position.

There was even speculation at that point that Draymond Green would be suspended for a crucial game following an apparent punt to Steven Adams' groin.

Luckily for the Dubs, Green didn't suffer the same fate as the Cleveland Cavaliers' Dahntay Jones just one day earlier. The All-Star power foward struggling to make an impact in games three and four, but he has bounced back lately, collecting double-doubles in back-to-back Warriors victories to even the series.

Green knows all too well how intense this series has been and after staring elimination in the face, the runner-up in the Defensive Player of the Year voting described just how heated these games have gotten.

"Game five was a battle. This was a war," Green told ESPN's Ethan Strauss.

"We battled. We defended well. We gave ourselves a chance," Green

Indeed, they did. The momentum has swung in the Warriors' direction after tieing up the series and with game seven on their homecourt, Steve Kerr's men would back themselves at this point to go on and face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

Should the Thunder fail to advance, Kevin Durant and co. will know they could and should have booked their place in the Finals already.
