The Golden State Warriors hold all the momentum heading into game seven of their mammoth Western Conference Finals series with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Having been 3-1 down to the third seed in the west, the Warriors have won back-to-back games, including a thrilling encounter at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, to level the series.

The decider takes place at the Oracle Arena on Monday night and the defending champions will be hoping they can rekindle their rivalry with the Cleveland Cavaliers with another win over Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and co.

Speaking on his team's day off, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said his players had taught him nothing new in the past week but had merely confirmed what he already knew.

He said: "I've learned that our players are tough, they're mentally tough. I don't know if I really learned that. I already knew that. But they've firmly confirmed that. It's been a great comeback. Now we still have to play. We still have another game."

The Dubs are now the overwhelming favourites to advance to the Finals having overturned the deficit, and they have Klay Thompson to thank for a monstrous game six performance.

The All-Star shooting guard dropped 11 threes in Oklahoma City to hand the Warriors a 108-101 win. More of the same will be needed to ensure their season rolls on. It's going to be interesting.
