FINAL: GSW 125 - POR 121
Game 5 of the Western Conference Semi Finals came down to the wire with a tight 4th quarter thanks to CJ McCollum who scored 16 of his 27 points in the 4th quarter.
The MVP Steph Curry finished with 29 points, 5 rebounds, 11 assists and hit two deep contested 3 pointers late in the 4th quarter to drown the Blazers hopes of forcing a game 6 in Portland.
Klay Thompson was also huge factor for the Warriors tonight dropping 33 points on 13-17 shooting, and 6-9 from deep.
The pairing of Dame and CJ didn't disappoint, Lillard averaging 31.8 points and McCollum 21.4 points for the series. Hats off to the Portland Trail Blazers for making this somewhat of a series. We are talking about a team that was projected to finish bottom 3, to somehow grinding out a 44 win season, and then finding themselves competing in the Western Conference Semi Finals is nothing short of incredible.
The Warriors will get some rest as they wait to see who they will be meeting in the WCF, as Thunder have a 3-2 series lead over the San Antonio Spurs with a chance to close out the series at home.
