Stephen Curry scored 31 points as the defending champion Golden State Warriors kept their record-setting season alive with a 120-111 win over Oklahoma City in game five of their Western Conference playoff. "We did what we are supposed to the do -- win at home," said Curry. After a record-setting 73 regular season wins, desperation set in for Golden State on Thursday as they trimmed the Thunder's lead to 3-2 in the series.
(Reuters) - Andrew Bogut responded to his coach's challenge with a big game for the Golden State Warriors as they kept alive their NBA season on Thursday. Before Game Five of their Western Conference final against Oklahoma City, Steve Kerr said he needed his Australian center to stay out of foul trouble early and contribute more minutes to his team's waning hopes of winning consecutive championships. Bogut came through, picking up just one foul in the first half and three the entire game, playing an important role in the Warriors' 120-111 victory that sends the series back to Oklahoma with the Thunder leading 3-2 going into Saturday's Game Six.
