Klay Helps Warriors Finish Off Grizz, Celtics Win To Set Up Game 7 In Boston

Jonathan Grant | May 14th, 2022

The Golden State Warriors are headed to the Western Conference Finals, and a big part of why is because of ‘Game 6’ Klay. Klay Thompson, obviously, is one of the better players in the entire league, but for whatever reason, he really comes alive when it’s time for a Game 6. Friday night was one such occasion, and he showed up, dropping 30 points on the Grizzlies at home while putting three years of hard work and frustration behind him. 24 of those 30 were from three-pointers from the sharpshooter while fellow hotshot Steph Curry posted 29 points in the 110-96 victory.

They will now await the victor of Dallas and Phoenix, which will see their Game 7 tip-off on Sunday. Also tipping off on Sunday will be another Game 7 as the Boston Celtics won on Friday evening to confirm that. On the road in Milwaukee, the C’s needed a big win, and they got just that as Jayson Tatum recorded a ridiculous 46 points in a fairly comfortable 108-95 win. It’s the fourth game in the series that has gone to the visitors and marked the third consecutive result as such. Boston, who did concede 44 points and 20 rebounds to Giannis here, will hope that trend does not continue as they return to their Garden on Sunday for the decider.
