Golden State Warriors Eliminate Memphis Grizzlies to Advance to Western Conference Finals

Klay Thompson knocked down eight three-pointers on his way to 30 points, Stephen Curry scored 29 with six threes, and the Golden State Warriors advanced to the Western Conference Finals by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 110-96 in Game 6 on Friday night.

Curry found his shooting late and made two straight baskets late in the third for a 78-77 lead going into the final 12 minutes. Draymond Green contributed 14 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists. Kevon Looney grabbed 22 rebounds and Andrew Wiggins scored 10 of his 18 points in the fourth with a pair of timely 3s.

Golden State – knocked out by Memphis in the play-in tournament last year – endured a tough streak to advance to the conference finals for the first time since 2019, as the franchise reached its fifth straight NBA final before losing to Toronto in the deciding Game 6.

The third-seeded Warriors will face the winner of Phoenix-Dallas in the conference final. Game 7 of that series is in Phoenix on Sunday.
