(AllHipHop News) The Oklahoma City Thunder, who once held a 3-1 lead over the juggernaut that is The Golden State Warriors, are heading home after losing Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, 96-88.
After being defeated three straight games, Kevin During and Oklahoma City found themselves in an intense battle to stay alive at Oracle Arena. But Oklahoma City could not withstand Golden States’ three-point shooting.
Steph Curry racked up 36 points and sank seven three-pointers. He also set an NBA record by making 32 three point shots in a seven game series. Klay Thompson ended the night with 21 points, landing six three-pointers of his own.
Oklahoma City led by as many as 13 points in the first half. However, the tide turned in the third quarter with Golden State outscoring their opposition 29-12.
Kevin Durant’s 29 points and the 19 points Russell Westbrook added were solid attempts, but their efforts were just not enough to stop Golden State.
According to NBA.com, 10 teams in history have come back from such a deficit to win a series. Golden State is the third team in history to rally from being down 3-1 to take a trip to The Finals.
Bay area rapper Lil B showed no mercy to his rival Kevin Durant and The Oklahoma City Thunder.
Lil B took to Twitter right after the loss to take full credit, and chastised anyone who doubted the 2011 curse he cast upon Kevin Durant was real, especially after Golden State’s improbable come back.
Rapper E-40 took over The Bleacher Report’s Snapchat during the game. He sat court side and showcased some behind the scenes Snaps. Snoop predicted Golden State would win, as did rapper Game and Oakland’s Too $hort.
E-40 showed a text message with Memphis rapper and “Law” collaborator Yo Gotti offering to bet up to a whopping $50,000 on Oklahoma City.
“He said he wanted to bet me $35,000, $40,000. I said ‘I spent that on the seats,'” E-40 laughed.
The Golden State Warriors will move on to face LeBron James and The Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday (June 2) in Oakland during a highly anticipated rematch of the the 2015 Finals.
And they said the curse was not real " The BasedGod" has never lied to me and like he told us.. The Warriors are going to the finals – Lil B
