Welcome ladies and Gents to our coverage of game 5 of the Western Conference finals. I am @alexcatto33 and I shall be your *expert* play by play writer today. Oklahoma City lead the series 3-1 and according to NBA.com/stats the Thunder have a 96.1% of taking out the series.

They will be looking to see this one up today. It's difficult to write Golden State off however. If anyone can pull something off this special it is them. They will be looking for a big game from Steph Chrry, who hasn't been 100% since his MCL scare.

We await tip off shortly.

Golden State lost only 1 game at home during the regular season. They haven't looked nearly as menacing in this round. Yet, Oracle arena is sold out and bouncing.

Q1 9:30 Hot start from both teams early. Barnes hits a three, Curry on the board. Durant and Roberson on the board for OKC.

Q1 8:45 Bought with the finish from the Alley! Golden state look sharp. Adams already on the bench with foul trouble.

Q1 8:14 Westbrook drives hard to the rack but DENIED! Draymond Green with the massive block. Curry hits a ridiculous leaning long two in transition. Great start here for the Warriors. Timeout OKC.

GSW still looking to leave Andre Roberson alone. They are continuing to use his man to shadow the Westbrook/Durant drive.

Q1 6:20 Physical start. Thompson and Westbrook both hit tough contested jumpers.

Q1 5:50 Bogut getting going early 4pts 4reb. Warriors defense been immense so far. Thunder need to run some horns sets to get the offense moving.
