Klay Thompson, Warriors return to Finals after vintage performance vs. Mavs

SAN FRANCISCO – With a little over three minutes to go in the Western Conference Finals, Klay Thompson had a pull-up jumper in the lane rejected by Spencer Dinwiddie. No worries — Thompson finagled the rebound and immediately found himself at the elbow, where he rose up for another two. No dice — he air balled it. Kevon Looney scooped up the rebound — one of his 18 — as Thompson re-positioned himself to the right corner. The ball found its way back to Klay, and this time he sank a three, his eighth of the game. And the Mavs’ comeback that had the faintest glimmer of hope had finally been extinguished. The Warriors took a 15-point lead and punched their ticket back to the NBA Finals.
