Klay Thompson scored a game-high 27 points on 11-of-13 shooting, including five-of-six from three-point range, and Kevin Durant added 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to power Golden State.

"We're a championship club. We know what it takes this time of year in order to win," said forward Draymond Green. "We're primed for this. A lot of people have tended to forget what we're capable of. But we know, and we intend to show that."
