They were at the edge of the finals. They had up to three match balls, but the Warriors were saving one after the other. Especially memorable was Game 6, with the tie still 3-2 in favor of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

At that time Kevin Durant still wore the same shirt as Russell Westbrook, and both, in that sixth game, colored his usual statistical sheet. The base skated the triple-double with 28 points, 9 rebounds and 11 assists, while KD scored 27 points and captured 7 rebounds.

However, between both accumulated the barbarity of 58 free-throws, for a success of of only 35.65% in field goals. On the other side, his opponent saw to the hoop more easily. Stephen Curry closed the night with 31 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists and a hit of 40.9% in his shooting car.

But who really impressed Harrison Barnes, at that time a member of that memorable quintet, today in the prow of the Dallas Mavericks and in the stern of the classification, was the other ‘Splash Brother’, Klay Thompson.

His performance of 41 points with 45.2% in field goals and 11 of 18 in triples, in his opinion was decisive to win the game and finally lift the series.
