As soon as the buzzer blows, Steph and Andre immediately hug on court. We all know what that means.

Fun to watch knowing all that happens after.

GSW had better go work on some inbounds plays. This is ridiculous. Can't get it to Steph. Then ANOTHER inbounds drama. Klay open way deep. But Jarrett Jack goes. He calmly hits the sealing free throws. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESH.

This is foreshadowing. This kind of panicked play late is going to burn them badly in San Antonio next series.

TURNOVER FROM KLAY INBOUNDS TO STEPH.

YEEEEEEEESH.

Denver had a layup to tie and a putback. Couldn't hit it.

One inbound to Steph... can they do it?

Faried misses ANOTHER FT. Hitting a decent rate would send this game to Denver Game 7.

Finally they get it to Steph. He's trapped deep. He whips a scary pass to Klay at halfcourt. Timeout.

Growing pains.

Andre lands an incredible 3. 3 point game, 55 sec left. They give it to Harrison to iso. WHAT IS THIS OFFENSE? Then Barnes gets a blocking foul. Two FTs to cut it to 1.

WILD ENDING. Dray throws ball away on inbound. Then makes up for it by blocking Lawson's layup. Yeeesh. That would have made it 2 pt lead with 1+ min to go.

Bogut with 21 rebounds. GSW messes up the inbounds. They look so young and inexperienced, learning a tough lesson about crunch time.

Andre actually hits another big 3. GSW up 6 with 1:41 left. Rookie Dray just hustles to make big plays. Steph makes clutch shots. Defense scrambles.

Steph sees a dunk for Bogut, but AB doesn't see it, so the pass goes into the stands.

That time Steph trapped, DEN jumps the release pass up top, then Klay gets to run a 3 v 2. It's awkward. Miss.

Andre making the right play, but not taking makeable close shots.

Steph with a GORGEOUS flip shot at 2:05.

I mentioned earlier that Barnes and Landry had a tough time running the 4 v 3 off Steph traps. Dray doing the job in tense time.

Dray hits 2 FTs in clutch time, 4:00 extending to 6 pt lead.

JaVale misses a big FT. Then ANOTHER.

3.27. Steph this time attacks the trap. Bogut screens. Steph keeps it, circles, finally forces help at the rim, dish to Bogut, misses the point blank shot and DRAYMOND WITH THE HUGE PUTBACK.

Steph gets trapped at half court, then the rookie Dray hits the layup on the short roll. Then Dray with a really really gutsy drive where he's bailed out of a charge.

One thing gumming up the offense is Steph doesn't have much to do when he spaces off-ball. This is the #1 thing Kerr did for Steph.

Game 6, yeesh, GSW blew a 17 point lead, down to 7 pts with 5 min left. A good lesson for the young team to slam the door shut when you have the chance because a cornered team will fight doubly hard.

Q4.4.56. Steph with a painfully familiar behind the back pass turnover when they need a simple play.

A big big win.

Harrison Barnes answers the postgame questions not like a rookie, but like your candidate for Senate.

Ric Bucher as the sideline reporter. I miss Ros and Kerith.
