The Golden State Warriors look to recover from a 3-1 deficit, when they play Game Seven against the Oklahoma City Thunder, a game that will stream live on Monday night — and a game that if the Warriors can win it, will not only send the defending champs back to the NBA Finals for a rematch with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but will also make history with Golden State becoming just the 10th team in NBA history to win a seven-game series after falling behind 3-1.
After dropping the series opener at home and then, after winning Game 2, Golden State then seemed to put up little fight on the road in Oklahoma, losing both games there by 28 and 24 points, respectively.

But Golden State returned home for a convincing 120-11 win at Oracle Arena before facing the prospect of a must-win road game back at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
“This is a huge win for us considering that we had two elimination games and had to take advantage of them,” said Warriors star and NBA MYV Stephen Curry, after the Warriors escaped with a fourth-quarter comeback victory. “It doesn’t win us a ring or anything, but it ranks up there because it keeps us alive.”
The Warriors pulled out a three-point win on Saturday to send the series back to Oakland for the first Game 7 they have played in either this year’s playoff run or their run in 2014-2015 which ended with Golden State lifting the NBA Championship trophy after defeating Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games.
If the Warriors defeat the Thunder on Monday, they will face a return matchup with Cleveland and with James who will be playing in his sixth consecutive NBA Finals series.

If the Thunder manage to beat Golden State on Monday, they will qualify for their second NBA Finals since moving to Oklahoma City from Seattle in 2008. The Thunder lost to the Miami Heat in 2012, when Lebron James played for Miami.
