The Warriors were on the brink of elimination, but after coming from behind to win Game 6 of the Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder they have forced a deciding Game 7 on Monday in Oakland.
Facing a 3-1 deficit after Game 5, the Warriors had their backs against the walls and their chances of coming back and winning the series were quite slim. Only nine teams in NBA history have ever come back from a 3-1 hole yet the Warriors didn't let that bother them in the slightest.
Just like the regular season, the Warriors are determined to make NBA history which is why Draymond Green was fired up after their 108-101 victory on Saturday:

"Let's do what they said we can't do," Green yelled as the Warriors ran back to their locker room.
Green is referring to the critics and their accompanying criticism the Warriors dealt with throughout the series. Now, Golden State can shut their critics up on Monday by winning and making a return trip to the NBA Finals.
