Klay Thompson three proves to be game winner (VIDEO)

Mar 17, 2014, 1:00 AM EST

Golden State and Portland are in the packed middle of the Western Conference playoff race, coming into the game the Warriors were the six seed, 2.5 games back of the Trail Blazers. Both teams needed a win and this game had a real playoff feel, with the Trail Blazers leading by 18 and the Warriors fought back.

And it came down to the final plays.

Klay Thompson drained that good look three after Stephen Curry‘s drive and some good ball movement. It left time for Nicolas Batum to get fouled with a shot to tie the game, but a missed free throw ended up making the Thompson three the game winner, 113-112 Golden State.

The win leaves Golden State just 1.5 back and with a shot to jump into the five seed (catching four seed Houston, the three seed, would take some serious help).

    Klay was ridiculous late in that game. His shot is so mechanical, he looks like a machine when he shoots. You can tell he puts up a ton of shots in practice.

    Gotta love Jim Barnett and Bob Fitzgerald. Warrior fans know what I’m talking about.

      I’m a Lakers fan and I know what you’re talking about. Those two are one of the reasons the Warriors are my second most watched team.

    My quick (and shallow) look around the NBA, or what you missed while moping in front of your TV because True Detective is over.

    Dwyane Wade: F’n A+ – This dude looks healthy, wealthy and wise. He dove for a loose ball that would make Ozzie Smith proud.

    Blake Griffin: D for DAMN! – His windmills are only rivaled by those of Charles F. Brush. Happy Birthday Mr. Griffin, 25 and for some reason, takes a lot of jive.
