The defending NBA champions have come back from 3-1 down before, but their dynasty has shown ominous signs of wilting after they lost Games 3 and 4.

However, they refused to die in Game 5. Curry was decent in game 5, scoring 27 points, but it was Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins who stepped up.

Green finished with 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting, 10 rebounds, and two steals. This was his second 20-point game this postseason, per ESPN.

Wiggins had 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting, seven rebounds, and five assists. Klay Thompson struggled all game, finishing with only 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting from the floor and 2-of-6 from three.

Curry on what Warriors Game 6 plans

Speaking after the game, the 35-year-old said they must keep the momentum and not throw it away like they did in Game 4.

"It's just the mentality of taking hold of momentum and not giving them any life," Curry said. "So if we can get out to a good start and then take care of those margin plays, a couple of turnovers, offensive rebounds, whatever it is, I think we'll be in great shape and give ourselves a chance to come out with a win on the road," via NBC Sports.

The Warriors were 3-1 down in the 2016 Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder but came back to win. Their joy was, however, shortlived as they squandered a 3-1 series lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the next round.

James responds to Kerr

Sports Brief earlier reported on LeBron James responding to Warriors coach Steve Kerr who accused them of flopping.

Kerr said the Lakers got favorable calls because of their flopping after his team lost Game 4 to go 3-1 down.

"I just know that we and our coaching staff and us players we don't work on flopping."
