The Golden State Warriors staved off elimination for at least another match after winning game five of their Western Conference finals against Oklahoma City Thunder.

At 3-1 down in the best-of-seven series the record breaking Warriors had to win on home court on Thursday.

After a relatively quiet game four, Steph Curry rediscovered the form that has given nightmares to most opposition.

Curry was only outscored on the night by Kevin Durant who notched up a whopping 40 points as Oklahoma hunt a fifth NBA Finals appearance in franchise history and first championship title since moving from Seattle in 2008.

Curry hit 31 points in front of his raucous home fans while Klay Thomspon chipped in with 27 points as the defending NBA champions saw out a 120-111 victory.

It cut the deficit to 3-2 in favour of Oklahoma, who host the crucial Game six on Saturday night.
