With their season on the line, the Golden State Warriors showed their championship pedigree.

Trailing by six points with 3:28 remaining in Game 5, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson scored six unanswered points - all from the 3-point line - to give the Warriors the lead. A layup from Kyle Lowry a few seconds later made it a one-point game with less than a minute to go, but the five-time All-Star was unable to knock down a 3-pointer in the closing seconds to get the win.

After the buzzer sounded, a number of NBA players took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Golden State extending the Finals with a gritty win.
