How the Warriors Survived Game 5 of the N.B.A. Finals

A 9-0 run has Golden State back up, 106-103 with 56 seconds remaining.

Klay Thompson hit two 3-pointers and Stephen Curry hit one, and the Warriors managed to laugh off a very questionable call in which DeMarcus Cousins was called for offensive interference on a putback that did not appear on replays to be above the cylinder when he dunked it back in.

In the Warriors run, Kawhi Leonard missed a pair of shots and Kyle Lowry missed once, opening the door for Golden State to somehow survive what had been a truly epic explosion from Leonard.
