Warriors vs. Grizzlies score, takeaways: Klay Thompson erupts for 30 points, leads Golden State to Game 6 win

The Golden State Warriors are headed to the Western Conference finals after closing out the Memphis Grizzlies 110-96 in Game 6 on Friday night.

It was a closely contested game for the majority of the night, 

with the Grizzlies showing tremendous fight without star guard Ja Morant in the lineup.

But in the end, experience won out, as the Warriors went on a scoring spree in the final five minutes to end Memphis' 

season and get back to the conference finals for the first time since 2019.

The Warriors were led by Klay Thompson who poured in 30 points, 

while Stephen Curry got going late and finished the night with 29 points. 

On the other end, Dillon Brooks did everything he could to try and force a Game 7, dropping 30 points,

while Desmond Bane added 25 points of his own. With the win, the Warriors will face the winner of the series between the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, 

which will be decided in a Game 7 on Sunday night. Once the matchup is set, the Western Conference finals will start on May 18.
