The Golden State Warriors took care of business on their home floor, beating the Los Angeles Lakers, 121-106, to force Game 6 on their Western Conference Semifinals saga.

Stephen Curry ignited the Dubs with his 27 points and eight assists to propel the defending champs’ survival. Andrew Wiggins found his magic touch and went off with 25 points and seven boards, while Draymond Green stepped up for a massive performance, scoring 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 10 boards, four assists and two steals.

The Warriors collectively shot a consistent 51.1 percent from the field against the Lakers and connected 13 of their 35 treys. They also amassed 10 more boards against L.A.’s 38 overall rebounds.

LeBron James had 25 points and nine boards on a losing effort, but he appeared hobbling due to a tweak in his left ankle late in the third period. Anthony Davis got 23 points and nine boards, and is currently facing a major health issue after being hitted by Kevon Looney in his face midway through the final frame and went on to take a premature leave.

The series will go back to Los Angeles for Game 6 on Friday with the Lakers looking to close it out, with Warriors remain determined to overcome the series edge and enter the West Finals on the other hand.
