    Draymond Green capped a 14-point, 14-rebound effort by sinking two free throws with 1:19 to go as the Golden State Warriors beat Los Angeles Clippers 100-99 to tie up their Western Conference first-round series at 3-3.

    The Warriors reached their first deciding Game Seven in 37 years by leading throughout the fourth quarter, but never by more than eight points.

    Elsewhere, the Indiana Pacers found some life and fought off the Atlanta Hawks 95-88 at Philips Arena to win Game 6 and keep their Eastern Conference playoffs matchup alive.

    Indiana forward David West scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, and Paul George added 24 points and came up with a big steal in the game's final minute to force Game 7.

    Kevin Durant matched his series high with 36 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder staved off playoff elimination with a 104-84 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies at FedExForum.

    The Thunder, the number-two seed in the Western Conference, evened the first-round series at three games apiece.
