MEMPHIS (KRON) — The Golden State Warriors dominated Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Memphis Grizzlies, winning 108-95.

This will be the team’s first Western Conference finals since 1976.

The Warriors started the game off strong. At the half, the Dubs led 58 – 49.

Their power played lasted through the second half, where they scored another 50 points.

Curry led the Warriors scoring with 32 points on 11-25 shooting, including 8 of 13 three-pointers. The biggest three-pointer was the 70-foot shot that slipped through the net at the buzzer to end the 3rd quarter.

The Warriors advanced with some of the best shooting in the NBA postseason since 1985, becoming the first team since that year to hit 14 or more 3s in three consecutive playoff games.

The Warriors will play the winner of the Los Angeles Clippers-Houston Rockets series in the conference finals. The conference finals will start Tuesday night at Golden State.
