Video: Jordan Bell’s sick put-back slam off Stephen Curry miss

With less than five minutes left in the fourth and final quarter, the Warriors had already amassed a 20-point lead over the Rockets and the game was already settled. The rowdy crowd at the Oracle Arena were already going crazy and the monstrous jam from the 23-year-old rookie gave them yet another thing to roar about.
In typical Warriors fashion, they separated themselves from the Rockets in the third after outscoring them 33-16. They turned it into a blowout after allowing only nine points from their opponents in the final frame and scoring another 33 points to end the game with a final score of 115-86.
The lopsided scoreline does not fairly reflect the overall flow of the game as the Rockets actually had a 17-point lead against the Warriors in the first quarter.
Game 7 of this thrilling series will be on Monday in Houston and surely both teams will be leaving everything on the floor as they look to secure a place in the NBA Finals.
