    DALLAS (AP) — New Orleans Pelicans guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was fatally shot after breaking down the door to a Dallas apartment, authorities said Saturday. A man living at the apartment was sleeping when he heard his front door kicked open, Dallas Police Senior Cpl. DeMarquis Black said in a statement. When Dejean-Jones began kicking at the bedroom door, the man retrieved a handgun and fired. Officers who responded found Dejean-Jones collapsed in an outdoor passageway, and he died at a hospital.

    Forget the Thunder's disappointing 55-win record this season or Golden State's record-setting 73-win march to history. Forget the first round breeze by Dallas, the second round shock of San Antonio, the first five games of this series and the first 45 minutes on Saturday night. Go back to October or mid-March or two weeks ago and lay out this scenario for Sam Presti or Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook: You're up three at home with possession of the ball and under three minutes to play. Close it out and you're in the NBA Finals. None of what came before it matters. Not the midseason struggles, the KD free agency chatter or the historic dominance of their two conference rivals. KD and Russ will jump

    Golden State's Klay Thompson's right arm lingered in the air, having just flung up yet another 3-pointer. This one went over Thunder star Kevin Durant and, like 10 others in Game Six of the Western Conference finals, fell through the basket. Thompson's final shot of his record-breaking night stunned the crowd of 18,203 at Chesapeake Energy Arena, waiting to celebrate the franchise's second trip to the NBA Finals. Instead, after Golden State's 108-101 win, the series returns to Oakland for a decisive Game Seven on Monday (8 p.m., TNT). Warriors coach Steve Kerr called Thompson's 41-point, 11 3-point performance “ridiculous.” The Thunder just left the court shaking their heads, lamenting an opportunity

    Stephen Curry navigated right, bursting past Serge Ibaka's 6-foot-10 frame but knowing an array of long limbs stalked from behind. So Curry got to about eight feet out, planted with his left and faded right, falling back toward the Warriors bench as his soft floater fell through, kissing softly off the glass and dropping like a hammer on the heart of Oklahoma City. It was the dagger, much like his memorable 37-foot rainbow game-winner back in February, but this one, while not as mesmerizing to watch, carried far more significance. The floater put the Warriors up five with 14 seconds left, all but sealing the Thunder's Game 6 fate. The final: Warriors 108, Thunder 101.

    Chesapeake Arena was ready to explode all night. Heck, not just the arena. The whole danged city. The entire state. Oklahomans were on edge before the game, awaiting a game that could put the Thunder in the NBA Finals, then were on the edge, ready to erupt, as the Thunder led the mighty Warriors most of Game 6 Saturday night. But Golden State kept it close. Klay Thompson kept making 3-pointers, or Andre Roberson — Andre Roberson! — would pick up a foul that threatened to ruin the Thunder's chances, or Kevin Durant would miss a shot you'd have bet your paycheck he would make. Trepidation settled in. Then it morphed into horror. The Thunder led by seven points with five minutes left but started struggling, and
