The Golden State Warriors extended the series at least one more game, but the Los Angeles Lakers may have lost more than just Game 5. Anthony Davis left the game late in the fourth quarter with an apparent head injury after Kevon Looney inadvertently hit him. His status for Game 6 is unclear.

Stephen Curry scored 27 points, while Andrew Wiggins added 25 and Draymond Green had 20 in the Warriors' 121-106 win. For the Lakers, LeBron James scored 25 points. Game 6 is Friday in Los Angeles.
