The Golden State Warriors are currently two wins away from advancing to the Western Conference finals, but they will need to win those two games consecutively while being on the brink of elimination with the Los Angeles Lakers, sporting a 3-2 lead in their second-round playoff series.
In Game 5, the Warriors were able to hold the Lakers at bay by getting the best of LeBron James and company in San Francisco to extend the series to Game 6 back in Los Angeles.
Lakers legend Robert Horry recently made an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show to talk about this second-round playoff series.
Horry admitted that Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are the No. 1 and No. 2 best shooters of all time, but he’s No. 3, and he would take the last shot if he were on their team, and it came down to that scenario.
Robert Horry (@RKHorry) thinks Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all-time, and Klay Thompson is no. 2. He said he's not passing to either of them with the game on the line though. "I believe in myself, if I'm double teamed I might."

As one of the most clutch shooters in the history of the NBA, it is no surprise that Horry, who has seven championship rings to his credit, would take the shot rather than pass to the two best shooters ever to play this game.
On Friday night, the series will be on the line again for the Warriors in Los Angeles, with LeBron James and company looking to close things out on their home floor at Crypto.com Arena.
Although the Lakers will likely be favored for this Game 6 showdown in the City of Angels, the Warriors will be tough to beat as they try to keep their hopes of a repeat alive while on the road.NEXT: Warriors GM Addresses His Offseason Contract Speculation
