9-4 Cats hold off 6-9 Warriors

The Game opened with a 8-0 run by the Bobcats. The Warriors then went on a 12-7 run to pull within three at 12-15. The Bobcats finished the quarter on a 5-4 run to go into the second quarter with a lead of 20-16 after Lee committed his second foul.
The Bobcats were up 26-18 with 5:25 left in the quarter when Kemba picked up his third foul. The Bobcats were up 31-22 with 3:44 left in the quarter when Steph Curry picked up his third foul. Somehow without Curry in the game the Warriors went on a 10-6 run to pull within 5 by halftime as the Bobcats went into the half with a 37-32 lead.
The Bobcats were up 42-38 with 5:14 left in the third quarter when Kemba picked up his fourth foul. The Bobcats hit a three and then the Warriors went on a 17-5 run to go up 55-50 with 1:39 left in the quarter. The Bobcats then hit a shot and free throw to pull within 53-55 going into the fourth.
In the fourth quarter the Warriors were up 57-56 with 6:07 left when Klay Thompson went down with a lower back strain. Klay will be out 1-2 weeks. The Bobcats hit their next shot to go up 58-57. Despite Kemba picking up his 5th foul with 4:44 left the Bobcats were able to keep just ahead of the Warriors for the rest of the game winning 70-68 after Chandler blocked a game winning three.

Odd Stat - Ellis missed all 5 his threes, any one of those three would have given the Warriors the win.
