By Matt Moore (CBS Sports) The Golden State Warriors advanced to their second straight NBA Finals Monday night with a 96-88 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.  The Thunder led the entire first half and dominated in most areas of the game, but in the end, all that really mattered was Stephen Curry.  Curry was back to his usual phenomenal self, hitting ridiculous contested 3-pointers. He kept hitting, and eventually the Thunder’s composure broke under the strain.  Curry finished with 36 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the 3-point arc, matching…

Pittsburgh advances to Stanley Cup Final
