She may be a Kiwi but Lydia Ko is supporting the Golden State Warriors in today's big NBA showdown against Steve Adams and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Ko met Warriors superstar Steph Curry earlier this year and he clearly won over the world women's No. 1 golfer.

The US-based ace tweeted her support for Curry and his Warriors team-mates after they squared the Western Conference finals against the Thunder, winning the sixth game to send the series to a decider in San Francisco at 1pm New Zealand time.



Adams obviously has the backing his sister and Ko's New Zealand Olympic teammate, Valerie.

The two-time gold medallist tweeted her support earlier today.


Ko may well be the only New Zealander cheering for a Warriors win but the NBA seems to be in her camp too.

The organisation made an embarrassing blunder yesterday when its official Facebook page listed upcoming events and included Games 1 and 2 of the Finals Series, scheduled for this Thursday and Sunday in the United States.

The Facebook post, now deleted, had the first two games of the finals being played between the Warriors and LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Adams and his team-mates may have something to say about that.
