Golden State Warriors Rout Houston Rockets for Force Game 7

Golden State Warriors: Game 6 vs. Houston is the biggest game of Kevin Durant’s career Chris Paul ruled out for Game 6 of WCF, status unknown for Game 7

If the Golden State Warriors are anxious as they head into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals today (9am Brunei time) on the brink of elimination, they aren't showing it.

As it turned out, the key play of the game - in more ways than one - occurred when Paul suffered a strained right hamstring while attempting a missed floater in the key with 51.7 seconds remaining and the Rockets clinging to a 95-94 lead.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson, left, and forward Draymond Green walk through a tunnel after Game 6 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals between the Warriors and the Houston Rockets in Oakland, Calif., Saturday, May 26, 2018. They're champs. They're going to come back fighting, and they did.

Golden State's stars did as they were supposed to with Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry taking turns hitting big shots and filling up the box score.

"I thought Klay was awesome tonight, not just for 35 points and the nine threes, but his defense", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. They need to do Sunday what they did in that first Game 7 - the win starts on the defensive end, making LeBron work for his buckets and not letting the supporting cast get rolling.

You better believe Twitter had a lot to say about the night's action. Paul missed the Rockets' Game 6 loss after suffering a hamstring injury late in their Game 5 win over the Warriors.

Iguodala is listed on the injury report as questionable for Game 6 and Kerr said he didn't have an update on his condition on Friday. "At the same time, we'll rally and do what's right", D'Antoni said.

"I don't want to go home", Thompson said. "You wake up that morning, and it's like, 'This is it.' This is the culmination of everything that's happened the last couple weeks". "I used to be so hard on myself, especially early in my career", Thompson said.

Their Eastern Conference final is also tied at three games apiece. He'll surely dress and go through warmups and then we'll see.

Houston's James Harden had dominated the early stages as they marched to a 39-22 lead after the first period, and he finished with 32 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Afterwards, the Warriors lose the next two games in the series where they could've won as time expired, and then proceed to lose at home despite Houston playing without Chris Paul - marking the first time in the Kerr-era that the Warriors don't reach the NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors will advance to their fourth straight NBA Finals with a victory here. "He's one of the best point guards in the league, but if he doesn't play, we'll figure it out".
