Steve Kerr knows the Houston Rockets are a much lesser opponent when Chris Paul can not be on the floor, but the Golden State Warriors coach would rather see the star point guard suit up in the Western Conference Finals.

Paul injured the hamstring in the final seconds of Game 5 Thursday night following a fadeaway shot over Warriors' guard Quinn Cook. The Warriors forced a Game 7 in the West finals with a dominant win Saturday, besting the Rockets 115-86. With the possibility of playing this game without Chris Paul, Harden might need to explode for 40 points or more.

Paul, a 13-year NBA veteran and nine-time All-Star who has never played in the NBA Finals, was a key factor in the game four and game five victories that put the Rockets on the brink of advancing.

About Thompson: He was locked in, emotionally and physically, popping off screens, catching and shooting, creating space to get good looks and punching the air after big 3s. On Monday during game seven, the Astros will be at Yankee Stadium. The Rockets actually led 39-22 after one quarter, but the lead was cut to 10 by halftime.

Stephen Curry had 29 points and Klay Thompson had 35 points.

Some Warriors fans showed up at Oracle Arena this morning saying they are excited about tonight's Game 7 against the Houston Rockets.

If he loses against the Warriors, then Harden will keep the crown as Best Active Player Without A Championship, which isn't an honor he embraces.

A source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that Paul's hamstring injury is a Grade 2. As a team, the Warriors shot 49 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the three-point line but this game was all about the second half where the Warriors outscored the Rockets by 64-25.

Turner Broadcasting System's TNT hold the exclusive rights to broadcast the Warriors vs. Rockets Game 7 showdown nationally.

It was a sense of deja vu for Thompson and the Dubs as it's not the first time he's produced heroics in a Game 6 where they were facing elimination.

Rockets: Houston fell to 6-5 all-time in Game 7s and 4-2 at home.

After looking sloppy and discombobulated in the first half, the Warriors morphed back into one of the most explosive offenses in National Basketball Association history during the third quarter. Here's what you need to know about Warriors and Rockets going into the Western Conference Finals. Head coach Steve Kerr wasn't particularly thrilled to talk about it.

The Warriors are one win away from a fourth straight NBA Finals, while the Rockets seek their first Finals trip since 1995.
