Warriors' outburst sinks Rockets, forces game seven

Trevor Ariza,James Harden,Stephen Curry

But the charismatic guard is "less likely than likely" to be fit for Game Seven of the NBA Western Conference finals between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors.

"There's no pressure", said Harden, who had 32 points and nine assists but committed nine turnovers in Game 6.

If Golden State wins this series, Game 6 will be remembered as the Klay Thompson game. The Warriors did not win this game because they wanted it more than the Rockets and I think this incredible series has made clear that there is no gap in desire between these two teams.

The Warriors did see the return of guard Patrick McCaw on Saturday night. Watch above as Travis calls them "heroes" and "the strongest people on this earth" before getting super excited about the upcoming game.

D'Antoni said prior to Game 6 that Paul is receiving treatment "around the clock". And roaring Oracle Arena went insane with hopes of even more home games to come if Golden State can get to a fourth straight finals. "When you've been through things together, adversity, you have a deeper level of confidence", Kerr said. According to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr voiced his sympathy toward Paul who's dealing with an untimely and familiar injury.

Paul played a major role in the Rockets' last two victories, averaging 23.5 points in those two wins, but strained his hamstring in the final minute of Game 5. A Rockets team that couldn't miss in the first half struggled to make 3s in the second (4-of-17). Curry posted nine of his 29 points, including draining 3-of-4 from 3-point range. "I was just rushing it a little bit, not being decisive with my shots".

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shoots against the Houston Rockets during the first half of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals in Oakland on Saturday.

Such is life at the epicenter of the NBA's monolith: The Warriors have bigger stars, bigger personalities, bigger storylines.

The club termed Iguodala as questionable for Game 6 after it lost for the second consecutive game Thursday with Iguodala sidelined due to a leg contusion. They set goals and their sights on the Warriors.

After leaning on that run to cover up first-half sluggishness throughout the 2017-18 regular season, the Warriors used the same tactic to salvage their championship aspirations. Curry was motivated by those words and added afterward that, "We haven't had this chapter in our story yet".

Kerr said he is gutted to see Paul and others, like his own player Andre Iguodala, having to sit out games as big as those being played in the playoffs.
