  • Iguodala Day-to-Day Paul Game Time Decision for Game 7 Ian Smith

The Golden State Warriors, facing a rare elimination game, rallied after a sluggish first half to bury the Rockets 115-86 and send the Western Conference Finals to a decisive game seven on Monday. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee tweeted on Monday afternoon that Paul will be on the floor against the Golden State Warriors after missing Game 6 with a hamstring injury. With the possibility of playing this game without Chris Paul, Harden might need to explode for 40 points or more. "Game seven at our house". Throw in some awful defensive communication errors by the Warriors, and the Rockets were raining threes in the first half - 11-of-22, with Gordon going 4-of-4.

On Saturday, the Warriors looked more like the team that swept through the West past year than the one that has struggled offensively against the Rockets. Superstar Stephen Curry chipped in a total of in 29 points for the Game 6.

But coach Mike D'Antoni said he had "no idea" whether star point guard Chris Paul would be able to play after suffering a hamstring strain in game five.

Whether Paul plays or not, the Warriors have likely dodged their toughest competition at the very last moment en route to defend their crown. It will be a summer of what-could-have-been for the Rockets, who couldn't finish off the Warriors without Paul after putting them on the ropes. They opened with an 11-0 run to spark a dominant second half that made National Basketball Association history. "But he's probably excited for the game and wants to get the win". In 1962, the Lakers, led by Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, scored 51 points in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of their Western Division Final against the Detroit Pistons. Houston is 5-1 ATS in its last six games following a loss of 10 or more points. That win equalized the series up at 3-3, forcing a decision-time Game 7 to dictate which of these powerhouse teams will move on to the 2018 NBA Finals to battle on the Cleveland Cavaliers tot claim the championship title. The Rockets turned the ball over 21 times as a team, allowing the Warriors to come back and then eventually run away with the game.

The Rockets will need to try and figure out a way to survive without Paul. Head coach Steve Kerr wasn't particularly thrilled to talk about it. Let's take a look at what the Warriors can carry over from Game 6 to keep it meaningful. It's a bummer that he won't get to play in the biggest game of his career, with a spot in the NBA Finals on the line, but that's the unfortunate situation.
