The Latest On Chris Paul’s Status For Game 7

  • Golden State Warriors: Game 6 vs. Houston is the biggest game of Kevin Durant’s career

The energy and the shots saved the Warriors from a lackluster and potentially deadly start.

Thompson finished with a game-high 35 points, and from deep it seemed like he couldn't miss, shooting 9-of-14 from 3-point range.

"Man, that felt good, to be honest", Thompson said.

"I think Klay doesn't worry too much about repercussions. I probably sounded more vocal than I am". Not LeBron - for his career he has averaged 34.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists in Game 7s. Durant was on the wrong side of that performance. It should be a good game, but it'll be great if Houston can pull off a win.

Houston doesn't necessarily need Paul to win a Game 7 at home, but it's pretty tough to imagine them doing it. The Houston lead grew to double digits within minutes and stayed that way through the break.

"We're operating under the assumption that he will not play, but he is literally day-to-day", Kerr said.

Eric Gordon filled in admirably for Paul in the starting lineup in the early stages of the game. "When we win, that's what happens", Rockets guard James Harden said. The Warriors faced elimination in Game 6 Saturday night against the Houston Rockets.

While the Rockets will be down a starter, the Warriors could get one back if Andre Iguodala can return. They're crossing fingers whenever Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell and/or Nick Young are pressed to play more than 15 minutes.

So that's the tale of the tape.

Dr. Chao, a former National Football League doctor, suggests that Chris Paul's injury is not considered serious.


Paul's stellar play was the key reason why the Rockets won Game 4 and 5.

Thompson has come through in big moments before for the Warriors. Obviously, they talked shop.

Then came one of their trademark third-quarter surges.

There are a lot of players who get tight and shrink from Game 7s.

The Western Conference Finals has been a chaotic rollercoaster.

"It's something we talked about building up all year", Houston's P.J. Tucker said. "We wouldn't have it any other way".

Although there isn't any correlation between Rockets and Astros wins and losses during the National Basketball Association playoffs, there have been times when it sure feels like it.

Officiating was not to blame for the Rockets loss in game six.

Curry: "It should be fun".

Thompson's handling of that Finals defeat must not be lost to history: He never griped, he went to the Hamptons to recruit Durant, he sacrificed a portion of his slim share of the limelight, he played committed defense throughout an extended slump in the 2017 playoffs, and he claimed his second title with little individual fanfare. So I think we've been trying to get more and more movement and mix in the KD isos against the mismatches. Sweeping would be vastly preferred.
