Klay Thompson's 35 Points Helps The Warriors Force A G7!

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

Golden State will need to win away from home if it wants to keep its National Basketball Association title defence alive after it overcame a 17-point deficit to beat Houston in game six of the NBA's Western Conference finals series.

Playing without injured point guard Chris Paul, the Rockets shocked the defending champs with an early burst of four consecutive three-pointers to help produce a 39-22 lead after one quarter. 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.

Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors bank on blistering second-half run to turn the game around.

"I guess you could say I was born for it. Man, that felt good", Thompson said. And we found ourselves with a Western Conference finals series knotted at three games apiece instead.

And it seems the sports betting world is pretty convinced Paul won't play in Monday night's Game 7 (or won't be almost as effective if he does).

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

Four games after Bell returned from that injury, he went on to suffer a sprained right ankle.

Though his stoic, quietly confident demeanor is his trademark, the fire comes out of Klay occasionally - like it did on Saturday, or last summer in China - and the Warriors know that when it reveals itself, it's a good sign. "What do we gotta do to win Game 7? So here he is, and he'll suit up", Kerr said of McCaw.

Game 7 is going to be one of the all-time greats, as a number of players will put their legacies on the line with the hopes that it'll culminate in a trip to the NBA Finals. "We're not going to be coy with it", D'Antoni said. Surely enough, Houston has taken a 3-2 series lead, and the Warriors haven't swept a postseason series. They were committing careless turnovers.

Paul missed Game 6 while recovering from a hamstring strain.

While the Warriors swept their way through the Western Conference, and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals in five games last season, Golden State was never faced with a true challenge.

Thompson's second-half outburst - reminiscent of his landscape-changing Game 6 showing against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the West finals two years ago - lifted the Warriors to a 115-86 victory Saturday, giving the league two Game 7s this holiday weekend. That's just the angle we've taken.
