Paul's status in doubt for Game 7

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

Meanwhile, the Warriors came out cold on offense.

Teams have to balance winning both now and the future. "Probably if any of those three disagree, he's probably not going". From there, they rolled over the short-handed Rockets.

He'll have his best chance Monday.

Houston will need a more efficient performance from Harden to win Game 7, and ideally another big night from its role players. And that still might not be enough. Remember how Oklahoma City was "destined" to return to The Finals when Harden played there?

A final decision may not be made until Monday afternoon when team doctors are expected to evaluate him.

This is the first season the league has forced a Game 7 in each conference final series since dating way back in 1979, when the Bullets and Spurs went the extent in the east and the Sonics and Suns battle for the west. Houston are 7-2 at home court this playoffs. Kevin Durant scored 23. However, Golden State coach Steve Kerr told reporters Saturday night the team is "operating under the assumption that he will not play". The source said the Rockets did everything they could, "but it's just not humanly possible". It matched Game 7 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals: the Miami Heat and LeBron James vs. the Boston Celtics. And we found ourselves with a Western Conference finals series knotted at three games apiece instead.

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

D'Antoni heard too often about how his offences weren't built to last in the postseason but nobody's saying that now. "Kind of play it by ear right now", D'Antoni added.

But Kerr hasn't always convinced his players to remain calm in fourth quarters. Though he shot only 6-of-19 from the field in Game 5, Paul scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half.

Despite their injury concerns and even against the significant odds of defeating Golden State a fourth time, the Rockets have the Warriors right where they want them. "But that doesn't mean they're not capable. Usually when I do that, it trickles over to other aspects of my game". And with nine 3-pointers, he passed former Lakers point guard Derek Fisher for seventh on the all-time list of 3-pointers made in the National Basketball Association playoffs. But when you have a Warriors' team that dominates the third quarter plus a Houston Rockets that reacts in frustration and loses control to allow a butt-whooping, you get angry and mad. For his sake, hopefully, this was the final time. Sometimes, you need luck. Check out our NBA Public Betting Page for up-to-date information.
