The Western Conference Finals has been a chaotic rollercoaster.
Golden State's quest for a repeat championship remains intact. The Rockets' 50-point third quarter Game 4 of their first-round series with the Minnesota Timberwolves bested the 1987 Lakers. The Rockets just need one.
Iguodala now has missed three consecutive games with a left lateral leg contusion.
Most importantly, Bell helped guard Houston Rockets' superstar James Harden.
Rockets: The Rockets made 8 of 12 3-pointers in the first and topped the Warriors 19-4 in fast-break points.
Part of Thompson's allure as an National Basketball Association player is his ability to go from zero to nuclear in 2.5 possessions. Of course not; Curry deserves a great deal of blame, as do Thompson and Green. You could even say that head coach Steve Kerr has a lot on the line in Game 6.More news: Tesla refutes reports it rejected extra autopilot safety features over costs
A final decision may not be made until Monday afternoon when team doctors are expected to evaluate him. "But at this point it's all hands on deck obviously, and you never know how the game is going to play out".
Houston's big win in Game 5 was tempered by a hamstring injury to star Chris Paul which will keep him out of Saturday's game. In the second half, everything changed, and it didn't take long to realize that a Game 7 was inevitable. The outcome will come down to the health of Chris Paul and Andre Iguodala and which team is able to execute their game plan, make the tiny adjustments, catch a little luck and make their shots.
Durant and Klay Thompson lead Golden State with 14 points apiece.
Steve Kerr can say the Warriors aren't anxious down 3-2, and perhaps they're not. Assuming CP3 plays, I like the Rockets to win this game outright. However, Houston is moving forward with the mindset that getting Paul back would be a major bonus. He dominates in isolation, can pull-up from beyond the arc, finish at the rim, and has become an elite defender over the last few years. Thompson finished with 35 points in 39 minutes, while Curry posted 29 points, six assists and five rebounds. The Rockets looked really good for about two and a half quarters on Saturday night before falling apart.
Both teams let it fly from every corner of the court - Golden State hitting 16 three-pointers and Houston 15.
That would be quite staining, no?
13 of the Houston Rockets goes up for a shot against Kevin Durant No. 35 of the Golden State Warriors during Game Six of the Western Conference Finals in the 2018 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on Sunday in Oakland, California.
