Warriors’ Game 6 Revival Keeps Series Alive Against the Rockets

Stephen Curry won't hesitate to say the nerves are most definitely there for a crucial Game 7, playing not only to prove his Golden State Warriors deserved to be crowned the best in the Western Conference, but securing another NBA Finals appearance against their perennial rivals, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Chris Paul is officially questionable for the Rockets' Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors on Monday, but Houston coach Mike D'Antoni expressed doubt about Paul's availability as the guard recovers from a right hamstring injury. The Rockets led by 10 at the second half of the series.

Tucker's 3 was the first of seven straight points for Houston which cut the lead to 89-83. Paul is doubtful to play tonight, but the Rockets have not ruled out the possibility as he will be a game-time decision. 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.

Thompson's latest piece of work helped awaken the Warriors from being trapped in an extended state of stun, courtesy of how fierce the Rockets came at them right from the start. The Warriors are one of the best third quarter teams in the National Basketball Association and they came out from a 10-point halftime deficit and turned it into a 7-point advantage. The Rockets were without Chris Paul who missed the game after injuring his hamstring in the fourth quarter of game six. The Rockets and the Warriors are set to play for a spot in the NBA Finals on Monday night. 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.

The Warriors rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit en route to a 101-92 win in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Missing Game 7 against the Warriors is the worst scenario in the world to him.

By outscoring the Rockets, 64-25, the Warriors' 39-point difference became the highest in the second half of a playoff game in the shot clock era (since the 1954-55 season).

European investments in Iran, mainly from Germany, France, and Italy, have jumped by more than 20 billion euros since 2016. As the European Commission we have the duty to protect European companies.

In the first half of Game 6, the Rockets were slicing the Warriors' defense up with their transition opportunities. The Rockets are still in position to pull off the upset and advance to the NBA Finals given that this game is in Houston, but the loss of Paul just can't be underestimated.

It was a sense of deja vu for Thompson and the Dubs as it's not the first time he's produced heroics in a Game 6 where they were facing elimination. If he comes up flat and the Warriors lose, the sensitive Durant might want to stay off social media.
