Thompson hot hand carries Warriors into Game 7 with Rockets

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson celebrates during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets in Oakland Calif. Saturday

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will not play in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals.

An bad start was followed by three quarters of utter dominance, spot-on shot-making and lovely defense - even against one of the game's greatest and hardest to stop in Houston's James Harden.

The Rockets played well in the first half of Game 6 versus the Warriors. They came back to win the series, which ultimately led to Kevin Durant signing with Golden State in the offseason, ushering in a new era of Warriors dominance.

Las Vegas sportsbooks have the Warriors as a 5 to 5.5-point favorite vs the Rockets in Game 7. He has single-handedly outscored Golden State's reserves 38-16 in the last two games, both of which Houston has won to reverse what had been a 2-1 deficit in the series. And we found ourselves with a Western Conference finals series knotted at three games apiece instead.

The teams will face off for game seven Monday night at 8 p.m. He shot 1-of-4 from three, 10-of-14 from the free throw line and 6-of-17 overall.

"We have an opportunity to re-establish ourselves at home, get a big win, keep ourselves alive, and then roll the dice into Game 7", Curry said.

"I think it's a game-time decision".

Kevin Durant is arguably the best pure scorer in the game, but his ability to be such a threat late in games has come into question lately. "We've got to win two basketball games and we've done that an terrible lot, so we're very confident". "That's a pretty good position to be in", coach Steve Kerr said.

Their Eastern Conference final is also tied at three games apiece. We're going to do what we've got to do to win this game.

The Warriors bounced back with a solid second quarter before unloading a second-half onslaught that sucked the life out of the Rockets in a 115-86 win to force a Game 7 on Monday in Houston with an NBA Finals berth at stake.

That's what happened in Game 6.

Paul, a 13-year NBA veteran and nine-time All-Star who has never played in the NBA Finals, was a key factor in the game four and game five victories that put the Rockets on the brink of advancing. "We've just got one chance". Now they go back to Houston where the role players are more consistent and the whistle tends to favor the otherside.

They might be able to do it all the way to a fourth consecutive NBA Finals.

For Houston, point guard James Harden led their scoring with 32 points, as well as nine assists and seven rebounds.

Boston gets their points by committee, they get the ball to the open man and he has to knock the shot down, whether it's Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown or Terry Rozier or Al Horford or anyone else.
