Former Houston Rockets' star Mario Elie kicks off Game 7

Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry will lead his team against the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference Finals

The MVP frontrunner promptly got skewered on social media for the perceived lack of sportsmanship.

D'Antoni said Paul's recovery is "going good" but acknowledged that the nine-time All-Star has not attempted to test the hamstring by running or working out since he was injured. However, the loss of backcourt running mate Chris Paul in Game 5 ultimately proved too much for Houston to overcome.

The Rockets played themselves out of the playoffs and they did it by lazily launching 3-pointers instead of attacking the paint. It's a bummer that he won't get to play in the biggest game of his career, with a spot in the NBA Finals on the line, but that's the unfortunate situation.

But the big story in, and the big problem for, Houston will be the injury to superstar guard Chris Paul, who missed Game 6 - when the Rockets had an opportunity to wrap up the series - with a hamstring injury. Paul has averaged 21 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game.

"This is a situation we've never been in before.to win a Game 7 on the road, keep our composure for the whole series", Curry said after the game. "And you have to have those momentum changers and stoppers, and the last two games, we didn't have them".

It was the largest halftime deficit overcome by a road team in a Game 7 in National Basketball Association history. The Rockets had a ten point lead going into halftime. Overall, the 2018 NBA Playoffs on ESPN - 19 games - averaged a 3.8 metered market rating, up 31 percent from past year.

Neither heart nor Harden nor game contributions from Clint Capela (20 points and nine rebounds), Eric Gordon (23 points) and P.J. Tucker (14 points and 12 rebounds) were quite enough for a team that, in the very frank words of its general manager Daryl Morey, have always been "obsessed" with toppling the Warriors.

The Warriors were clearly tight in the first half. But again, I know the fans of Houston, especially myself, to have him on your side is incredible.

"I can't wait 'til Tuesday", Durant said. This leaves the superstar benched and Houston without one of its most important players. Houston kept firing threes despite missing consistently.
