The Houston Rockets announced Friday that point guard Chris Paul will miss Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on Saturday with a strained right hamstring. He splashed in seven of his triples in the second half to help his team outscore the Houston Rockets 64-25 in the final two quarters.
With the Rockets now leading 3-2 in the best-of-7 Western Conference Finals, Houston is only one win away from its first trip to the NBA Finals since Bill Clinton's first term as President.
The Warriors saved their season in dramatic fashion in Game 6 against the Rockets, falling behind by 17 points in the 1st quarter, and then winning by 29 points.
Houston will need a more efficient performance from Harden to win Game 7, and ideally another big night from its role players.
Now, is Durant the sole reason why the Warriors find themselves down 3-2?
"All our doctors are with us", D'Antoni said, explaining why Paul traveled for Game 6 after he had been ruled out.
"It will not change anything that we do or how we do it", D'Antoni said. He was questionable for Game 5, but ultimately played. "I used to be so hard on myself, especially early in my career", Thompson said.
Since coming to Houston, the Rockets have made the playoffs 31 times.
While Houston was jubilant in the wake of a 98-94 victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of this best-of-seven series, the celebrations inside Houston's locker room were muted after Paul suffered a right hamstring injury in the game's final minute. "I mean, under the circumstances, because I just feel like we're ready to break through".
Paul did not even address the media post game because he was busy receiving treatment.
But according to Draymond Green, it's more important that Thompson's defense - yeah, he was great at that too on Saturday, grabbing four steals and doing a rock-solid job against James Harden - maintains in Game 7.
Steve Kerr can say the Warriors aren't anxious down 3-2, and perhaps they're not. So, the pressure doesn't seem to bother him much.
"Effort, intensity, passion, those three things and playing smart", he said of what it will take to beat the Rockets on their home floor. "As I said, the two-way ability of this guy hounding the MVP of the league, most likely, all game, and continuing to rain down 3-pointers, he's awesome".
Green told ESPN's "Get Up" morning show that he's been in communication with Leonard and that the former NBA Finals MVP wants to be a Spur despite the season-long drama surrounding him.
"We've got plenty of guys over there that will have some fresh legs, that's for sure", the coach said.
But he did address what it would mean to Golden State if he's healthy enough to go on Saturday. "He's a great player", Kerr said. "We haven't been in this position before.so it's a chapter we need to figure out and finish the story", Stephen Curry said.
