With Mike D'Antoni unwilling to go deep into his bench, Houston didn't have the energy to keep up its first-quarter pace for a full 48. "Not all is lost".
Klay Thompson hit nine 3-pointers and scored 35 points, the Warriors held James Harden down in the second half, and Golden State rallied from an early 17-point deficit to stave off elimination with a 115-86 victory over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night to force a deciding Game 7 in the Western Conference finals. Afterwards, the Warriors lose the next two games in the series where they could've won as time expired, and then proceed to lose at home despite Houston playing without Chris Paul - marking the first time in the Kerr-era that the Warriors don't reach the NBA Finals.
"It would be a tough spot to put him in, in the meat of the game, with not having played for a long time".
"I don't have a doubt", D'Antoni said. "They see the challenge ... whether CP's there or not, it's a heck of a challenge, and they're up to it". For Harden especially, Saturday's game had to be a stark reminder of how hard his life was without Chris Paul.
It's official: Both conference finals series are heading to a Game 7. "There is pressure on everybody". Throw in some bad 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. The last time the Rockets didn't make the playoffs was in 2012. "We just collectively find a way to win". He's listed as questionable. 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.
The Warriors are 6-1 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. "So, we'll see what happens".
What is it going to take to get Golden State to truly focus and play up to their potential?
"We don't want to come and be pouting around", he said. Everybody will talk about how good a defense we played, but we really don't feel like that. "It's just not a question of trying to outsmart".
When Paul strolled into practice Friday morning after the game and after the night talking with Harden, he was smiling and laughing.
