Rockets Announce Chris Paul Is Out For Game 7

Rockets Announce Chris Paul Is Out For Game 7

Houston could be without All-Star point guard Chris Paul, who injured his hamstring in a Game 6 loss to the Warriors in Oakland.

"He's one of the best players in the league".

"He can get the same type of treatment", D'Antoni said. Will Golden State continue to overwhelm Houston or will it be the host Rockets that advances to the NBA Finals? Based on how the last two games had gone - with Houston coming out on the winning end of two close games - it would have been fair to think that this might be it for the Warriors.

Klay Thompson led the way with 35 points on absurd 9-of-14 shooting from deep, a performance reminiscent of his 2016 Game 6 against the Oklahoma City Thunder. 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 Rockets led by 10 at the second half of the series.

The Golden State Warriors have spent eight months in a perpetual state of denial. In 1962, the Lakers, led by Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, scored 51 points in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of their Western Division Final against the Detroit Pistons. It didn't work. When Thompson and Curry took over in the second half, the game completely changed.

Durant: We're looking forward to going down there, and locking in and being who we are. This will surely a great and entertaining game and has the potential to wrap up going down as the best of the entire postseason. Victor advances to the NBA Finals. They've won two out of the last three National Basketball Association championships so this kind of stage isn't something they aren't familiar with. Houston are 7-2 at home court this playoffs. Golden State won by a final score of 115-86, allowing just nine points in the fourth quarter.

DHS Sec 'Not Aware' Of Intel Community Conclusion That Putin Favored Trump
And all major intelligence community leaders - including those appointed by Trump - have endorsed the finding. And when pressed about the conclusion regarding Trump, Nielsen sidestepped.


Golden State will be without valuable sixth-man Andre Iguodala, but the Rockets have the more pressing injury concern.

It all comes down to Game 7. Their availability remains to be determined. In terms of ratings, Game 6 gained 6% over Game 5 and put the series overall 21% ahead of the 2017 edition, which saw the Cavs beat the Celtics, four games to one.

Our ESPN Forecast panel predicts the conference finals and NBA Finals.

The Warriors tend to destroy teams in the third quarter.
