Up to Tuesday night last, the National Basketball Association was four-games deep into each Conference finals and, until the fourth game in each contest, the lowest margin of victory was 13 points. Houston struggled to keep pace throughout the game, shooting just 40 per cent from the field and committing 19 turnovers. A hand or two in his face, no matter. "I used to be so hard on myself, especially early in my career", Thompson said. If not, the Warriors will reevaluate Iguodala and Thompson prior to tipoff.

The Houston Rockets will be without star guard Chris Paul for Game 6 because of a strained hamstring, a huge blow for a team trying to close out the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors have plenty of experience performing in pressure-packed Game 7s and thrive in these conditions.

In Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Sunday, Stephen Curry scored 18 of his 35 points in the third quarter in the presence of a raucous home-crowd in the Oracle Arena.

His defense shined, too. But they turned the ball over, with Draymond Green dropping a pass from Steph Curry. Golden State is 4-1 when facing elimination dating to the 2015 championship.

For all the emphasis on Harden's brand of iso ball in the series, Kevin Durant's desire to work one-on-one was among the more pronounced features of the Warriors' offense Thursday night.

The team provided tickets for more than 300 Santa Fe High seniors, along with some staff and first responders. "Usually when I do that, it trickles over to other aspects of my game". But it was closely contested, which made it exciting, as neither team could gain much of an advantage at any point in the second half.

He was 0-of-11 from 3-point range, matching the record set by former New York Knicks shooting guard John Starks in a Game 7 loss to the Rockets in the 1994 NBA Finals.

Back on defensive line, left-back Benjamin Mendy was called up although he featured in few games for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Durant had no interest in recollecting, smiling and laughing with Curry as he said, "next question". "I think Andre embodies that". Iguodala has averaged 7.9 points on 47.9 percent shooting and 4.9 rebounds in 27.5 minutes during the postseason. Golden State is at its best when it feels threatened, but it has a tendency to get complacent.

Two games to win two and advance to the Finals. Trust the next man ahead of us.

However, this is a Houston team explicitly built with beating these Warriors in mind, a Rockets team that won 65 games this season and forced Game 7 in the Western Conference Finals.

♦ Before the Warriors scored 92 points in Game 3 and 94 in Game 4, they had averaged 111.8 points in 13 playoff games. "I think Klay is going to be fine". He doesn't worry about judgment and results. "He's so comfortable in his own skin".

"I thought Klay was fantastic tonight, not just the 35 points and the nine 3s but his defense", Kerr said.

Having him on hand still meant so much. He just competes and plays.

"Both teams are playing their guys heavy minutes so shots will fall or not", James Harden said.
