Klay Thompson's 35 Points Helps The Warriors Force A G7!

Klay Thompson's 35 Points Helps The Warriors Force A G7!

The Warriors are one of the best third quarter teams in the National Basketball Association and they came out from a 10-point halftime deficit and turned it into a 7-point advantage.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets will be kicking themselves after getting blown out by the Warriors after jumping out to that early 17-point lead.

Houston's big win in Game 5 was tempered by a hamstring injury to star Chris Paul which will keep him out of Saturday's game.

Warriors: Golden State's 33-point third quarter was its first 30-point period since the third in Game 4.

Warriors guard/forward Andre Iguodala has missed the last three games due to a left lateral leg contusion, and his availbility for Game 7 is not known at this time.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) battles for the ball with Houston Rockets forward Trevor Ariza (1) in game six of the Western conference finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Oracle Arena. However Kerr said Looney is fine and will play in Game 7.

In every game in this series, the team with the fewest turnovers has won.

"I have to focus and try to do the same things that I prepared today to take into Sunday", Hill said after Game 6.

"We're not going to be coy with it". But Paul sat out with a sore right hamstring, an injury he suffered at the end of Game 5.

"There's no pressure", Harden said after the Rockets failed to close out the series in game six on Saturday.

In fact, after the first quarter, the Rockets scored only 47 more points the rest of the game. "We're still confident. We're a confident group, and we've just got one chance". "I was just rushing it a little bit".

"I think he's listed as questionable and I'm sure the team doctors will check him out tomorrow morning and see how far he's gotten and see what the possibilities are". The Rockets played well for parts of Game 6 without him, but it's hard to imagine them winning without him on the floor. Golden State can widen their margin for error by keeping Houston off the line, but that is a factor that teams have less control over on a game to game basis.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni, though, calls it "doubtful" and says the team will wait until the last minute to see if Paul can play.

The defending champions trail Houston 3-2 in the best-of-seven series after consecutive wins by the Rockets, capped by Thursday night's 98-94 victory.
