Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors - 5/28/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shoots past Houston Rockets forward PJ Tucker

They'll have that opportunity, but Rockets co-star Chris Paul's status is in serious doubt because of a right hamstring strain that sidelined him Saturday night.

The Houston Rockets, playing without injured All-Star point guard Chris Paul, waltzed into Golden State Saturday and punched the Warriors in the mouth to the tune of a 39-22 first-quarter lead in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals. He will be re-evaluated when the Rockets return to Houston, according to the team.

And if all of that doesn't convince you that Game 6 is a defining moment for Durant's career, maybe this snippet will: Imagine if two months from now, you're looking back on the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs and are talking about how the Warriors were up 2-1 on the Rockets after winning Game 3 by 41 points.

Harden, though, said his side remains confident of sealing the series.

"We like our defense against these guys, and we feel confident that we can carry this through to Game 7 on the road and continue to make things as hard as possible on Houston without fouling".


"We've got plenty of guys over there that will have some fresh legs, that's for sure", the coach said. Don't be shocked if he starts Game 7 for Golden State.

But it did not come easy and Steve Kerr's team found themselves 17 points down on home court in the first quarter and still trailing by 10 at half-time.

"We like our formula", Kerr said. But we can't count on it. Injuries happen, and you've just got to play with whoever's out there. Paul and Co. have been working all season for this moment, only to now see it possibly go up in smoke. Using the momentum, they never looked back.

If the Golden State Warriors are anxious as they head into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on the brink of elimination, they aren't showing it. What we did in that first half, that shows what we can do. The Warriors were at their best with Bell as the fifth man with the four All-Stars, he brought an energy and athleticism that made things flow on both ends.

"If we take the same focus and execute the game plan like we should, I have all the confidence in the world in this team [to win Game 7]". I hate to see Kevin Love last night, Kyrie (Irving). "We want to take advantage of it".
