Paul receiving regular treatment to return for Rockets

The Warriors saved their season in dramatic fashion in Game 6 against the Rockets, falling behind by 17 points in the 1st quarter, and then winning by 29 points.

The Western Conference Finals has been a chaotic rollercoaster.

And on Saturday, Thompson's steady mind and hot shooting hand brought about 35 points on 9-of-14 shooting from behind the arc and a Game 7 on Monday in Houston. Sympathy for Golden State's plight is likely to be scarce, given Paul's absence for Houston, but Golden State has clearly missed Iguodala's settling nature and passing instincts against Houston's unrelenting physicality.

Thompson insisted the Warriors remain equally focused, adding: "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".

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. Last night, we defended the whole team well.

Harden had nine turnovers himself and without Chris Paul he was tasked with the majority of the ball handling, which allowed the Warriors to zero in on him.


The big question now is if the Warriors can carry over this offensive momentum from Game 6 into Game 7. Of course not; Curry deserves a great deal of blame, as do Thompson and Green.

Thompson went a combined 20 of 32 from 3-point range in those two impressive Game 6 shows, Saturday and in 2016. But it's important to remember that the Warriors never needed Durant; he was the cherry on top of a formidable roster.

This is quite an unfortunate time for Paul to have a hamstring injury occur during the late stage of the playoffs in what has been the most successful trip that has seen him finally get past the second round of the postseason.

Paul's right leg will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston following Game 6. The Rockets, one of the elite offensive teams in National Basketball Association history, scored only 25 points in 24 minutes after halftime.

The status of Rockets point guard Chris Paul for Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals is an unknown in the aftermath of Houston's 115-86 loss in Game 6 on Saturday. The MVP front-runner shot just 5-of-21 from the field and missed all 11 of his 3-point attempts in Game 5. But to say that Thompson went "unconscious" would be to imply that his Game 6 performance came about from a deviance in his normal mentality. They lost to the Cavs in the NBA Finals, but that series win set things up for Kevin Durant to eventually join the team. If he can not come up big and get Golden State back to the NBA Finals, the critics will only grow louder for Durant. Coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala continues to have pain when running, so he's still listed as day to day.
