  • Warriors may have run a play for Stephen Curry suggested by writer in Game 6

Outscored the Houston Rockets 33-16 in the third, 31-9 in the fourth and won 115-86. That run should be discouraging to Houston not just because of the numbers but because of how Golden State accomplished them - Stephen Curry catching fire, Klay Thompson going off, stout defense, improved ball movement. These guys train so hard and they're here and they're competing, and you want everybody to be healthy, but just the reality is it usually doesn't work out that way.

The teams will travel back to Houston where the Western Conference championship will be decided on Monday.

But in the early going it looked like the Warriors season could be coming to an end. Rockets Raise 100k for Santa Fe Strong Fund from Game 6 Watch Party at Toyata Center Officials said 10,000 tickets were sold and raised $100,000 for the Santa Fe Strong Memorial Fund.

Las Vegas sportsbooks have the Warriors as a 5 to 5.5-point favorite vs the Rockets in Game 7.

When Thompson decimated the Thunder two years ago, the Warriors rode the resulting momentum wave to a Game 7 victory at home. The Rockets' star point guard suffered a right hamstring injury late in Game 5 that kept him out of Game 6. "We've just got one chance", he said.

James Harden had a team-high 32 points for the Rockets, including 15 in the first quarter.

It was a valiant effort for a Rockets squad who, without their other All-Star point guard, was expected to simply hand over this game in preparation for Game 7.

As Golden State has played unevenly in these Western Conference finals, media members and fans have seized on a possible custody dispute between Curry and Durant for control of the offense.

When Paul strolled into practice Friday morning after the game and after the night talking with Harden, he was smiling and laughing. Thompson finished with 35 points and nine 3s -tied for the second-most 3s in a playoff game ever, second to himself. "You could tell Houston could see it, they could see the Finals right here". 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. The Rockets had 22 turnovers, with the Harden-Gordon backcourt combining for 14. We knew what we were up against. They need to do that one more time to reach the Finals. On Saturday when the Rockets were being blown out in Oakland, the Astros were dropping a game to the Indians in Cleveland. It has only happened nine times in the last decade and this is the first season since 1979 that both conference finals have gone to game seven.

"It's something we talked about building up all year", Houston's P.J. Tucker said.
