Chris Paul is 'game-time decision' for Game 7

Stephen Curry said the Warriors are encouraged despite falling behind in the series because they believe both games could have gone their way and that a few simple corrections will get them back on track.

The record was previously held by the Los Angeles Lakers, who, coincidentally, outscored the Warriors by 37 points (73-36) in Game 3 of the 1973 Western Conference Finals.

James Harden will need to be aggressive attacking the rim and forcing contact if the Rockets want to have a good shot of winning Game 7. "I told him well, let's go to a baseball game and you can still see it from the outside since they're right next door", said Soto.

Will Paul be able to go for the biggest game in the National Basketball Association this season, and the biggest game of his life?

Note: All predictions were made before Game 7 of each conference finals series. But there is a little bit of an advantage [that] comes on the enthusiasm.

Curry quickly jumped in to correct his teammate. Kyle Korver needs to find space and knock down threes, the good J.R. Smith needs to show up (that version of him missed a lot of time this series, he's been terrible for several games), and Tristan Thompson needs to get some offensive rebounds. The Rockets averaged 15 turnovers per game over the first five contests of the series before that number jumped to 21 for Game 6. The Rockets were without Chris Paul who missed the game after injuring his hamstring in the fourth quarter of game six.

"All our doctors are with us", D'Antoni said, explaining why Paul traveled for Game 6 after he had been ruled out. While Harden handled most of the ball-handling duties, Gordon got hot from distance, hitting 4-of-6 three pointers while scoring eight of the Rockets' first 10 points. There's no pressure. It's an opportunity that we all are excited to be a part of: Game 7 at our house. Bottom line, if there's one thing we know will happen in this game, it's LeBron will be great. "We worked too hard this season to go home".

Game seven is on Tuesday (NZT) in Houston.

"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". They were hoping for a tour of Oracle Arena but say it was sold out. We've got a whole city behind us, and they're as loyal as they come. Assuming that Paul is indeed unable to play, I'm going with the Warriors to pull away in the second half and come away with the win.

"Our guys have a ton of character and a ton of competitiveness, desire", he said.
