Rockets' Chris Paul likely a game-time decision for Monday's Game 7

Golden State Warriors guard Nick Young celebrates in front of Houston Rockets guard James Harden during game six

And we found ourselves with a Western Conference finals series knotted at three games apiece instead.

"Great energy, great speed and athleticism", Kerr said. "We're still confident. We're a confident group, and we've just got one chance".

Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors bank on blistering second-half run to turn the game around. "Not all is lost". It's a major blow for a team which is looking to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in more than two decades. "Kind of play it by ear right now", D'Antoni added. "They will eventually test it and see if there's any possibility whatsoever". "They're looking forward to it".

James Harden was fantastic early, posting 32 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. He's excited to play basketball, whether it's Game 2 of the regular season, or Game 6 of the Western Conference finals. "There is pressure on everybody".

Gordon has been a key contributor to the Rockets' success off the bench in the series.

The Warriors were also short-handed, with Andre Iguodala, the most valuable player in the 2015 N.B.A. finals, missing his third successive game with a lower leg contusion.

"It's an opportunity that a lot of people never had and probably won't ever have", he said. "So we're going to come out and be ready". "So nothing changes for us". Chris Paul injured his hamstring in the closing minute of the fourth quarter and was quickly ruled out for tonight's Game 6.

For starters, Golden State, in an effort to force the Rockets into defensive catch-22s, has begun leaning considerably on pick-and-pop sets in which Thompson comes over to set a screen for either Curry or Durant.

"This series is really all about guarding the screen-and-roll defensively", Kerr said. Hill was aggressive, got into the paint, and from there is both a scorer and a distributor in the last game in Cleveland.

Instead, they scored just 45 points in the first half, couldn't get into any sort of rhythm offensively, and failed to make a field goal in the final minute of regulation. "So we'll just keep taking it day by day and see what happens". The Golden State Warriors have been shaky all playoffs on the road and have had trouble with the Rockets defense the last two trips in Houston.

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

"I think Klay doesn't worry too much about repercussions", Kerr said. We watched film, and honestly ... we didn't play great defence last night. "I think Pat's comfortable with it". "It's just not a question of trying to outsmart".

Open thread game six: Cleveland Cavaliers versus Boston Celtics
James scored 26 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, but he didn't dominate the game as he normally does. He can be a free agent at season's end and will consider coming back to the Cavs as well as a host of other options.
