Klay Thompson's 35 Points Helps The Warriors Force A G7!

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson celebrates during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets in Oakland Calif. Saturday Golden State Warriors: Game 6 vs. Houston is the biggest game of Kevin Durant’s career

The defending champs have to be the more determined, purposeful team. With Andre Iguodala sidelined the past two games with a left lateral leg contusion, Nick Young and Quinn Cook - two players Kerr would probably prefer not to play on such a big stage - have earned meaningful minutes.

The focus will now shift to Chris Paul and the status of his hamstring sprain for Game 7. Does LeBron have the same lift and explosiveness? He's going to play. From the Celtics' perspective, they just need to make him work hard for them. We'll see if they can carry that into Game 7. In Game 4, the bench contributed 12 points.

Game seven is on Tuesday (NZT) in Houston. That's just the angle we've taken.

"We have a chance to tie the series at home". Paul, in his first season in Houston, has been the wingman Harden has needed for years, a second ball-handler and facilitator for a potent offense. Their third duel in a row made National Basketball Association history previous year, and still managed to average more than 20 million viewers a game.

Fast forward about two months, and McCaw is suiting up - in the biggest game of the season. He has not been the same guy on the road, what does he have to do to be that guy again? I remember one time actually losing a game against the Nuggets and leaving the arena in my uniform I was so mad.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green celebrates with guard Klay Thompson during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets in Oakland Calif. Saturday

Amusing you should ask because I have no idea why I'm writing this as well.

Stephen Curry added 29 points and three blocks in the win over the Rockets, and Draymond Green's defense was top notch (five blocks). Surely enough, Houston has taken a 3-2 series lead, and the Warriors haven't swept a postseason series. Boston is at home, where they are a different team and an undefeated 10-0 this season. Coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala continues to have pain when running, so he's still listed as day to day. "It's not about that. I thought that was a real key tonight". They're really committed to each other.

"We're not going to be coy with it". "We wanted to force Game 7 so badly". Early on, we couldn't believe what we were seeing. "We will be ready to play". To do so without Paul is another matter, and many fans are already expecting a Game 7 on Monday. That, however, is a much smaller stage.

That's how they looked in the second half of Game 1, over the final 45 minutes of Game 3 and over the final 36 minutes of Game 6. Houston committed four quick turnovers. The series is heading back to Houston for one more contest.

So why would I put down a stupid title saying that Game 7 is a win regardless of the result when we haven't even played it yet? They've got size and strength at every position.
