  • Iguodala Day-to-Day Paul Game Time Decision for Game 7 Ian Smith

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr gets "butterflies" ahead of Game 7Chris Paul is listed as questionable for the Rockets but it's hard to imagine him playing much on a bad hamstring.

But the big story in, and the big problem for, Houston will be the injury to superstar guard Chris Paul, who missed Game 6 - when the Rockets had an opportunity to wrap up the series - with a hamstring injury.

"I think it's a game-time decision", D'Antoni added. "He couldn't push off of it". Not only does Paul rank second to Harden in points (19.8) and assists (4.6) in this series, he leads all players in the series (and second only to LeBron is the Conference Finals) in potential assists (12.2 per game). In fact, the Warriors trailed by as many as 17 points in the first quarter but Thompson just couldn't miss and there's no doubt the Warriors got the benefit of a lot of foul calls at home.

Whatever happened to EG3 in the second half, he was lights out in the first, hitting threes and getting to the basket. The Rockets emerge significantly huge heading into Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against Golden State tonight at the Toyota Center in Houston.

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. Harden shot 36.7 percent from 3-point range during the regular season, but he's shooting an abysmal 26.2 percent from long range during the series, and that number includes a 5-for-9 performance in Game 1.


Watch a preview of the Warriors-Rockets Game 7 in the video below, from the ESPN experts. They're champs. They were going to come back fighting and they did their part.

Houston have one more chance to claim the ticket to the NBA Finals after a 29-point deficit blowout defeat to the Warriors.

All eyes will be on how the Rockets respond on their home court after suffering a second-half dismantling in Oakland.

How important has PJ Tucker been for the Rockets in this series?

In Game 6, the Warriors tried to attack Houston with isolation and a heavy diet of Durant shots. It will be rocking, and H-town will be fired up.
