Chris Paul listed as 'questionable' for Game 7, coach says

Rockets guard Chris Paul is questionable for Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors Monday night, according to Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni.

The last time that happened was in the first round, when Cleveland was outscored by in by 40 total points but won the series in seven games.

The Golden State Warriors have spent eight months in a perpetual state of denial.

With Paul wearing warm-ups and watching from the bench, the Rockets roared out to a 17-point lead after the first quarter and led by 10 at halftime.

Thompson finished with 35 points, and Curry added 29, and they combined to shoot a red-hot 14-of-28 from three-point territory.

Chris Paul will be a game-time decision with his injured hamstring.

The only problem is that game sevens in the conference and National Basketball Association finals are not common. He's been useful in this series, averaging 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game while shooting 40.7 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from three. They're 7-2 in Houston this postseason with one of their losses coming in Game 1 of this series.

The Warriors have been in this scenario. If he is able to play, the Rockets will have a strong chance to take down the Warriors in front of their home fans.

Their big three will have to show up if they want to go into Houston and win the conference title for a fourth consecutive season.

Open thread game six: Cleveland Cavaliers versus Boston Celtics
He was proven right with Terry Rozier, Jaylen Brown and rookie Jayson Tatum all thriving as first-time postseason starters. In 2012, he faced a Game 6 elimination in Boston and scored 45 points with 15 rebounds and five rebounds as Miami won.

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.

"He's one of the best players in the league".

It really comes down to who's been in this position before. The last time it happened in the Conference Finals was in 2016 when the Warriors beat the Thunder in seven games despite being outscored by a total of seven points in the series.

The Golden State Warriors look primed for another NBA Finals berth after blowing past the Rockets in a 115-86 in Game 6 to level the series. Who are you going with?
