If at any point of the season (or the summer before the season) anyone had said the Rockets would be at home for game seven against the Golden State Warriors for a chance to go to the NBA Finals, we would all have absolutely been happy to accept. Paul has averaged 21.1 points, 5.8 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game during the postseason.
Klay produced an offensive explosion as he posted 41 points and hit 11 three-pointers. After struggling to run back on defense, Paul paced around before leaving the game. The Rockets actually led 39-22 after one quarter, but the lead was cut to 10 by halftime.
The Western Conference Finals heads back to Toyota Center as the Rockets looking to wind up the series against Steph Curry and the Warriors, and claim their golden ticket to the 2018 NBA Finals. He played 46 minutes the following game but still came up big with 46 points to send the series to a seventh and deciding game. Yet, the Rockets anticipated Paul sitting out for the second consecutive playoff game after not testing his hamstring until on Monday. Of the team's four All-Stars, he gets the least attention, but Thompson delivered a performance reminiscent of his heroics in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in 2016, when he scored 41 points with Golden State facing elimination against an Oklahoma City team featuring Durant.

At the time, a Justice Department attorney agreed that muting would enable Trump to avoid a tweet he doesn't want to read. The seven users had each tweeted a message critical of the president before they were blocked.
Curry and Kevin Durant, meanwhile, played like the MVPs they've been, at least in the second half. That's one of the more ridiculous quarter-by-quarter box scores you'll ever see and it underscores just how good the Warriors were in the second half.and how bad the Rockets were as well.
"So you never want to go to Game 7, but when you're down 3-2, you definitely want to do".
It is probable that Paul wouldn't be 100 percent in time for the finals even if he rested for Game 7. He hasn't yet tested the hamstring, according to D'Antoni.
If Iguodala and Paul return, they may not necessarily be at full strength, but their presence will certainly make an already exciting game that much more compelling.

The Rockets will need to try and figure out a way to survive without Paul.
Golden State looked so bad in the first half that Steve Kerr, the back-to-back recipient of the Rudy Tomjanovich Award that honors the most media-friendly National Basketball Association coach, cut short his between-quarters interview with TNT.
