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

Adjust Comment Print

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala missed Game 6 of the Western Conference finals Saturday night. The Rockets went 15-9 without Paul during the regular season - 15-6 when probable MVP James Harden and blossoming star center Clint Capela both played - but were blown out by the Warriors in Game 6 despite building an early 17-point lead.

It was a valiant effort for a Rockets squad who, without their other All-Star point guard, was expected to simply hand over this game in preparation for Game 7. He scored 35 points, making nine three-pointers; it was reminiscent of his scintillating Game 6 performance two years ago against Oklahoma City when he scored 41 points and made a record 11 three-pointers. The Lakers' 49 points in the third quarter of Game 1 of their Western Conference Semifinals matchup with the Warriors helped erase what was a seven-point deficit at halftime.

Golden State typically performs well in third quarters and Houston never quite recovered.

Of course, Golden State rediscovered its form, flying past the Rockets for a 115-86 blowout victory to even the series at 3-3. The Warriors won Game 1 in Houston, and the Rockets responded, winning by 22 in Game 2.

Kerr was asked about Looney's status for Monday's game. As soon as we know we'll say it, but we might not know until afternoon, and see how it goes or he tests it out. He is going to have to have another game like that if the Rockets want a chance.

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. Chris Paul injured his hamstring in the closing minute of the fourth quarter and was quickly ruled out for tonight's Game 6.
