Five ridiculous numbers from Warriors' Game 6 win over Rockets

Five ridiculous numbers from Warriors' Game 6 win over Rockets

The Houston Rockets opened up a 17-point edge after one period, couldn't miss and led the Golden State Warriors by 10 going into half of Game 6 on Saturday night, a contest Golden State had to have to keep its season alive. Paul essentially gives the Rockets two point guards in himself and James Harden, and allows Harden so much more freedom and spacing to be an elite scorer.

Thompson went a combined 20 of 32 from three-point range in those two Game 6s. They're champs. They're going to come back fighting, and they did.

While touring China, Klay Thompson's alter ego took the National Basketball Association world by storm last summer after the Warriors' second title in three years, partly because this isn't the Klay Thompson we get to see on a regular basis. They need to do Sunday what they did in that first Game 7 - the win starts on the defensive end, making LeBron work for his buckets and not letting the supporting cast get rolling. And we found ourselves with a Western Conference finals series knotted at three games apiece instead. If the Warriors win Game 6, the Rockets would host Game 7 at 9 p.m. on Monday at the Toyota Center. Kevon Looney has started for Iguodala's absence in all three games.

We may actually never know if this was actually the same play which Duncan passed along, but regardless, it'd be an awesome story.

Four games after Bell returned from that injury, he went on to suffer a sprained right ankle.

Doctors do that with an embolisation - snaking a catheter into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it. The hospitalization comes as Melania Trump , 48, has taken a higher-profile role in the White House in recent weeks.

"He's gotten a lot better over the last two weeks".

"We like our defense against these guys, and we feel confident that we can carry this through to Game 7 on the road and continue to make things as hard as possible on Houston without fouling".

"I've tried my best all year to try and not talk about their age", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after Game 6. It has only happened nine times in the last decade and this is the first season since 1979 that both conference finals have gone to game seven. We're going to do what we've got to do to win this game. It's that when things got tight they were more resistant to giving in. Let's just get that out there. Houston committed four quick turnovers.

That day, the one player on the court who looked comfortable was Thompson, who had 41 points in the game - including 19 in the fourth quarter - to lead the Warriors to an improbable comeback victory. Harden has had plenty of playoff disappointments in the last few years and embraces the chance to get Houston back into the finals.

Win or lose, the storyline for Game 6 is the same for Durant: It's the biggest game of his career.
