Golden State Warriors beat Houston Rockets, force Game 7

Patrick Mc Caw shot

The timeline remained unclear whether Paul might be fine to play a possible Game 7 if the Rockets lost Saturday night's Game 6 and had to return to Houston to face the Golden State Warriors again Monday night.

The Warriors claimed a 115-86 triumph at Oracle Arena to bounce back from successive defeats and force an all-important Game 7 on Tuesday (2am United Kingdom time).

The Rockets made eight 3-pointers during the first quarter, and the Warriors made just one. Harden finished with 32 points, seven rebounds and nine assists in 40 minutes. We're still confident. We're a confident group. He doesn't worry about judgment and results. Scoring 25 points in the second half after dropping 39 in the first quarter simply wasn't going to get it done for the Rockets.

"We're operating under the assumption that he will not play, but he is literally day-to-day", Kerr said.

"I like that fire and energy when you know he's engaged and appreciating what he's bringing to the game", Curry said after Game 6.

Chris Paul's status for the final game of the Western Conference finals doesn't look promising. The presumptive league MVP had a strong game, holding up admirably while Paul watched from the sidelines with a hamstring injury he suffered in the final minute of Houston's Game 5 win. Oh, and the typically subdued Thompson let his emotions flow for all to see: He flexed his biceps Draymond Green style, pumped his arms like Kevin Durant and yelled out the way Stephen Curry often does at Oracle Arena.

On the secret to their second-half turnaround, Thompson - who was nine-for-14 from three-point range - added: "Effort, intensity and passion". The pressure doesn't seem to bother him much.

No arguing they both appreciate Thompson's no-fear shooting approach and ability to nearly single-handedly turn the tide of a game with a timely 3-pointer or two - or nine.

So it was important Green be given liberty to roam on the defensive end Game 6 - to be in the fray.

The Warriors opened the third with an 11-0 burst to go ahead 62-61 on Curry's 3 at 9:17, also getting a pair of 3s from Thompson and a dunk by Durant. "He's so comfortable in his own skin", Kerr said, knowing that so many National Basketball Association players-superstars and scrubs alike-are not. "So, when you have that kind of recipe mixed in, good things do happen usually at the right time". They're champs. They're going to come back fighting, and they did.
