Iguodala Day-to-Day Paul Game Time Decision for Game 7 Ian Smith

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee tweeted on Monday afternoon that Paul will be on the floor against the Golden State Warriors after missing Game 6 with a hamstring injury.

"The bottom line is we can't turn it over and we need to do a better job", D'Antoni said of the Rockets' 21 turnovers in Game 6, with Harden (nine) and Gordon (five) responsible for two-thirds of that total.

Chris Paul could possibly miss Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets were without starting point guard Chris Paul, who is out with a hamstring injury. The Rockets actually led 39-22 after one quarter, but the lead was cut to 10 by halftime. Sympathy for Golden State's plight is likely to be scarce, given Paul's absence for Houston, but Golden State has clearly missed Iguodala's settling nature and passing instincts against Houston's unrelenting physicality.

Then the second half started, and soon after, the Warriors blew the game wide open.

Klay Thompson has been the primary defender on James Harden for a team-high 139 possessions in this series.

In fact, after the first quarter, the Rockets scored only 47 more points the rest of the game.

The record was previously held by the Los Angeles Lakers, who, coincidentally, outscored the Warriors by 37 points (73-36) in Game 3 of the 1973 Western Conference Finals. The Cavaliers eliminated the Boston Celtics in last night's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. In fact, last season, when the Cavaliers and Warriors squared off for the National Basketball Association title, it marked the first time the same two teams had faced each other in the Finals three years in a row. The under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Houston.

Thompson's second-half outburst - reminiscent of his landscape-changing Game 6 showing against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the West finals two years ago - lifted the Warriors to a 115-86 victory Saturday, giving the league two Game 7s this holiday weekend.
