Warriors’ Game 6 Revival Keeps Series Alive Against the Rockets

Klay Thompson

Last year, the Warriors clinched the championship in only five games, not ideal from a network or advertiser point of view, so that kind of one-sided Finals series is always possible. The Cavaliers eliminated the Boston Celtics in last night's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. "They may not always focus, but they compete". Throw in some awful defensive communication errors by the Warriors, and the Rockets were raining threes in the first half - 11-of-22, with Gordon going 4-of-4. The Rockets raced to a 17-point lead in the first quarter of Game 6 only to run out of steam without Paul present to alleviate the pressure on fellow guards James Harden and Eric Gordon. Here's what you need to know about Warriors and Rockets going into the Western Conference Finals. They claim it had nothing to do with being exhausted, but it was hard to not see a problem with players like Joe Johnson and Ryan Anderson taking the floor as Curry danced on everybody. "There's no pressure. It's an opportunity, an opportunity that we all are excited to be a part of", he said.

And while it's easy enough to say that the Warriors simply shot better Saturday, there was a bit more to it than just that.

The Warriors have a thin wing rotation as they have continued to have an excess of centers.

It took two and a half minutes for the Warriors to score the first 11 points of the second half to take the lead and the two teams went shot-for-shot for much of the rest of the quarter. Why would any team in its right mind let him shoot even more?

'It was really hard after Mo's injury'
Aziz added that Salah would hopefully be in the final list of Egypt's team at the World Cup, to be officially announced on June 4. However, many Liverpool fans were left angry and disappointed when Salah was brought down by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos .

Game 7 will be on Monday night in Houston. "Probably if any of those three disagree, he's probably not going".

Kevin Durant added 23 for the Warriors. From there, they rolled over the short-handed Rockets. It slows the Warriors' offense down while making them more predictable, and that favors the Rockets' defense. And then once you get them going and they get out of the box, and we didn't communicate real well two or three times, and then they just got on a roll.

It just took a lot of pressure from a Rockets team to get Golden State into that mental frame of mind.

How important has PJ Tucker been for the Rockets in this series?
