"It's what you play for, to be in a situation where you're one win away from going to the finals". On Saturday night, the Warriors routed the Rockets, 115-86.
The Rockets are facing similar uncertainty with the status of Chris Paul, although the team sounded less pessimistic than the Warriors did about Iguodala returning.
Chris Paul will be a game-time decision with his injured hamstring. Even so, network execs could have reason to wonder if the lack of novelty could erode viewership - though if the conference championship round has taught us anything, it's that the best ratings tonic is often a seven-game series. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Houston rapper Slim Thug will headline the Lift-Off Party, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Tip-off is at 8:00 p.m. Curry quickly jumped in to correct his teammate. He will miss his fourth straight game Monday. The point guard is trying to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in his career, and he suffered the injury during the closing stretch of Houston's 98-94 win in Game 5.

"It's going good", D'Antoni said of Paul's rehab in a conference call Sunday afternoon. Houston had 25 points in the second half and shot 2-of-9 from three in the third quarter. "There's no pressure. It's an opportunity, an opportunity that we all are excited to be a part of", he said. He averaged six points and 3.8 rebounds per game in the regular season. Not all that surprising since the loss will become insignificant to the Rockets if they can close out game 7 at home anyway. "We've got a whole city behind us, and they're as loyal as they come". Prior to the win, Kerr seemed genuinely sympathetic toward CP3. "Our guys have a ton of character and a ton of competitiveness, desire", he said.
Golden State has survived without veteran swingman Andre Iguodala, who has missed the last three games of the series and is questionable for the finale with a left lateral leg contusion.
While Houston is a minus-54 for the series through six games, they are plus-13 at home, which is the site of Game 7. Basketball fans around the world deserve to see these two great teams battle each other without any significant absences from key players.
