Golden State Warriors win Game 6 vs. Rockets thanks to Klay Thompson

Warriors may have run a play for Stephen Curry suggested by writer in Game 6

Then came one of their trademark third-quarter surges. The Warriors outscored the Rockets 64-25 in the second half and a big reason for that was Thompson's shooting from deep. Forced a seventh game in Houston Monday night - a great achievement.

Costly turnovers and wildly missed jump shots doomed the Houston Rockets. They fell apart. Couldn't shoot.

Curry's Splash Brother did it in 2016 when he scored 41 points against Durant's former Thunder team with the Warriors facing elimination. But only 10 of those points, and two of those assists, came after halftime, a performance Thompson helped produce.

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.

In Games 2, 3 and 4 against Houston, Thompson shot 13 for 38 from the field, but that's nearly a bad sign for the opposing team, since it means he's due.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr felt terribly for Paul - and others who have gone down. He doesn't worry about judgment and results. The pressure doesn't seem to bother him much. These guys train so hard and they're here and they're competing, and you want everybody to be healthy, but just the reality is it usually doesn't work out that way.

Thompson went a combined 20 of 32 from three-point range in those two Game 6s. 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. Then Thompson hit a three-pointer from the left wing at 9:40 for an 89-77 lead. Paul, in his first season in Houston, has been the wingman Harden has needed for years, a second ball-handler and facilitator for a potent offense. It may stay that way Saturday night, considering McCaw has not seen game action in almost two months. "I think he just loves to play", Kerr said via ESPN.

But in the early going it looked like the Warriors would do just that. He is getting treatments around the clock.

"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. Kevon Looney has started for Iguodala in all three games. "It's a bone bruise". We know what we have to do. That mindset Saturday night helped propel the Warriors to a victory, and kept their season alive for at least another 48 of them Monday night in Houston.

Steve Kerr can say the Warriors aren't anxious down 3-2, and perhaps they're not. "Our guys have been through a lot". But I thought we had a couple breakthroughs that were going to lead to this game.

The Celtics have already played a Game 7 in this postseason, handily beating Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round.
