Warriors’ Game 6 Revival Keeps Series Alive Against the Rockets

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shoots past Houston Rockets forward PJ Tucker

The two biggest stories heading into game 6 of the Western Conference Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets are the key injuries both teams are dealing with.

While the Rockets will be down a starter, the Warriors could get one back if Andre Iguodala can return on Saturday.

The way Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry were shooting it probably wouldn't have changed the outcome of Game 6, but the Houston Rockets missed Chris Paul. Four years later, Durant had the Warriors on the ropes up 3-1, but he and the Thunder couldn't win one out of three games, squandering the chance to defeat the 73-win Warriors - which he, in particular, was crucified for.

Paul's status will loom large over Game 7, but it may not mean anything if the Warriors finally play up to their potential.

"I think the way we've played the last two games, we've played good enough to win and just haven't gotten the job done", Curry said after Game 5.

London's Metropolitan Police and Los Angeles prosecutors have said they are reviewing accusations of sexual assault against him. Weinstein , 66, was charged with rape, criminal sex act, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct for cases involving two women.

Remember, the Rockets have now gone four straight games without breaking 100 points, and Harden appeared beaten in the fourth quarter Saturday where he went scoreless. None of them have distinguished themselves since Iguodala suffered a bone bruise on his left knee in Game 3. The Warriors were facing elimination at the time but won that game and took home the series. It's a major blow for a team which is looking to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in more than two decades. It's not impossible for Houston to close out the series on Saturday, but Paul's injury makes it extremely unlikely.

The Rockets will have home-court advantage and their fans will create a raucous environment at the Toyota Center, but it will be extremely hard to take down the Warriors in a Game 7 without CP3. They're champs. They're going to come back fighting, and they did. Steve Kerr eschewed the Kevin Durant isos and post-ups that allowed Houston to shrink the floor on defense in previous games.

"We still winning this", Green said, according to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic. "When we do that, and we rotate, and we help each other we're the best defensive team in the league". "We want to take advantage of it".

A lot of things have been said about Draymond Green.
