Golden State Warriors' Andre Iguodala has second opinion on knee injury,

Open thread game seven: Houston Rockets versus Golden State Warriors Klay on huge Dubs rally: ‘We can make an 11-point lead evaporate with 2 minutes of good basketball’

When the Golden State Warriors lost Game 5 of the Western Conference finals to the Rockets last week to send them to the brink of elimination they vowed to be back in Houston for Game 7.

"I thought we had good looks", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said after the game. During that time, he helped the Rockets win the NBA Finals in 1994 against the New York Knicks and in 1995 against Orlando Magic.

Both teams rallied from 3-2 series deficits in the conference finals.

Golden State looked so bad in the first half that Steve Kerr, the back-to-back recipient of the Rudy Tomjanovich Award that honors the most media-friendly National Basketball Association coach, cut short his between-quarters interview with TNT. Thompson got going and so did Durant. In fact, they were 29-for-46 (63.0 percent) from 2-point range for the game.

Their early lead provided even more false security for a team that already had to work without Paul in Games 6 and 7; that right hamstring strain suffered in the final minute of the Rockets' Game 5 win ending his season prematurely.




Steph Curry inspired an "unbelievable" second-half comeback as Warriors beat Houston Rockets 101-92. The Warriors did that in both Games 6 and 7.

"This is a situation we've never been in before.to win a Game 7 on the road, keep our composure for the whole series", Curry said after the game. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial no matter what package you choose, and you can then watch the game live on your computer via the DirecTV Now website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the DirecTV Now app.

Maybe it's as simple as a team not being able to sustain that level of intensity for 48 minutes, so they subconsciously dial it back in the first half. We had an opportunity tonight and last game without Chris. The Rockets fell apart in the second half again after doing so in Game 6.

"I took a tip from some PGA guys - when they're out there on the course and it gets kind of logjammed on a couple of holes they've got to slow themselves down between shots", Curry told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I don't have much else to say".

The Warriors will be without one of their key players in their most important game of the season yet. Houston kept firing threes despite missing consistently.
