Thompson scores 35, Warriors force Game 7 in West finals

Golden State Warriors: Game 6 vs. Houston is the biggest game of Kevin Durant’s career

On Monday night, we will know whether the Rockets or the Golden State Warriors will make it to the NBA Finals.

Curry (the Warriors $201 million point guard) passed up the big shot, opting to trust Green to catch a pass and either stick a game victor or hit Klay Thompson in the corner. The Lakers' 49 points in the third quarter of Game 1 of their Western Conference Semifinals matchup with the Warriors helped erase what was a seven-point deficit at halftime.

The Rockets, who led the league with 65 regular season wins, ran roughshod over Golden State in the opening quarter as they raced to a 39-22 lead. This isn't the Klay Thompson who, according to Kevin Durant, completely ditched a practice because he overslept, then erupted for a career-high 60 points the very next night.

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 the second half, everything changed, and it didn't take long to realize that a Game 7 was inevitable.

Their Eastern Conference final is also tied at 3 games apiece.

"We're thrilled with the way he's played and his future here", Kerr said. Coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala continues to have pain when running, so he's still listed as day to day.

Staging the photos was meant to counter the way he had been "so unfairly presented in the media as being sort of shabby". So, as of publication time Tuesday afternoon, Thomas Markle still reportedly plans to walk his daughter down the aisle .

That's what happened in Game 6. The defense was on point, both tight and disruptive, contributing to Houston's enormous turnover total. ". I learned, as I get older, if you play with passion, you play hard, and you leave the game saying I gave everything I have tonight in those 48 minutes, you can live with the result". He's got good genes, he should thank his mum and dad for that.

This Houston group hasn't been to the Finals, and they haven't been to a Game 7 in the Conference Finals (the Warriors beat the Thunder in Game 7 of the WCF two years ago, for example).

Houston had no answer for Thompson while Chris Paul sat out the game with a hamstring injury. They were leaving Houston open for one three-pointer after another.

Here are three things to keep an eye on in this game.

The Warriors went on to win 115-86 to force a Game 7 and were fueled by their four-headed monster, including Curry (five) and Klay Thompson (nine) combining for 14 made 3-pointers.

Houston's Most Valuable Player candidate James Harden dominated early, finishing with 32 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. "So far.we have to win", said Courtney Bell of Oakland, her fists clenched. In a small sample size, the Rockets went from a 149.5 offensive rating in the first to an abysmal 37.7 rating in the fourth.
