Mike D'Antoni Says Chris Paul Is 'Doubtful' to Play Game 7

Iguodala Day-to-Day Paul Game Time Decision for Game 7 Ian Smith

Although the Houston Rockets got off to an outstanding start in Game 6 against the Golden State Warriors, it was evident that they missed Chris Paul.

The Rockets officially announced that Paul, who injured his right hamstring in Game 5, will miss tonight's game.

With Paul wearing warm-ups and watching from the bench, the Rockets roared out to a 17-point lead after the first quarter and led by 10 at halftime.

Paul's injury is a potentially devastating blow for the Rockets, who are aiming to advance to an National Basketball Association finals showdown with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Still, this game - like so much of this season - will come down to Golden State's level of energy and focus. If he is able to play, the Rockets will have a strong chance to take down the Warriors in front of their home fans.




"So you never want to go to Game 7, but when you're down 3-2, you definitely want to do".

The Houston Rockets can dethrone the reigning champion Golden State Warriors with a win at home court on Monday night. The Warriors scored the first 11 points of the second half to climb out of a 61-51 hole and had seized an 84-77 lead entering the fourth quarter - helped along by Gordon's missing three free throws. In fact, that play - which the Warriors ran seven times in Saturday's win alone - has generated far more points in these six games (42) than it did during the entire 82-game regular season that just passed, according to data from Second Spectrum and NBA Advanced Stats.

The series returns to Houston for the final game of the series on Memorial Day. "We still made mistakes, but we've just got to put a string of 48 minutes together".

After their game 6 victory, Steve Kerr re-emphasized that Iguodala remains day-to-day with his lateral left leg contusion. In the second half, the Warriors outscored the Rockets 66-25 on their to a 115-86 blowout win in game six. Let's take a look at what the Warriors can carry over from Game 6 to keep it meaningful. His numbers are drastically better in Houston's three losses: 31.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 3.7 3-pointers with shooting splits of 48.4 FG% and 40.7 3P%.
