The Warriors might have "broken the dam" on the offensive end in Game 6, but their early-game struggles should give fans pause heading into Game 7. Meanwhile, the Warriors came out cold on offense.
Note: All predictions were made before Game 7 of each conference finals series. Couldn't defend. Couldn't keep up with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the Splash Brothers, who outscored the Rockets 37-25 during the second half and put the game away. Paul has not yet been officially ruled out for Game 7 but the rumors are that he isn't likely to play. Turnovers can lead to easy fast-break buckets for a Warriors team that usually operates at a breakneck pace. "I looked over at [Rockets forward] Trevor Ariza in the middle of the fourth quarter and we just both said to each other, 'This is fun; this is what you love about NBA basketball.' If you can't push through for 48 minutes in this type of environment, you don't love the game".
"We're not going to be coy with it". "We'll just have to play it by ear".
However, Curry's shot started falling more often after Game 2, and he's averaged 28.5 points in his last four games, including a team-high 35 in a Game 3 victory. "Oh my God, Game 7, no kidding", said Calderas.
The Rockets aren't dwelling on their missed opportunity to close out the series as they get ready for Monday's game where they'll try to punch their ticket to finals for the first time since winning back-to-back titles in 1995-95. "We're still confident. We're a confident group, and we've just got one chance".

Kerr told reporters, "I'll question him tonight, and I'll tell him that he's playing".
Eric Gordon, starting in place of Paul, had 19 points, Trevor Ariza 14 and Gerald Green 11 for the Rockets, who shot 40.3 percent from the field. "I remember one time actually losing a game against the Nuggets and leaving the arena in my uniform I was so mad. As Sports Illustrated points out, it was a return to the magic formula that the team is known: "(Coach) Steve Kerr eschewed the Kevin Durant isos and post-ups that allowed Houston to shrink the floor on defense in previous games.
