Warriors 115-86 Rockets: epic comeback leads to Game 7 showdown

Chris Paul

The Rockets have pushed the Warriors to the brink of elimination in the Western Conference finals and can finish off Golden State in Game 6 at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors slightly turned it around in the second quarter, outscoring Houston 29-22 to cut their deficit to 10 points at halftime. Sympathy for Golden State's plight is likely to be scarce, given Paul's absence for Houston, but Golden State has clearly missed Iguodala's settling nature and passing instincts against Houston's unrelenting physicality. And roaring Oracle Arena went insane with hopes of even more home games to come if Golden State can get to a fourth straight finals.

With the Rockets now leading 3-2 in the best-of-7 Western Conference Finals, Houston is only one win away from its first trip to the NBA Finals since Bill Clinton's first term as President.

The Warriors looked tight on offense.

It took two and a half minutes for the Warriors to score the first 11 points of the second half to take the lead and the two teams went shot-for-shot for much of the rest of the quarter.

Tom Cairney goal takes Fulham back to the Premier League
But although Fulham had an average age of three years younger than Villa, there was no sign of stage-fright from Jokanovic's team. Tom Cairney's goal in the first-half was enough to secure a return to the top flight for the Craven Cottage side.

It turns out that playing the Golden State Warriors on the road without one of their two best players was exactly as tough as it was predicted to be for the Houston Rockets.

"It's something we talked about building up all year", Houston's P.J. Tucker said. After some mild criticism for his style of play, Durant still had an impactful game-he scored 23 points and repeatedly got to the free-throw line to offset inefficiency from the field. But you can not debate whether the path has been laid: two titles in three years and now a third in sight after Sunday's 115-86 Game 6 victory against the Houston Rockets. A Rockets team that couldn't miss in the first half struggled to make 3s in the second (4-of-17). Now they go back to Houston where the role players are more consistent and the whistle tends to favor the otherside.

"All our doctors are with us", D'Antoni said, explaining why Paul traveled for Game 6 after he had been ruled out.

"He can get the same type of treatment", D'Antoni said. "They see the challenge ... whether CP's there or not, it's a heck of a challenge, and they're up to it. It's always great to have him making those shots - shooting those shots - but a lot of them were wide open because once the defense kicked in, we broke the dam". "They're looking forward to it". "He's so integral in what we do and the spirit of the team".
