Golden State Warriors Rout Houston Rockets for Force Game 7

Golden State Warriors Rout Houston Rockets for Force Game 7

Paul, acquired by the Rockets last offseason to provide the backcourt depth required to challenge the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, departed with 22.4 seconds remaining in Houston's 98-94 win in Game 5 at Toyota Center and sat out Golden State's 115-86 win in Game 6 at Oracle Arena. Paul posted 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting in the Rockets' 95-92 Game 4 win on Tuesday to tie the series, 2-2.

Paul, a 13-year veteran who advanced to the conference finals for the first time in his career, has averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists during the postseason.

Tucker's 3 was the first of seven straight points for Houston which cut the lead to 89-83.

Harvey Weinstein charged with rape by NY police
Vance's office previously in 2015, when model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez told police that the producer had allegedly groped her. Rose McGowan appeared on Megyn Kelly TODAY on Friday morning to discuss Harvey Weinstein's arrest for rape and other charges.

He mentioned that the assessment wasn't gamesmanship or an attempt to be coy and that they'd be more direct about Paul's status the moment they have more clarity.

Reputations and images and legacies also can and will be determined in this winner-take-all battle between the Warriors and Rockets. He played 46 minutes the following game but still came up big with 46 points to send the series to a seventh and deciding game.

Houston missed Paul's composure and steady point guard hand, which could be expected. Of the team's four All-Stars, he gets the least attention, but Thompson delivered a performance reminiscent of his heroics in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in 2016, when he scored 41 points with Golden State facing elimination against an Oklahoma City team featuring Durant. That just means James Harden will have to heighten his game to a level he's never reached especially on a stage like this. Harden had to rest during a run by Golden State in the fourth quarter and Houston clearly lacked someone that could dominate the ball and score points. That win equalized the series up at 3-3, forcing a decision-time Game 7 to dictate which of these powerhouse teams will move on to the 2018 NBA Finals to battle on the Cleveland Cavaliers tot claim the championship title. The Warriors won the second half 64-25. Paul has not tested his hamstring since straining it in Game 5. Houston missed all 14 3s that it launched in the third quarter, part of a stretch of 27 straight missed 3s, the longest such drought during a playoff game in National Basketball Association history. Here's what you need to know about Warriors and Rockets going into the Western Conference Finals. Steve Kerr eschewed the Kevin Durant isos and post-ups that allowed Houston to shrink the floor on defense in previous games. The head coach says Paul's recovery is going well, but he's going to be listed as questionable for Monday's game.
