Thompson scores 35, Warriors force Game 7 in West finals

  • Warriors may have run a play for Stephen Curry suggested by writer in Game 6

In Games 2, 3 and 4 against Houston, Thompson shot 13 for 38 from the field, but that's nearly a bad sign for the opposing team, since it means he's due.

Notable entries on Sunday opposite the basketball game are NBC's America Ninja Warriors, ABC's America's Funniest Home Videos and two-hour Deception season finale, and NASCAR's Coca-Cola 600 race on Fox. The nine-time All-Star will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Houston.

Klay Thompson scored 35 points, Stephen Curry scored 29 and Kevin Durant added 23 as the Warriors rallied.

The 2018 Western Conference Finals are going to a seventh game.

Boston needs another aggressive first quarter from Brown (he's done that most of the series). Some fans feared they wouldn't see one at the beginning of the game. They showed an eagerness to spill their own blood.

Bell's minutes could increase even more in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday, considering Looney, who started the last three games while Iguodala has been sidelined, is listed as questionable because of a sore left toe. "As soon as we know, we'll say it, but we might not know until the afternoon (when we) see how it goes or he tests it out". The Rockets take great pride in the fact that they've limited Golden State to less than 100 points in the last two games and think continuing to play great defence is the only way they'll advance.

Steve Kerr entered Game 6 confident of the Warriors' chances due to things he saw his team figure out in their Game 5 loss. They managed just 16 points in the third quarter, and just nine points in the fourth quarter. It was the kind of explosive shooting performance they've become famous for. Being remorseless from the opening tip is how they won 15 in a row before Game 4 of The Finals.

As the first half of Game 6 wore on, it looked like the Warriors wanted no part of it.

The Rockets went on to score the final three points on free throws to go ahead 3-2 in a playoff series for the first time since 2009. Let's just get that out there.

"I like that fire and energy when you know he's engaged and appreciating what he's bringing to the game", Curry said after Game 6. But we just stuck with it.

"I think we both blocked that whole year out of our memory", the two-time MVP quipped. "But at this point, it's all hands on deck, obviously", Kerr said. After Saturday's Game 6, Kerr once again brought up Thompson's personality as an asset in big-game situations. "He's very responsible for us getting here, so he needs to be here".

The team "dialed in" is another way of saying focused and fully engaged.

It might be enough, as the Rockets without Paul definitely are a more fragile group. James Harden is going to win the MVP award, but he tends to do his best work when there is considerable room for error.

"It's something we talked about building up all year", Houston's P.J. Tucker said.
