Warriors stay alive, drag Rockets to winner-take-all Game 7

Warriors stay alive, drag Rockets to winner-take-all Game 7

Curry knows that if the Warriors hope to return to the finals for the fourth straight year they'll have to get off to a better start in Game 7. TNT is included in the Hulu Live TV package so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch Rockets Warriors Game 6 online.

Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals will be tonight in Boston.

Similarly, the Warriors entered the West finals as favorites given their championship pedigree, they have two blowout victories in this series against the Rockets, and star Chris Paul will be limited or out due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Game 5.

The Golden State Warriors look primed for another NBA Finals berth after blowing past the Rockets in a 115-86 in Game 6 to level the series. Based on how the last two games had gone - with Houston coming out on the winning end of two close games - it would have been fair to think that this might be it for the Warriors.

Both teams will need to zone in on the turnover battle in game 7 with the victor in that factor likely taking the game as well.

In every game in this series, the team with the fewest turnovers has won. "As I said, the two-way ability of this guy hounding the MVP of the league, most likely, all game, and continuing to rain down three-pointers, he's fantastic". We can tell you he's expecting a high-scoring game and is leaning heavily toward the over. "We still made mistakes, but we've just got to put a string of 48 minutes together".

The Rockets believe they can absorb this loss and don't seem daunted by the setback, noting that they found ways to win in the regular season in many games where Paul sat out with injuries. Inside the National Basketball Association will air following Game 7. The Lakers' 49 points in the third quarter of Game 1 of their Western Conference Semifinals matchup with the Warriors helped erase what was a seven-point deficit at halftime. That, alone, is not enough to get the Cavaliers a win, which leads us too....

"We'll just have to play it by ear", D'Antoni says.

Houston will host Golden State on Monday at 9 p.m. ET at the Toyota Center.

Houston's Clint Capela led all rebounders in the game with 15.
