Chris Paul Out Game 6 With Right Hamstring Strain


TNT's Kristen Ledlow confirmed that the late 4th quarter injury was to Paul's right hamstring and he is now receiving treatment. Just trying to get it right. A bruised left knee kept Andre Iguodala out for the second straight game, and Kevon Looney started in his place.

The Rockets managed to go 15-6 this season in games Paul missed when they had MVP front-runner Harden and blossoming center Clint Capela available. "The guy's a phenomenal player and competitor and pretty much willed his team the last two games".

However, despite losing, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said: "I feel great about where we are right now".

The Houston Rockets are one win away from clinching their first trip to the NBA Finals since 1995. Tucker said. "To see our defense now be as good as it is, we still think it could be a lot better".

Kerr said there's nothing necessarily that Iguodala needs to do or show the Warriors before he's cleared to play. Tell us who was clutch in the comments! It's going to be a bitter pill for Rockets fans to swallow if their team doesn't make it to the NBA Finals and they're nearly certainly going to say that the Warriors are only there because of luck. He's one of our keys and we've missed him the last two games.

49ers owner Jed York abstains from vote on NFL's new anthem policy
The NFL chose not to consult that NFL Players Association before implementing the policy, a move that was met with wide criticism. I'm someone who's always looked at the anthem as a declaration of ideals, including the right to peaceful protest.

Curry brought back his shimmy move during Golden State's blowout win in Game 3. Surely enough, Houston has taken a 3-2 series lead, and the Warriors haven't swept a postseason series. "If you don't ever believe anything I say, believe this: We're a group of champions". "So, going home Game 6, the way we played tonight, if we can repeat that, take care of turnovers, just stay mentally locked in on the details for 48 minutes, we know we can get a win". Curry made four free throws to tie Rick Barry for most free throws made in the playoffs in franchise history with 378.

Numerous current Warriors roster have been in this position before as they overturned a 3-1 deficit against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2016 conference finals when Kevin Durant was in the opposing team. Gordon averaged 21.5 points and 3.4 assists in 30 games as a fill-in starter this season.

It's possible that James had a flashback to the early portion of the regular season, when he offered up similar moves in the latter stages of a December 1 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

"We wanted to come out and give them light, put smiles on their faces (and) clear their minds a little bit", Harden said.
