Rockets guard Chris Paul will not play in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors on Monday because of a strained right hamstring. But the final score of 115-86 was not at all indicative of how the game went for the first three quarters.
Despite their injury concerns and even against the significant odds of defeating Golden State a fourth time, the Rockets have the Warriors right where they want them.
The pressure is mounting on everyone, including normally calm, collected Warriors coach Steve Kerr. Houston had 25 points in the second half and shot 2-of-9 from three in the third quarter.

Michael Rotondo was first asked to leave back in February and several times since through letters he allegedly ignored. According to the Post-Standard of Syracuse, the judge rejected the demand as outrageous.
James and the Cavaliers secured their spot in the 2018 NBA Finals on Sunday, with a late surge that led them over the youthful and injury-plagued Celtics in Boston 87-79, in a thrilling Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals series.

Warriors win Game 6 and Twitter was in awe
Wanting to win a Game 7 is admirable, but leaves room for disappointment. "But we'll have to kind of play it by ear for now". Houston built a 17-point lead by the end of the first quarter, making 8-of-12 3-pointers. "It's not about that".
"He can get the same type of treatment", D'Antoni said.

Whatever happened to EG3 in the second half, he was lights out in the first, hitting threes and getting to the basket.
Everyone’s Freaking Out About What Chris Paul Just Did
This slowed-down pace has disrupted the Warriors, whose 72 shot attempts Thursday night were their lowest of the season. But there's a reason the original tweet that TNT's account put out about Durant talking to Kerr was deleted.
"He just told me to slow down", Curry said. Don't be shocked if he starts Game 7 for Golden State. In fact, the Warriors trailed by as many as 17 points in the first quarter but Thompson just couldn't miss and there's no doubt the Warriors got the benefit of a lot of foul calls at home. The Warriors defense turned into offense. They've responded to adversity at every turn in this series, and there's no reason to think they can't do so again in Game 7. Throw in some awful defensive communication errors by the Warriors, and the Rockets were raining threes in the first half - 11-of-22, with Gordon going 4-of-4. Plus, while James remains a marquee draw, as do the Warriors, another meeting between them this year would make four straight Warriors-Cavs Finals.
