Open thread game seven: Houston Rockets versus Golden State Warriors

Here are all the Golden State vs Houston Game 7 details including the live stream and start time.

Houston Rockets Chris Paul will not play in Game 7 of Western Conference Finals due to a hamstring injury.

The MVP frontrunner promptly got skewered on social media for the perceived lack of sportsmanship. Now, it's looking like he's likely to see a similar fate for Game 7.

The Rockets played themselves out of the playoffs and they did it by lazily launching 3-pointers instead of attacking the paint.

Against a mere mortal, you might be able to get away with the shenanigans the Warriors have been pulling.

Added Houston guard James Harden, who had 32 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists: "We don't even think about that".

The Rockets definitely missed Paul in their Game 6 loss to the Warriors.

"We knew it was going to be tough on him", D'Antoni said. ESPN's Conference Finals coverage averaged a 6.3 metered market rating, up 37 percent from the same matchup in the Eastern Conference Finals past year and up 34 percent from its Western Conference Finals coverage in 2017. The Rockets star threw a shove in Green's direction because good deeds can't be rewarded, apparently.

Steve Kerr on Chris Paul injury
This isn't the same Durant who tore through everyone last spring and summer; he seems bewildered at times by the Houston defence. For so much of the National Basketball Association season, a Warriors championship seemed like an inevitability.

Golden State looked so bad in the first half that Steve Kerr, the back-to-back recipient of the Rudy Tomjanovich Award that honors the most media-friendly National Basketball Association coach, cut short his between-quarters interview with TNT.

Warriors: Curry went to the locker room with trainers between the first and second quarters, but returned to the bench with about 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter and soon returned to the game.

Paul, a nine-time All-Star point guard, missed the final two games of the Western Conference finals after injuring his hamstring in the final minute of Houston's Game 5 win. Why did they stop attacking the basket after the first half?

"I can't wait 'til Tuesday", Durant said.

The Warriors will be without one of their key players in their most important game of the season yet.

The Rockets' best would have been good enough to beat anyone else in the NBA Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Even with a record blizzard of three-point misses, there was never so much as a passing thought to change up and try something different.
