NBA Record futility dooms Houston Rockets in Game 7

29 May 2018

"Basketball is a 48-minute game and no matter how badly we played, how many shots we missed, there's always time to turn it around", said point guard Curry.

The victor of Monday night's Game 7 will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night after the Cavs beat the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals at TD Garden on Sunday night. Houston is more than capable of hitting 20 or more threes in a game - something it looked like it might do in the first quarter of Game 6, when the Rockets scored 39 points and jumped out to a 17-point lead.

"I guarantee if we start the game out like we did (Saturday) and they jump out to the lead, it's going to be 10 times harder to make it a game", Curry said. The Rockets missed all 14 3-point attempts in that quarter as part of a 1-for-21 second half from long range.

"We just didn't have that extra juice that we needed", Harden said. Paul was massive in the critical Game 5 win that gave the Rockets a 3-2 lead, but in the two elimination games to follow Houston couldn't enough shots down the stretch.

But because this is Golden State, the team that just two nights earlier did pretty much THE EXACT SAME THING, we knew why the urgency wasn't there.

No, that is not LeBron James' points per game (PPG) average.

Curry scored 19 of his 27 points in the second half, when he also dished out half of his 10 assists.

And since Paul was relegated to a sideline motivator role for the final two games, the burden Harden carries into the offseason for this latest setback is magnified.

Less than an hour later, Sherman posted revised odds with Golden State at minus-1,000 and Cleveland at plus-650.

James Harden and Eric Gordon did all they could in both Game 6 and 7 to get the Rockets in position to win but without Chris Paul, they missed a closer to bring them home.

Monday the team announced Andre Iguodala is out for the deciding game of the Western Conference Finals. So it's extremely frustrating ... we had an opportunity tonight and last game without Chris.

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