Warriors to activate Patrick McCaw for Game 6 of Western Conference finals

Golden State Warriors: Game 6 vs. Houston is the biggest game of Kevin Durant’s career Chris Paul ruled out for Game 6 of WCF, status unknown for Game 7

An terrible start was followed by three quarters of utter dominance, spot-on shot-making and handsome defense - even against one of the game's greatest and hardest to stop in Houston's James Harden.

James Harden and the Rockets took part in an all-time National Basketball Association collapse in the second half of Saturday's Game 6.

"I don't want to go home", said Thompson, who made nine three-pointers. Trailing by 17 after one quarter and by 10 at halftime, it appeared that what was supposed to be a march to a second straight title might end in a loss to a Rockets team without Chris Paul on Golden State's home court.

You better believe Twitter had a lot to say about the night's action. Even so, network execs could have reason to wonder if the lack of novelty could erode viewership - though if the conference championship round has taught us anything, it's that the best ratings tonic is often a seven-game series.

Warriors center Kevon Looney was listed as questionable on the injury report for Monday's Game 7 against the Rockets with a sprained toe. With Andre Iguodala sidelined the past two games with a left lateral leg contusion, Nick Young and Quinn Cook - two players Kerr would probably prefer not to play on such a big stage - have earned meaningful minutes. "It was really nerve-racking at the beginning and we didn't think that they were going to do it but they pulled it off", said Mountain View Warriors fan Suny Bates.


"I have to focus and try to do the same things that I prepared today to take into Sunday", Hill said after Game 6. The Golden State Warriors have lost four of their last six road games. "What do we gotta do to win Game 7?"

"Great energy, great speed and athleticism", Kerr said. I also expect CP3 to play, as he's too much of a competitor to sit out a game seven with a finals berth on the line.

Looney played 19 minutes in the Game 6 win. Klay Thompson led all scorers with 35 points (9-14 3pt FG) along with 6 rebounds and 4 steals for the Warriors, while James Harden recorded 32 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds and 3 steals for the Rockets in the losing effort.

Some hot long-range shooting from guards Klay Thompson and Steph Curry saw Golden State romp to victory over Houston to level up the NBA's Western Conference finals series. "So we're going to come out and be ready". Wait. 31-9? Yes, Houston hit only four shots in the last period, and Luc Mbah a Moute missed the team's only free throw attempts. "We've got a whole city behind us, and they're as loyal as they come".

This Houston group hasn't been to the Finals, and they haven't been to a Game 7 in the Conference Finals (the Warriors beat the Thunder in Game 7 of the WCF two years ago, for example).
