The MVP frontrunner promptly got skewered on social media for the perceived lack of sportsmanship.

Paul received treatment around the clock in hopes of being able to come back for Game 7, but a Grade 2 hamstring strain typically takes at least two weeks to heal. Elie played with the Houston Rockets from 1993 until 1998.

"If I get the nod from the trainers, Chris and the doctors, then he'll be ready to go", D'Antoni told reporters on Sunday evening.

He missed out on Game 6 after he injured his right hamstring late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 on Thursday night when he landed after a missed jump shot.

The Rockets, meanwhile, misfired again and again from long range.

Paul, who advanced to the conference finals for the first time in his career in his first season with the Rockets, is averaging 21.1 points and 5.8 assists per game during these playoffs.

On Monday morning, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala was having a hard time being sidelined deep into the playoffs. We had an opportunity tonight and last game without Chris. Golden State found a way to overcome Thompson's three fouls in the first 3 minutes 39 seconds of the game, Durant's shaky start (three missed free throws in the first quarter) and Golden State's own significant absentee: Andre Iguodala. Why did they stop attacking the basket after the first half?

"I'll be good, though", he said. While the Rockets played like desperate wolves, scratching and clawing for every last morsel of carrion to ensure their survival for one day more, the Warriors looked like the chicken from "Moana" had just naively wandered into the Toyota Center in a pair of sneakers. 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.
