The Warriors are one of the best third quarter teams in the National Basketball Association and they came out from a 10-point halftime deficit and turned it into a 7-point advantage. "It's going to be fun", Stephen Curry said.

In typical fashion, the Warriors were able to stave off elimination with a dominant performance in Game 6 and they made it look easy. He will miss his fourth straight game Monday. Thus far, the series between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets has been pacing 33 percent higher than TNT's 2017 finals coverage - the most watched playoffs since 2012. 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.

Paul injured the hamstring in the final seconds of Game 5 Thursday night following a fadeaway shot over Warriors' guard Quinn Cook. I really hoped they would win that game, especially after a hot first half. The Rockets' 50-point third quarter Game 4 of their first-round series with the Minnesota Timberwolves bested the 1987 Lakers. "There's no way." The nine-time All-Star got hurt late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 and missed the Rockets' 115-86 loss on Saturday.

"There was just no way", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said.

Following the 0-2 showing at the Big 12 tournament this week, Texas was hanging on the fringe as a regional host. Auburn will find out its postseason destination during Monday's selection show, which will begin at 11 a.m.

The Rockets earned the right to play Game 7 at home by rolling to the NBA's best record. Game 7 at our house.

So why would I put down a stupid title saying that Game 7 is a win regardless of the result when we haven't even played it yet?

The Warriors had some success with an ultra-small lineup that unleashed Curry, but as soon as non-shooters were on the floor - Kevon Looney, Jordon Bell, and the Rockets were daring Draymond Green and Shaun Livingston to shoot - Houston shrunk the floor and took away passing lanes, plus contested every shot.

Game 7 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals was a win for both the Cleveland Cavaliers and ESPN with the network matching its highest-rated National Basketball Association game ever with 9.1 metered market rating.
