Although there isn't any correlation between Rockets and Astros wins and losses during the National Basketball Association playoffs, there have been times when it sure feels like it.
The series returns to Houston for the final game of the series on Memorial Day. Now, Oh has examined every matchup, every player and every trend for Game 7 of Golden State vs. Houston and locked in his pick.
The Warriors saved their season in dramatic fashion in Game 6 against the Rockets, falling behind by 17 points in the 1st quarter, and then winning by 29 points. Mike D'Antonio put Joe Johnson in the game for the first time with 7:37 remaining and the Warriors leading 94-79, an apparent white flag and a chance to get some rest his starters for Game 7.
The team struggled without its best playmaker and defender in the lineup, most notably dishing only 13 assists compared to the Warriors' 26. To do so without Paul is another matter, and many fans are already expecting a Game 7 on Monday. They were hoping for a tour of Oracle Arena but say it was sold out. Second-year G Patrick McCaw, who had been out since a scary back injury at Sacramento on March 31 when undercut by Vince Carter, received a roaring ovation when he entered the game late.
Iguodala does a little of everything for the Warriors. He starred in Houston's past two wins, averaging 23.5 points in those games and keying the Rockets' comeback in the fourth quarter of Game 4.
Houston'sClint Capela led all rebounders in the game with 15.
Luckily, the truth of the matter is not complicated: Win or lose - like it or not - this Warriors' core of Curry, Durant, Green, Thompson, and Andre Iguodala isn't going to be broken up this offseason. They played brilliantly in the first half of their Game 6 loss, scoring 39 points in the first quarter, and they remained convincingly upbeat despite Paul's untimely injury.
"I think the turnovers were the biggest problem". Boston is at home, where they are a different team and an undefeated 10-0 this season. Kind of goes hand in hand between getting good offense and having the stops. The Lakers won that game running away, 126-70, and took the series in five games. In fact, the Cavaliers became the first team to win a road Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals since the 2006 Pistons. They need to do Sunday what they did in that first Game 7 - the win starts on the defensive end, making LeBron work for his buckets and not letting the supporting cast get rolling. The Warriors are 16-8 all-time in Game 6 of postseason series. They can also kill a home crowd and stymie any momentum gathered over the previous few possessions.
In 2016, in another Game 6 elimination scenario against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Thompson exploded for 41 points and drained 11 of the 18 3-pointers taken.
