His name is China Klay.
Stephen Curry said the Warriors are encouraged despite falling behind in the series because they believe both games could have gone their way and that a few simple corrections will get them back on track.
It looked like a great night for the Houston Rockets as they had a 39-22 lead over the Golden State Warriors, but then it all fell apart.
"That felt good, to be honest", Thompson said. "Probably sounded more vocal than I usually am. Usually when I do that, it trickles over to other aspects of my game".
Game seven is on Tuesday (NZT) in Houston.
That, in a nutshell, is the Klay Thompson Experience.
Now, is Durant the sole reason why the Warriors find themselves down 3-2? Once he thinks he's on a roll, there's no telling when it will stop, and his quick release combined with his ability to work off screens make him almost impossible to defend. Saturday night marked the first time the Warriors had faced elimination in a playoff game since adding Kevin Durant, and they treated the opening 12 minutes like it was a preseason contest. Now the series shifts to Oracle Arena, a place where the Warriors have lost just one time in their last 17 playoff games. And roaring Oracle Arena went insane with hopes of even more home games to come if Golden State can get to a fourth straight finals.
Officiating was not to blame for the Rockets loss in game six.
"All our doctors are with us", D'Antoni said, explaining why Paul traveled for Game 6 after he had been ruled out.
"It would be a tough spot to put him in, with the weight of the game and not having played for a long time", Kerr said. For what it's worth, though, The Big Lead revealed that Warriors coach Steve Kerr previously had some high praise for Strauss so this wouldn't be shocking.
Paul missed Game 6 while recovering from a hamstring strain. We can even do more than that. "He doesn't worry about judgment and results".
"I don't think he's tested it at all, so he's just getting treatment and make sure it calms down and everything".
"He's so comfortable in his own skin".
"I have to focus and try to do the same things that I prepared today to take into Sunday", Hill said after Game 6. So the pressure doesn't seem to bother him much. "He just competes and plays". "You wake up that morning, and it's like, 'This is it.' This is the culmination of everything that's happened the last couple weeks". We're all devastated for him.
