And, if it is, there will be one reason for it: the Warriors' hubris will have finally caught up with them.

For the second straight night, National Basketball Association fans will be treated to a Game 7. Yet another third-quarter blitz saved the Warriors' season on Monday night, when Golden State won the West and eliminated the Houston Rockets. The game is scheduled to get underway at 8 p.m. You can optionally download the newly revamped Watch TNT app onto your mobile phone or tablet and use your subscriber login to access the Rockets Warriors Game 7 live stream.

Golden State has been the betting favorite to win its third title in four years throughout the postseason, even as the Warriors fell behind 3-2 in the series.

Paul, who injured his leg in the fourth quarter of Houston's Game 5 win on Thursday, was a game-time decision on Monday, but the Rockets but the Rockets reportedly concluded that he just couldn't play through the injury. Led by Steph Curry's fantastic 3-point shooting in the 3rd quarter & Durant's dominance in the 4th, the Warriors were too much for Harden and the Rockets to handle, who as a team shot a combined 7-44 from 3-point land. Iguodala collided with the Rockets' James Harden in Game 3 of the series and has not played since.

James Harden and Chris Paul are the first to the locker room. Kevin Love (13.9 points) is the team's next highest scorer, and he missed Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals with a concussion. Houston and Golden State should be a thriller tonight as well. The Rockets missed all 14 3-point attempts in that quarter as part of 27 misses from long range.

Neither heart nor Harden nor game contributions from Clint Capela (20 points and nine rebounds), Eric Gordon (23 points) and P.J. Tucker (14 points and 12 rebounds) were quite enough for a team that, in the very frank words of its general manager Daryl Morey, have always been "obsessed" with toppling the Warriors.
