  • Iguodala Day-to-Day Paul Game Time Decision for Game 7 Ian Smith

Meanwhile, the Rockets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss of more than 10 points and 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a loss. 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.

"Well, I think it's going good", D'Antoni said in a Sunday evening conference call regarding Paul's injured right hamstring. "He couldn't push off of it".

Iguodala has averaged 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 13 playoff games.

It is probable that Paul wouldn't be 100 percent in time for the finals even if he rested for Game 7. And then once you get them going and they get out of the box, and we didn't communicate real well two or three times, and then they just got on a roll.

According to D'Antoni, Paul had yet to test the hamstring and has only received treatment. What kind of fool am I for writing down a ridiculous title after losing a horrific Game 6?

"More than anything, I feel bad for Chris", Kerr said. James Harden added 32 points for the Rockets.

Cavs, Game 7? "We'll just have to play it by ear". "They will eventually test it and see if there's any possibility whatsoever". In Game 6, they were not hitting those shots, and defensively they let Hill and other supporting Cavaliers get rolling.

Not only did he play all 48 minutes, but he dropped 35 points on 12-of-24 shooting and added 15 rebounds and nine assists. It's something you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me.

Game 7 will be on Monday night in Houston.

By winning Game 6, the Warriors will force Paul into making the toughest decision of his career.

ESPN matched its highest-rated National Basketball Association game ever with a 9.1 metered market rating for the Cleveland Cavaliers victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals, according to Nielsen.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters Saturday the team was "operating under the assumption" Iguodala would not play in Game 7. "We've got a whole city behind us, and they're as loyal as they come".

Instead of attacking this season with the same hunger as in past years, when they won 67, 73 and 67 regular season games and two championships in three seasons, the Warriors had arguably the most rote and disappointing 58-win campaign in National Basketball Association history, going through the motions throughout the regular season and even through the first 16 games of these playoffs.
