We know what we have to do.
There's no way of knowing Paul's status for game 7 until he tests out the hamstring, and D'Antoni said the team will reevaluate Paul on Monday morning and probably Monday afternoon as well.
"Obviously we want to have him", Rockets forward PJ Tucker said.
What's better than game seven? 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. Klay Thompson has been dormant in this series but he drained nine three-pointers to lead the team with 35 points, Stephen Curry added 29 points and six assists, Draymond Green racked up four points with 10 rebounds and nine assists while Kevin Durant chipped in with 23 points.
The series returns to Houston for the final game of the series on Memorial Day.
During the Rockets' stunning collapse in Game 6, Paul watched from the sidelines and looked like a member of the coaching staff despite the fact that he was wearing warmup gear. Can the Rockets defend home court and make it back to the Finals for the first time since 1995 or will the Warriors set up a fourth straight showdown with the Cavaliers by winning Game 7 on the road like Cleveland did in Boston on Sunday? "We still made mistakes, but we've just got to put a string of 48 minutes together".
I'll be honest. I'm embarrassed with how the Houston Rockets played in Game 6.
The record was previously held by the Los Angeles Lakers, who, coincidentally, outscored the Warriors by 37 points (73-36) in Game 3 of the 1973 Western Conference Finals. The Rockets raced to a 17-point lead in the first quarter of Game 6 only to run out of steam without Paul present to alleviate the pressure on fellow guards James Harden and Eric Gordon.

Heading into Game 7, all eyes will be on Paul.
"He can get the same type of treatment", D'Antoni said. It will be rocking, and H-town will be fired up.
