Warriors Iguodala officially out for Game 7

Golden State scored 33 points in the third quarter for the second straight game while Houston managed just 15 points on Monday night after they scored 16 in the third in Game 6.

The Warriors caught a break they, frankly, didn't deserve when Chris Paul suffered a hamstring strain in the final minute of Houston's victory here in Game 5, which puts Golden State in an exceedingly strong position to win this game, despite it being on the road.

The MVP frontrunner promptly got skewered on social media for the perceived lack of sportsmanship.

Paul will be officially listed as "questionable" for Monday's series finale, but Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni says it will be "probably doubtful" that he plays. The Rockets couldn't have played better in the first half.

Added Houston guard James Harden, who had 32 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists: "We don't even think about that". Green displayed some nice sportsmanship and attempted to help Harden to his feet.

"I guarantee if we start the game out like we did (Saturday) and they jump out to the lead, it's going to be 10 times harder to make it a game", Curry said. This is the lowest MPG average of Golden State's centers in the 4 years that they have been in the finals.

It was the largest halftime deficit overcome by a road team in a Game 7 in National Basketball Association history.

Drivers compensated by hydrating heavily before the race so they could complete a race that lasted more than three hours. She was in very good spirits early in the race, when she started on the inside of Row 3 and was running near the top 10.

The Rockets should be really, really good once again.

"It sucks because you know you could win this series if we just had one more playmaker", Gordon said after the Rockets' 101-92 loss Monday night in Game 7.

During the third quarter of the Warriors' Game 7 matchup with the Rockets, Harden went down after his driving attempt went out of bounds.

The Warriors were clearly tight in the first half. Iguodala collided with the Rockets' James Harden in Game 3 of the series and has not played since.

Warriors: Curry went to the locker room with trainers between the first and second quarters, but returned to the bench with about 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter and soon returned to the game.

"We should have won tonight", Rockets general manager Daryl Morey told ESPN. He'll be back. Like I said, he'll be even better. That was the same game they broke the record for most threes in a season. Houston will be haunted by some of those missed open looks as well as Paul's injury.
