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

The Houston Rockets play host to the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals at the Toyota Center on Monday.

With Paul out because of a hamstring injury, the Warriors blew the doors off Houston in the second half of Game 6 on Saturday.

Andre Iguodala has not played since game 3 of this series after exiting that game after colliding knees with James Harden.

Paul came up huge in Game 5, scoring 20 points in 38 minutes to help pace the Rockets to a crucial win. The Rockets had a ten point lead going into halftime.

Tucker's 3 was the first of seven straight points for Houston which cut the lead to 89-83. On Monday during game seven, the Astros will be at Yankee Stadium.

On Saturday, the Warriors were led by Klay Thompson's game-high 35 points.

Stephen Curry scored 29 points and was the emotional heart of the team's comeback from a 17-point deficit in the first quarter, but it was a true team effort.

There's no guarantee that if the Rockets do all of this they can still win Game 7. Curry was that guy, he was the Warriors best all-around player on the night.

Houston head coach Mike D'Atoni spoke to reporters this evening and provided an update on his star point guard.

We're a little more than 24 hours away from Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. They opened with an 11-0 run to spark a dominant second half that made National Basketball Association history. He hasn't yet tested the hamstring, according to D'Antoni.

"So you never want to go to Game 7, but when you're down 3-2, you definitely want to do". Last year, the Warriors clinched the championship in only five games, not ideal from a network or advertiser point of view, so that kind of one-sided Finals series is always possible. Given the nature of the stakes, Curry will have to bring his A game to this juggernaut fight, ensuring he makes the most of his opportunities after missing plenty of wide-open looks during the last few games. Based on how the last two games had gone - with Houston coming out on the winning end of two close games - it would have been fair to think that this might be it for the Warriors.

The teams first met in the NBA Finals in 2015 when the Warriors beat an injury-hit Cavs team in six games.

"Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Paul is one of the best players in the league, but he added, "[Injuries] are part of the playoffs. The Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are going to the NBA Finals, for the fourth consecutive season.
