Warriors’ Kevon Looney questionable for Game 7 with sore left toe

HOUSTON — Warriors center Kevon Looney is listed as questionable for Game 7 of the Western Conference finals Monday night against the Rockets with a sore left toe. As the league trends toward a position-less brand of basketball, Looney has carved out his niche as a small-ball center. His ability to switch off screens and defend guards has made him an asset against a perimeter-oriented Houston team. Numerous times this series, he has held his own guarding Chris Paul or James Harden in isolation. With Andre Iguodala sidelined the past three games by a left...

Houston Rockets show heart, then let big chance slip away in Game 6

The heart was there for three quarters. Seven Rockets fought to cover up for a missing Chris Paul. James Harden dropped in 32 points on a night when The Beard had to reclaim his role as The Man. It still wasn’t close to enough. And now the Rockets’ yearlong fight against the reigning champion Warriors requires a Game 7 for a final decision. “Nothing changes for us. We know what we have to do,” said Harden after a Paul-less team was torched 115-86 by Golden State in Game 6 on Saturday night at Oracle...

Warriors offensive explosion forces Game 7

It all comes down to Monday night. On the brink of elimination, the Golden State Warriors answered the call and forced a Game 7, blowing out the Houston Rockets by a score of 115-86. The game was closer than the final score suggested, especially when you take into account that the Rockets were up 17 points after the first quarter and up 10 at halftime. James Harden, Trevor Ariza, and Eric Gordon had 53 points combined in the first half to the Warriors’ 51. The shooting was as good as the team has seen since Game 2. However, the Rockets went ice cold and scored just 25 points in the second...

The Rockets have a chance to punch a ticket to the Finals at Oracle. I’m going to go full Rocket optimist here, this is not meant to be a super analytical piece, but rather a piece spoken from the heart. Yes, I know Chris Paul isn’t playing. He’s been the vocal leader of this team. He’s been the guy that has not only elevated this team from good to great but the guy who has made this team a title contender. In this postseason, he has bailed James Harden out of situations that he was not there for. And yes, it sucks tremendously that he is not playing tonight’s game and that we...

Spiritual connections could be key in Game 6

This has become a series of the wounded. The Game 6 mood swings could be traced to a moment, a glimpse, even a gesture among injured players. In the end, Saturday night’s game will come down to Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant and other mainstays of the Warriors and Houston Rockets. But don’t dismiss the influence of Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala and Patrick McCaw. Paul’s strained hamstring, ruling out of Game 6, could go down as one of the most unfortunate injuries in NBA playoff history. It’s hard to grasp the fact that he won’t be out there...

The Beard is struggling with his shot again, but he can make us forget all about it with a big Game 6. The Houston Rockets are standing where a lot of people never thought they would be. They’re currently on the precipice of the franchise’s first trip to the NBA Finals since 1995, needing just one more win to secure it after a 98-94 win over the defending champion and purported greatest team of all-time Golden State Warriors in a second consecutive slugfest.
