You have to stay disciplined the whole night. Chris Paul has fit in nicely over his short tenure with the Rockets and Clint Capela is one of 13 players in the league to average at least 16 points and 10 rebounds per game. Where is the Rockets and Warriors game being played? Kevin Durant crosses to the rim! We just play in the game flow. Yet, the Warriors mostly defended him without sending him to the free-throw line and giving him an open 3-pointer. After a game last night, playing in a tough environment here, this is one of those confidence building nights. By the 6:30 mark of the period, it was such that he had to be replaced by Francisco Garcia.
We come in here playing another team that plays amazing at home and for us to pull off a win tonight was great. It is what we do best. We played against a great team. Forward Kevin Durant has scored at least 20 points in his past 11 games and 25 of 26 games. Let us know in the comments below! Just be better at who we are. Rockets 48, Warriors 39 6:08, 2Q The second quarter devolved into sloppiness for a bit, but amid the chaos Golden State used a 12-4 run to cut their deficit nearly in half.
Few players have done more to push their team towards wins than on one of the hottest streaks of all time. Nonetheless, they grabbed more than 40 percent of their misses tonight. A message was sent early on from with a monstrous dunk. Down 17 points in the first quarter and 10 points at halftime, the Warriors used yet another third quarter run to take control of the game. Steph Curry was quite confident that this particular shot was going down: Steph knew it was going in! We want the ball to jump around and everybody get involved. You never know in each possession. Then in the final 3:57 of the third quarter, the Warriors missed six of their last 10 shots.
But instead of playing the possession game and running the shot clock down, the Warriors decided to go for the kill shot in the final moments of the fourth quarter, leaving the door wide open for Harden and Co. Then, there was reality television star Kylie Jenner, who had a courtside spot next to her boyfriend Travis Scott. It was a tough loss for us, but ultimately it was because we turned the basketball over too much. Then, Harden made a vintage 29-footer that left sealed the game. Drew Shiller is the co-host of Warriors Outsiders. It kept the Golden State defense on its toes. You still have to fight through and find a way to win the game.
You can always tell who doesn't watch till the playoffs. They were going to force Steph Curry to defend James Harden one-on-one, stick longer defenders on Curry to harass him on the perimeter, use Clint Capela's length to disrupt Draymond Green's pick-and-roll maneuvers, and pounce on any defensive lapses by kicking it out to their army of shooters. Give Patrick Beverley credit he played great defense. We need everybody to be at their top play. The point guard is expected to return by the end of the month. And even with Green and Thompson both contesting the shot as Harden fell to the floor, the ball sank into the basket with one second remaining.
Houston center Clint Capela is going to miss four to six weeks because of ligament damage in his right thumb, The big man sustained the injury in the third quarter of Houston's loss in Orlando on Sunday. Where can I watch the Rockets-Warriors game? It's a lesson that served Houston well tonight, but of far more importance is what it can mean for this team in the big picture. But it's crazy to think about how different things would be if Curry, not Ellis, was sent packing. The Warriors are the Warriors. I thought we competed, fought, battled, but we were carless at times. Their team is healthy, and recently publicly thanked his right hand for services rendered.
Drew Shiller is the co-host of Warriors Outsiders. We need everybody to be at their top play. Well it wasn't as pretty as some of us thought it would be, but the Golden State Warriors used yet another third-quarter outburst to take down the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. We just have to do it better. Here's how you can watch Warriors-Rockets, as well as the pregame and postgame coverage, live online.
The only thing I was disappointed in was our rebounding. James Harden led Houston with 32 points and nine assists, but also had nine turnovers. That ball has to move. Little wonder, then, that their perpetual spark plug would step forth and provide it. Talking a 17-point lead into the break, the Warriors appeared to be finding their rhythm, something that had been missing over the last two weeks. For comparison, the Dubs attempt 29.
That's how they solve it. We turned the basketball over and that cost us. The Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors in overtime 135-134. The biggest loss, of course, is the continued absence of Andre Iguodala. It's an interesting clash considering the Rockets utilize so much one-on-one scoring, which is something that the Warriors defend well.
Golden State Warriors host Cavaliers for the first two games of the finals series starting this Thursday, 31st May 2018. We are missing a guy that we went and got for that specific reason. Houston will be without the services of point guard , who suffered. Harden baited Looney into collecting his fourth foul with 10:29 left in the third quarter. We scored like 60 % of the time on it.
