Harden harkened back to a team-bonding trip the Rockets took to the Bahamas over the summer, saying he would have readily accepted at the time an opportunity to play a Game 7 at home with a chance to advance to the NBA Finals. Houston went 65-17 during the regular season, including 15-9 in games in which Paul didn't play.

Paul injured the hamstring in the final seconds of Game 5 Thursday night following a fadeaway shot over Warriors' guard Quinn Cook.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters Saturday the team was "operating under the assumption" Iguodala would not play in Game 7. "The guy's a machine". But they trailed 61-51 at halftime. Scott Foster will be the lead official tonight with Mike Callahan and Derrick Stafford. Callahan and Stafford aren't too bad, but Foster is regarded as one of the worst refs in the business. Harden had to rest during a run by Golden State in the fourth quarter and Houston clearly lacked someone that could dominate the ball and score points.

Soon, the rout was on.

"We're not going to be coy with it", D'Antoni said. Throw in some awful defensive communication errors by the Warriors, and the Rockets were raining threes in the first half - 11-of-22, with Gordon going 4-of-4.

"The five guys on the floor and whoever else is playing, we're going to roll", Tucker said. "It was sort of a head scratcher. So just to be able to compete against a player like him and be a few shots away from beating him and his team to go to a championship is something I will always remember". "But the defense eventually kicked in, and obviously that led to transition, and the shotmaking in the second half was just wonderful".

Eric Gordon, starting in place of Paul, scored just three of his 19 points after the interval. "I'm enjoying every single moment of this". The Rockets also had 21 turnovers compared to Golden State's 10. "For the most part, I thought we were pretty good at that. but he still scored 35". We may not know until the afternoon whether or not the Rockets will have their star point guard. We haven't been in these positions before as a group and all of this has been a great learning experience for our group.

"Effort. Intensity. Passion", Thompson said of the Warriors' second-half surge. "(If) we take the same focus and execute the game plan like we should I have all the confidence in the world in this team".

LeBron James said he "tried to squeeze the orange until there was no more juice", after leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to the National Basketball Association finals.

With many of his teammates struggling badly in Game 7 against the Cavs, Tatum did his best to keep them in the game and was one of the best players on the court.
