  • Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson celebrates during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets in Oakland Calif. Saturday

Houston Rockets guard James Harden (13) reacts during the first half of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Saturday.

The other Game 7, on TNT, will be Monday night in Houston between the Rockets and Steph Curry's defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors. What's still to be determined is whether or not Chris Paul will be available to play for Houston.

Meanwhile, Curry was vintage Curry, dropping 29 points, six assists and five rebounds while hitting 5-of-14 3-pointers as Kevin Durant added 23 points, seven rebounds and four assists.

A dynamic, star-studded series projected to be as captivating and compelling as the actual NBA Finals is going the distance.

Game 7 will be on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) in Houston, and Thompson said the Warriors will be ready.

The Rockets, who led the league with 65 regular season wins, ran roughshod over Golden State in the opening quarter as they raced to a 39-22 lead.

And no matter what happens in Game 7, one thing is for certain: Thompson's mind-set will be just the same as it was in Game 6. In Game 5, only five points.

"I don't want to go home", Thompson said. But I thought we had a couple breakthroughs that were going to lead to this game. "But we'll have to kind of play it by ear for now".

The score in favor of the Warriors over the final three quarters. Thompson was the game's hero, scoring 35 points. Curry did it again moments later from deep. The Lakers' 49 points in the third quarter of Game 1 of their Western Conference Semifinals matchup with the Warriors helped erase what was a seven-point deficit at halftime.

Boston gets their points by committee, they get the ball to the open man and he has to knock the shot down, whether it's Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown or Terry Rozier or Al Horford or anyone else.

Yellow-clad Oracle came alive, too.

That's how they looked in the second half of Game 1, over the final 45 minutes of Game 3 and over the final 36 minutes of Game 6.

"I thought Klay was fantastic tonight, not just the 35 points and the nine threes but his defense", Kerr said. "That first quarter we did a really good job of communicating, limiting them on threes, just contesting everything, making everything hard". Harden shot 4 for 12 on 3s. And during Game 6 on Saturday, they were by his side directing him.

The Warriors did see the return of guard Patrick McCaw on Saturday night. Kerr listed Iguodala as day to day because there's still pain in the knee when running. So the pressure doesn't seem to bother him much.

"He's devastated. He has to be". "A little fist pump, or him jumping up and down, whatever it is, when he's animated, that's good for us". "We know what we have to do", Harden said. "He's so integral in what we do and the spirit of the team".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr felt terribly for Paul - and others who have gone down. "Probably sounded more vocal than I usually am".

Kevin Durant is arguably the best pure scorer in the game, but his ability to be such a threat late in games has come into question lately.

"He's a great player", Kerr said.
