Get Golden State Warriors (GSW) vs. Houston Rockets Game 7 live stream details and complete box score, as the Western Conference finals scheduled to be played at the Toyota Center for the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

Game 7s are the greatest spectacle in sports, and there is plenty of drama leading up to the Golden State Warriors showdown with the Houston Rockets to determine the Western Conference representative in the NBA Finals. Klay Thompson led all scorers with 35 points (9-14 3pt FG) along with 6 rebounds and 4 steals for the Warriors, while James Harden recorded 32 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds and 3 steals for the Rockets in the losing effort.

Those inside the Oracle Arena must've feared the worst as the defending champions trailed by as much as 17 in the first half and went into the half-time break with a 10-point deficit. Durant finished with 34 points on 11-of-21 shooting, scoring 21 in the second half. His status for Monday's game seven is uncertain.

Looney, 22, tallied four points, seven rebounds and two steals in 19 minutes in Game 6 before being pulled with 3:25 to play in the fourth quarter, about a minute after he had re-entered the game to end forward Draymond Green's night with the contest comfortably decided.

Needing not only all their firepower but also 27 straight misses by the Rockets during an epic cold streak from 3-point range, the Warriors rallied to keep alive their hopes for a repeat.

Stephen Curry and Golden State turned all those Houston bricks into a road back to the NBA Finals.

Hogan signed the order while receiving a briefing in Ellicott City from state and local emergency management personnel. He said the storm could drop 10 to 12 inches of rain total, before it finally ends between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

For the game the Rockets were 7-of-44 from three (15.9 percent).

There is something appropriate about the Houston Rockets' championship aspirations hinging upon the availability of guard Chris Paul. LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers forced the deciding game with a win Friday night over the Celtics.

If Iguodala and Paul return, they may not necessarily be at full strength, but their presence will certainly make an already exciting game that much more compelling.

In the first half of Game 6, the Rockets were slicing the Warriors' defense up with their transition opportunities.

It has yet to be determined how long Paul would be sidelined if the Rockets advance to the Finals. If he comes up flat and the Warriors lose, the sensitive Durant might want to stay off social media. "So you take him away from them, it's a huge loss for them", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. It's a bummer that he won't get to play in the biggest game of his career, with a spot in the NBA Finals on the line, but that's the unfortunate situation.
