Golden State Warriors' Andre Iguodala has second opinion on knee injury,

Thompson For both the Warriors and Rockets Game 7 all comes down to 3-point shooting

The Rockets will need to try and figure out a way to survive without Paul.

The Houston Rockets are out of the National Basketball Association playoffs after losing Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals to the Golden State Warriors 101-92. He had a 27-point performance in their Game 4 win over the Warriors, keying a rally from 12 down in the fourth quarter, and he scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half of their Game 5 victory.

"I guarantee if we start the game out like we did (Saturday) and they jump out to the lead, it's going to be 10 times harder to make it a game", Curry said.

In one atrocious stretch during the third and four quarter, the Rockets missed 26 3-pointers in a row. Coach Mike D'Antoni said Sunday that he's continuing to receive treatment and his status for Game 7 will likely be a game-time decision.

Harden and Gordon ran out of gas without another creator on the floor and even without him, they were just one solid half away from the NBA Finals.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala recently got a second opinion on his injured left knee and is still trying to figure out what's wrong, league sources told ESPN.

Following the Warriors win Monday night, NBA twitter was sounding off about having to watch a 4th straight NBA Finals between the Warriors & Cavs, and it's safe to say many people are sick and exhausted of seeing the same old story line. "And with our team, there's just so much firepower, we're going to get going". He did not play in Game 6. Clint Capela made a hook shot for Houston but Durant hit a long 3 seconds later to make it 86-75. Harden finished with 32 points, six rebounds and six assists but was only 12-of-29 from the floor and 2-of-13 on 3s.

More news: Warriors dominate 2nd half to force Game 7

"He's frustrated", Kerr said. He's done everything he can to get Houston to this point. Kevin Durant did, too. It seemed like this might be the year, as his Rockets held a 3-2 series lead against the reigning champions, but his hamstring forced him to miss the final two games of the series.

Their early lead provided even more false security for a team that already had to work without Paul in Games 6 and 7; that right hamstring strain suffered in the final minute of the Rockets' Game 5 win ending his season prematurely.

The teams will face off for Game 7 on Monday at 8 p.m.

With that out of the way, here is the breakdown on the Warriors' plus-minus as a team per quarter this postseason.

How can you pick against Golden State?

But if they don't - if they allow the Rockets to get going from three-point range and get their hometown crowd behind them, and go into the fourth quarter in a close game - Golden State's season could very easily be over in a few short hours.
