Harden did get a standing ovation after fouling out from the Rockets fans that did remain in the building when the game was winding down.

San Antonio Spurs will meet Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals after defeating Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

Game 6 highlighted something that has been clear for a while now: The Spurs are the great chameleon of pro sports and have shown themselves to be capable of navigating just about any scenario thrown their way.
During the season, Harden became the first player in National Basketball Association history to both score and assist on 2,000 of his team's points. The Rockets couldn't find the open looks to launch their trade mark treys, and when they did manage to penetrate, Gasol and Aldridge got in the way, and it either led to shot clock violations, altered shots or turnovers.
"He's been like that through these first two rounds", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said after the win.

In case RPS-KXIP match is abandoned, then RPS and KKR will be through and KXIP will be eliminated with 15 points. He managed to strangle the batting unit of the Kings XI as he just conceded 10 runs in his three-over spell.
The Spurs led by as many as 28 points in the third quarter as Aldridge played like the superstar he was expected to be when he left the Portland Trail Blazers to join San Antonio in 2015. Houston were limited to just 7-16 shooting in that opening quarter (3-7 3-pointers) as their busy hands and moving feet denied Houston's shooters a chance to settle into a rhythm.
The Warriors are led by four All-Stars - Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green - and enter the conference finals with a ideal playoff record. "I don't know any Mike Brown". "I know they played well, and we didn't". "No matter what it was, we just didn't have it tonight".
The Warriors again are well-rested and healthy for the next round of their championship chase.
San Antonio was up by 23 after the third quarter and scored the first seven points of the fourth to make it 94-64 and send numerous home fans streaming to the exits.
