Draymond Green, who guaranteed a series victory after Thursday's Game 5 loss, didn't score much, but he did about everything else on the court in typical Green fashion with four points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, four steals and five blocks.

"Everybody feels more nerves, for sure", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Sunday night, on the eve of Game 7 against the Rockets.
