Steve Kerr knows the Houston Rockets are a much lesser opponent when Chris Paul can not be on the floor, but the Golden State Warriors coach would rather see the star point guard suit up in the Western Conference Finals. From Game 2 on, Harden is 12-for-56 (21.4 percent) from beyond the arc. The Rockets' 50-point third quarter Game 4 of their first-round series with the Minnesota Timberwolves bested the 1987 Lakers. In fact, that play - which the Warriors ran seven times in Saturday's win alone - has generated far more points in these six games (42) than it did during the entire 82-game regular season that just passed, according to data from Second Spectrum and NBA Advanced Stats.
"We're operating under the assumption that he will not play", Kerr said.
Indianapolis 500: Danica Patrick crashes out in final race of her career
Throughout her career, Patrick made eight appearances in the Indianapolis 500 and finished in the top 10 during six of those. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.
His 27 points were crucial in a Game 4 victory, while his 18 second-half points in Game 5 led Houston to another win and a 3-2 lead in the series. The victor will take on the Cavaliers, who beat the Celtics last night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, sending LeBron James to the Finals for the eighth straight year. You probably want to get there now if you haven't already.
The Houston Rockets, who battled to 65 regular-season wins to earn a home-court edge throughout the National Basketball Association playoffs, aim to put that advantage to use on Monday. He had a high IQ game and added 29 points. The Warriors turned to Splash Brothers as Klay Thompson drove seven three-points in the second half to help the Warriors fill that deficit. And then once you get them going and they get out of the box, and we didn't communicate real well two or three times, and then they just got on a roll. It slows the Warriors' offense down while making them more predictable, and that favors the Rockets' defense.
FDA warns against using teething remedies for babies
The American Academy of Pediatrics has informed parents to use alternatives such as hard rubber teething products. The traditional recommendation of a gentle massage with your fingers on your child's gums is the go-to treatment.
"We've got too much talent not just to hit singles like coach (Steve Kerr) always says and trust the next man ahead of us because it will end up working in our favor most of the time". Andre Iguodala will not play because of the bone bruise that has kept him out for the past three games. Not all that surprising since the loss will become insignificant to the Rockets if they can close out game 7 at home anyway. They've responded to adversity at every turn in this series, and there's no reason to think they can't do so again in Game 7.
