What time, channel is Warriors vs. Rockets, Game 7, on Monday?

What time, channel is Warriors vs. Rockets, Game 7, on Monday?

Still, the odds are against them; they will have to win without Chris Paul, their superstar point guard who is out for Game 7 with a hamstring strain. "There's no way." The nine-time All-Star got hurt late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 and missed the Rockets' 115-86 loss on Saturday.

Apparently, the answer is going down 17 to the Houston Rockets in a playoff elimination game.

"If I get the nod from the trainers, Chris and the doctors, then he'll be ready to go", D'Antoni said in a conference call Sunday evening via ESPN.

It has yet to be determined how long Paul would be sidelined if the Rockets advance to the Finals.

In five games against the Warriors this series, Paul averaged 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.8 steals, and 2.8 made three-pointers per game. If he is able to play, the Rockets will have a strong chance to take down the Warriors in front of their home fans. Kevin Durant can thank Steph Curry for reminding him that Game 7 is on Monday - not Tuesday. The winners of tonight's game will go on to face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. But when you have a Warriors' team that dominates the third quarter plus a Houston Rockets that reacts in frustration and loses control to allow a butt-whooping, you get angry and mad. It doesn't feel like a coincidence that the Rockets led by 10 when Harden dished out seven assists in the first half.

After their game 6 victory, Steve Kerr re-emphasized that Iguodala remains day-to-day with his lateral left leg contusion.

The victor of Monday night's Game 7 will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night after the Cavs beat the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals at TD Garden on Sunday night. They've pushed the Warriors about as far as they can and have a legitimate shot at winning the series Monday (9 p.m. ET, TNT).

And, if it is, there will be one reason for it: the Warriors' hubris will have finally caught up with them. It has only happened nine times in the last decade and this is the first season since 1979 that both conference finals have gone to game seven. When Tucker is off the court (61 minutes), the Rockets have been outscored by a team-high 56 points.
