Stephen Curry added 29 points on 12-of-23 shooting, while Kevin Durant had 23 points, seven rebounds and, most importantly, four assists.

"I mean, most of it is just breathing". Probably sounded more vocal than I usually am. Durant was on the wrong side of that performance.

If he loses against the Warriors, then Harden will keep the crown as Best Active Player Without A Championship, which isn't an honor he embraces.

On Saturday, the Warriors looked more like the team that swept through the West previous year than the one that has struggled offensively against the Rockets. The Houston lead grew to double digits within minutes and stayed that way through the break.

There's one big question that continues to loom over this game seven match-up: What is the status of Chris Paul?

"I saw a lot of things that I liked", said D'Antoni, "and I think we're in a good position". They had 25 in the entire second half.

With Paul wearing warm-ups and watching from the bench, the Rockets roared out to a 17-point lead after the first quarter and led by 10 at halftime.

A source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that Paul's hamstring injury is a Grade 2. With Gordon in the starting lineup, D'Antoni was forced to give minutes to Luc Mbah a Moute, still struggling after hurting his shoulder just prior to the playoffs.

On Sunday, LeBron James dropped 35 points and lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to it's fourth consecutive NBA Finals, his 8th consecutive appearance overall.

Now, the Warriors find themselves in the position that malaise has left them: facing a Game 7 here at Toyota Center against the Houston Rockets, who led the National Basketball Association with 65 victories this season. As for the Warriors, forward Andre Iguodala has missed the last three contest due to a bone bruise in his leg. "They've got great players".

So that's the tale of the tape. Paul has not tested his hamstring since straining it in Game 5. Obviously, they talked shop. We're going to do what we've got to do to win this game.

Note: NBA Finals analysts Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson will be available on a media conference call tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2 p.m. ET to discuss the event. They're champs. They were going to come back fighting and they did their part.

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

And, if it is, there will be one reason for it: the Warriors' hubris will have finally caught up with them.

Curry: "It should be fun". "I took that even as the way to do the whole pregame routine or how you go through two-line layups". So you've got to dial it back. Sweeping would be vastly preferred.
