Warriors vs. Rockets Odds: Golden State 10.5-Point Favorites in Elimination Game

D'Antoni shrugs off 27 straight missed threes Rockets have right formula

A lot can change in the course of a few days. The back cuts, the split cuts, the things the Warriors offense thrives off of have not been there.

The Golden State Warriors opened as 10.5-point favorites to win Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets despite dropping Game 5, 98-94, on Thursday night. Curry also missed a seven-foot floater with 22.4 seconds remaining. When the Warriors get rolling suddenly Draymond Green's threes are falling, Shaun Livingston is slashing into the lane for easy buckets, and it's an unstoppable avalanche.

They failed to execute on all three of them. However, after being overwhelmed by the third quarter flurry, the Rockets rebounded to win 95-92, tie the series 2-2 and break Golden States' run of sixteen straight home playoff wins. It demands more playmaking from Livingston, who responded by turning the ball over four times in Game 4-his worst mark all season.

Either way, Steve Kerr isn't concerned. "That may sound insane but I feel it". "But I feel it". Eric Gordon then hit two free throws on the other end to seal the win. They don't like to do things that way apparently.

The movie sold $14.1 million in Thursday preview ticket sales , which is a record for the Thursday before Memorial Day Weekend. Not even Hollis tried to sugarcoat Solo's global performance so far, which includes a paltry $10.1 million launch in China .

"His spirits aren't great", D'Antoni said of Paul.

"I think Klay may have been in the far right corner so we had the floor spread. This is the worst situation we've been in since Kevin's been here". We know we let one slip away.

Paul hit just six of 19 shots and finished with 20 points, seven rebounds, and six assists, but his tenacious defense had everything to do with the Rockets' incredible effort. "He's one of the best point guards in the league, but if he doesn't play, we'll figure it out". Most of Harden's misses have been contested, but those are the kind of shots he took all season. He made two or three threes that just, his heart.

The latter worked. The former was not as successful.

The victim was treated at Florida Hospital DeLand for various injuries, including head trauma, bruises and a black eye. Officers detained Floyd and contacted the Volusia County Sheriff's Office because it was domestic violence case.

Iguodala, who has left lateral leg contusion injury, has been listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Houston Rockets.

That simply will not get the job done now that the Warriors are in literally must-win mode.

Without Paul, Houston has to play flawless and catch multiple breaks to have any hope of winning once in two tries; with Paul, though, the Rockets could be Finals-bound for the first time in more than two decades. Even when he eventually figured out what was coming, the Warriors - used to standing around and letting Durant do the work - didn't seem ready to capitalize.

The Warriors might be the favorites - after all, it'll be four All-Stars against one on Monday - but Game 7 is no gimme.

Jeremy Seaman, Jason's brother, confirmed to the The Indianapolis Star that his younger brother had been the teacher who was shot. SIU football coach Nick Hill, a quarterback that played his senior year with Seaman, remembered him as a dedicated player.

"We don't want to come and be pouting around", he said. Just trying to get it right. Durant is likely to be a free agent this summer, but luckily, National Basketball Association rules allow for teams to re-sign their own players, even if they are already over the salary cap. But there's an inevitable connection between sweat equity and desire, and only the Warriors know why they're trailing so badly in this department at the moment.
